“ Not good with small talk” I don't know what to say, what's appropriate to talk about and how to break the ice. How to engage people and make sure that they are not too bored. I feel like I don't have anything interesting to add to the conversation. I feel as if I am not as intelligent as others. I am unprepared with questions that will get others to talk about themselves.
