I'm the same way but I never shut up through text messages.
I was painfully shy and it took me a long time to realize that my shyness was causing me to miss out on so much of life.
Hi lilroy, do you have hobbies of any sort? Did your kid do something cute or gross today? Talk about your babies, that always gets a conversation moving amongst moms. :)
I'm shy too.
Don't worry so much about finding things to talk about, listen, and then go off of that. Ask them questions about themselves, that always gets someone talking.
People LOVE to talk about themselves, and the greatest thing is - once you've let the tlak about themselves they walk away from the conversation thinking you're a good person LOL
I am too
