I read another post a few minutes ago and it made me realize that I am failing in one aspect of conversation. Not so much having to pick up chicks but just conversation in general.
When its face to face with one or two other people, I am great. I often lead the conversation, crack jokes, keep things fun and playful. But my problem is when its a group of people. I'm shy, timid, rarely speak, never tell stories, just quiet and usually participate in conversation when people are directly talking to me or asking me questions. This is where I want to improve. I want to be the person who leads the conversation. Tell stories (which I suck at because I don't have too many stories to tell). Crack jokes. Make people realize how awesome I really am.
How do I do this? Like I said above I'm not even talking about only with girls. I'm talking about strangers, friends, family, girlfriends, girlfriends friends, just anyone. Even my immediate family, people who I feel very comfortable with.
tl;dr - in face to face interactions, I'm good. When there's a group of people - im boring and shy/quiet. What can I do?
