I usually talk about my interests and ask about theirs, as well as my experience at the place we met. For example, if we met at a university I talk about the courses I took when I was a student there.
When I meet people for the first time, I usually explain myself and share my personal behavior. I always want to learn to new friend's personality

What I talk about when I meet people for the first time is my son. He is five years old and very, very, very cute. We play various games; ball games, battle games with swords and shields, and board games in my free time. For example, building an RC car named "mini-yonku" in Japanese was fun yesterday.
If I am meeting someone, Generally, I introduce myself to he/she who talking to me. After that we ask to each other "what do you do? or "are you student". Then, "Are you single or married" is come as a classical question in Turkey :)
If you are a single this situation is bother for the people who your met. I guess this reaction is not only relate my country but also its relate Mediterranian Culture.
