Communication

I'm really lame at starting conversations over AIM, especially with people I don't really know.

It's not that I don't want to talk- I do- but I'm lame at opening conversations.

And I don't know when it's okay to bother somebody for no reason at all. I'm really a rather interesting person to talk to, but I don't open conversations enough.

Darn it, how do I know who I can bother out of the blue for no apparent reason?
