How do you deal with people that are extremely hyper?
Okay, so I consider myself a pretty chill dude. I like to have nice conversations with people and just enjoy everything little by little. Here’s the problem, there’s nothing more that I can’t stand than an annoying, hyper little teen that’s constantly talking about something stupid. I know I sound paranoid, but I can’t stand the sound of this girl rambling on and on about stuff I could care less about.
Do you have any ideas on how I could match her ‘intensity’ level? She’s cute and outgoing, but I can’t stand her when she goes on a talking rampage. She makes me look stiff when she acts like that because I have no way to react or reply to what she says and does. She likes me, and I have feelings for her, but how can I make myself feel more confident with myself when I’m around her? I’m very relaxed and quite, and she’s very talkative and hyper. We’re the exact opposite and I’m tired of her making me feel bad about my natural personality.
I DO like this girl, but she doesn’t seem to acknowledge that I’m naturally calm and quite. Not shy, just chill… I want to find a way to connect with her without having to tell her that she annoys the crap out of me sometimes or by changing my personality.
