    Or more specifically, make the first move in starting a conversation.

    Nilfry, we are very similar. I only initiate convos when I'm feeling goofy/silly.

    >_> I do that the time. Some guys, however, seem to need you to club them over the head and drag them back to your lair before they realise you might kinda like them. :p

    Oh! My favorite web comic!

    This is actually the last part of a five-part comic. The first four parts are as follows:

    I want to get Part 4 blown up poster-sized to put on my wall.

    I'm pretty easy with making the first conversational move. It is usually with other guys... but I'm sure that still counts. From a point of principle anyway. Right?

    I never speak to people first either. Primarily because I'm painfully shy, but also because I've been rejected just about every time I've tried to befriend someone (both when they talked to me first, and when I talked to them first), and because I feel I have nothing of interest to say and if somebody else really wants to talk to me they can just do it first. My psychologist says if everyone took this approach, then nobody would ever hold a conversation, but the way I see it, some people are meant to start conversations and some people aren't. I'm the latter. I know because I've tried. Never worked. "Hi, how are you?" isn't my idea of something really worth holding a conversation about. *shrug*

    Any time anybody wants to hold an extensive conversation about Ojibwa mythology and fantasy writing, I'm game, but until then I'm just going to keep quiet!

    Ha, there's no reason to be shy for me, except I don't really find a reason to talk to anyone. :cool:

    i've never ignored the weaker sex and have always been able to start conversations with guys who didn't start one first... which probably had something to do with my having been married twice and had too many lovers [long term and casual] to count... ;-)

    my shy, and not so shy, friends look at me like I'm insane because I'll just stop random people on the street and strike up conversation. Multiple times this has ended in phone numbers and interesting scene ideas.

    Obviously women have to be choosier, they like the guy to have the courage to at least start talking. But I've seen it happen the other way around.

    Hmmm...sometimes if we don't speak first...we wont get anywhere. I don't like to do it, but... I will if I really like a guy.

    I wish I had seen this thread sooner. :)
