I’ve always been able to handle conversations with strangers. I never really practiced it by regularly striking up conversations with people. It usually happened arbitrarily. But every time i never felt like the conversation was strained, it always felt natural. I remember the day i met one of my closest friends throughout college. We were both freshmen at the time, right after a glow party they threw for us during orientation week. I saw her and her friends sitting by the benches on my way back to my dorm. I walked up to them and striked up conversation about the party we came from. We all stayed up until 4 am laughing and playing games. Since then I’ve been pretty good friends with her. We see each other every day, go to the same class, and hang out pretty much every week. It goes to show you how a conversation with a stranger could turn into a friendship that lasts years.
