I just noticed there are two very similar questions recently asked. Both ask about how to engage in conversation when the OP is awkward or feels they don't have anything to converse about:
How to talk to people at a singles mixer when you are an introvert? has gotten 3 close votes.
How can a poor and socially handicapped person socialize with wealthy people? hasn't gotten any close votes.
I still tend to be baffled by what gets closed vs left open. Any info on why one is getting closed and other isn't? I'd particularly like to hear from people who saw both and voted to close one of them.
