Talking just to talk, like asking how the kids are doing, how you've been feeling etc.?
Or do you need conversation to be more substantive to be engaged and/or interested?

When you are at a social gather of any type (wedding, family gathering, work party, church etc.) would your rather try to find someone to talk to and figure out what to say, or, are you OK with just sitting there until someone comes up and talks to you?

I like any form of talking to people. You'd be amazed how much you can learn about a person from idle chit chat.

It can't be idle chit chat. You must really really care to be here. ;)

Its not good form to carry over butt hurt from one thread to another. I just noticed you were a rookie so i thought I would let you know that.

Talking to people is a skill that many people have simply lost. The rules are pretty simple but most people dont have a clue what they are.

I'm not the one who will be punished so no butt hurt here. Also, go screw yourself. No sense of humor and just did the same shit you said people don't do. I don't care about your etiquette.

I hate idle chit chat conversations and I do not seek out people to talk to and if no one has a conversation while I am at a wedding or Christmas Party the better...

I'm sorry I have taken up residence in your mind. We can work out the details of payment should I chose to stay.

I hate it.

I can do it here a little... but, to be honest, I don't care how your day is or if you feel bad.
If it's not interesting or entertaining to me, I'm bored and won't pretend to be interested.

I have no clue what to say to people either in a social setting. Hey! How are you? what you been up to. Really? I could NOT care less.....

It's something you have to learn. Yeah, it's kind of stupid but if you don't do it the gossip mill fires up and says you're anti-social. A little bit of effort goes a long way sometimes.

A mentor of mine would tell you that you have probably pricked many people with a pin if you feel like that

I don't give a fuck if people like me or what they say. No problem there

I'm not going to pretend to care or be interested. Why? That's like lying!
