Friendly Conversation

I envy the ease with which my daughter makes friends. She strikes up conversation with young and old alike, charming them with her ready smile and warm personality. She is a real social creature- just like her dad. I am the opposite. I get weary simply at the thought of making new friends – the ice breaker conversations, the build up, the testing of the waters. I find it all so draining. And that’s why I sometimes come off as being aloof. I’m not – I am just no good at striking up conversation that’s all. I leave that to my daughter.
