“I don’t care about your why, but mine”

“I don’t care about your why, but mine.”

Those are not your words, but the words of the one you want to invite to dinner. Actually, it’s not even his words. If they were, it would be good for you, because it would give you very valuable information: the information that the one who is interested in that dinner is you, not him. It wasn’t his words, but his thoughts. But since people don’t find it pleasant to share thoughts that displease the listener, they are usually kept quiet. This implies that you have to be the one to guess and anticipate them.

And how can I know when they will emerge?

You do not need it. I will do that work for you. The answer is: “Always.”

You will have them as long as your dinner invitation focuses on why dinner is so important…

… for you! (Instead of for him).

These are the phrases that almost all of us have made the mistake of using at some point or another:

• I am very excited [yo] with being able to meet with you because I know that your knowledge would be very useful for the project [mío] what [yo] I am developing.
