Why I don't 'understand' subtle hints

Any fool can know. The point is to understand. /Albert Einstein/

It’s almost stereotypical that male human beings prefer clear and straightforward statements and all that subtle hints are completely confusing for them. But it’s not true. At least, not for all. At least, not always. Okay, at least, sometimes it’s not true for some of us.

And here I’m gonna tell some weird vision about what’s wrong with some subtle hints.


Trust in Relationships?

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none. /William Shakespeare/

See previous post for better understanding what’s going on here.

Yesterday this thought popped out in my head. Usually, people talk about “trust” when they are talking about relationships (mostly about romantic one).

But I didn’t mention “trust” in my principles. So I asked myself “Why?”, thought a little and switched to another activity. The answer has arrived when I was riding on the empty road today.


Important Relationship Principles

published on

Hell is other people. /J. P. Sartre/

Some time ago I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about principles upon which I’d like to build high-quality relations with another people. For a long time, they were just some implicit stimuli inside my brain. I’ve always walked around but never proclaimed them loud and clear even to myself.

But one night when I drifted in the ocean of thoughts instead of sleeping as all adequate people do, I catch myself on that feeling that I have something to write down. I did it. In few (?) days I improved that text, translated it and committed to github. There were three important principles about building mature inter-person relationships (not only romantic one) as I see it. About a month ago I’ve added the fourth principle.

You can find the latest version of “Interpersonal Relationship Principles” on github.

But I’m gonna make a quick mention about each principle here.
