206 : The awkward gap

First time meeting someone online is always awkward for me.
I never seem to be able to get the conversation rolling no matter what and i always always comes out as me being shallow and unfriendly.

That i am okay with. As i get to know people more i usually redeem myself, earning the title of talkative to most people(time may wary to each individual). But there is one awkward moment that i can never seem to overcome.
I have no idea why but this has been happening to me a lot lately. The moment i met someone online, i would exchange a few words before something would come up, going out for dinner for example, a movie, or grocery shopping, which has all happened before.

Right after I'm back i feel like it would be awkward to continue the conversation. The few words exchanged before hand is insufficient to start a conversation topic, thus killing the chances of a friendship ever sparking.

Its like you are trying to start a fire with spark-rocks, the second you get ember you had to go attend something else and when you get back, the ember has already burned all the dry wood through, leaving you with nothing to burn and no fire!! The horror!

Another awkward moment is when the other party just stops replying.. And you don't know to change the topic or too just let the conversation end..

I shall call it the awkward gap.

AWKWARD TURTLE!~

My favourite hand gesture to use. Especially around my friend's parents or when i am a 3rd party to a couple..  lol..

Do you guys experience the awkward gap like i do?..

Love,
