It's 5AM and I'm wide awake. Still.  
"When you have been intimate with someone and then discover wide areas where your thoughts do not mesh, gradually you become irritated by all sorts of little things that would never have bothered you before. Habits you once found charming are now tiresome.

[She] sensed that my feelings had changed. It was not her fault. She responded to my silences by trying harder to fill them, yet that only made me withdraw further. It became so unbearable..."

Cheery, right?

We humans do an excellent job of isolating ourselves.

So very true.

This might sound like a weird reference, but I remember an episode of "Clarissa Explains it All!" where Sam was gushing over a girl to Clarissa, telling her how much he loved the girl's little habits like the sound she made when she sipped the last bit of soda from the glass with a straw. By the end of the episode, all the little things he loved about the girl wind up annoying him, and he breaks up with her. Hah.

Oh, I used to love that show!

It's not a weird reference, that's exactly it. A universal truth!
