Sometimes I hit on women who don't seem like "my type," just because they are attractive and I wouldn't mind something casual in between finding an actual "soulmate" or whatever.

However, a little bit into talking to these sorts, I inevitably end up getting bored and telling them to have a nice day. It's like there's nothing we can talk about.

"Oh, you're doing this business? What interests you about it?"
"I dunno, it'll get me a job."

"What are your hobbies?"
"I dunno, I like hanging out with friends, I guess."

I usually tend to be into more artsy or sciencey girls with interesting tastes that they show through their presentation and style, but when I talk to typical conventional pretty girls, they seem to have absolutely no passion or interest in anything in life. I don't understand it. Do some people really go through life with no curiosity, no ambitions, other than the quite general goals of being economically secure, watching Netflix, and going to clubs? I don't want to sound like one of those high-schoolers who think they are super enlightened and above all of the mindless "sheeple" or whatever, but with some people, their dullness exceeds even my interest in shagging, and trying to talk to them just isn't even worth it.

Somebody doesn't even have to have the same interests as I do for me to find them interesting. Somebody can be into something I have absolutely no interest in, like business (and be one of those bougie fucks I think is responsible for fucking the world), but if they are actually into it because they have a passion for entrepreneurship and not just because "I dunno, it'll get me some office job," I can actually find myself interested in them. Hell, have something in your life. Take up crocheting or rock collecting.

People are often just difficult to get to know.

Ask me what my hobbies are during an introductory smalltalk session and I'll have very little to offer right off the bat, too.

Netphoria is what I do instead of listening to country (and rap).

DK, you are a fairly introverted guy it seems. Do you usually try to match yourself with other introverts in terms of relationships (not just romantic ones)?

I have a powerful introverted streak and socially I don't do that well with other introverts. I think people reflect the traits they see in others, and it can be really difficult to break down the initial social barrier between two shy individuals. IME, it is sometimes (read: almost always) easier to kick things off with an extroverted person. Some people are incredibly bland (like for instance the kind of people who think liking parks and rec is a central personality trait), but I think most people do have a bit more going on below the surface.
