This has something that has been happening to me a lot in the past few years. Every once in a while I'll meet someone who takes it upon himself (because it's always a guy) to be the one who breaks down the wall. Now, look, there are some people in my life that I have known for years who actively try to push my boundaries a little bit, but they seem to be able to sense when they are going too far and can ease off without feeling hurt. These people are some of the best in the history of time. But the randoms get personally offended if I don't want to immediately start sharing my deep dark secrets with them. If I demur, I get lectures about how "not everyone is going to hurt you!" which, like, fucking duh, maybe I just don't feel like talking about suicide attempts or whatever with somebody I met two weeks ago. The people that I want to share things with, I do. And FINE I sometimes like being a little...engimatic, dropping hints about a possible Tragic Past. I may not act anymore but I still have the awful artistic traits, guys.
I do admit that when I start to get really frustrated with these people I sort of just want to sit them down and say "Check it - " and then list off every personal thing I can think of, just so they'll stfu.
Is it a damsel in distress sort of scenario? Or guys who have seen Before Sunset too many times? Or is it just how some people are, wanting to know the nitty gritty about everybody they've ever met? Whichever it is, it remains annoying. I don't need conversations to be even more laborious than they already are for me.
