I'm not good with small talk and being funny and random. When I'm home, I can do anything, but when I am around my friends, I get quiet and feel like a nobody and the odd one out.
Dear Small Talk,
Most girls feel more comfortable one-on-one than in a group, but speaking up gets easier and easier, and small talk can lead to bigger discussions. Try easy compliments (“Those are the cutest shoes!”), no-risk remarks (“This burger is delish!”), and conversation-starters about music, sports, TV or headline news. Your goal isn't to entertain a crowd or be chatty and cheerful 24/7, it's to connect with a few real friends. Thoughtfulness counts, too. Be the one who asks, “How was the movie?” or “How was your weekend?” And keep making plans one girl at a time.
For serious issues, don’t wait. Visit our HELP!
