I was going to namechange for this but ah what the hell!
Ok so here it goes, I met a lovely French man six weeks ago. He is courteous, considerate, kind, sexy, funny etc. You may be asking what the problem is, well.............he never shuts up! Sorry that's a bit blunt but it is basically true.

I'm myself blessed in the gift of the gab dept but feel if I don't "pardon the pun" say something <if I get a chance> that this relationship won't go anywhere, unless
I zone out and keep nodding and umming in the right places, which I'm already starting to do. Can anyone advise me on how I can sensitively approach this with him?

GibbonInARibbon Tue 24-Jul-07 20:10:48

yes...he may chill a little over the coming weeks and notice it's a one way conversation

Every time he opens his mouth, put your fingers to your lips and stroke his bollocks at the same time. Stop stroking the minute he starts talking again.

Like Pavlov's dogs, he'll eventually make the connection.

Oh God, now I'm paranoid that when I next meet him, I'll keep thinking of this thread and will lol at inapropriate moments.

Well, M, if you loike him you may have to literally shut up and put up.

CountessDracula Tue 24-Jul-07 20:08:55

this is a little unsubtle but could do the trick

Desiderata Tue 24-Jul-07 20:08:05

TnOgu, have you been smoking something?

TnOgu Tue 24-Jul-07 20:07:53

That's actually a very good idea, CD

MhamaiJane Tue 24-Jul-07 20:07:45

CD, oh please give me some hope that I can gently and firmly guide him into taking a breath. <hopeful emoticon> I loike him <wails>

CountessDracula Tue 24-Jul-07 20:07:40

TnOgu Tue 24-Jul-07 20:07:21


CountessDracula Tue 24-Jul-07 20:06:51

you could nick a "quiet carriage" sticker from a train and put it on your front door

MhamaiJane Tue 24-Jul-07 20:05:20

Oh T actually crying with laughter here........genius

GibbonInARibbon Tue 24-Jul-07 20:04:30

good one desi

CountessDracula Tue 24-Jul-07 20:04:17

oh god
bin him

sorry but if he loves the sound of his own voice then there is little you can do

Desiderata Tue 24-Jul-07 20:04:10

Then tell him you won't shag him unless he shuts up.

RubySlippers Tue 24-Jul-07 20:03:56

but great sex ...
that counts for a lot, again IMVHO

GibbonInARibbon Tue 24-Jul-07 20:03:48

hmmmmm <strokes chin>

I would honestly find a jokey way of saying 'shut the fuck up it's my turn now'

jokey and more nicely put of course

Desiderata Tue 24-Jul-07 20:03:27

Such a shame, though. No one is ever perfect, are they?
