Mrs. Bee just posted a question about who is smarter (you or your SO), and she said it was me… what a sweet honey bee.
It got me thinking about other comparisons between couples. One big one is… who is more talkative!
We are both pretty chatty when we are alone, although we both go through phases where one of us talks more than the other. Sometimes I will say to myself, "I am not going to talk much for the next two weeks." I find that when I do that, Mrs. Bee is more likely to say stuff that she normally wouldn’t say because I am jabbering away.
Sometimes Mrs. Bee talks to herself, so it’s hard to tell if she’s talking to me or to herself (or to the cats). Sometimes if she’s chatting to the cats a lot, I will tun her out… and then I will miss her saying something important!
I am not sure who talks more overall. If it’s just us, probably her. In larger groups, it’s probably me!
Who talks more – you or your SO? Is one of you a good listener, and the other one a good talker? Do you talk over each other/take turns talking? Or do you both sit in blissful silence. 🙂

Ahaha, I’m laughing because Mr. Peng asks me all the time if I am talking to him, because I am usually talking to the dog, and I call them (both my husband and my dog) by the same stupid nicknames.
I talk more, unless I’m upset or mad, and then Mr. Peng becomes the talker. You can tell if I’m in a bad mood because Mr. Peng gets much more talkative…. he tries to talk me into a better mood! And of course, it always works because he is so sweet! 🙂

ME!!! Most definitely….’nuff said.

He does, definitely. But, he always wants my input and asks me questions about what I think, etc. I’m more of a quiet, reserved type.

Him, especially if he’s had a beer. He’s a chatty Cathy. I’m usually more quiet (except here).

I definitly talk more than my FH, unless he has had something to drink or if something is REALLY bothering him. Mostly I "think out loud" while he tries to clarify his thoughts before articulating them.

I’m really not much of a talker, so I would probably say that he talks more. But if you asked him, he would probably say I talk more. He also says that I’m good at striking up conversations in social situations with people I don’t know…I’ve never noticed that about myself, probably because in most social situations I can only think about how awkward I feel, lol.

ME!!! LOL we have a family joke that both my father and I were inoculated with a victorla needle , We’re both chatter boxes. I too talk to the dog , but i also talk for inanimate objects , as in the toaster "the toaster isn’t feeling very well today I think it’s tired for all those bagel bites you made yesterday". FH is more the quiet thoughtful type.

Oh, it’s totally me. In school, my teachers always told me that I needed to elaborate when I wrote papers, but no one has ever asked me that while I’m speaking. Mr. D could probably go hours without talking. I could have a conversation with a goldfish.

HIM! by far. I’m usually quiet. We’re both pretty calm at home, although he still talks more. And he definately talks more when we’re out with friends!
P.S. I do think I talk to the dog more than I talk to him though haha! (Okay not really but you know what I mean).

It’s him! He loves to talk about work and politics and music. I can talk a lot when I’m excited, but for the most part- I’m a better listener.

Me, me, me, a thousand times me. I complain all the time that he doesn’t respond to my stories with enough talking.

Definitely me! I can talk to a doorknob!!!! Heee heee!

I think we take turns. He HATES when I talk over him, which is what I grew up with, so that is a challenge. But in public, he talks a little more, I think. Our group of friends is predominantly male, so he and "the guys" will get all excited and go on and on about video games or D&D, and the only other SO and I will sit and have girl talk.
And we both talk to ourselves, but I talk to animals more and definitely do the talking for inanimate objects thing (BunnyBlue, I’m glad I’m not the only one!).

I talk more when we’re alone or around very close family and friends… but he is more interactive and talkative with others when we’re out.
