Small Talk

I’m interested in what goes on inside a person. When talking to someone, my intuition automatically searches, reaching and reading past the outer person. If the person insists on staying in small talk mode, my attention can lose focus. I feel bad about that because  I care about people deeply.

  1. Wow, I’m so glad you said this because I’m guilty of doing it even with my boyfriend! As bad as it may sound, I quickly get distracted if we aren’t talking about something meaningful. I thrive on intellectual and meaningful conversation, and anything other than that can quickly bore me. I hate to admit it, but it’s true :/

    • I understand. The important thing is that you CAN have meaningful and in-depth conversations with your boyfriend, that you CAN connect on a deeper level. It doesn’t have to be all the time. Thanks for your comment. 🙂 Hope you are well.

  2. I can relate to this so much, esp at work where people talk non-stop. It’s embarrassing when I later have totally forgotten (or never paid attention to in the first place) what they told me.

  3. The sad thing is they think you’re ignoring them when you don’t talk back interacting in the small talk, when the truth is you’re thinking deeper about their situation than they ever asked you to, just by nature.
