    Do you enjoy talking to people who randomly come up to you to start a conversation?

    We all like dialogue but I wonder if people only pretend to enjoy random conversation. Do you appreciate the presence of any one? or does it have to be the presence of the people you have come to respect and love over time?

    A good question.
    Always more comfortable with those I know and am happy to see.
    New faces can be a nerve wracking experience as you never know what you're going to get.
      Still, if you don't go forward you don't find out.

    I'm actually "guilty" of randomly approaching someone and starting a conversation, I actually never meet a stranger, so yes I really do enjoy it.

    I don't mind. I'm sometimes a random conversationalist at times. If something weird is happening in line I'll be the first person to ask the person next to me "What's going on?"

    However, in my travels there are states that I'd rather people not talk to me too much. So, I guess it depends on the context.

    My experience has been a mixed one but i dont discourage or encourage it.Random conversations are sometimes very interesting and leads to great friendships.  It depends on the person one is speaking to. If,however, the person is a bore,its diffiicult to continue the conversation further and rude to stop it abruptly.The best way,then,is to keep quiet,hoping that the other person would take the clue and leave!

    I would much rather prefer somone come up to me and start a random conversation. It takes me out of the hot seat. I am typically shy so I would rather not have to be the person to start a conversation.

    Besides, while I enjoy the people who I have come to love and respect over time, it is nice to meet new people as well. Who knows, that stranger that said something random might end up being your new best friend!

    Well, i am not a socialist so i wont say much on this, but sometimes it is good if someone walks up to me and starts a random conversation, i would welcome it there is always something to learn from every conversation.

    i love talking to random strangers. i'm an information junkie and what people have to say or the way they think is intriguing.

    I love it, on of my favorite jobs was being a shuttle driver, picking folks up from the airport and or train/bus stations and bringing them to the hotel I was working for.  I really do miss that part of that job.
