9. It feels like I’m in a play every time I’m in a new social situation
Every time I meet someone new, I feel like I’m putting on a show. I’m constantly telling myself to look the in the eye, to look like I know what I’m talking about, to stand up straight, and so on. I’ve memorized a number of tips that help me look more interested.
10. Don’t trust your initial judgment of me
I’ve had friends tell me that they didn’t like me too much when were first introduced to me. I can be reserved and that makes me look impolite. It’s just that I need a while to put myself at ease so I can open up better
11. I can’t flit from topic to topic
As an introvert, I measure my words before I say them out loud. But most people tend to move through conversations very fast and this makes it very hard for me to participate because I can’t keep up.
12. I’m not good at expressing myself
I’ve been told that I don’t show a lot of emotion, be it in my professional life or my personal life. Hiding my emotions comes naturally to me and I just don’t realize that I need to open up a little.
13. I just want to be invisible at times
I just wish I could hide in my own spot, cut off the rest of the world, and be perfectly alone. Of course, I don’t want to be alone forever, just for a short time.
14. I’m all for isolation but I can also get lonely
I like being alone but I also desire affection and friendship and romance. But it’s not easy to create intimate connections.
15. I’m actually happy when my partner has other obligations
This happens when you’re an introvert dating an introvert. We tend to spend a lot of time inside and we don’t have a big house so we are thrown together all the time. So it’s nice to have some time alone when he goes out with his own friends.
16. I really don’t mind when you back out of a plan
I’ll say all the right things to make it look like I’m a little disappointed but I don’t really mean it. I’m usually happy that I’m getting some alone time. At the same time, I need to say those words so that you don’t think I’m glad to be rid of you.
17. It’s not you, it’s me
I’m terrible at communication but I want to tell all those who are close to me that I truly love them. They make my life what it is and I wouldn’t be who I am without them. But I get too immersed in my own head now and then and it’s difficult to come out.
