I Run Into This A Loooot.Mostly on dates. I don't know what it is but the more someone talks the less I feel I even have to add to the conversation. If I can even get a word in edgewise, that is. Then of course I do get a chance to say something, and the only response is a "yeah.... well blka;jlkbajlkjaj blah blah blah" So I'm left on the other side of the table, or the other side of the phone if I'm lucky, tearing up a napkin/ rolling my eyes and taking the phone off my ear to give it a break.
Also, I don't know if it's my hearing but all their words start to mush together and I can't even follow what they're prattling on about. Why am I even here? Why are you talking to me? Am I just an arbitrarily chosen ear for you to shout into?
I just want to find someone nice who knows how to have an actual conversation.
