Like during silences, I'm ALWAYS the one to ask a new question. And I've noticed this in a lot of situations with different friends. Should I not be trying to fill silence... ? Why do people like to sit together (i. e in a car or even over dinner) and be okay with silence? Someone please explain to me :P
Why am I always the one asking questions to keep a conversation going when it dies?

"Only talk when it improves the silence." proverb. Some conversations are fascinating and revealing. Other times it is just nice to look at the other person. perhaps the guy is enchanted with your beauty and charm and is at a loss for words?1
well the person you're with either doesn't mind the silence or they're nervous as shit and can't think. I enjoy silence during music.1
I can't get used to people who are so uncomfortable with silence. Some people just make me feel like we have to be talking 100% of the time if it's just us two. And I think I do most of the questions and I ask shitty questions.0
The first thing that comes to mind is you ask really bad questions and don't know how to capitalize on another person's interests very well. You probably try to compound but that doesn't produce a conversation so much as it does an interview and from there they just let you interview them.0
