"Maybe so," I said. "Maybe that's why people don't like me. Never have."
"It's cause you show it," she said. "You make it obvious you don't care whether people like you or not. That makes some people mad." She spoke in a near mumble, chin in hand. "But I like talking to you. The way you talk is so unusual. 'I don't like having something control me that way.'"
Norwegian Wood, Haruki Murakami
