I find I am my own worst enemy when it comes to this. I can initiate conversations and keep them going, but often I just don't have energy to bother. I think the problem people have with me is sometimes i'm really bubbly and talkative and sometimes (more often really) I just blank people. I must come across as so rude but I just don't have it in me to keep it up on a daily basis.
