Awkward

I feel tongue tied when I meet people for the first time. There are long stretches of silence, while in my mind I search for a safe topic to discuss. Besides I keep wondering what next to say if the other person doesn’t give a hopeful response.

There are times when you meet certain people, and you are trying to break the ice, and all they do is to leave all the talking to you alone. Those moments are terribly annoying.

My late husband would get upset with me over it. He would say, “You eat my head off with nonstop talking when I’m home”, meaning why can’t I be same way with other people.

He was my husband, and naturally I felt comfortable while talking with him. I didn’t feel awkward.
