SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

Go to more social outings? I'm like you and have always been like it. I'm getting better at talking one-on-one because I decided to go to every social event that anyone that I even remotely know is going.

What this guy said ^.

I too have problems talking to people, unfortunately, no one can fix this but you; sometimes you just have to suck it up, be a man, and face that shit head on.
#11
I was always like that till I got a job where I did alot of talking on the phone. I used to feel awkward ordering a pizza and now I don't give two ****s about it or talking in general. Just be confident, making an ass of yourself is fun.
#12
I can't talk to people either.


It's because I'm mute.

stop caring what people think of you? seriously it is a psychological issue, not a massive one but it can be caused by a lot of different things. i used to be like that, i realized it was because i kinda worried i might say something stupid. but i overcame that, i started saying just stupid off the wall sh!t that made no sense. it didn't take long before i was cured and realized that people liked me because i'm a good person and in between all the bad jokes and stupid sh!t i'm interesting and intelligent. seriously, figure out why it is you are the way you are and do the total polar opposite of whats holding you back.
#14
I'm kind of the opposite I'm decent one on one but if there is more than that I always worry what they will think or if I tailor the conversation too much to one person.
Mr. Butlertron are you A handsome B smart C scrap metal or D all of the above

first off when you are talkin to someone get your hands out of your pockets and dont cross em either. having your hands in your pockets make you look awkward and nervous whether you are or not and having your arms crosses makes you look unapproachable. Also stand up proud dont slouch and look at people you look weak if your constantly staring at the ground. talking to people has always came natural for me so i dont really know what your goin through to help you but i do know that what i just told you will make people think of you better while your talking
#18
kind of like what z4twenny said. Some people are just naturally shy or antisocial; i dunno if it's a genetic thing, or if it's more of how your early childhood went (thinking it's more of the latter), but you'll never suddenly become social. You either have to put yourself out there and work at it, or change your frame of mind, which is what i did. There are several ways you can do this: you can start thinking of people as your equals (or less than equals if it's necessary), you can work out what really matters to you in life and tell yourself that how you act in a conversation is insignificant when it comes to the big picture, or you can just say 'what the hell,' and tell yourself that you can do whatever you want with no consequences. These things may not work in all aspects of life, but they sure as hell will give you the confidence needed to carry on an intelligent conversation with someone.
#19
Yeah I get a lot of dumb looks from older people that I don't really know too well. When I am around my family and friends though most of the time they know what's going on and have no trouble understanding what I am saying. That leads me to believe most of the adults I talk to are just too stupid to understand my sarcastic humour, and sometimes slightly witty comments.

I'm fine with talking to people but I hate talking to people I've never met when none of my friends are around. It's so awkward. Luckily I'm a pretty social person. So just go and talk to people and don't say something stupid.

Oh yea I forgot.

Being drunk/high makes you more social. But you can't really do that all the time.

this was how i learned to be sociable. Got wrecked and talked S*** all nite to people, next morning i woke up and everyone was free and easy to talk to.

But yeah just jump in at the deep end, don't feel held back in what your saying. Even just babbling about random things can make an interesting conversation if you sound enthusiastic about it
#28
same issue man,, same issue.. i just cant seem to carry a conversation with someone i dont kno much, or someonoe im not used to enough,, i just run out of things to say
but with frnds i cant shut up

but the answer is as above stated. u just need the confidence, then it dsnt matter wat u say.

plus this thing is like a hobby, its charisma, it has to be practiced ..


im still working on that

Animals are fun. You can do lots of things with them:

- Talk to them
- Pet them
- Test things on them
- Eat them
- Have sex with them
- Have sex with them when they are dead
- Use them as clothing
- Use them as a cloth for cleaning yourself up after jacking it
- Feed them to the homeless.. Alive
- Use them as a tool for rape
- Use them as a hammer for building
- Use them as a paint brush
- Use them as a desk
- Use them as a ball

The list is endless...
