I realized tonight that there's a gap of time between the moment people realize how little I talk, and the moment I'm comfortable enough around them to talk.
I get stuck in the stagnant waters of no-man's land quite a lot. It's like a first impression. The damage is done.
What do you do to keep the doors open between you and others?
edit: not really a bad first impression. When people think you're quiet, they think you don't want to talk and that's not always true. That's the problem.
