    Im a very boring person who doesn't really get out too much. Henceforth im not very social...

    When people text me, we have general small talk and then its the end of the conversation.

    I've tried discussing current affairs but the convo's dead by then.

    Please suggest ideas because im starting to look pathetic

    If you got nothing to say, you got nothing to say. Forcing small talk makes it worse. And the the people you're talking to have the same problem.

    What interests you. What I talk about depends who I'm with. For example, I have a friend who worked in the area I live and now volunteers with a charity I've had a lot of help rfom. That comes up in conversation a lot. With another friend, it's football, another it's running, etc.

    Maybe go out and do more stuff, put yourself out there! Then you'll have more to talk about

    I know what you mean, but don't just label yourself as boring. Start with some interesting news story or sport or some film/tv show. Then relax from there and let the conversation move itself, without feeling like you need to feel every silence
