Finding the right people is not that hard. One thing you can do is meditate for the right people to come to you or to pray to God for the right friends to appear. Always keep in mind of the Law of Attraction. Like attracts like which is how the Universe works.

Um, introduce yourself, talk bout the weather or ask how they are. Don't try to force yourself otherwise it'll be awkward. Go with the flow , it'll come to you naturally. Always relax don't tense or it might be hard to approach them.

With kindness, consideration and confidence. You should sound pleasant to the ear.

1. Ordinary people - who repeat everything that they observe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99E9fDgZZuE
2. Intellectuals - who enjoy practical debates and theorizing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fSlJaZrUhs
3. Escapists - who would prefer it if you talked. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yavx9yxTrsw

To find out what kind of person you're dealing with you just have to put out your antennas and feel your way there.

I made this post because I have trouble talking to people. I can easily approach just about everyone, and can usually break the ice pretty well. My problem is following up. It's like I run out of things to say. Does anyone else have this problem or can maybe offer advice on how to be a better conversationalist?


Let me start by saying: I really don't like the way you think.

If you took what I've said and applied it to the bigger picture, it will all make sense for you.
The basic principle is not the fact that I don't like the way you think, but rather people in general don't want to think about things that they can't relate to and that includes yourself.

The reason your having issues being a "conversationalist" stems from your unwillingness to make at the very least temporary compromises to understand and maybe even respect the nature of others. You've demonstrated it quire clearly with the following statement.


They would rather talk about Duck Dynasty or the latest Football game or some shit like that. The more I think about it I think I might also have trouble talking to people irl because I secretly hate them. ~AwesomeFantastic


Let me continue by stating that I know exactly how you feel and why, especially considering how I deliberately avoid party invitations from people "IRL" for the very same reason you do. (at least based on what I've read from you overall on this topic)

However if you want people around you to start talking about the subjects your interested in, you have to first get them to respect the way you think. This is social dynamics, you don't get to be the high-and-mighty/go-to guy just because you know a thing or two more than the other. Respect goes a long way and you have to earn it. But you can't get respect if you don't learn to respect others a little more than you normally do. (just to be clear, this doesn't mean agreeing with them. more like getting others feel more comfortable being themselves around you because they know you give them a certain level of respect.)

You never know what you can influence. Hell, you can even get "anime haters" to watch anime and go to anime conventions. I know because I've done that. And some of them are watching anime now because of it.

Let me conclude by stating that It's true that I don't like you. But it's also true that you are not the only one who is "going through this" and they might read what I've said and benefit.

So to whomever reading, I wish you have the best of luck.

Education. The more you know the wider the horizon and the more can be used in conversations. The ability to talk about everything is what you need.
