An inquiring mind wants to know...

Still a newbie here and feeling my way around. I think part of what appealed to me with this site was the potential for more meaningful discussion than what can be found on other social media sites; and, while I'm certainly discovering it here, it can be rather hit or miss without knowing where to look. Hoping you can point the girl who is pathetic at small talk but somewhat proficient at deeper conversation in the direction of the groups that will feed the beast the most.

I would look for people, not groups. I can make some suggestions.

It would help if you could be a bit more specific on what you are looking for.

I don't think I'm looking for anything specifically. My interests are broad and I appreciate others perspectives. Conscientious conversation would be as specific as I can get.

I would be no help as I charge into any conversation to see what happens. If I might suggest,don't stress over your perceived lack o ability in small talk,and be open to the experience.

Depends on what your interests are...

Legit point. My interests are many, though science, people and life would be the big umbrellas.

@Amzungu2 I believe there are groups to cover the interests you mentioned.

Let me know when you find it— rarer and rarer these days, it seems.

You can start your own groups to have the kind if discussion you feel comfortable with.

I'm not at all uncomfortable. I simply thought others might have valuable suggestions.

You can also look at people's profiles & see if someone who appeals to you wants to talk in Messenger. The profiles aren't just for dating. For me, just talking with one person at a time, in private, is easier & more natural.

Great suggestion, thank you. You just may be on to something here. 😉

The others are right. Look around, look for what specifically intrigues you. I too prefer deeper conversations, thus I empathize.

I would start with your interests and go from there. If you don't find a group to your liking can make your own when you get to a high enough level.

Just nose around, like the rest of us. Sometime you hit pay dirt other times not. Half the fun is just looking around.

I cannot argue with that.
