I have this really weird habit where I find it impossible to save people’s numbers on my phone if I don’t know their full names. Nobody on my phone, as a consequence, has only their first name saved, or only their last name saved, or, has their contact saved with their nickname.
This bothered some people a few years ago, because apparently it was a sign that I’m not close to them. I found that really intriguing, and that got me thinking about how people have different expectations for affectionate behaviour.
I should explain that a little more clearly, but basically, my brain realized how subjective everything was.
Truly, if we’re close, I’m saving your full name on my phone because I find it easier to recall and share.
And also because my brain is really weird with these things.
