    Thanks, I appreciate it, misunderstandings happen. :>

    I like to help when possible; it had sounded like you had a lot on your mind on your mind, like that your posts/VMs were about more than just what was going on right there and then. I hope I didn't seem intrusive, and I tried to give you a few outs in this VM convo in case you didn't want to talk to me (like when I said things such as "I wish you all the best" or " if you don't want to talk to me that's fine"). I appreciate the apology.

    Cool, do feel free to keep me in mind in case something comes up or you need help outside of your usual support network. There's nothing else I really wanna know, but thank you for willing to be open with me. Have a good one!

    Oops. It appears I had misread your previous message. Thank you for pointing that out. I take back what I said about you not knowing that some people can understand me.

    So, you want to know what's really going on? I value your advice and plan to put it to use. You thought this conversation was for the purpose of complaining? Well, that's partly correct. I "complain", then you offer advice to deal with the complaint. Another thing: I emphasized that you didn't have to help me if I was being annoying. I might have emphasize this to the point where I sounded insolent, rude, or stubborn. If this is the case, I apologize. I had other people I could ask who I knew for certain don't get annoyed by me.

    I'm done saying everything I needed to say to you, but since you seem so willing to help, I'll be happy to let you know if I need anything else. Meanwhile, is there anything you want to know from me?

    I never said nobody can understand you - now you're the one making assumptions. You're the one who said people often misunderstand you.

    I was trying to offer some advice, but it sounds like you would rather just keep doing what you're doing and complain when people don't understand you. That's your decision to make, but I guess you changed your mind about wanting to talk to me.

    So what's really going on?

    This may sound completely strange to you, but I know other people who i contact with via text who are almost always capable of understanding my style of writing, despite the fact that I don't elaborate a lot.

    The tough thing about communicating solely via text is that it's not always easy to discern tone or intention - it happens to everyone, and it doesn't have to be a big deal. What matters is learning from those experiences and adjusting one's style accordingly. You won't really know how much to elaborate without trying, though, right?

    Anyway, if you don't want to talk to me that's fine. If you ever change your mind, you know how to contact me.

    I have no idea how much elaboration will be enough. If I'm annoying you with my confusion, then you're correct in saying that I don't want to speak to you. I have no idea how to feel about this.

    Elaborating on what you mean would probably help with that, as your posts seem intentionally ambiguous. If being misunderstood is a common occurrence, then you may want to reconsider your communication style.

    I'll be honest; personally, when someone speaks to me like you're speaking to me now, I get the impression that they don't want to talk to me. If this is a misunderstanding, then great, but that...kinda proves the point that you should probably try a different style.

    It's surprisingly common for people to falsely assume my motives and goals. That's one of the reasons I'm so reluctant about giving too much information about myself. Keep that in mind if you ever start a discussion with me.

    Fair enough. It sounded like you had a lot on your mind, so I just wanted to see if you were okay. If you don't want to chat that's totally fine, and I appreciate the offer to talk. I wish you all the best.

    I know. I clearly made a mistake there with my seemingly cryptic speech and reluctance to answer the question. I'm done with that thread and have successfully deleted the source of our "waste of time", as gimmepie described it. I notice that you are willing to chat despite the confusion I have caused. I had no further intention of discussing with you, but you're free to talk with me anytime if something's on your mind.

    Just letting you know that I can be reached via VM! I'm becoming increasingly confused by your replies to the thread, as it sounds like you'd rather just chat than engage in the topic being discussed. That's totally cool, but I think there's a time and place for everything, and this would be a better medium and wouldn't clog up the thread. :)
