    This is a big problem I have. Unless the other person/people are the talkative type then conversation dies out very quickly. I think for me it is a combination of Autism and anxiety. I am shockingly bad at "small talk" - I just find it pointless a lot of the time!

    I have started to say I have NPC energy. Most of the time I don't engage people unless they initiate first. I am really super bad at coming up with things to talk about and to say (this could be from autism, anxiety, or trauma). I can be talkative under the right circumstances tho.

      literally same - i also talk to people if they approach me first but i still don’t know what to talk about - i also have been thinking i might have autism and not adhd and i was misdiagnosed but idk what to do

    I've always thought it was caused by anxiety, though who knows but, the same thing happens to me. It's like my brain goes blank or my thoughts freeze and I can't come up with even the tiniest thing to talk about!

    Yesss like I can be so dry sometimes if the other person isn't putting in the same or more effort. Like I don't know how to spice it up.

    Yup. I guess not everyone is alike. And it takes both parties to continue and find something they relate to

    Same here. I just don't know how to communicate with others and it makes me feel alienated
