Other places people dont talk much

I like to chat with strangers a bit when I am out. I'll have a quick conversation with the cashier like today I was telling the gas station lady how I'm excited because I'm gonna go drink whiskey later. Ill just have conversations with everyone about anything.

Lately I've been traveling more and I have always lived in my own small bubble in a southern state and havent seen the world. I have noticed when I go to other states up north or far west people generally look at me like I'm weird when I do this. I can tell with their eyes the way they look at me like they think I'm really odd. Sometimes I get the feeling they are even suspicious of me. Ive even had them get angry at me when I am trying to be polite (told someone Merry Christmas and helped someone move something once in new york) I didnt know that some people in my country were less talkative or maybe I am weird and ppl where I live just put up with me. I honestly dont feel like I come off as that weird though when I talk to people.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

    Honestly here in the Midwest it's hit or miss, most people are fine with this but some will give you the cold shoulder.

    If you think it's bad there, then you've never been to Scandinavia. People here literally NEVER speak to strangers. The concept of small-talk is practically nonexistant, and at bus-stops, you have to keep a distance of atleast 5 feet to other people. The only time people here are remotely social is when they're binge-drinking, because drinking just 2 beer cans is never enough for people here.
