I feel like everyone who talks to me doesn't try at all. In most cases, I am the one who has to keep the conversation going. Occasionally, I get pissed because of that and don't even bother trying. Then I realise nobody is texting me... How do you make people enjoy the conversations they have with you? What kind of person are you? What is wrong with me? I know, it'd be better if I talked with a psychologist/psychiatrist, but I am not able to do so.

I know exactly what you mean. I try to keep a conversation going with some people sometimes and it always ends ups one-sided on my part. I don't know if it'll help any, but I generally try to talk about their interests and what not. It really shows that you are interested in them and wanna get to know them better. Hopefully from there they do the same thing in return and ask you questions. Of course things in life are never that easy, but hey! It's worth a shot.

Sometimes it can be hard to keep a conversation going but i usually try to talk about the persons interests or ask them how their day's been going or how they are doing. Humour also works, i tend to joke around a lot with my friends and it just keeps going. Just don't try too hard. Show interest in what the other person is talking about, ask them questions, like "tell me more!" Sometimes i start a conversation by mentioning things that i enjoy, for example if they've heard of a band i like. Talk about something that happened to you, share some stories, they don't even have to about yourself, it can be from the news, a tv show, magazines, anywhere!

Hope i helped.

Awh man this hit me right in the heart. If you were 18 I'd end up having a conversation with you.

Well honestly being yourself is a good tip. It also helps if you have common interests or likes/dislikes with the person you are talking to. It can be anything. Sometimes even a talk about favorite food can break the ice. I have a friend who keeps conversation going by sharing something weird about himself. Can't say that always works though. Sometimes it has the reverse effect :D .

Also I would suppose there are quite a few people around here that are quite shy or introverted. That's not a bad thing of course. It just means that you will have to be the main driving force behind the conversation. Just because someone isn't writing doesn't necessarily mean they dislike you or don't want to talk to you. If you keep talking to them people like that tend to get more comfortable and start talking more freely.

Of course sometimes it may turn out that it just wasn't meant to be. It may turn out that you and the said person aren't that compatible and conversations just don't work out.

The problems isn't with you. People overall tend to be unable to hold conversations and friendships online. That usually tends to be the norm, although there is a good amount of people that prove that statement wrong.

I guess I can't offer anything different from what already has been told overall, but I hope it helps. Keep meeting new people. Keep at it and you will eventually make some friends that you can have a nice conversation with.

try talking about things out of your comfort zone. see what your friends are into other than the obvious, ask them to hang out and sound interested when you talk to them if that doesn't work then you probably just suck as a person LOL JK

If it's strictly online then I can't help you much. I'm not good at that either.

I don't think over analyzing ii will do you any favors.
