so school started not to long ago. I haven't made new friends ina while and i kind of forgot how. In some of my classes, i have a whole lot of friends, but in some classes, im a loner. How should i get comfortable talking with other people. What should i talk to them about?
WHen i try to get a conversation going, it usually end withing 30 seconds and then it gets awkward because there's nothing else to talk about.

Ahh, good times.

I just started at a new school.
It's fairly easy.
Find a mutual interest.
It's like Superman reading the teachings of Jesus. The two greatest musicians on Earth hath combined forces. I officially quit music, as it has reached it's zenith with that cover.

Usually you introduce yourself, learn a little about them, find a mutual interest and then discuss it. The most recent example I can give you from my life is from Friday night. I was with some friends and some people I had never met. Most of my friends left so I was alone with one friend and one guy I didn't know. We started talking about random things then BAM! Doctor Who comes up. That's hours of conversation right there.

"Hi, my name is _______"
"Oh hi, I'm _______"
"Cool, I don't think we've met, I'm still kinda new here"

Try that.

Alright then try and meet new people when you're still with friends, that way you're not under the pressure of sustaining a direct 1 on 1 conversation with them.

Get them to talk about themselves, I for one, never pass up a chance to talk about myself.

Appear to be open and interested. If there's a discussion in class then join in and listen to others, try your best to be funny without being arrogant or a dick.

No matter what you do, do not smack anyone on the side of the face. It's bad.

at school a lot depends on whether you are presentable enough for whatever crowd you are hanging with. All the boys want to get laid, and if they hang out with losers or kids that look freakish then they will lessen the chances of them getting laid. If you are ugly just dress as cool/smart whatever you can, dont say too much and stay cool

How would i actually get the conversation started though? I feel like an annoying dick if i just wlak up to some one and start blabbing without a reason.
