    Ok I threw a virtual party yesterday

    and everything went great "yay!" But today I'm going to an actual party. I hate parties. So I'm just going to step off a cliff. I will post another experience on how it went.

    I am an introvert and really am having a hard

    time to make friends, but I really need someone to talk to. An honest person who is non-judgmental and willing to accept I am who I am. I do not know if I am a good friend, but I am a great listener, empathetic, and a very non-judgmental person. However, I do really need a...

    I hear people say they are introverts to me all

    the time while I think they are extroverts compared to me. Does the make me an extra introvert? Also, are than any other introverts that are complete weirdos? U can tell I am an introverted weirdo, b/c I never act weird around strangers.

    Anyone out there that has zero friends?

    and I mean zero. Nobody to call and nobody to call you. In a way it's a relief because it absolves you of any responsibility to maintain any sort of relationship. But on the other hand you feel so stranded and always wonder what the hell is wrong with you...

    Screening Calls: the Privilege of An Introvert

    where you're forced to attend and expected to remember all the names of your cousins you've never met. Add to that all the aunts and uncles who still pinch cheeks. Really?!

    I hate pointless converstaions.

    I'd rather spend my time alone with my thoughts and my music. It's not always good when you have no one to share those thoughts with but I guess it's better than being forced into an exhausting social situation.

    Or at least not so chatty. You don't need to talk non stop to communicate well. I know some introverts like chatty friends, because it takes pressure of, we don't have to talk as much. But to me it's overwhelming. I like some silence. I like being inside my head. I...

    Just because someone is introverted doesn't

    We are so misunderstood.

    The funny thing about introverts is once they feel comfortable with you, they can be the funniest, most enjoyable people to be around. It's like a secret they feel comfortable sharing with you. Except the secret is their personality.
