I don't talk alot or as much as others because at times I don't know what to say. Sometimes I don't feel like talking either. I see some people who talk all the time and they are more readily accepted by others than people who are shy and don't talk alot.

Tell them it's because you love being asked those kinds of questions and that's why you remain quiet, eagerly awaiting the next time someone asks you.

Depends on how they ask if they ask rudely it's "because I'm trying to get you to go away" if they're polite about it it's "I don't particularly want to say anything" sometimes "I don't have anything to say" if someone is trying to talk to me I've used "I'm listening".

That's just how I roll.

Where am I going and why am I in this little handbasket?

Well I almost never get that since when I am in a group of friends I have no trouble talking and when I am alone I ussually dont stay in one spot.

A easy answer to that question is telling them that you are just a shy guy and thats it. Who cares what they think about you

Your not a failure if you still have something to prove.
Keep your head up and hope for the best, Things will hopefully start going your way

When I get asked this I just try to give a normal answer like "that's just who I am" and such, sometimes I reply honestly and just say that I'm really shy(without trying to come off as a complete loser or snob). I also don't try to make myself look slick or give a smart answer.

I used to get asked this alot. I used to just answer " I don't know/have anything to say" but peple can be awkward then. They used to say "why don't you smile" which Is just stupid , not even they when they're on their own smile like a crazy person. I'm sure if I had had something funny or positive to think about I would of Been smiling.
