    Yep that's me although I grew up with a very

    extrovert/hippie/musical mum and dad ..,.. I loved the entertainment but I'm also not willing to put myself out there showing myself 100 percent, from my experience the closest people I'm not awkward with ...but they have been the most honest down to earth people I've met.

    So alone, no friends, single. And I've no idea how to rectify this situation. Being an introvert is both a blessing and a curse.

    I dont stay in touch with loved ones as much as I should, or like to. Its an odd feeling to miss people so much but not reach out at the expense of possibly being an annoyance.
