I'm not sure to what extent..In my real world circle, I can be quiet ,low volume and don't seek attention from anyone. When approached, I handle conversing fine. I keep chatter short but still friendly.My class door is closed at all times so people know I'm working..no time to take my attention away from the class. I never call people after work to shoot the breeze.. No way. I talked all day & I'm officially done a 6pm. Talking on EP feels different. My place is quiet but I like clearing my head by reading stories. I never bother people ..I don't seek attention in any way. No drama..I like the give& take of this site. If you aren't open to chat, leave a gift or gesture. I get it..we all like some solitude. It's all good.
