Okay, so I know it's a little XKCDish... But seriously, I'm an engineer!

I think relationships aren't quite as complicated as engineering. ;)

Neither are they as formulaic and structured, which kind of bugs me. I'm not autistic or anything, but a flowchart of how to conduct interactions would make my life a lot better - As it stands now, I just flounder around awkwardly, fairly sure I'm doing it wrong.

Do you want me to create a flowchart for you?

It can be done? I especially need a flowchart on smalltalk.

Person: Man, we have some weather going on!
Me: What does that even mean? There's always weather.
Person: Well, I just mean it's really raining out.
Me: As opposed to what? Synthetic rain?

It just gets more bizarre from there. I know it's bizarre in benefit of retrospect, but when it's going on my only cue is this vague sense of "I don't think this is how conversations work..."

Lee, you wonderful person, you've beautifully captured a subset of smalltalk! Now I just need you to do the rest of it for me.
