This is gonna sound harsh, but this guy is not as profound as he thinks he is. I let a few things slide in the beginning of our courtship because I found the way he'd rattle off his deep thoughts amusing. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, hoping he was trying to impress me by stringing these seemingly half-baked thoughts together so I played along.
But now it's a few weeks in and I'm realizing that he's not trying to impress me so much as he's trying to let me know that he's more intelligent than me. And, I can't stand it especially since his thoughts aren't that deep!
For example, he once told me that, "the problem with most people is that they just can't understand the trajectory we're on as a planet. It's like, I wish people would just realize that time isn't forever even though it can feel like it is, you know?" My eyes glazed over just typing that. I'm pretty sure that he just wanted to say the word "trajectory" in conversation.
The few times I engaged him and offered a counterpoint opinion, it didn't end well. He became annoyed with me, like I couldn't grasp his genius. There is nothing even remotely genuis going on here. It's a genius-free zone, bud. Anyone can say some words out loud while squinting and looking off into the distance; that doesn't mean shit! I wish I could just shove a sock in his piehole sometimes. How's that for a profound thought?
