About Me

  1. Sup y'all! In advance: Sorry for that giant wall of text that will follow 😅 (if in wrong Forum Area or any other issues, feel free to delete) Short backstory to me: im 25 and im a huuuuge introvert. I only noticed the Pandemic when the people around me slowly started to go nuts a month in or so, i can literally be alone in my appartment for 2 weeks without feeling lonely or bad in any way. I always feel like everyone is judging or watching me (im not a psycho trust me 🤣) and there is nothing worse then being forced into a social situation. As an example, the waiting room
  2. I am a heavy introvert and find large group settings draining. Whenever I have a party/clubbing event I try my best to fit in by talking a lot and acting extroverted. I don't like drinking and everybody knows this. The problem is I feel left out when others binge drink to get drunk around me and become loud and obnoxious. I see those people (who are my very good friends) as selfish and their behaviour as unhealthy. It puts me in a position of spite and I usually refuse drinks and become designated driver because of it. I assume my stress and judgement for these people is out of jealousy.
  3. I am a 32 year old single gay man. I rarely meet guys I am interested in dating seriously. Recently however I did. The conversation was very one sided on our first official date and I left the date knowing I should have engaged more. It's a fault of mine, it's not that I wasn't interested but I am just shy and reserved at first. Anyway - he sent me a message after saying he wants to go out again, and so on and so forth. Cut to today, our schedules haven't really allowed for another date but we have plans next week... We've been texting in earnest, some flirtatious. Really randomly today he has
  4. So I work in a shop and there's this girl who comes in quite often who I'm kind of into. She's displayed a few signs that could be positive but are they that positive? Generally she's really nice although kind of strikes me as a bit shy as well, she just has that whole introvert feel about her. She's called me 'babe' a few times when leaving ("thanks babe"). On one occasion she asked me about the e-cigs we sold and when I mentioned I was thinking about one she said "yeah, me and you should both get one together!" Before she'd smilingly comment about how I'm always working on weekends, and
  5. We've been together for a little over 3 years now, engaged and great chemistry between us. As in, we both can't imagine someone better for each other and always talk about the future together. Any conflicts we have won't last more than the day they happened and they have been seeming further between the longer we've been together. I love her with all my heart, can't imagine a world without her and up until a few of weeks ago she would say the same. I am a senstive introvert. She is an introverted extrovert who has always craved more interaction with others (friends, like-minded peo
  6. We've been married a bit over 4 years now. This hasn’t been an issue in the past, but it’s recently been becoming more and more of an issue every day. I’m very shy, not at all a people person. I’m civil and polite to others at all times but I will never go out of my way to strike up a conversation with a stranger. My husband is the exact opposite. When we were dating he’d tell me that he would go out to bars and clubs and make aggressive eye contact with strangers as way to make new friends. I admired that but, to me, that sounds horrifying. My husband had become a regular customer at a strip
  7. I've noticed this recurring pattern/relationship problem with her where something would bother her, and she won't bring it up voluntarily and she won't tell me if I ask her what the issue is. When this happens she's quiet and withdrawn and is noticeably in 'some kind of mood'. It seems that these things don't get resolved, resentment builds up, causes things to bother her more easily, which of course doesn't get talked about, which causes more resentment. It seems to be a vicious cycle of lack of communication and resentment that culminate in a major fight. After this happened a few time
  8. Hi all, It has been a while since I posted on these fantastic forums that have helped me get over three breakups, but I have spent a couple of years being single since my last relationship ended, and I have been trying to work on issues that I undoubtedly have/have had. One thing that I am struggling with is how I react to a perceived wrongdoing by someone, however minor it might be. I'm sure everyone reacts differently to such scenarios, but what I do is go extremely quiet, ignore the perceived offender for hours, build and build this negative image of the person in my head, get in a
  9. My boyfriend and I have been together for almost a year. He is a massive introvert, has some social anxiety issues and intimacy issues. These are all certainly problems within our relationship however we talk about them regularly (much to his dislike of talking about it). My issue here today is something I’m not actually sure if I should be upset about. He is a professional skiier, and skiing is the most important thing in his life. I think during some rough patches in his life, skiing gave him some purpose & confidence and in a way it saved his life. He has 6 “major” races each year an
  10. After 7 interviews this year, I started reading the book "Nice Girls don't Get the Corner Office." In my late 30's and still working customer service-type of jobs at non-profits (with a lot of past knowledge of part-time teaching, volunteer, coordinating school groups, art events, community events, knowing people at pretty much every art and cultural institution in the city), I still can't get that hurdle of getting a middle to senior level Education-type of Manager position (even interviewing at my own company that I've been with the last 5 years! Yes- each department only has 2 people runnin
  11. I'm a shy, reserved, introvert and on too of that I trust no one . So rn I'm going through a rough time and I need a hug (this is so dumb) but I don't have the guts to tell someone what its happening... so what can I do? (plus I'm always that kind of person that it's "happy" 24/7 but i feels so lonely sometimes. I don't show my emeotions)
  12. My kid is almost 10 years old. He is very good in school, loves math and science and pretty high IQ (144) but very sensitive. He cries a lot, especially when he thinks someone mad at him. He is a very introvert as well, he never told us whenever he had a bad day in school even though we smartly asked him. The maximum answer he gave was, "sorry, I really forgot about what happened!". We get all the stories about him from his teacher or other parents. We are working about this issue. Luckily he has many friends, funny, and a very happy kid. The problem is, we are going to divorce soon. I've
  13. Does anyone ever feel like the most frustrating thing about themselves is when their weaknesses don't allow your strengths to shine though? I'm confident I'm good at a lot of things, but because of my social awkwardness and my struggle to feel awake no matter how healthy I keep myself, and on top of that being an introvert and taking a while to warm up to people, I feel like I'm being held back in life. I've had a lot of missed opportunities. Not because I didn't go for it or take a risk, and not because I'm awful at what I do.. but because I suck at connecting with others and maintaining r
