You are SCARED, INEXPERIENCED and LACK Conversational skills.
When you make LIFE all about you... Nobody cares.
When you make Life about the people around you,
everyone tends to enjoy your company.
Anything and Everything you want to Change or Improve about
yourself will require PRACTICE.
There are many many things school taught you that you (most people)
will NEVER use in real Life. You probably realize this by now.
The solution to your problem/dilemma is simple.
Depending on your personality, it may NOT be EASY,
but it's still Simple.
The key to Breaking the Ice with ANYONE,
is in the ability to make People Smile and Enjoy your company.
Always use Smiles, Humor and Compliments to approach people.
USE SMILES (to make them relax),
USE HUMOR (to make them Smile or Laugh),
USE COMPLIMENTS (to make them feel good about themselves
when they are around you)
Wouldn't you want to be around someone
that made you feel good about yourself?
This is how you win over people. Be Likable and Be Fun.
MAKE THIS YOUR PERSONALITY and people will look for/want
to be around you.
