- Diaper Lover
I've tried, but largely been ignored. I'm disabled, and some folks just would rather not have much to do with us, conversationwise. Too bad. I have as much to offer. If someone approaches me first (noncreepy, if possible), and a convo starts, then you bet I'll ask about their shirt, or whatever else. I find people interesting, assholes or not.Would you strike a conversation with a stranger if there was an blatant shared interest between you say a band t-shirt, browsing the same games, music genre aisle etc... or do you prefer to say nothing and go about your merry unsociable way?
Normally I wouldn't, I have friends who jump on any occasion to chat with somebody, the greater of the time it just comes across as awkward and embarrassing so I tend to avoid it unless someone approaches me first or looks confident enough to cope with small talk.
I'm trying to improve, afterall you never know when you've involuntarily missed an awesome person that you could have known if you said 'hi...'
