I feel like I'm always interrogating people when I first meet them.

I mean... how do you get to know people? I feel like I have two choices

1) Talk about myself, hope they're interested in what I'm talking about and comment, then repeat.

But then I just feel like a narcissist the whole time "Listen to me ramble about my life"

2) Ask them about themselves and comment on what they say.

Which goes pretty well to me, but sometimes I get the feeling I'm interrogating them
"So where do you work?"
"Department Store. I do this and that"
"Oh that's cool, I couldn't imagine working at the mall. Too busy. Especially on holidays."
"Yup... so... how long have you worked there?"
BLAH BLAH chit chat.

It's like if I'm not asking them questions, then no one is talking. No one will initiate conversation unless I'm asking them s**t I don't really care about, just to get them to talk to me.
