I sometimes like to start a conversation with someone, just to be friendly. But the conversations usually end up being brief and rather dull, and I have no idea how to keep the relationship going and turn it into a friendship. Then I feel awkward about talking to that person, and may avoid doing so so I don't appear clingy. I can't tell what is the right amount to talk to someone, and how much is too much.

That's ironic, considering your signature statement ...

I know! And I know I'm not a boring person, but it's hard for me to seem interesting in a conversation with someone else. It's also hard for me to bring out the interestingness in someone else in a conversation, given as I don't want to ask them really personal questions when I've just met them. That's why the conversations are sometimes kind of dull.
