I suck at talking to people so usually end up leaving gaps between replies (which, irl, is a nightmare) and Im just basically really damn awkward so usually my replies end up being 'k' and stuff (although not k, so thats a bad example :P) but this is only because im trying to avoid awkwardness. at the end of the day I want to be friends with most people, until I have a reason to dislike someone they are potential friends.

Maybe people who do this are like me and are just really bad at talking? :L Or they could just not care, which sucks
I hate my social awkwardness, so if they are like me I guess I can see where they are coming from. If not I just dont get it, other people are very important, just part of my personal values.

Here, I always start the conversation, when people start to put short reply or just saying like yeah , ok, that's good, well I stop the convo because I said almost everything about me. Short reply sounds like '' I don't have anything else to say" or when we just keep repeating the same thing. Ironically, one guy said I don't want to talk to him much, so me asking random question, then him reply same thing ..
I feel the want to always talk with people who share about him/herself , when I say share it's not just ''I'm good, how about you" I mean with likes, opinions, and interest. If we obtain a bond, I will talk more about personal stuff.

This happens all the time to me. I like long, meaningful conversations, but other people just don't. If someone isn't contributing the conversation, I usually jut give up. There's no point in wasting my time talking to someone who doesn't want to talk to me. I may try to engage them a little bit more, but if it takes too much effort to get more than two words out of them, then that's that.

I don't want to talk to someone who doesn't want to talk to me. Likewise, if I don't want to talk to someone, I wont.

Actually, this rarely happens to me, but what does happen is that people give up on talking to me because I inadvertently come off as the sort of person who does this.

If you've watched or read Azumanga Daioh, think of Sakaki. There are plenty of people that would actually like to talk to you, but are awkward and seem rude or condescending when they don't mean to. I have trouble responding to people when they talk to me because I have trouble articulating myself quickly, especially at the start of a conversation, when I'm likely being snapped out of a daydream or train of thought.. I love people that are really talkative, precisely because they'll take the lead in a conversation and keep it going, and I can just do what I like to do: listen.

So my advice, coming from the other side of this situation, is to keep trying and see if they're actually rude, or just a little shy. No big deal if they turn out to actually be absorbed in other things and uninterested in talking, and if they are just the shy, awkward type, then you could make their day.

if u want to talk to them so bad then stalk them while they leave or grab a hold of them so they have to listen to you.. meheheheh.. no jk maybe you should make an interesting controversial conversation or maybe they arent feeling too well or are just introverted so they dont feel like talking maybe for a little but not for too long... they just had an empty feeling of loneliness and only needed a spark of knowing they got fellow human beings to befriend to fill that hole up with hope.. arent people attracted to what interests them?
