I had a falling out with a girl who was a friend of mine last year just over simple miscommunication. Sometimes I look at people after I say hello to
them, not expecting them to look back. She was extra perceptive and she saw that I was looking at her. I wasn't looking at her to flirt... or
anything, but sometimes I have a look of concern on my face, as if I have something to say. She thought that because I looked at her in that way
(when I was just thinking, sometimes I gaze at people) that I always have things to say to her, or like whatever), so... we talk every once in a
while. We get along with each other when we're in groups (she's admitted this to a friend of mine who told me about it). We've had our differences.
But, for some strange reason when I started talking to her she always assumed that I always had something to say when I talked to her, when that
clearly isn't true, and sometimes I had things to say because she might have disclosed something earlier, and I wanted to know about what happened.
Sometimes I just want to ask people how they're doing, and, they go on a really long conversation, and, I don't like it when they complain afterwards
that I talk to them too much when they don't know how to stop talking. I know that there were other reasons for our falling-out at the time and we're
going to be talking to each other more and we'll be on friendlier terms next year... but there were a lot of misunderstandings, especially with what
she thought I was doing and what I was doing, and, also there were just some circumstances where I did indeed need to talk about them (I had some
issues with one of her friends for instance), and all of these things in concert led her to have these strange impressions of me.
I don't have this problem with everyone. But don't you just hate being misunderstood? Again, I just want to clarify that I'm not naive or anything
and I know there were other reasons for our falling out... but it just is annoying when someone overlooks your positive traits in your personality
just because you have some negative personality quirks, or, because they might misread you.
