so we talk about our job (a very everyday matter). our boyfriend (even trivial things about him- as long as the listeners are already filled in on the history). our ex-boyfriend (maybe in the lack of a current boyfriend, might prove useful). our family (perfect. family is family. not much history is required but it is indeed, a little boring). sales. winter coats. calories.
we don't like to start from the very beginning. that's exhausting. we want our listeners to be anywere from the middle to the open end of our history.
at least this much i can say for myself.
