Lol.. We’re opposite actually. My job leaves me mentally and emotionally drained by the end of the day, and when I get home I just want to decompress. But my SO likes to talk. About everything.

He. Doesnt. Shut. Up.

@BrandNewBride:  Ha! I used to work with plants and i felt the same way! 

I talk way more than FH. He’s the strong, silent typeWink and i chatter away all the time. He doesn’t seem to mind me talking a lot though.

With us it has nothing to do with our jobs and how drained we are…I just like talking and DH doesn’t. lol. He says that I talk enough for the both of us. Sometimes it does bother me and I tell him to needs to make more of an effort, but usually I don’t really care as long as he is actually actively listening to me.

I’m pretty shy, so I do very little talking at work. I’m learning how to be more outgoing. DH on the other hand wants to converse for a living. He can talk endlessly. In our relationship though, talking is pretty equal.

I talk more about random stuff. he likes to talk about one serious topic nonstop, in-depth. but usually I get to talk more since serious stuff happens less! and as I chatter away he’s always listening, though sometimes he’ll stop me and mention how I’m like a little bird hahaha. and he loves it, apparently it’s soothing. lol…

Mr. LK rants… a lot. I’ve mastered “yes, dear” , “I see”, “that must be frustrating”, “I can see why you are upset”, etc. Basically, between Mr. LK and teen LK, I can’t get a word in edgewise. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love my guys. <3

FH works with the public and has to talk to a lot of people, but surprisingly when he comes home he’s the one that wants to talk the most. I’ve always been a more quiet and reserved person, so sometimes I have to tell him “Honey, I love you, but I really need to study/go to sleep. We can talk more tomorrow.” 

We don’t get to spend much time together during the day and he gets home late, so I feel bad and try to indulge him in conversation when he gets home.

I wish.  I often ask him if his mouth hurts or if he’s tired of talking.  He’ll ask me a question and then start talking again before I can even finish answering.  He can also change topics in rapid fire succession.  It’s both somewhat amazing and irritating as hell.

I actually talk, ALL OF THE TIME…and for the most part, it’s a rather amusing stream of consciousness that makes whoever is within ear shot, laugh…HARD, because I feel that 99% of the time, I am the only person paying attention.

Mr. 99 is the strong silent type, which I’ve never minded, since his eyes tell me everything I need to know…he USED to make fun of how noisy I was, his ears bleeding from all the talking and that kind of thing.

Until this summer when I was in Arizona with my mother at the Mayo Clinic for about 8 weeks….he said the silence in the house was defening, and he would play home movies of me dorking around the house just to hear my voice and my endless prattlling, we’d schedule dates to watch a tv show or movie together on the phone, just so he could hear me crack jokes about it…after I got home, if I am to quiet…he notices and starts asking me questions until we land on a subject I can harp on…

funny how people NEVER know how much they love something, until it disappears for a while.

I work with fungi alone all day long. I’m lucky if I talk to my boss for more than 3 minutes a day. How little talking I do is starting to adversely affect my VCD. FI on the other hand works retail and talks to people all day long. When he gets home I’m so tired of being alone and want some interaction while he is sick of people and wants to decompress. We’re working on balancing it out.

@Brielle:  Ahhh…. I think our boys are opposites. While DS doesn’t mind talking to kids his own age, he tends to prefer the company of adults. It’s partially an only child thing, partially because I treated him like a mini-adult from day 1, partially because he has ADHD, and partially because he is brilliant (like, he qualifies for MENSA, brilliant). He needs constant stimulation. Honestly, it is exhausting. There are moments when I just have to tell him that I need a brain break, and we can talk again in 15 minutes. It’s wonderful to hear him opine on so many subjects and learn his view of the world, but sometimes I just want quiet. lol Fortunately Mr. LK has that same insatiable quest for knowledge and insight, so he can takeover when I am getting burned out. It’s almost comical to listen to the two of them talk history, politics, science, ethics, religion, video games, pop culture, and whatever else comes to mind. I just sit there and wonder if other families have such varied conversations around the dinner table, or maybe we are just weird (in a good way).
