I'm mostly talking about the girlfriend/boyfriend, wife/husband, gay partner, etc...the lovey dovey part of our lives. How's that workin' for all of you? It's not very much fun when we know what the outcome of a relationship is going to be before it had a chance to start. Oh, the many things I can go into on this one.
I suspect we hit pay dirt when we find a nice together person for a significant other that we can somewhat share this with, but, honestly, they often seem to figure it out. Knowing what another person is up to, knowing when they are liars, knowing when they are not telling the truth (guilty), etc..etc...
Anyone ever freak another out with this? Maybe not even intending to? Guess we may be labeled a "know it all", perhaps.
For the first time in my life, I am with someone who suspects somethings going on with me. Well, he seems to have caught on early in the game...sadly, I had to show off my talent a little as part of my mating ritual, but it worked and he was worth it. It was also for all the right reason and in all the right ways, if you can believe that one or not. I have a saying that goes like this, and when I've used it, it's been in a cutesie low key somewhat joking way, but m nevertheless, it goes a little sumthin' like this, "I only use my magical powers for good"
...anyway, he doesn't think I'm a freak and he's cool with it. I have suspected it's because he's a genuinely decent human being, for the most part...furthermore, I suspect he's like me only he may not be aware of a lot...he just knows it as being it is what it is.....Regardless, I'm digging a relationship with a very cool guy, and I'm due. Plus, I've never been a dating machine in spite of having the offers. I'm not anti social, just comfortable keeping more to myself but perfectly fine in groups or socializing. Heck, I'm a wonderful host for a great cocktail party. On the other hand, solitude is beautiful to me, also. While I still do hold back and pretend I'm totally normal, most times, too many things have happened to where he knows I'm gifted. He just doesn't realize the extent. I smile and tell him lovingly that I just make a lot of lucky guesses.
My fave (said sarcastically) is in the past, someone we are seeing, when we know exactly what the deal is, we ask about it, they lie, we know it, but figure why bother going any further. That person is a certified loser, and I've lost respect for that person by that time, anyway.
Anyone ever see the ending before it gets going, or see the ending and think, "Awe, man, what a bummer."...in time I have not even wanted to bother being part of the dating game. I figured, why bother.
I'm keeping these matters extremely simple, without going into great detail on how this "gift" effects our social lives. I'm sure some of you have a pretty good idea of that, as well. Some of us find a keeper, and that's good. Some of us keep looking. Some of us give up until we feel we are ready to try again. We have an inside track on things, however. Sometimes we like it, sometimes it stinks. Oh, well.
Feel free to share any thoughts. Maybe some can find comfort in it or get something off of their chest. Who knows. It's a goofy thing but we deal with it all the time.
