Personally, I've found the human need to always have conversations going to be a very bizarre and incomprehensible thing. Small talk is hollow nothingness for the most part anyway. That's why I like Rin's festival scene the best.
Thats about the same way i see it, still, we never met, we're just writing, so just doing nothing, well, stays nothing.
If you're on a date with someone and the conversation dies out, i think that is pretty awkward as well... but if you're just hanging out with someone, leaving the word "date" aside, silence can be good aswell..
I just got reminded of another issue i have.. messages that consist of "ah ok
" and not more as a response to a response.... it's just, i always think "damn gurl, wth is that supposed to tell me?" and the next question is: Do i just, like, go on asking stuff? Do i wait if there maybe comes more? is there anything else i can do?
It sucks having to deal with this over and over again, it went on like this for 3 years now [ever since i was on my very first date ever] and it doesn't get better. At some point i just don't know what is expected of me now or what my "tasks" are when dating. Some people already told me "uh, well at some point you're going to figure it out by yourself" but i most certainly know that this is not the case..
