However, I also find that guys who have nothing to say are less interesting, and guys who don't assert themselves in a conversation come off as timid...
I don`t know about that. One of the most annoying things I find about some men is their tendency to try and think on your behalf. It`s by no means all, or even the majority, of them. But I`ve noticed that even some otherwise nice, `normal` guys can have an unattractive tendency to try and dominate in conversations with attractive women that they`re either party to or merely witnessing. It`s always a major turn-off for me when they interrupt just to force their opinion on a conversation. The more intelligent/experienced guys, who`re typically older, know that asking a woman for *her* opinion is far more flattering and appealing to her than merely talking at people and stating their (often uninformed) opinion.

I'm probably around the 2,000 work mark too as my job actually requires me to not speak a lot of the time. (Educational Sign Language Interpreter) I should conduct this counting experiment on myself.

I'm usually the one interrupting people all the time because nobody ever goes out of their way to let me talk otherwise. I usually feel like people just don`t want to talk to me because they never let me talk. As a result people tell me they see me as a very quiet person. Sometimes somebody finally decides I`m worth giving a chance and then they`re like "wow and here I thought you were shy, suddenly you have a lot to say!"
