What makes a person boring? watch


    (Original post by oxbridgecrazed)
    People who don't contribute to the conversation.my school friends are like this and i'm always the one to think of what to talk about.i guess we just don't have common interests but surely they could think of something?
    I agree. I am the conversation pusher. Sadly though, the problem is exacerbated when talking with girls.....

    I do know what you're talking about!

    But lately I've been thinking my own approach to people. How do you actually know whether people are normal or not? A 'normal' looking individual could have experienced lots of things, that they're not keen on talking about with people they aren't close to. So if you aren't close to them, you'd never know they had a secret.

    The idea of normal really seems to become pointless in that sense. People could have their own little quirks, that they just aren't very expressive about initially.
    oh, i totally agree. i think that's definitely the case for a lot of people; you don't really get to see the 'real' them until you know them quite well, but sometimes it's just obvious. not in every case, but in a lot of them. i think i'm just bitter at the moment because i've had one too many experiences of it.
