What I do is that I like to joke around and ask questions. Like I compliant strangers about their clothes, etc. Which in return starts a more positive conversation that most people respect.

If you have a wild-growing neck beard like me, you can just forget it! Nobody will want to talk to you


So, step 1) shave the neck beard.

Otherwise, I usually try to make jokes on the situation at hand--like if you're waiting in line with someone. I like to make humorous observations. (In truth, I have found that a lot of people don't respond to it. However, when I do meet the person who responds to my sense of humor, it'll be awesome
)

fart loudly and say I think someone rang your door bell.

I think like the one fellow said; I don't like small talk that usually I know it won't amount to anything anyway. Or at least I guess I tend to think it won't. I shouldn't do that but I do. I suppose I shouldn't do that but rather just look at any short dialog might reveal some meaning to me. Like maybe it's just small talk but they recommend a resturant or show near by, or maybe I have an opportunity to tell them about something interesting; even if I don't make friends with them.

I cant say as I am one to be shy, hard to be a bar owner if I was, but one thing I have found to be a good ice breaker silly as it sounds is to ask if they've ever seen a ufo or a ghost. You'd be amazed at some of the answers you get. If they say no to both ask if they believe in either. Sometimes the weird topics seem to go a little further
