    Omg I hate the regular conversations

    that go "What are you doing?" "Nothing." "HBY". I just try to avoid all those messages. Is this really what society has come to?

    I Am Officially Done.

    I just can't take it anymore.. I'm sick and tired of hearing a brat whine about being single and how you dont understand why your singled because your a nice guy/gentleman. There IS such a thing as being too nice and doing too much. No girl wants to babied. Or have her butt...

    I'm Sorry

    I hate it when you are listening to someone ramble on about something you really aren't interested in ... can they not see i am not interested in whatever they are saying? i am looking around the room, i am nodding my head in probably all the wrong places and i ''hmm'' and say...

    It happens a lot when someone isn't talking

    about anything that interests me. Either online or in person, most people are just boring. I usually just tell someone i forgot what to say or i don't really know what to say, if i don't know how to respond back to them because they blow at keeping me interested in a...

    Say No More, Please!

    "Say no more, please!"... That's what I keep on telling to myself when I happened to be with an ego-centric person... So annoying to be with a person who loves to talk much about himself/herself... He/She don't even give me a chance to talk or respond to whatever he or she's...

    Boredom

    I have a friend who likes to talk about herself. (blah, blah, blah, blah, etc.) I find myself staring into space, working my mind to something else. And there, I'm nodding my head in her babble, saying : "oh's", 'really?', 'yeah', 'hmmm'. In time she notices it. And there, I look...

    Hope this doesn't sound rude.

    . But if you're gonna message me.. At least make it something to grab my attention and not the same old "hi" or "how are you" or "hey how are you doing?" .. I get messages every day.. All these conversations are the same! Say something different ... Say something intriguing that...

    The Bear

    Like a bear Out into the air I stare. A conversation should Say everything it would, To any hearer that could. Boredom settles in, Playing on the mind worse than gin, A grimace never a grin! Talk of things interesting, Talk never depressing, Speak kindly and stressing.

    Not to be mean or rude,

    but if someone is boring, I just ignore them, that's if it's in text or messages. On the phone, I simply tell them I have to go and the same in person. I can't stand boring people or conversations.

    Outer Space.

    If someone is talking to me, or if I am in class and my teacher is doing a boring lecture, I will often daydream, or space out. Especially if the conversation just makes no sense, my eyes will wander off elsewhere.
