    @Shams nagi you can start by relaxing & slowing down your speech. I used to tell myself I was better than whoever I was spoke to (just don't show it) to feel less intimidated. I never really was a socially awkward person but I'd always get second-hand embarrassment for others when they couldn't hold a convo :tacky:

    Being an introvert has nothing to do with being outgoing, that's a breeze. Its about where you draw your energy from. I'm energized in solitude.

    It could be that you find small talk annoying. Its stale and routine but necessary at times.

    I bring up topics you're supposed to avoid on a first date or with strangers (i.e. religion, politics etc.) and the conversation goes great from there. Even if we disagree it's a great convo

    I'd rather that outcome than being a conformist crowd pleaser like you

    If I'm a crowd pleaser for my views then so be it. You're just a weirdo 30 year old that spends his life arguing teens and students nacalaa.

    Exactly. That's why I do it. Good to get everything out there so there are no surprises.

    Nah. I'm actually 26 and life's pretty good. I see nonsense all over the place and it's a worthy effort on my part to talk sense into people.
