You are dating this guy who, when answering the phone, always answers in a gruff and rude manner. But once you identify yourself, his whole manner changes, and he’s this sweet and charming person who is genuinely glad that you called. This happens every single time you call, so it’s not like he’s having a bad day or something; that just *is* how he behaves.
How do you feel about this?
A: do you feel special because he’s only nice to you?
B. or do you feel worried because he’s only nice to you?
Or in other words: what does this indicate about his character, his outlook on life, etc?
On a totally unrelated note: check out this hilarious yet disturbing post (rant?) by the waiter.
