"opposites Attract," Says They. "yeah, If You’re A Magnet" Says IOK so this is both a question and a story. The question: does anybody else ever get the feeling that they attract extremely extroverted lonely people? because I've had a problem with this.
The story: sometime in my second year of college I met a guy who was extroverted but socially awkward. I was OK being casual friends with this guy but as an introvert I do not form fast friendships. He on the other hand did. And, as I learned later, he "liked" me. Needless to say I had to cut him out of my life. Now again I am having the same problem. I have met another extrovert who does not have many friends. This really puts a burden on me to hang out with him, so therefore in all my wisdom (note sarcasm) I have taken to avoiding him. As we all know avoidance does not work 100% of the time and the last time I hung out with him he asked me if I had a boyfriend. Its times like those when I wish I was a better liar, I told him no but that I'm not looking. Emphasis on not. He let it drop but still tries to communicate with me. Everybody should know that after a rejection it's a bad idea to keep in touch. This guy is going to end up hurt. I still try avoidance but as we all know...
So back to the question, does this happen to anyone else?
