I recently consider it my favorite hobby. I really enjoy talking to someone I don’t know and listen to their story. But this pandemic made it really hard to meet people. And living in Germany makes it worse. Conversations here have to be for a reason. People give you this weird look if you talk to them just trying to get to know them.
Where I am coming from this totally the opposite. I can talk to almost anyone. Same when I visited the US, and the UK.
The internet makes it a lot easier. I get to talk to a lot of people that I don’t know. But I truly miss the face to face part.
