Hey, just wondering, does anyone find talking on the phone as hard as i do? Everytime im on the phone, it just gets real awkward for me, and it always goes into those awkward silences. Anyway, any tips? I can't talk on the phone for more than 5 minutes

is it becuase you're talking to a girl or you always have the same problem?

I know exactly what you mean. Just do whatever you can to keep the conversation going, if that's what you're aiming for. And make them talk a lot.

i hate those silences too. i swear i was talking to my grandparents and there was a 15 sec silence. i told them i covered the mouthpiece and was answering someone's question.

btw i hate it when people talk to you while you're on the phone

Keep asking questions, then talk about what you were just doing. Especially if it was masturbating.


Just a quick correction.

Anytime I create an awkward silence i just say "awkward silence eh?" and they'll be like "yeah..." and start talking. I always throw in the eh? too, even though I dont normally talk like that.

That's why I usually send text messages, even though I hate trying to type on my goddamn phone. I also hate the idea of text messages, but I'm so bad at talking on phones it's all I can do to not sound like a dumbass who just learned ENGRISH!

I hate talking on the phone, not because it's awkward, but because it keeps my hands from playing beautiful music.

Someone's a bit cocky, eh?

When you get that awkward silence, like when your parents walk in on you ****ing your boyfriend, just say, "An awkward silence, a gay child was born."

Talk about things that you're good at, or you would do on a regular basis, anything you're familiar with. Like school, your future, anything you believe in.

This happens all the time with me on the phone. If I'm talking to someone in person that I don't know very well (especially girls), it's the same way.
#21
i completely agree. im not good at starting conversations. I usually just let the silence extends until the other person comes up with something to talk about. than im usually ok for a little bit.
ehh

That's good I thought I was the only one who had this problem. People are always telling me to get some goddamn phone manners and I just can't help it. And the akward silence thing is always terrible.
#24
I used to be that way. now I dont think about whether or not i should say something. just say random stuff, and see if a conversation comes from it.

#25
That's usually how it is for me. The only way I can have a good phone conversation is if it's with someone who can conduct a phone conversation well enough to keep giving me subjects to talk about.

I hate having to talk on the phone, even with family.

haha i dunno know. like if i sh*t or fart i know they smell really bad, but I enjoy the smell. Like I'll fart on my hand and then smell my hand. I dont think thats normal though...

I keep my phone calls short and to the point the longest one I've had in this month was probably two minutes.
#28
i used to suck at it a few months ago, until my GF randomly called me and we talked for 2 hours...


but no matter what, i hate to talk on the phone
#29
damnit, what pisses me off is when a friend calls me and they dont have anything to say. its like why the **** did you call me in the first place when you have nothing to say?
#31
I'm not the best phone talker either. Usually when I'm talking to someone, they always ask either of the following:
a) Are you depressed?
b) Are you high?
c) Are you drunk?
d) Are you tired?
e) Are you hungover?
f) All of the above?

I usually have a strange/monotonous tone over the phone for some reason. Some people find it sexy, others just find it strange.
#33
I suck at talking to people face to face, especially chicks...
On the phone however, once I start paying attention, I can hold a decent coversation.
However, I still hate phoning people's houses, cause having their rents pick up is awkward.
