I don’t understand how people can just go up to others at a social event or in a business setting and just feel comfortable starting conversations. Just the thought of these situations makes me nervous and overwhelmed. I wonder what I’ll talk about, or think that I might go up to the person and just draw a blank and have absolutely nothing to say. On top of it all, I wonder if they won’t like me or find me so boring that they’ll just want to go on to the next person as quickly as possible. I don’t even know how to attempt to feel comfortable when talking to new people.
