Anne was a bit coy at the beginning but after a while and a few glasses of wine you could not make her stop talking, actually it was a real pleasure to speak to as her interest and hobbits were very similar to mine, being difficult to run out of conversation. She was not a very tall person, with a long, brown hair and very sleek skin.
What is another way of saying she loosened up and became talkative? What is another way of saying that you discovered that you have similar interests and hobbies? Is there a better way of saying that she is not very tall?
