> When we're talking about hard stuff I usually don't look at his face. I look at the flowers (he always has fresh flowers), out the window, at his desk, at the stool, anywhere but at his face.


He always has fresh flowers! thats so cute!!

> Lots of the time he lets the silence sit (but he is pretty astute in figuring out when he should ask what I'm thinking about). When the silence gets too much for me, I look at his face. It is my way of saying "I'm stuck. Help me out here". It doesn't always make him start talking, but at least we both know that I'm stuck...

Yeah Im not sure what is going on with mine. I kept thinking hmm do I say things that are not answerable or difficult to answer am I difficult to respond to. But hopefully I will be able to say somehting next time because its too awkward for me otherwise. Hopefully it is more about wanting me to think. Maybe I talk to much
