Question Do You Like Talkative Guys / Girls?

One of my friends commented to me that I was a quiet guy who doesn't talk much when we went out last week. I told him that I was more of an observer rather than a talker, and I like to listen to others talking. He proceed to call me "You're nuts"

But to the serious point - do you like talkative guys / girls? Or the silent type? (Note: When I say "talkative", I mean those who can become a football radio broadcaster those type - talking until they are asked to stop or their throats become dry)

Re: Do You Like Talkative Guys / Girls?

If I know what's good for me, I better answer "yes".

But they've got to be smart and fairly rational; I don't enjoy talking about the same bullshit over and over and over and...

I don't mind them, as long as they know when to shut up.

Re: Do You Like Talkative Guys / Girls?

No, because I'm talkative and quiet and/or timid guys provide the balance.

Re: Do You Like Talkative Guys / Girls?

Depends on the situation/conversation sometimes, but I prefer when others talk more than I do. Despite all of my long-winded posts I really do prefer listening than talking.

Although I do hate it when I have something I want to talk about, but the person I'm talking to glazes over it and resumes talking about what's "more important." Lame.

Re: Do You Like Talkative Guys / Girls?

That depends on the subject of our conversation. I voted "no" though, as my experience with talkative people, mainly girls because I have yet to meet a really talkative guy, has been more negative than positive. They mostly talk about their life, so you understand how boring it gets after a while cause I really couldn't care less about their problems. But if they have something interesting to say I am all for it. My she-cousin and also one of my friends are like that, they talk a lot but very rarely I am bored with them as they usually are very funny. It gets worse only when I wish to say something myself, often I can't because they begin talking about something utterly different before they let me say what I wish.

Re: Do You Like Talkative Guys / Girls?

Some talking is fine, but when it turns into a constant whining noise infesting your very existance, time to get rid

Well, they need to be able to hold a conversation But they must know to shut up as well.

Re: Do You Like Talkative Guys / Girls?

I am talkative, but surely know how to listen to people... So I suppose -and I hope- I don't fall into the "radio commentator who can't shut up" category

My best friend is like that sometimes, when she's on you can't stop her until she's finished but she's a very good listener and (almost) always makes sense

Laissez nous créer, une arme en amour, une bombe à lumière, un fusil à fleur, une vie sans barrière.
Laissez nous rêver, d’un enfant président, d’un roi sans couronne, d’un Jésus indien, d’un Dieu qui pardonne, même ceux qui l’oublient.

Re: Do You Like Talkative Guys / Girls?

There are people I like who talk a lot and people I like who talk not that much. What matters much more to me is what a person does say when they do talk. A combination of openness, humility, humour, self-awareness, thoughtfulness and good taste does it for me.

Re: Do You Like Talkative Guys / Girls?

I'm quiet so I'd prefer someone who's louder but I can't stand people who talk BS just to hear the sound of their own voice.

I Nadal. Serena Williams. Venus Williams

Like: Haas. Tsonga. Kiefer. Bartoli. Mirza. Zheng. Bolleli. Safina. Mauresmo. Monfils.Jie.


Hate: Djokovic. Lubjicic. Sharapova. Murray. Dementieva. Soderling.

Is there such a thing as a non-talkative girl ?
