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. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. I looked up a distant ex. Someone I dated about 11 years ago. I don't have the intention of pursuing anything. It was just for the purposes of nostalgia and inducing sadness. I found a couple photos and they struck me: family photos. She's married with a child. I knew this. I met her husband when he was just her classmate... So I found myself looking at these family photos and it's peculiar. I don't relate to them. I come from such a broken family. No togetherness. No birthdays. No phone calls. I saw her with her sisters and all these new kids and I couldn't tell if I longed for that. I can
  21. I’m a bit of an introvert so I know I can be standoffish with barriers. We messaged a couple of times online and decided to meet. This guy instantly sat too close to me for my liking. Every time we would talk he would try to put his hand on my arm or shoulder. He talked about body fat and started to take my arm and pinch for fat all the way up. He was trying to be playful and flirty I could tell but it didn’t sit well with me. Next he tried to touch my stomach. He told my I was very pretty about 3x. He played with my straw and drunk out of it and really wanted me to try his drink. Then he’d go
  22. Hello, I have been having a really tough time after a separation after being married for 4 years. The roller coaster ride is insane, tears in my eyes on the way down, feeling amazing on the way up, everyday is different. I have been doing no contact, but I broke it a few days ago to see her (man, how do you guys even get though the days without seeing that person you love). I can tell she really wants to see me because the day before I asked if she deleted me from a messenger app and I said if this is what you need I will do the same. She panicked and contacted me the next day by text and
  23. Let me start by saying I am a true introvert, so just the idea of dating makes me uncomfortable. Online seems to be the best place for me to meet men, since I can come off a bit uninterested or y on the social scene, unless I feel super comfortable (which is very rare). Thing is I very rarely get passed a second date, I mean at least not with the guys I really like. I do tend to be attracted to more outgoing or very friendly guys, thing is I’m starting to realize those guys don’t really want an introvert. I know first impressions are everything so on a first date if I like the guy, I’
  24. Hey guys, I feel smothered by the girl I'm seeing but it's definetly not her fault, I'm an introverted guy and I crave being alone most of the time, I'm not anti-social , actually pretty talkative about meaningful conversations, small talk however, drains the living soul out of me. I told the girl im seeing that i need more space, she got offended and took it personally, I tried to explain that it has nothing to do with her, but obviously i understand why she was offended. I'm having a hard time with relationships because of this part of myself. Why would someone want to date someon
  25. I met this girl about 2 months ago. She is an introvert and doesn't really like to chat on whatsapp. She is online once or twice a day because she is very busy. She has has full time job and studying for another degree. After I met her we went on 2 dates and it seems that she really enjoyed it. Give or take 4 weeks ago I asked If she would like to join me at this coffee tasting place and she said that she is very busy at the moment. A few day later I asked her again and she said that she was sick. She kept on having excuses and ignoring me for some time so I decided to just leave and mo
