crab is pretty funny for a CRAB. anyway, one approach i discovered a few years ago when calling someone is to instead of first saying "what's up?" or "how are you?", say "what are you doing?" i found that people tend to find words more easily when i ask them that, and then i feel more relaxed and things flow better. another possibility is to have a short clear large-print (important) list of possible discussion topics in front of you when you're on the phone, tho that should only be resorted to under duress, because otherwise it sounds too rote and can be too distracting.

but honestly, i agree with the other old lady giving you advice: if there's a silence, don't sweat it, there's no magic approach or line you should throw out there, adn sometimes silence is nice. besides, she's probably not expecting perfection, and if she is, then she's not good enough for you! how boring is perfection, seriously. rough edges are what make people interesting. oh, but i could give you one line to throw in: "so, what do you think of the nice global warming we're having?" (but maybe you're weather hasn't been really really weird this "winter" like ours in chicago has).

Bah...humbug. It's a 'feel good' sensation that is the result of chemicals flooding your bloodstream and bathing your brain. Mother Nature just being a biotch.

Just about ya. Just be forwarned that if you go and spill your guts to her the possible rejection if she doesn't feel the same way.

I'm well aware. What's funny is no matter how much of an idiot I've been at times she's still crazy for me. Actually I had that conversation problem last night so I broke all the social rules and actually asked her "what do you normally do when you come to a mental block and cant think of anything ot talk about? And why does this always happen when I talk to girls I'm interested in?" And that opened up several minutes of conversation so it was cool. Then she sadly had to live.

Love died with Shakespeare (sp). Now there is only shared loneliness between two broken hearts hoping for some type of reconciliation to that deep longing and yearning feeling that claws at them inside. Two people hoping that if they can find solice in one another, that maybe, just maybe it will make that feeling go away. Maybe, for one brief moment, they can actually feel warmth, comfort, and a little joy before it is snatched from them and dashed upon the rocks of despair and hopelessness once again before returning them to the ever widening black hole that is their true life.

NAH! Love is very real. It just takes a while to find it and I think the response is chemical but I do not believe that it is all chemical. I think there is a bit to it that defies explanation which is why so many people have so much difficulty dealing with it and understanding it.
