I have always been caught. I always take peoples word at face value. If no is what was said, that's what I went by. Unfortunately, I missed out on things because of it. I can't read mixed signals at all!
I am sad and embarrassed to say that I think I have sent you mixed signals before. I guess I never really thought of how that could lead to trouble because I trust you, therefore if I really meant it- you would know the difference.
I am now going to be more mindful of what I am doing/saying. I guess I fall into the trap of "I know what I am really thinking and so should you" when that really isn't the case. I need to make sure I keep on top of my assumptions and see it for what it really is.
I also give praise to Delicious Surprise for being open about her thoughts, it was one of the things that made me realize what I may be doing. The other being that you posted the question as I am sure it was not solely me you were talking about.
