Why are people really subtle in interpersonal communication?

I prefer to be more straightforward, and if you're going to ask me something that's none of your business and think you're being slick about it, I'm not going to divulge that information.

Why do people always beat around the bush instead of just saying exactly what they mean?

  • I know how you feel, especially in the context of dating. There are numerous questions of this site about subtle signals and what they mean and who likes who, and I really wish people would just say what they felt and not be so cryptic about everything. Being blunt saves a lot of time and energy.

  • Alot of people are scared of the harsh truth...some people don't like being mean but I think its best to be straight forward
