> I am also someone who enjoys intense and deep conversation and have a very hard time with small talk. I have found this to be a problem since most people enjoy lite subjects and are not interested in deep intense conversation. I am also a person who loves the human race so much that I am not willing to become a hermit because of my problem. I have learnt to adapt and make lite conversation and when the opportunity presents itself for a deep conversation to try to enjoy it but not go overboard.

You sound like the kind of person I strive to be! If I were to meet you in a group I would immediately be drawn to you. Hopefully you wouldn't run away from me! It's funny, but I get so disinterested so quickly when trying to attempt small talk. I know it's essential to good conversation, but it leaves me feeling so empty and drained, and mostly, insufficient. Looking back, though, the times that I am able to keep my chit-chat to small talk, people have always responded better to me. Why do I have that innate urge to go deeper? Why do I feel the need to introduce an intense subject that no one else even wants to talk about or even cares about?
One of my biggest pet peeves is people who pretty much keep the topic of their conversations focused on themselves only or talk about other people. They tend to be the ones who love to ostracize me and make me feel very unwelcome. Yet, everyone else seems to love them.

Thanks for your post and support. I will continue to work at this, and hopefully will have a success story one of these days!
