Eh, as the author of >>10183841
I'll admit to not having been in a relationship in quite a while.
On the other hand, I'm not pretending to know from firsthand knowledge; I'm giving what I would consider standard common sense advice that basically consists of knowing how passive-aggressive tactics work. You will get a few people who simply happen to hate everyone, but for the most part they're simply used to letting other people come to them due to low self-esteem (it's only a problem if you believe everyone should be a self-centered sanctimonious asshole) to ensure they're not imposing on anyone. They're going to analyse how you act around them anyway, and - as a group of quiet people - anonymous will be better served if they approach them by a series of tangents that minimises the possibility of embarassment by a direct rejection.
