Well thanks for the responses, I do appreciate it. They seem to confirm many of the conclusions I myself have come to. Mainly the fact that my posts are just too intellectual in quality. That was somewhat the point I was trying to make in my OP, but I was unable to fully articulate it(or in that way).
Well what else can I say? I'm very much interested in more intellectual in-depth topics. Of course, there are few avenues for me to discuss such things. So I guess that explain why I probably put more effort in my debates than others.
I seem to have an opposite view of Jennifer's: I can engage in small talk anytime really(and often do), but it's not everyday you can engage in more in-depth discussions about [insert random philosophical topic]. That's actually my form of fun and relaxation from the hassle of everyday life. To put it another way, it's a break from the endless trivalities I face with elsewhere.
So that's part of the reason why I tend to stay away from the more trival topics. Not only that, I literally do struggle with what to say in such discussions to begin with. I really don't know what to say.
And whenever I do say something, it tends to fall flat on other people. This is especially true when I try to engage in humour. Trust me, I'm not humourless by any means; and I guess many don't notice that my posts are often filled with sarcasm.
I guess here's one example, where I ask Samuel De Mazarin what he's been drinking, and when he answered Bailey's, to which I replied: "I just knew it had to be something Irish."
Then here I joke about all the Elvis avatars on the forum:
Then again, addressing Samuel, I engage in more of what I consider my kind of humour:
So I do engage in humour here, but I guess it's lost on most people. So even when I try to be more trival and humour in nature, I still fall short. People can't tell when Im being serious or being trival, which adds to the frustration on my part.
Although this often seems to apply to out in the open discussions. In more one-on-one discussions I tend to be more geniunely "lively" and less serious in nature. Im hard on the outside, but soft on the inside.
I'm sorry but talking about more personal issues out in the open is very uncomfortable for me. Heck creating this thread and even typing this post is nerve wracking. So Im not intentionally hiding myself, but I literally become tongue-tied when I try talk about myself out in the open.
That's really all I can say for now. Again, thanks for the responses.
