I won’t lie. I’m not the biggest fan of talking on the phone with someone I don’t know well. The only exception is an interviewer for a job because the conversation has a definite purpose before it begins. I have had the most awkward phone conversations in life where I have attempted to help the person who called me to facilitate the dialogue. These attempts usually crash and burn ending in those weird silences as you listen to their breathing noises. I would rather text you or video chat.
