I have it. It’s a mess and has gotten worse over time, probably affected by the butterty progressions in my chart. I write better than I speak and don’t like speaking in front of people. One on one Im ok or with small groups. I’m already kind of introverted but I think it makes me appear even more so. I can’t defend myself verbally so I avoid altercations.
I also have Jupiter retrograde and most of my planets in the 8th house (considered the hidden house/house of secrets) so maybe the universe is trying to lock me away.click to expand

You would be entertained during our family discussions. 😂🤣
Someone is usually always misunderstood at some point until we figure out how to spit out what we want to say.

I just learned to roll with it. I'm already awkward so it just adds to the awkwardness and I'll usually make a joke about it. It can still be frustrating cause you just wanna get what you have to say out and out right lol. I do write better than I speak and I do a lot better with people I know...my Leo moon comes out more and kinda over rides the Merc retro.
Mines in the 10th house....I hate speaking in front of a large crowd and I like to be prepared.. I hate when people come at me with things and expect an answer right then and there.. I need time to process and get my head right so that I can communicate my thoughts better.

I have it. I think I tend to be bad at expressing my emotions and tend to write things better than speaking.
However I’m not nervous speaking in front of a large group. I can give presentations quite easily.

I think I have retrograde mercury it's in 9th though and in Taurus. Taurean mercuries are measured in what they say so it can take a while to get their words out.
I also used to get my words wrong, not so much stuttering or stammering. Guess what? Most people don't notice or care. I would say people losing interest is probably more in your head. Best thing is not to overthink it. One tip I heard was to focus on the other person rather than what is in your head (whether that be sweating, stammering, 100 thoughts a minute) and you usually find their are spaces where to talk. I don't do it, but mirroring works e.g.
"I'm going to the opera tonight"
You: "going to the opera!"
Him: "Yes to see Carmen"
Him "I've never seen it before"
You "Never seen it before?"
It's a bit cheap, but a lot of people do it in bursts. With Gemini rising you are probably a lot more interesting than you may think,

Sounds like my ex. He was very hot in the beginning and then turned very cold, but he never went away completely. Still talk to him casually every month and it’s been over two years but obviously it’s never gone anywhere. Some men just aren’t the serious relationship type. They can’t handle high expectations in a relationship when it gets serious.
well its reasonable if the other person initiates it and puts them on spot, this dude was the one who went waaaay overboard and went i reciprocated then he bailed. so i dont know...
So was my aqua ex. Initiated and acted super in love. Then bailed too.
This is super confusing 😣 why do that?? Maybe they realized the responsibility that comes with these then got cold feet? But that's when u are new to relationships and are still exploring what u want and need, but he's almost 28,... I'm just like huh??
This guy is 34. He’s just not good at committing. He’d rather have something casual because it’s easy and he doesn’t have to live up to any expectations and can be completely selfish. Do you see that with your guy?
Not at first no, he was pretty adamant on commiting, started changing and backing off when I agreed to commit
Right. Mine locked me down in two days making me his gf after one date. But it’s been two years and I’ve witnessed his actions of being unable to fully commit. He just can’t do it longterm.click to expand
