1. they might be in on something i should know
  2. they make me laugh
    look, i don't know why either
  3. they like talking about themselves and i'm cool with listening to their opinions; observing and quietly judging is the best
  4. i am often clueless and don't identify when someone doesn't care about me, just likes to talk
    but he was making fun of me as a joke right?
  5. i like to think i have a chance with them
    one time this guy wouldn't shut up about his ex and i never took the hint
  6. actual compliments make me nervous
    i prefer the "insult comic" thing which is actually very destructive
