“Slippery” does not mean “slimy”. I am talking about people who are hard to nail down. They avoid commitment, but not necessarily for a reason that’s malicious.
If you’re a thoughtful person who knows that you often wake up on the wrong side of a line that you intended to hold, eventually you’ll build “room to fail” into your promises.
You might say that you’ll “try” to do something that you totally intend to do… just in case.
This sounds like a cop out but if you get to know someone like this, you see that it’s really all they can do if they want to avoid disappointing people.
satori is like this. She intends to write the daily forecasts and she usually does. But if she doesn’t, she doesn’t! I go to the store for something. If it’s not written down, the odds I will forget are greater than they should be.
Relationships are particularly problematic. Leaving and/or slipping away, is default for a person with this type nature. They have to have a compelling reason to “stay” in any type of container.
This is Saturn Neptune stuff, by the way. Contracts have exit clauses but keep in mind the person who seems flaky, may be doing their level best to NOT be flaky. It’s just hard to stay present when you’re designed to disappear.
Who can relate?
