Re: Did I reject a compliment (again)?
This is totally one of the reasons I wish my "him" would get an email or something (no text plan and doesnt know how to text... SO maybe he's right... little bit cave man there HAHA) Anyhoo... I TOTALLY do that all the time! He says something, basically hmm not the rightthing, and in stead of translating it to his language in the moment, I am like "WTF! What is THAT!" THen 20 minutes later I want to smack myself on the head!!!!
Just the other night he did kinda that. Things did not end on the high note they could have, I tried to call but he didn't pick up (he charges his fone in his car, no voicemail, no house phone...Yup... cave man HAHA)
I have been trying to get him to get an email so that we can just communicate better, at least while we are working on understanding each other better in the moment.
Personally I think your reaction was fine, but then if you doubt it, you must have a "him" like me who you sometimes have to digest, translate, then react to. My him is working on things, so that he maybe says things better (THANK GAWDS) but my reaction still happens.
You were nicer than I would have been!! HAHA It's so hard sometimes working on things. All those eggshells to get around. Too much sensitivity LOL Backasswards compliments!!! Not easy, but you totally didn't go over the top. Just do your best to communicate that you do realize maybe your reaction was not right, that maybe from HIM it was a compliment, but that he has to work on what he says, and you will try to work on being a faster translator.
