I hate it when I’m chatting with someone and have to carry all the conversational weight.
I can’t tell if they aren’t interested or if they just aren’t very adept at carrying on a conversation but it’s annoying as all get out. If someone asks you, “How are you liking it in this area of town?” don’t answer “I love it” and leave it at that. WHY DO YOU LOVE IT? The weird thing is, if I continue to talk, they’ll answer every time and even with some polite prodding will ask me things. But it’s like pulling teeth with some of these dudes.
I need a chatty person. I’m chatty as fuck. If you can’t keep up, I’m leaving you in the dust, pal.
Also, don’t open with “May I pay your bills and be your slave?” As tempting as that is, it’s a bizarre thing to say when you’re a complete stranger.
