Runaway dad on dating site guilty of false advertising
However, I can see our friends getting annoyed because of his constant talking. It also happens when we are around his family -- and they usually end up treating him badly for it.
Is there any way I can gently talk to him about this so he’s aware that he is irritating people?
I don’t want to hurt him, but I also don’t want him to annoy people. I’m also afraid it may affect his employment.
His co-workers get that same look on their faces when he’s talking that his family members do when they are annoyed with him. -- ENGAGED TO A BIG TALKER
DEAR ENGAGED: Your fiancé may have difficulty picking up on social cues, which is why he doesn’t notice that others become annoyed as he drones on and on. You should absolutely point out to him what you have noticed, and tell him you are concerned that it may affect his employment.
Then suggest he discuss his compulsive talking with a licensed mental health professional. This is not to imply there is anything “wrong” with him, but rather that he may benefit from professional help in recognizing the social cues he is missing.
A NOTE TO PARENTS OF YOUNG CHILDREN: Tonight is the night when wee witches and goblins will be out trick-or-treating.
Please supervise them so they’ll be safe. Happy Halloween, everyone! -Love, ABBY
