Whats wrong with having a Light Dependent Resistor?
Scenario: Persons X and Y are chatting but not flirting. Person X casually (and not for the above reasons) mentions their spouse. Person Y suddenly thinks, "Oh gosh, Person X thinks I am flirting with them, and has slipped into the conversation a supposedly-subtle reference to their spouse to indicate their non-availability." Person Y then quickly ends the conversation in embarrassment, but not because they were actually flirting. Person X then reflects on the strange end to the conversation, and thinks it must have been because Person Y was flirting.
Now that's easy. Two ways:
B) Smile gently and give a look, as in "lol, what were you thinking?". If X actually referenced her spouse to indicate anything, X'll know you weren't actually flirting, or just flirting as among friends. If that person didn't, X'll most probably ignore it anyway.
I'm actually not bothered by people being proud of their spouse, I'm happy for them. When they keep mentioning it though I leave them and look for people I can actually talk with.
Society telling me I have to go out with someone makes me try to avoid him at all cost.
I find that funny. At the very beginning of my life, I did everything because society told me to be "in". Then I started doing the opposite, because I wanted to be "free".
Now I do what I want when I want because I want. I don't care if its mainstream or not. I don't care if society dislikes it or not. You should try it out, too.
Yeah, see, but if you just say "Rebecca", I say "Who the hell is Rebecca?"
I figure the easiest way is to say "my girlfriend, Rebecca" the first time, and then stick to names...
.... Rebecca ...
-> Who the hell is rebecca?
-> Ah, ok, thanks.
Sometimes you're friends forget. Sometimes you forget whether you've told them or not.
According to my personal experience this works best.
It doesn't work though when someone of your siblings and your beloved both have the same name.
I had a severe crush on a girl named Hannah.
My (back then) 7 yrs old sister's name is Hannah too.
I figured I'd best call the girl Hannah Edot (As in Hannah E.)
Then I realized my sister's name is Hannah E. too >_> (not the same father, hence we have a different last name)
She started dating another boy infront of my eyes a couple of hours after telling me I was her "protective angel" and "always there for her" and stuff =D
