stop being boring, and start being interesting. Here is a tip to be interesting. Tip 1, take up radical politics. Tip 2, listen to rage against the machine to confirm your radical political beliefs

It's nice to talk to people when something good is going on at the same time or something worthy just happened.

Like after going to a carnival, there's a lot of stuff to talk about there.
Like the NBA Finals Game 6, that's a lot to talk about.


There are times you can't just talk to someone because you just want to talk. "What's in it for them?" -- is the thing you should consider when talking to someone.


""What's in it for them?"

I must be the only one who talks to people and is talked to when there is nothing in it for me its just polite to talk back to someone who wants to converse at least i believe so

I do think it varies from place to place, because I noticed on my few times out of my home state that actually people react very differently in different cities/states.

In Texas for whatever reason there is a lot of anti social behaviors that people have, some wont even make eye contact with you or will look down and rush away when you even say hi. When you do say hi and they respond, it's strictly short answers, It's sometimes hard to see who would be the one to want to talk because majority are busy pretending that they don't want to talk. I never had this happen as often when i stepped in other states though, maybe it's the difference between large cities and everything else because I have a friend in NY who says it's pretty much the same way over there.

Online though, I think it just depends on how much synergy there is upon the initial conversations. If it doesn't click it probably wont turn into a fruitful conversation (or friendship either if that's the goal). Cannot say the same for heated arguments where people get emotional and angry to the point it shows in their posts

I just don't have enough energy to care, just enjoy the little bit of time you spend with me.

and plus all people want to talk about is death and how fucked up our government is, and society, awesome, great, yup, that really gets me into a conversation, fucking thanks, I really appreciate the time we spend together, or the bullshit excuses about how you don't do anything with yourself.

I feel like it's partly because there's so many distractions these days and social outlets that if you don't come off as interesting to somebody off the get go, then you receive little to no responses. Also, some people like me just want to keep to themselves sometimes and don't have energy for others since dealing with people can be quite a bother for introverts.

Because it's too much work to get laid I guess. Or rather, they're interested in only the sex.

People supposedly having more social skills than you doesn't mean they are obligated to force themselves. That's just you being envious and holding others to a perceived standard. "Unrealistic expectations" is how I want to word it best. Your autism doesn't render you nearly as unsocial, in comparison to others, as you think it does, and it doesn't serve as grounds to overlook that many other people are afflicted with social ineptitude.

It seems to me that people don't know how to have fun anymore with the main thing distracting that being social media and people know how to talk on their real well but they can't hold a conversation in real time face-to-face and I at least know that I'll get a reply back with face-to-face.

What do you mean the beat? Rage isn't techno. It doesn't have that boots n cats type beat on loop for 4 minutes. Nah. It is an experience. there are multiple beats via the bass, drums, and whatever strange noise tom morello decides to do on his guitar at that particular moment. The rage does not come from the beat, it comes from within. If it was just the beat, the group would just be machine instead of rage against the machine. It is a symbiotic relationship of sorts.
