How do you stop someone who won't stop talking, and it's about something completly uninteresting to you?

WTF? He starts talking about it and won't stop. I'm completely bored and my brain is shouting out "SHUT UP!!!". But, I can't say that because it would be rude. How do you shut up someone you don't want to hear talk about a story you have absolutely no interest in hearing?

guess it depends on how well your relationship is, and how often it occurs.

If it's occasional, then perhaps listening, despite your disinterest is the decent thing to do.

If it's ALL the time, perhaps you need to spend LESS time with the person...or find someone with similar interests.

If you can - can you try to participate and ask questions, to make it more interesting to you?

I know that my ex-ex and I had pretty good communication and if I went on and on, or he did, we could say "get to the point"...or change the subject without hurt feelings.

But if either of you is sensitive, you might want to be careful with his feelings, especially if you love him...sometimes we just have to listen for the sake of listening.

I guess I wonder that if you don't want to listen to what he says...and you complain that he doesn't listen to you when you need him to...then perhaps this isn't a really good match?
