For me, there’s two ways to converse. I’m not nearly as analytical as Dave during conversation. At all. I dunno, I just talk, I don’t think about it. But thinking about it outside of conversation, this is what I realize. You can either talk or ask questions.
The only real way I know how to converse is by asking questions. Again, not something I think about, just what I do. I’m good at asking questions in conversation and that’s how I get the talking going. Also, I ask questions because I’m genuinely interested. I dunno, that’s one thing about me. So I’m good at getting people to talk and share.
But when that doesn’t work I’m at a loss because I’m not a talker. I can’t initiate conversation by talking myself. All I can do is ask questions. I dunno, it’s weird like that.
