I have a little sis who is ays i am boring. actually she is 4 years younger to me and she wants to share a lot of things with me. Talks related to her friends, office and general ones. But i do not take interest in her talk too much. She has recently started complaining that i am a boring person. I hear her talks properly but i am unable to carry on the conversationfor a long time. I think it is due to age difference and he relation we are sharing. But who can she call me a boring uy, My friends never complain that sort of thing. Yeah, but i must admit one thing tht i am bit moody. I talk only when i have mood to do that. Is being moody makes you boring????????

no, i dont think so. she just has to accept you. if you dont feel like talking then she just has to respect that. you're not obliged to listen to her rantings. i have a younger sis too who says that i'm boring. but it has nothing to do with not talking or listening to her, but more on the looks, or physical appearance. my sister and i are like day and night in personality. she's an extrovert while i'm an introvert. she's always dressed to the nines. with lots of accessories that i find useless. even when she's going to the beach, she looks like she's going someplace else, with her denim jacket and rubbershoes. who'd wear that to the beach? i'm more of a simple person, and i dress appropriately. she thinks i'm boring. well i think she's cheap.

It seems you and your sister are two completly different personalities. And you have admitted that too. So she dislikes you and your tastes and you dislike her and her tastes. It happens sometimes. When two individual are totally different in nature they will obviously find eachother boring. Its natural. Again she is your sister so dont have any harsh feelings for her. And being a brother you should take care of her.

lol. i'm not her brother. i'm her elder sister. lol. but yeah you're right. we still have each other's back. though i know that she can take better care of herself more than i can of myself. lol but we do talk and laugh a lot about our lives. it's just the taste that we can't agree on.

She is still young, forgive her. Everybody have a mood. Sometimes we would like to talk our heart out. And, at times, we wish to be alone and have quiet time. Of course, moody and boring are not related. Just forgive her as she is still young. Take care.

No. I am not annoyed with her. I love her a lot and she loves me a lot. but whenerver she says i am boring i feel something not good. I feel i am giving her time and not understanding her. I feel i am not giving due respect to her feelings but i am helpless in that regard. I simply dont enjoy her childish talks as i think she talks immaturity and i am a mature guy.

I think its rather normal and typical for siblings to find each other boring and bland. Yet really its a difficulty that each one has to relate to someone that is of a different age. Typically after the age of 17 the siblings find more common ground with each other, and thus the relationships are thrown into a better blend.

I have 4 girls of different personalitys and wide age gaps. I have over the years listened to them put each other down for things such as you describe. I do think it really is just the age difference. When you are very young, four years is a such a huge gap. as you get older I am sure you will bridge the gap as my girls have all done. Sisters have a special bond that nothing can override. My girls are grown now and it is such a releif to see them becoming best of friends as different as they all are. No being moody does not make you boring. I suggest not focusing too much on this. My girls actually seemed to grow apart before they grew closer. Now they are like best of friends and that is not to say that they don't get into their little tiffs. Just last week the oldest(30) got into an argument with the 13 yr old....it was like there was no age difference at all.

you are pretty similar to my attitud.i dont talk that much especially if a person is new to me. and believe me many people do find me BORING? maybe moody attitude is the twin brother of boring. it does not attract any people to deal with you and it only worsen relationships. i myself is talking from an experience but honestly i like myself for being it. people dont always comes around and bother me when i am moody coz they know i dont mind them.i think sometimes its bad or sometimes its good to be like that. my last recommnedation BE SENSITIVE TO THE SITUATION. if your sister just want to play, play with her or chat with her if oyur not busy or if you can see she really need it but if not just to annoy you then be moody...

this can be her opinion,you don't have to take it serious.you don't have the same age,same,preoccupation,same way to be.we are different one to each other,it is normal that your sister wouldn't be attract of your preoccupations,she has other preferences,maybe she likes talking more than you do.don't be upset and don't try to change your way of being just for making her pleasure.be yourself,despite what she says i'm sure she loves you.

I am four years younger than my sister. When we were kids the age difference mattered, but now as adults it really doesn't. The reason why we are not as close as we probably should be is that we are two totally different people with two totally different personalities, and two totally different sets of interests. It's not that either one of us is boring, it's just that because of our differences we really can't relate to eachother.
