    I'm not.


    Should I write more?


    My wife often points this out. There will be a silence and she'll challenge me to start a conversation. I often can't.

    I feel like my brain is wired against too much chatting. Is that possible?

    I don't think this is entirely a male/female thing. There is a range and I'm on the quiet end.

    I'm a semi hermit and sometimes go for weeks without speaking enough words to form a single sentence!

    I'm only a chatterbox when I'm on here.

    Looking back this sounds like we're a bickering couple. We actually get along well. Yesterday, for example, before my daughter came home I put this on and we pretended that everything was normal. "That? Drone music is so cool. Are kids into it, too? Tony Conrad was nearly in the Velvet Underground."

    I've got a split personality when it comes to talking:

    I'm a bandleader and frontman/singer (which really can mean solo/duo/band) so depending on room or crowd I may gab, BS a bit with folks, but sometimes it's just ' plow thru the music, I don't know if they like me! ( us)"

    OTOH- I am not much of a drinker, don't go to bars or parties, shy, UNLESS I'm playing music

    I'm also an Uber driver, and I can chat and BS like crazy if someone wants to do that. If someone is quiet, I'm polite and shut up. I follow lead of riders.

    - At home ( married 39 years) I'm pretty quiet with my wife anymore- I talk much more to strangers- such is life!

    Probably too much
    Probably too much where my wife points it out too. If I talk to a fault she's silent to a fault.
