also, i wouldnt neccesarily say that the more you speak the more charasmatic/interesting you are. plenty of know-it-all assholes talk all the time, control the conversation. it doesnt make them interesting or charismatic. it means he lacks self awareness

On ISH.

Big difference between RL and ISH, I guess.

There really is no justification for what you do. It has nothing to do with caring about writing short stories(the only short story you know is fabricated non-sense you tell about how you "lost" your virginity), it's just that any dude that talks about how hot a girl is will add in details. Details like what she was wearing, a celeb she looks like, how big T and A were,etc..

You tell more about yourself than you do the girl. These are just things that I've noticed over the years.

Unless I know what I'm talking about, i don't really say much.

I'm kinda ridiculously self conscious and i over think shit. In school i was one of the super-quiet kids up until junior yr of high school or so (i don't why that happened specifically, but towards the end of high school people were more mature and the pressure to be cool or whatever dissipated and mostly everyone talked to everyone, regardless of popularity) . It kinda sucks. I'm trying to get rid of it.

If you can remember, about where would you say you rated prior to taking some of the key courses to get your degree?

I randomly start convos with a lot of strangers for trolling purposes, and I'm pretty fluent with them. I'd give myself a 8-9 there.

With my friends, probably about a 6-7.

With people I know who I don't consider friends, probably 2-3.

Who says there is no justification?

And I don't remember telling a story about how I lost my virginity.

And you're taking this message board a little too seriously.

Sober: 7
High: 9
Buzzed: 8


When I'm high or buzzed, I just say whatever comes to mind without worrying about my responses.

If I took this forum seriously I would create shitty threads about women I saw but didn't talk to or artists that everyone knows who aren't relevant in today's musical landscape.

To be a great talker, you have to share details, I couldn't imagine being friends with you. I would get so tired about asking questions that prompt you to share details that anyone with a brain would use in their story. I might end up bitch slapping you.

Kizzle:"I saw this girl today and she was so hot"

*end of conversation*

I have a friend like that. He'll tell me something like, "I got into a fight today." Then I have to play 21 questions with him to find out the specifics of the fight, such as 'Did you win?', 'Who did you fight?', 'Where did this happen?', etc.

Scale sucks. Plenty of people are confident and speak well but just run their mouth and are boring/annoying as shit.