  14. Hello all. So, I just recently started a new job a few weeks ago and now I secretly miss a few things about my old job like mainly having off days and time to "recharge." This was a part time job and although it did not provide me with benefits, but did pay two dollars more, the benefit to me was having a work life balance. Now, I struggle with new job, which is full-time. I have to struggle to get up in the mornings and usually feel fatigued and sluggish when I get off. It often seems like my days run together. Another thing is that I have never really had a full-time job, except one I had y
  15. There is a man I have known and had a crush on for about 10 years. We seem to go out once every 5 years or so. We're Facebook friends, have mutual friends, and he works with my cousin. Whenever I am single I get matched with him on online dating sites. I've just been through a horrible breakup with a man I thought I was going to marry. I broke up more than two months ago and have tried to get back out there even if just to distract myself, but have not found anyone who seems worth going out with. I've gone out with two seemingly eligible men and have had no chemistry with either. Last week I h
  16. Hey, Not really looking for 'advice' as such as I already know the answer but just need a place to vent! Long story cut short. I've had a 'crush' on one of the trainers at the gym for quite some time now. As time has gone on he's dropped many hints that he's attracted to me too but neither of us have ever pushed it - I can't speak for him but I've not wanted to put him in a situation where it might make him feel like he's crossing the 'professional' boundary. He talks to me about everything and has confided in me about some difficult times he's been through in his life. He's genuinely
  17. So there's a girl who I used to know when I was a kid, but we were mostly just acquaintances through our parents who are good friends. Started talking to her online recently through social media, I'm noticing little things about her personality that I really like (plus she's pretty so there's that). I've talked to her a couple of times and it's just sort of been like casual hey how have you been what are you doing these days etc. (the micro-elements of the conversations were more lively than that, I think she was mildly entertained). Our parents are still close so there's pressure not to screw
  18. I have always been quiet and introverted. Soft-spoken, I always keep to myself and display a docile, laid-back attitude. I avoid chit-chat whenever possible and only care to talk about deep, meaningful subjects. I prefer working independently to dealing with a group of people; however, I enjoy maintaining one-to-one relationships with a select few. No matter where I work, though, people always seem to take issue with my quietness. I focus on my work and refrain from meddling in other's business. It isn't like I don't say a word all day -- I talk to and am friendly with them. It's just that
  19. And it goes a little something like this. 4 months ago I wanted to meet this girl. I stumbled upon her few times in the past, but that was few years ago. We never even met until 2 months ago. She's my bestfriend's cousin. I asked him if he could introduce me to her or something of that kind, but we couldn't think of anything that's not gonna end up awkward. Lo and behold, we meet unexpectedly while I was with her cousin. Everything went smoothly. Despite the fact that she doesn't go out much we somehow met. We left that bar and went to a more crowded place at which I knew I can't talk anymo
  20. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience like I split up with my ex over a year ago now and I feel like I have moved on but I am just finding it a big struggle to feel like I did with her with any new girl? Ideally, I would like to find a good relationship but tinder etc, not really provided this so far, maybe I am too picky. I'm definitely not the greatest looking guy but not the worst but I just seem to have no self-confidence with girls and to be honest I am very shy and have a lot of insecurities, I over think a lot and always think of the deeper subject, not
  21. I just came to this realisation and I just wanted people's opinions. I've always been a bit of a loner (only child)... I've had relationships, friends, family but hate groups of people and even with groups of my own friends or family, if it's more than two people, I clam up. I have no desire to introduce my friends to each other or to family and likewise I have no desire to introduce my girlfriend to my friends or even my family. The way I see it is I like them all for their own qualities and it would be like mixing apple pie with curry. I like both, but I see no need to mix them. Is
  22. I have lived with my partner and his family for many years, however things have been getting harder for me socially. I am an introvert and find it almost impossible to socialise or leave my room. My partners family does not understand why I am like this, they are very, very loud and social people. I often skip dinners and don't leave my room unless I know no one is out there. When my partner is at work and I am left in the house with his family I will hold my urge to use the bathroom until he gets back (He is usually working from five to six hours) to check that no one is out there. I have tri
  23. I'll cut this short. M21. I'm a professional gamer studying CSE. At the time of my internship I met this girl who's​ very introvert and I fell for her as I see her for the first time, I knew she's the one for me(I'VE Never been in any kind of relationship). So, we talked a lot exchanged numbers but she went back after a month to her college. I didn't got to time to tell her my feelings. And I can't say them over phone. I know she cares for me and kinda like me. But when I asked her about relationship she said she doesn't believe in relationship and don't wanna be in one as this is her person
  24. Ive been seeing this girl for about 2 months, and we've been dating exclusively for a couple weeks. Everythings going great, shes always telling me how lucky she is to have met me. Just recently, she told me about a day party thats taking place in about a week. She invited me but also mentioned that i might not enjoy it because there are lots of people and its loud and theres lots of dancing involved. She told me that they bar hop, and then go from house to house and some of them are frat parties. She will be with 2 girls. one is single. the other is in a long distant relationship. I am no
  25. So I’m rather an introvert, I’m definitely someone who keeps a bit of distance at work. I’m friendly and polite to my coworkers, never had any issues, senior managers really like me, I just don’t talk about my personal life at work. We are a small team, we all work in this open office which gets hard for me sometimes. I crave like 10 minutes of solitude sometimes, as I’m either talking to my coworkers (works related stuff), or at phone with clients all day. There are days I’m less chatty than usual, just because I sort of need tor recharge my batteries. I’m very involved in everything work rel
