That's what I always thought! It made it less awkward because you didn't have to talk!!!
If money wasn't an option, where would you go in a week and what would you do? You can travel to multiple places!
If money really wasn't an object, I'd gather my entire family for a vacation somewhere. My first thought was Disney World, but a cruise would be nice too or just, idk, renting a house (well, houses, really) somewhere nice would be fun too!
I'm also quite shy so I see exactly where you are coming from.
What brings you out of your shell when you are surrounded by strangers?
(Say you are at a party for example)
I'm terrible at talking about myself. I'm better at specific questions rather than open-ended ones. Like, I hate being asked what I've been up to lately. I'll always answer "oh, not much", but a specific question, like, what did you do last night can get a better answer.
Topics like Disney movies and video games usually get me to open up. I don't like talking about politics, even with people who agree with me.
In general conversation, what topics do you consider off limits?
Politics, sports and cars (boring! ) and religion. I actually like discussing religion under the right conditions (my mom and I have had some really interesting discussions about religion), but I need to know the person well.
