Among his people, feelings, thoughts, and even complex emotions are easily conveyed and easily read by others. This made it hard to have a normal human conversation about feelings with him; he always seemed like he knew what I was feeling, and always had a solution that suited someone from his tribe, but not me. The same solutions he would use on his bride-to-be wouldn't work on me. We just weren't the same. He tried, but it was frustrating for both of us when his attempts to console me didn't work, and even more frustrating when he couldn't think outside the box and come up with another solution. His tribe worked almost like a hivemind, and I simply wasn't a part of it.
