There's a girl at my gym that comes at about the same time as me and everyone seems to know her. I admire and envy the little community of friends she has built around her daily gym routine. On the other hand a lot of the small talk she has seems banal to me.
I think the lesson here for me is that not every convo is for learning or novelty. Sometimes its just about slowly building connections and relationships, laying another social brick. Especially with new relationships, often the convo will be simple.
@zacharius Agree 100%. If I had to have an intelligent conversation every-time I talked to someone, I would probably have a lot fewer friends lol
