I am not like this, but I get the horrible impression far too many of the people who I like chatting to are.
The only reason I don’t start conversations is because I’m bad at initiating and continuing chitchat. I only message people when I have something particular to say. Come at me with a subject I’m interested in (and that can include your personal life) and we’ll yak plenty.
this is me
