Dating a non talker
When someone tells them they talk too much, they get offended, but the behavior doesn't change.
Do you have suggestions for how to handle compulsive talkers so I won't have to listen to the person go on and on? -- OVERLOADED IN WASHINGTON DEAR OVERLOADED: I do have a suggestion. If you can't avoid them, politely excuse yourself as quickly as possible.
The thing is, I have liked him for a long time and they have been broken up for three months now.
I can’t tell you the hours my friends and I have spent reciting, decrypting, bemoaning, and conjuring up an honors thesis on a five-word text message. His responses are never more than three words long. He seems, like, really happy to be texting with you. DEAR ABBY: My best friend and I both had boyfriends around the same time. They started dating, and I started talking to her ex.She got pretty mad at first, and then said if I like him I should date him. -- CONFUSED BEST FRIEND DEAR CONFUSED: Because your friend now says it's all right if you date her ex-boyfriend, what you should do is let him know you're interested.Don’t take it personally; people with commitment issues tend to have a tough time connecting with other aspects of their life, such as friends, family, work and even their living environment.It really isn’t you, it’s them…Which isn’t to say that commitment-phobes don’t deserve some sympathy.
