Casually Explained: How to Have a Normal Conversation

Out here forgetting how to make videos, unsure of if I stole Jimmy's quote off of him, my own tweet, or someone else, and also just generally being envious of people with driver's licenses. It's also Jan's birthday tomorrow so say hbd but it didn't make it into the pictures because I drew them 2 days ago.

    *STEP 1:* Respond to strangers, but make them wish they didn't engage in small talk. Instead of searching every dark crevice of your socially awkward brain for an appropriate and thoughtful response to some guy's words that you don't actually care about, just don't. Stop. Quit doing it. It's painful for everyone, especially for you. *Step 2:* Now that you're free from trying to be a functional human being, learn a simple phrase, and use that one phrase, every time. Start by expressing interest in what the other person is saying, but don't leave it at that. It's rude. Instead, state that you're going to leave it at that. Also shout it in an obnoxious and facetious tone. Don't say "Wow, that's cool," instead say "WOW THAT'S PRETTY COOL MAN, ANYWAY I'M GONNA GO NOW" This response will stun and confuse your opponent long enough for you to escape, allowing you to emerge victorious. If you cannot escape immediately after acknowledging the aggressor's existence, simply hold off on excusing yourself. Remember, never respond appropriately, and don't stop yelling! Bonus points if you cut them off mid-sentence. *Step 3:* You've expressed false interest, created an opportunity, now you need to leave. Start by shifting your focus from the perpetrator to literally anything else. This is as simple as turning your head. Then, turn your body as well, and lastly, just leave. Here's an example of a situation where you cannot immediately escape your attacker, such as when in an elevator: Enemy: "It's pretty hot out t-" You: "HAHA YEAH I GET THAT A LOT MAN!" Enemy: "....I-" You: "I KNOW, SHE'S THE WORST! OH, HERE'S MY FLOOR! IT'S BEEN GREAT BUT I'M GONNA DO SOMETHING ELSE NOW!" Let me know if this helped you!

    Can I just point out that I hate greeters. People who say hello to you as you're entering a store like they know you. But really, they're a stranger and you shouldn't talk to them unless you want to get kidnapped. Alternately, when you walk up to them and ask them how they've been and try to have a conversation with them they look at you like you're crazy. Bro, you talked to me first! Why did you do that if you didn't want to know all about my day and how my cats are doing? What's up with that?

    Had a friend in school who was super intelligent and funny. A really strange kind of humor, pretty dirty though. He tended to be in the middle of every group making jokes, mostly at others expense but it was still funny when one wasn't at the receiving end. Really charismatic guy. Anyway, I never met a guy who was as bad at dating or talking to girls romantically than him. He made jokes with girls, even sexual ones but as soon as the girls seemed interested he lost all his wits and tried to get out of the situation. He eventually lost his virginity, but to some hookers as far as I know. He just couldn‘t deal with this stuff.

    When I moved into my new house a neighbour, who I had sort of become friendly with, invited me to their house for a cup of tea some time. "No thanks," I cheerily replied, "I'll see you later." and off I went with a little wave and a smile. The next day at work it suddenly dawned on me that they weren't asking me to go to their house for a cup of tea, but for a chat and to hang out, with or without a cup of tea if I wanted. After all, he wasn't going to force me to have a cup of tea. I said "No thanks." because I don't drink tea, and he invited me round for a cup of tea. Oh god I'm an idiot! Hot shame flowed though my body like lava. We didn't even say hi again after that. Hi everyone, my name is Portaccio and I am socially inept.

    It's simple. Instead of thinking of the aspects of a conversation, people, or yourself, think about what you'd like to say. Just listen and form your opinion on what's said. It's about focusing on conversing rather than falling into a trope.
