Are you a talkative mom or a quiet mom?

I try to be the talkative kind but I really don't have much to say.

How would you start a conversation?

My son is playing baseball and I see all these mom's together talking and I say to myself I don't even want to be in that conversation only because I am not sure what to say. I'd perfer to be left alone. I mean don't get me wrong if you talk to me I will talk to you but for me to start a conversation...neh!

  • I am not a conversation started at all. I usually let people come up to me first. I never know how to just jump in.

  • I'm horrible about talking to people too. However, since my husband left for Iraq and I have few adult conversations, I catch myself rambling to cashiers, post office clerks, even the guy who came in to fix my dishwasher.

  • I am the same way!

    I'm only talkative with my friends. I would rather not make small talk at t-ball, karate or any other activity.

  • I'm so with you, except that I want to be in the conversation. I just don't know how to start a conversation or jump into one, so I mostly sit in and listen. If you ever need someone to just listen, I'm the girl, mostly because I don't know what to say, but I will pay full attention to you

  • I am very talkative. I can start a conversation with anyone at anytime. If they don't respond, then I just move on. All of my kids play sports so I meet other moms very easily and a lot of them go to the same schools as my children so we know one another from there too. There is a couple of things that help....First....don't be insecure about what they think about you. Just be yourself and if they don't seem to like you, then move on...don't take it personally. Secondly, ask them about themselves. People will talk if you are asking them about them. This is only if you want to. If you really don't want to talk, then don't. I truly love meeting other people and getting to know them and making friends. Its not likely we will ever be best friends but knowing people around the community is a good thing. I don't like to be isolated and I love to talk. People are usually very nice and want to make friends too. I don't do cliques.
