Reply To: confessing and being honest
Platonic example. You’re at a party. You meet an interesting guy – who happens to be in your field of work – and have a conversation. Suddenly, he starts telling you about how his girlfriend cheated on him and he resents his father for not being there when he struck out of the important little league game and how terrible he felt when… what!? Too much information! Sure, he’s just being honest, but this is not the level of honesty you expect to have with a stranger. It’s not making you feel closer to him. It’s just making you wonder why he doesn’t have someone in his life he can discuss this with. That’s what you would sound like if you were to jump the gun on sharing your emotions with a woman.
