It's not like women use body language and tone to convey their actual meaning.

Come on you guys! I'm autistic and I can pick up on this stuff!

I don't know what planet you're living on. But other than that, it's beside the point. It would be easier if they just said what they meant.

Since when does any emotion make sense?
User avatar #10 to #9 - derpwolf ONLINE (06/25/2013) [-]
Generally they're prompted by outside stimuli. How could they not make sense?
User avatar #11 to #10 - srskate (06/25/2013) [-]
Because by definition they're pretty fuzzy. They can't quite be explained or expressed.

Maybe for you. Not so much for me.

Next time you are angry, explain why you do some of the things you do.

Like when I lose at halo, I wanna break things.

Well, besides the fact that I don't ever get angry, I don't usually act on my emotions when they do come about. It just isn't important enough.

You sound more like an outlier than the main.

I never said I don't get irritated. I've been pretty much conditioned in every way possible to not act on my emotions. **** goes down that way.

That still sounds more like an outlier.

I'll try to explain the image, but understand the idea isn't lending itself to words.

The woman in the picture is visibly angry, but she doesn't want to draw attention to it. It would be preferable if it was not her that brought it up, but that her boyfriend noticed the clues she is leaving and was sensitive enough to try to cheer her up.

My girl-friend does this all the time. She gets angry and doesn't want to talk to me because she is angry at me, so i need to press the issue, and we wind up happy a bit later. Just a skill to pick-up.

That actually sounds really creepy. Like they're trying to pry into business you obviously don't feel like bringing up.

Your pronouns are vague.
gotta pause so I know what you mean

Who is they, and who is you in your comment.

"They" is any party, of either one or more people, who attempts to bother you based on feelings you haven't verbalized to them in any way shape or form other than uncontrollable body language.

"You" equates to the party who gives away emotions they don't feel like discussing with nonverbal ques.

body language is incredibly controllable. It's done on purpose to visibly show anger. People can fake happiness all day, but if one wants someone to notice one's sadness, they will make it visible through body language.

It's more of a plea for "help."

But then there are false alarms. I've had people ask me if I was upset or angry for no reason. Most of the time the answer was no, and if it was ever yes, I didn't feel like discussing it with them anyway, so it just freaked me out. Sometimes people make it based on how I sound when I speak, but my voice became a bit more monotone over the years since I have a friend with almost no vocal inflection whatsoever. It's just odd.

And people ask because they care. That isn't creepy. That is normal.
User avatar #24 to #23 - derpwolf ONLINE (06/25/2013) [-]
I dunno, man. It's all based on one's frame of reference. I just find that really strange. I guess most people just assume it's the normal and right thing to do.
User avatar #25 to #24 - srskate (06/25/2013) [-]
Well, normal is defined by the most.

Is it really normal that we refuse to allow certain arrangements of light emissions to occur through certain mediums.
