    (When I read about communication being the be-all and end-all of a relashionship I shudder, and wonder how the heck I'm gonna make it with someone!)

    That's how my grand dad communicates. He's about 90, btw.

    The idea of a world without verbal communication does not exist in my head.

    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.

    I'll respond politely, but that's about it. When someone asks how I'm doing, I'll answer. I'll say, "I'm fine" or "okay" or something like that. And that's it. I understand it's the overture to starting a conversation, but I don't recriprocate unless I actually care how a person is.

    most of the time, it's yes, no, no thank you, and have a good day.

    The weird thing is I expect the same when I initiate a conversation. If I ask about a what someone is doing, I really don't need a fifteen minute precursor about why their doing it before they answer my question.

    The people I value are the ones whose conversations generally are limited to yes, no, no thank you, and have a good day.

    Bella, I saw the title of this thread, and thought this was going to be your blog. I still think it'd make a great blog title.

    I have been thinking hard and long about blogging but will feel like a pretentious dodo if I start one.

    Moved from SJ Guardhorse, since it has to do with all introverts, I'd suspect.
