    Hi Patty! Thanks for popping in! True that sometimes the thank you doesn't come across in the body language or emotion - and it becomes kind of dilated or sounds insincere. And, absolutely no worries, it is a general question indeed! :-)

    That is so true, Sherry! A lack of balance in reciprocating!

    It's their insecurity, as you've said. It makes them think we're cynical when we compliment them, and when we don't, they're not good enough!

    This was the most creative role play I've ever read! True. Nihuls never acknowledged Joker fully, so it fell flat. I guess that's what we mean by not feeling appreciated!!

    That's the thing, when it's said too casually, it loses its effect!

    That's the typical teen for you, pmorries! They think that after clearing up their rooms, they should be given a medal of honor. And we should forgive people for being preoccupied!
