In Conversation Monday, 21 July 2008

Do you sometimes know how a conversation will end with a new acquaintance before you are even mid way through it? I recently got to know a goodlooking new colleague¬†who speaks with an accent having been brought up in Australia. I thought I detected a slight gay vibe but I couldn’t be sure. However, I’m quite certain now after he sort of become disinterested in conversation after he found out I was with someone. Girls on the other hand tend to be more discreet based on my conversations with them. Well, it’s either that or they were never really interested to begin with! Such experiences now provide me with early indications of how a conversation will go with a new acquaintance. I was recently contacted by a reader of my blog. It started off nice enough until I was asked if I was seeing anyone. I wondered if I should tell him but figured it’ll be rude not to reply. So I did and I haven’t heard back from him. I guess amidst our modern and often busy life, most people will not want to invest time and energy in continuing a futile pursuit, which in my case, a conversation!
