• Yes and no. I'm a talker by nature, so I like talking if I'm not in a rush. However, most men think you hitting on them when you just want to chat. So I love the internet for this reason.

      Okay, now you've opened my eyes to something I didn't realize before. Thanks ; )
  • No, I just ask if they like my boots. :)

      I can see how that would be an " Ice Breaker". : )
    • Bootsiebaby
      I often break puddles of ice by stamping on them with my platform boots. Lol:)
  • 01-01-2017 I once knew a lady psychiatrist who was well known for her conversational skills. Even she had a hard time striking up a conversation with a random stranger. She said most people were afraid to talk to a stranger.

      That might very well be how she viewed it, but did that make it right ?

      Sorry - the above comment was meant to go else where.
  • Not at all. I work in a store and so I kinda have to talk to strangers. I've always been friendly, so I can easily strike up a conversation. What helps people open up is the compliment them on a price of clothing they have on. Such as if they have a football shirt on, you can ask how their team is doing or if they caught the last game their team plaid etc. Or a book that they are reading at the moment (watch out you might get lost in time) and talk about the series the book belongs to.

      Good answer. Thanks
  • Not difficult but I would not presume that he would want to chat unless he makes it clear that he does. Then I would try to be mostly friendly and polite and positive.
  • Not at all. I mostly have strangers starting conversations with me though. They tell me their whole life story all the time. I must have one of those faces. :)

      That or you're a bartender by trade. lol : )
  • Not at all, but others usually initiate conversion with me.
  • After seeing some folks at the coffee shop a few times, yes. And there are those outgoing moods i occasionally find myself in. Generally on the quiet side with those I haven't seen or met before.
  • sometimes , depends on who the stranger is
  • Yes, I normally just put my hand between their legs and wait to be either punched or have the favour returned.

    • Ice man
      So how did that work out for you ? Did he write a new song for you ?
    • we are dough 68
      Lord I hope not. He's been complete shite for forty years. P.S. What me and Elt did in the Cloisters stays secret for now. Await my memoirs, Sir.
  • sometimes
