What ways can we be social WITHOUT social media?

 

Use this thing called a phone. Actually dial it and use it for what it was invented for, Hahaha.



Haha. Funny you should phrase it that way @stonepixie I saw a youtube video the other day where some kids/young teens were looking at rotary phones (the ones with actual dials on them) and they had no idea how to use them because they were so used to their smart phones.

If it's good enough for you, @EloiseRose, then it's good enough for me! Smiley Tongue

Re: [Chat] "Hello. Who are you?"*- Socialising- the good and the not so good

Loving the discussion so far- some great and amusing ideas. Now on to the next question: Why do some people find it easier to socialise than others? What sorts of skills or attributes/character traits do they have?

Re: [Chat] "Hello. Who are you?"*- Socialising- the good and the not so good

Funny you should mention that @EloiseRose! I'm writing a letter to my GP, although, I'm pretty sure that is not what you had in mind, so ... challenge accepted!

 

How can I reply to my past self @Lightuptheworld? I guess I could write about stuff that I shouldn't do that I had done over those 10 years. I could then burn it to say that I'm sending it back in time.

confidence !!

- they have interesting things to say ... sometimes all i can talk about is the weather or uni :/ boring!

- i did learn alot of small talk working retail which really helped me break that intial barrier

It would depend upon a persons personality. Some are more prone to being talkative and some not so much. Other people might not like meeting new people, but once they get to know them, they find it easier to open up.

 

Sometimes, a traumatic experience will silence someone in which they find it hard to talk.

 

Lets not forget those that suffer anxiety over the thought of talking to a complete stranger or experiencing something new.
