You arrive at a party and realize you donot recognize anyone.you are faced with a choice:start a conversation with someone or hide in the corner.if you find yourself heading for the corner,think again.making conversation with a stranger may not be as hard as you think,but it does require some basic skills.

i'm not very comfortable talking to strangers. even at parties where you know that you are going to meet people you don't know. i consider myself friendly but i am not one who starts the conversation or who breaks the ice. if i was to go to a party, i'd probably not go at all. haha. but really, i would just hide in a corner, feel bad that nobody's talking to me and leave early. pathetic. i'm talkative when it comes to my friends but different when it comes to strangers. i guess what my parents told me about 'not talking to strangers' stuck to me.

lol...oh yes,some of parents always say "do not to talk to strangers",so for me,i am not good at starting some topics with the strangers,and i would not like to talk to strangers too.also,when be together with friends,i become very lively and have more words.

To be honest, I won't go to a party alone where I don't know any people. I'm shy in this field. Usually I won't start conversation with a stranger. I always wait for others to talk to me first. I don't know if I talk to a stranger first what can I say. And definitely I will blush. So I think I'm not a charming woman.:( It does require skills but it's mostly related with one's personality.
