I can do just fine with text that is, you know, books and stuff. But when it comes to conversational nuances, I have NO CLUE what I’m doing.
I usually take things the worst way possible. To me they sound threatening/mean/sarcastic or meant to make a stab at a particular thing I do, while in fact it’s just a saying. Or something.
Emotions also never work out for me. Someone says something that is meant to mean something and it flies right over my head. Or someone says something entirely meaningless and I take it to heart. =.=
I’m so helpless
“Luv you”. Via Whatsapp. For the first time.
What. The fuck. Am I supposed to do with that?
What I did in practice, was to send an OMG SOS HELP ME WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN message to my poor, poor guy friend who happened to be online at the time. So to get it he asked for the whole background story. And if you’ve ever read my Tumblr, you KNOW I don’t know how to make stories short. I try. But it doesn’t work.
So I did, and he helped me quick to word a very diplomatic could-be-read-either-way reply. Now I am calm. I’m not. But relative to the massive freak out (because I didn’t know what was meant, nothing else), I am very, very calm.
