Current Events & Hot Topics Current Events & Hot Topics

I've been having a vague think lately... from a few conversations and a few things I've noticed around.

I've noticed that some people seem to need the whole world to know some pretty intimate details about their lives, practically as soon as they know their names...

A girl my daughter met started their first conversation with 'I've had 2 abortions'... I know a woman who, whenever she's writing to someone new (on forums) talks first and foremost about her race. Some start every conversationn with 'as a parent of a ________ child' [fill in the blank, everything from dead to terribly handicapped, adopted, mixed race...] I read a story about a woman who seemed to need everyone she met to know that she was a childhood sexual abuse survivor.

I've read, often, how difficult many SAHMs find casual conversation because of the 'and what do you do' gambit that leaves them stammering...

How do you introduce yourself? 

Do you think there is something total strangers need to know about you before anything else?
