  • I feel so much better reading some of these responses. I drive my boyfriend insane b/c I don't talk a lot. And getting me to talk about my feelings or problems (beyond an "I love you" or "this happened today") is like pulling teeth. lol Now I don't feel so bad. But, I am working on changing that. Not sure how I'm gonna do it, but I am. He, on the other hand, although he complains that he can't talk forever, does. lol

  • Lol. I dunno but I always tell my hubby what a horrible conversationalist he is. He says maybe 2 words to my 500 sentences. Unless he's babbling about video games...that's a whole other story.

  • Interestingly, my husband and I are actually opposite. He's the talker and I'm generally quiet. But I believe in general, it has to do with connectivity between the two hemispheres of the brain. Our hemispheres are more connected which causes us to be more communicative and more language oriented.

  • my SO always says that i talk too much. and i do. i am a talker and have been my whole life. my mom is quiet. however, my SO is not as quiet as he wants to think. he just talks about different things....and probably more on a normal level....where I talk A LOT.
