I am a pretty outgoing person. So if I see some new people and feel like chatting I will just say hello. How long/ what does it take for you to talk to a complete stranger
It takes me quite a while and a whole lot of courage to actually speak. Usually it takes a formal introduction....or the person kind of cornering me and speaking to me. I'm not standoffish as much as I am painfully aware that I tend to make an ass of myself with first impressions and I am nervous as hell. It's a vicious cycle.
Me and new people don't really get along most of the time. I'm not the sort to actually say hi or anything unless I'm about 80% sure they're not the type of person that makes fun of people like me.
