    Ive read that you should talk to people about themselves but my frinds are not very talkative either, most questions as conversation starters are either to generic with friends or too awkward I find.
    I was think about discussing would you rather questions, thats it.
    Any ideas

    anyone got any actual advice?

    Start by talking to random people, on the bus, shops, cafes etc. They won't see you again so you can mess up as much as you like.
    Then you'll slowly get use to it.

    Try not to overthink it. I find if I think about it too much, it becomes more of an issue for me.

    I find going with the flow helps. I don't always ask questions. For example, I have a friend who I talk to a lot. You get the usual "how was your week?" type conversations. We sometimes talk about other things. For example, he mentioned to me that he'd gone to Dublin for a few days and I'd asked him for some advice.

    I find people who talk about themselves all the time bore me. I used to know someone who talked about his girlfriend, himself, work and his children. Yawn.
