When you really want someone to shut up but have to be polite
There are some people who really like to talk.
And I mean REALLY talk. Some do it because they are nervous, and others are just plain talkers.
I run into a few of these people about once a day. They tell you about their day, and about their life.. then make a comment about how they’re taking up your time, they apologize, and then keep talking.
For women in the dating world:
Imagine yourself sitting at a bar, with a couple of your girlfriends.. trying to act all cool. Suddenly someone takes the bait and he begins to approach you. Uh oh. Here he comes.
“Hello, I’m Jeff.”
“Melissa. Nice to meet you.”
“How is your evening going?”
“It’s going well, thank you.”
“Same for me, a couple of my friends had a blah blah blah…” and he goes on and on about people you don’t know doing things you don’t care about.
So he keeps talking and talking and you just sit there, smiling, looking away every once in a while hoping that he gets the message –but no luck. What do you do? Pretend to get a phone call? Say you need to go to the restroom? …yawn?
For men in the dating world:
Well, let us be honest here.. you probably think the date is going well if she keeps talking.
I don’t know. Sometimes I just wish I could leave the person talking by themselves. How many times have you been on a phone call and literally put the phone down, go pee or make yourself a sandwich, and then pick up the phone again only to discover that the person still hasn’t stopped talking?
How do you let them know?
