That is what I experience. I go up to someone and ask them their name and then where their from and continue asking these introductory questions. The next day I see the person, they don't even look at me and say hi. Very rarely has there been someone who said hi to me first.Ok, so this is one of my biggest problems: I've just noticed that anytime I start a conversation it's with a question. I ask the other person something about themselves, and I've become very good at getting someone to keep talking about themselves for long periods of time. The problem? They never learn anything about me. I learn a lot about them, and they start to feel comfortable around me, but I continue to feel nervous because I really don't open up to them. I've been noticing lately how often most people will start conversations with me, by telling a story, or just giving a statement about themselves, or something around them. This is something I'm really bad at. I don't really have any interesting stories to tell, and I'm having a lot of trouble thinking of general conversation starters. Any suggestions that would involve both me talking about my self, but also involving the other person?
Its as if no one is interested in meeting me or getting to know me. I read alot of topics with people telling us that everyone is always as eager as we are to meet someone new, but my experience falsifies this claim.
