I know this person is in a serious relationship, if that matters. I'm not expecting anything "serious" but I would like to move beyond the same topics, or at least my life, my experiences, my comments being what we talk about 90% of the time.
I've tried like asking about certain rock bands, rock stars but, again, it's always me that starts the conversation, will almost always. Yes, I've asked point blank "is there anything, anything you want to know about me or know more about me than you don't know"?
The reply I got was complete silence and a stunned look. I think you asked me about some old pictures I took. But, I told them that that really didn't count. I said something real about me, but nothing.
Maybe this person just is not interested in me besides my ability and tendency to make them laugh. I guess I'm quite funny, but not a complete joker 24 seven.
I know this person cares and expressed it a few times verbally and through e-mail. I just don't get why they won't talk about themselves, start conversations beyond the superficial and rely completely or almost completely on me to say something.
Could it be immaturity, lack of interest or just that they see me as fitting a certain need, making them laugh, and beyond that they do not take me seriously, as a person, as a friend or someone that matters to them and their lives.
I cannot think that they don't take me seriously which may just be the cause. If this is the case, how do I change things and make them understand that I am a whole person?
