    This thread is going nowhere fast.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    You're right. We should do some roleplay or some crap. One of you N's whining about not being able to have a convo with S's, post your conversation starter and I'll respond, and let's see if we can have a conversation.

    Also, please start it off with the cadence of a nursery rhyme so it'll be easier to figure out.

    Thanks!

    Jeffster, if you think about it, If God is dead, then there exists no reason for us to act in a civil manner when we can get away with it.

    What do you think... I am just role playing.

    But you know what's interesting? People always use religion as being a go-to "deep and philosophical" topic. It's like impossible to find something abstract in talking about the weather.

    It has occurred to me that they often state facts but don't really wonder much about why things are the way the are.
    Huge generalization or it's just specific to your friends. I think I'm done with this thread because it's really based on egotistical assumptions ---again.

    What on earth makes the winds shift the way they do? It is just amazing, we know that clouds shading an area can cause the air to cool down and an unshaded area may be heated causing a local pressure system to develop, but what on earth started all these shifts in the winds?

    Well by nature, a deep and philosophical topic is usually a discussion of an untangible or abstract thing, Religion fits this criteria. On the contrary, You can find many stimulating discussions about the wheather, they don't have to be philosophical, they can be scientific and still intuitive.
