>tfw you learned your social skills from video games and now the way you talk to people irl is by asking lots and lots of questions and you're always perplexed when it doesn't progress the dialogue or when people become uncomfortable

Go try talking to somebody like you're an RPG protagonist. It's an interesting experience.

Asking lots of questions often does "progress the dialogue" though. Some people fucking love talking.
>>
>>278106838
Stilted dialogue, awkward pauses, asking questions and rarely saying much yourself.
>>
>>278106967
Literally the best way to converse. People like talking about themselves.
>>
>>278106660
That's basically all I do. Not because I learned to talk from games, but because RPG protagonists are socially inept aspies who have unnatural conversations.
When you talk to someone in a game you either want a quest or get more information.
OPs pic pretty much sums up how I talk to people. That's the easy mode of talking.

I legitimately learned how to human by playing games like Baldurs Gate as a kid, because I had crazy social anxiety and my parents let me live in near complete isolation.

Thankfully there are worse games to learn from.

>two seconds
are you a girl?
>>
>>278106967
Yeah, Ive learned to almost exclusively ask questions. Each answer will open itself up to new questions you can ask, making the conversation move along. Pepper in some anecdotes about yourself when appropriate and people will love you. Most do really love talking about themselves.

Another thing I notice is when people ask you a question they are really wanting it to be asked back to them.
>>

Ok two seconds may have been a bit of an over exaggeration. I give people ample time to say something, okay? Also, most of the time I do stop talking its usually a 'yeah or cool' response.

what kind of people have you been meeting

You don't ask them personal questions, man. Just ask them simple questions related to the topic at hand to make it seem like you are interested/paying attention to keep them talking about it.

I'm really paranoid about repeating myself, because it's just fucking sick and weird. Like you have Alzheimer's or something. And then I have to listen to friends tell me about the same shit that happened for the third or fourth time, but don't want to interrupt because it keeps the discussion going...Are conversations with me really that forgettable? Just how little does one have to care about people, to not even remember what you've told them?

It's your own fault, if you can't read your audience. A little smile, a well-timed eye-contact, adjusting the tone of your voice, wording things right, there are dozens of ways to make it clear even to a fucking robot that you're being sarcastic and get everyone to laugh. If you can't do it, then just stop trying to be a comedian.

That's right, you would. That's why I came back here, I wasn't even able to say anything but one word replies a few months back. Still struggle with speaking because I don't talk to anybody but my mailman and the groceries delivery guy. Considering talking to myself just so that I'll be able to talk when I need to.

I suspect a lot of underage people visited 4chan a few times.
I remember sometimes lurking occasionally when I was 14, lurking regularly at 16 and shitposting at 18.

This. Except my friends think I hate everything including life itself. I don't even do it on purpose, when something sucks, I..well I try to not be an asshole about it but It just slips out and I end up speaking my mind.

Not the same guy but if you have problems making and keeping eye contact try looking at the skin between the eyes instead. It will be more comfortable and you keep the illusion of eye contact

I know that feel. My voice sounds way better when speaking English, because my native tongue forces you to breathe in a very different rhythm.

If it's conversation with someone then politely look into their eyes with a light smile on the whole time.

If not in conversation and it's a girl looking at you, glance into their eyes for about a half second to a second and then casually glance away.

If not in conversation and it's a guy looking at you, stare him down until he glances away.

If you have problems looking into people's eyes and keeping your cool (shows weakness of character but whatever) then try this trick: stare at their nose. To them it will seem like you're looking into their eyes. It's impossible to tell the difference unless they're incredibly close.

Stop trying to imitate the cool characters, and start imitating the nice ones, the ones that everyone likes.

I guess i wouldnt be so bad at socializing if i knew people who share the same interests as me. Its really hard talking about something you dont like for a long time and i guess thats why i dont have many close friends. Of all the people i know, not a single one watches anime or read books, we dont watch the same tv shows, only a few play vidya and even then they only play League of legends.
I always considered myself boring, but maybe its just because i dont know the right people. I cant have a 5 minutes conversation about footbal, but i can discuss vidya for hours. Im not boring im just weird.

This post ended up being a conversation with myself but im going to post it anyway because i already tiped all this.

This shit happens to me sometimes. I think that I act like an idiot and everyone thinks I'm weird and then a friend will mention how much everyone liked me. I think they're just saying it to make me feel better or to be polite or something.

I might have low self esteem

Holy shit this. I want to talk about myself so bad but don't want to start off as a sparging attention whore. Why does nobody ask back?

It's a good trait. It makes you improve yourself more than other people would.

Yes Snake! Like Confucius once said: Ching chong, ding dong! It means that those who speak make friends with those who listen.

i know it's hard to believe but everyone doesn't really hate each other. Most people do, and most people also lie more than necessary but while i can't say i have awesome friends like in vidya, i can honestly say that i have friends i would die for. I realized at one point that holding any value towards anyone who hasn't been a positive part in your life at some point makes no sense. Just take new people and faces as neutrals, and build on that. I still struggle with introvertness, probably not as bad as you but enough to make me the "silent" person. And i mean, im good looking and have gotten pussy but alot of times i'm just drawn back behind my eyes if you know what i mean.

Its good to be different, anon. Lots of people have the same type of problem as you. I think most normal people behave like robots who spout the same things over and over and have to follow the latest trend.

They always like to talk about what their day was like, so listen to that part and see if you can possibly relate. They like jelly beans? You say "Ill eat a whole jar of 'em and even the black ones. Or you hate jelly beans, but say it politely. People like to talk about uninteresting shit most of the time, but if you get the chance to know them, maybe they'll have some savant of somthing common
