Relationship Month: Talking about Stuff

One thing I've noticed about myself is that I enjoy talking with people. I like to hear other people's philosophies and share my own or pave my own in discussion. In fact, I find myself enjoying the company of others a lot more if we are able to carry on a meaningful and insightful conversation. I don't expect or even want to share the same points of view about various topics, but I really, really enjoy it if I can have a quality discussion with someone who has a different point of view than me.

Anyway, I don't really have much more to say than that. I like to discuss stuff and enjoy people who are capable of carrying on a thoughtful discussion.

I agree, it's great to be able to have a conversation with someone who has different views as long as both sides get to express their thoughts/ideas and are greeted with respect. It's extremely frustrating when somebody starts getting angry or obstinate when opinions differ from their own.

Your line about "I like to discuss stuff" made me think of the line from The Simpson's where Ralph is hitting on Lisa by saying:
"So... do you like... stuff?"

Jill - the doctor told me that I wouldn't get so many nosebleeds if I kept my finger out of there. :)

Interesting. I read somewhere that the younger generation enjoy the journey towards a goal, more than the end. In other words, the end is not what's most important, it's the process along the way that is most meaningful. My generation on the other hand (baby boomer) it's IS the goal - the end results that is the most important. Does that make sense?

Sort of. I mean, I wasn't saying that I don't feel that truth or what is right isn't important, but I just feel that open communication and the ability to discuss is generally more satisfying than listening to someone's diatribe.
