It’s simply a natural human thing to feel a little afraid about talking to someone new, at least once or twice.
What’s not really natural is for that to happen every single time.
That “awkward silence” fear can actually induce people to no really treat others. They tend to close themselves up and won’t let communication have its way.

It’s a fact that everybody has different styles when it comes to talking to people. It’s totally fine.
