Well, not that anyone cares, but just so people don’t look at this and wonder where the hell I got the name for this blog.
People tell me I am a great listener and that I give good advice. Most of the time the people who end up asking for advice are friends of mine. Guess what the advice is about at least 60% of the time: relationships. Now, I don’t mind talking to people about their marital status or their problems and issues. Actually, it gives me joy to know that someone decided to let me in on their life and are actually willing to talk to me, because that lets me know that I’m trying to be a friend to these people. But look at who you’re asking. You’re asking someone who hasn’t ever been in a super serious relationship about your super serious relationship. Ironic? Maybe. But I look at it as though I’m a third party looking in on the situation. And trust me, I’m blunt (sometimes too blunt with what I say — something I should probably work on). But nevertheless, I’m still there when people need to vent about something, always willing to give an ear to what they have to say.
Sometimes I get people who aren’t really my friend, more of an acquaintance, to open up and give me a glimpse into their lives. I love getting to know new people, it’s exciting and fun for me. But when you’re instantly talking about your relationship with your significant other, opening up to me and telling me what they had for breakfast, yeah, I don’t really give a shit. Then, what really bugs me, is whenever I meet that person again all they want to talk about is their latest endeavor with their hubby or woman; again, something I could care less about half the time.
I say half the time because as I have said in my previous blog about drama, I do love it and am open to admitting I love listening to other people’s drama. So sometimes hearing about their insignificant fights over who drank the last bit of milk from the carton, and then understanding where they stand now, it tends to make me listen a little more than how lovey dovey their relationship is growing to be. Obviously, it’s not that hard to talk about someone else other than them, right? It can’t be. I don’t have a significant other that I constantly throw down your throat twenty-four seven, now do I? I mean, even talking a little bit about yourself is okay now and again. It’s just annoying always having to listen in on how you have grown so fond of their back hair. If you guys have a fight, please, by all means, stop by, say hello, and give me a hug because you can tell me all you want about your drama filled life. It is almost a getaway of sorts for mine. It’s quite uplifting.
Now, I may sound like a jerk, but honestly, who wants to listen to everyone else talk about their love life. It’s not interesting unless there’s drama!
Along with randomly talking to people about their love life, I’ve also had full conversations about other things not even close to love related. Work, school, family life, etc. These things also interest me because at least it’s more based around you and your family, not some hoe you picked up and are only using until you find the next best thing, or some guy you’ve totally fallen in love with after two days of knowing. Now do you all see why it can become tiresome? It’s really just a matter of opinion.
So, just to clarify, the reason my blog is named as such is because I have had people confess things to me for my honest opinions and advice giving. I’m told I’m good at it. The invitation is always open for an honest third party advice giving! Just let me know and we can chat too!
