So ive joint UEA this year and apart from this, i have rarely ever tried to meet new people as i'm very shy. The shyness is not the main issue - it's social awkwardness with regards to making up conversation and holding it. Unless i'm with one of my flatmates who sparks and maintains the convo, i can only ever chip in ocassionaly. Most of my flatmates talk about films, and tv shows mostly as a point of conversation but because i rarely go out i dont know tf they're talking about.
Its very hard to explain this - i have friends i know for ages and its never hard to talk for ages as the fact i know them for so long theres always to talk about. I know i should watch morw films etc so i can spark a convo about it, but atm i cannot literally hold a convo unless it's about very generic stuff like (where u from, where u living), and the ocassional mutual interest we may share.
Could anyone help please
As ive said if i have a bunch of things to say, the social awkwardness wont be there
