Referring back to my previous post about being open with people, the tips that are provided are really helpful! I ride the bus to work and people are always talking to me. But one woman, I actually started a conversation with her! She and I became bus buddies quickly. She does most of the talking, but I don’t mind. It’s just nice having someone that is willing to talk to you and not feel like you are being forced to talk to them. It’s alarming that a lot of people on the bus will force you to talk when you clearly don’t want to! Like don’t they know, headphones/ear buds are the universal sign of ‘don’t talk to me’? This also happened with another person, but I didn’t start the conversation, he talked to me first. We had a nice conversation about the route we both take and just talk about random things. The Monday and Thursday bus driver is a chatty person, which I don’t mind so much anymore.
