beternal Posted March 2, 2017 Share Posted March 2, 2017 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 this me being selfish? An introvert? Socially inept? Social anxiety? I'm the king of excuses when it comes to girlfriends asking to meet my friends but it really makes me feel uncomfortable. I honestly can't work out whether it's done out of embarrassment, shame, being an introvert, being ignorant, being inconsiderate, fear... The feeling in my gut both does and doesn't fit into all of those categories! Opinions? Link to comment
