Yes! Conversation is so not a strong point with me. I am queen of letting people talk and adding in yeah's or the ever popular smile and nod.

Wow! I'm not alone! I'm so awkward in social situations. Everyone talks exclusively about school activities and I don't participate in any. I'm very quiet because I don't have anything to contribute to the conversation. I can talk, I will talk, I just don't to have anything to say! 

Also, I don't know what to say. So, yeah, that's a contributing factor!

Racheljoy and Jessica, i'm really glad that someone else feels that way too! I'm really different in person than I am when I write because when I write, I have more time to think about what I wanna say. :D

Why thank you :D I even get nervous around my best friend sometimes because I don't want to sound stupid.

I'm not really sure how to describe it. I feel like I hide myself sometimes. When I'm around most people (strangers at least), I can't speak. I get tongue-tied. And my brain ends up rambling so instead I just observe and listen to everyone from the sidelines.

But when I'm writing I sound completely different. More confident. Words flow easier from pen to paper or type to computer for me. But socializing is awkward because I just can't think of topics on the spot or say what I want to say without tripping on my tongue. So I just stay ... quiet.

I really wish I could speak more openly in public. But its rather difficult breaking out of habits.

Online, I'm super outgoing, but irl I'm pretty much invisible lol

I'm not really a 'people person'.
