There’s not a whole lot to say anymore.
Don’t get me wrong, I love talking – give me intelligent conversation about something I take an interest in, and I can probably talk for a while before I start to lose interest. Usually it’s just the small talk I have an issue with.
Ahh yes, the small talk. That subject which most of us who are socially inept choose to ignore almost completely, while at the same time struggling to comprehend exactly what it is and how it works.
And I suppose that’s the thing – for many of us geeks and nerds alike, small talk just doesn’t. It’s not that we’re inherently bad at it, it’s just that it’s made all the more awkward for us who spend more time online than girls spend in the bathroom.
I suppose when it comes down to it, i don’t really care what the weather is like. I really could not care less about the weather.
I also find I hard to hold a conversation with someone who doesn’t actually add anything of value to the conversation – if I’m not getting anything from you in return, I’m sure as hell not going to volunteer much in the first place. This’ll usually lead to a stagnant conversation.
Don’t event get me started on conversations with the opposite sex. You might think it’s hilarious when we get tongue-tied in front of an incredibly attractive blonde, or the cutest brunette you’ve ever laid eyes on, but I can tell you right now it’s not actually that funny. More embarassing than anything else, but again, I struggle to find a reason for why it happens in the first place – there’s no real reason why it happens, it just does. Realistically the attractive blonde or cute brunette isn’t different to you in any other way; they still have two eyes, one nose, two ears and so on – you can start to see where this is going, yeah?
