    Yeah, you're right, there should be some replacement. I can almost imagine the scene. He's completely wrapped up in himself and doesn't let you in. If I'm right, he has bigger issues if I'm wrong - have you spoken to him about? You'll have to spell it out.

    Or just grab him and sqeeeze him and loooooove him.

    We know there is such a thing as under-communicating but does anyone think there is such a thing as over-communicating?

    To a specific audience, yes. It really depends on the individuals concerned, and it is impossible to generalise. One man's golden silence, is another man's awkward pause.

    Communication isn't just verbal.

    When I'm in a situation or conversation where I can tell that others expect me to be talkative, I do it, but mostly just to accommodate them. It literally takes too much energy out of me; when I'm done I give a huge sigh and lie down for a minute, and am generally a little annoyed.

    Can you offer any feedback on this?
    Just sounds like he's shy and nervous. Can't think of what to do to get things going, but I can tell what not to do, if you're really stumped. The situation doesn't really sound bad, though...

    Very true.

    Oh, and when I grunt, it's not usually mild.

    Definitely grunting, especially after getting up in the mornings. After "waking up," full sentences are used.

    I do this on the phone and with small talk with strangers I think to be too peering, nosy, into my rigidness which is sometimes there for a reason and their wayward nosiness not! (People you meet at parties and hound you the one time you'll ever see them in your life anyone?)
