@Redthreat to answer your question, i'd have to say that there isn't really a lot of point to communicating with someone who can barely respond to you. conversations are supposed to be mutually beneficial, right? you gain new information, emotional relief, etc. but if you don't get any of that from a conversation, it's wasted time. of course, some people (introverts) take time to open up to people, and can initially appear very emotionally cold & laconic. that's fine, that's excusable, i'm one of those people too. i guess my point is that if someone is barely responsive to you, it's best to give them some space and see whether they warm up and become more sociable. if they do, yay for you! if they don't, it's best to stop
