Anyone else found that they have nothing to talk about with people?

oh yes definitely !

I work on the principle
that everyone gets that sometimes

if I think the person is at all nice
I might say that I'm lost for words
or that I'm feeling a bit shy today
or just that I cant think what to say
with a smile or a laugh

some people will relax
because of this honesty with them
which is also being open about how I'm feeling

with some people I would ask them a question about themselves

I also have difficulty concentrating
which is really embarrassing sometimes

I have the same issue, not much to talk about with people. I don't do a great deal with my life, I don't do hobbies much, don't travel and definitely don't do social media apart from these forums.

I could go on and on about voices but not many people in 'real life' want to hear about my crazy explanation for them so I reserve that for here.

I can chat if the other person is chatty, but if they’re shy like me we end up just sitting and looking at each other. Very embarrassing

If it helps I find what you say both rational and fascinating :)

like NWiddi said
I reserve most of my mental health talk for forums

when Im out chatting to people
I like more pretending to be fine !
chatting about the things they talk about
the weather , the art class we have been on
or sometimes peoples physical ailments

just pretending to be normal !
