You Are a Memoir You're funny, but many people don't see your funny side. Your subtle dry humor leaves your close friends in stitches. You have your own quirky ideas about the world. You see so much light and promise. You have no patience for small talk or niceties. You want to have conversations of substance. You are an amazing storyteller. You always have a new story to relate, and your friends love to listen to you.
The fact that somebody starts the conversation doesn't automatically mean they don't have any ulterior motives. Sometimes they are just curious about you and want you to reveal something about yourself that they can use against you at some point (they can be your rivals but pretend to be your friends). I have learned that. Not everybody who smiles is your friend or can be trusted.
