if you’re the sort of person who thrives on crowds.
But what if you’re the sort of person who’s drained by crowds or just doesn’t having to introduce themselves and have to make the same small-talk over and over again?
We're good at "getting" people we meet online, good at reading between the written lines.
But like anything else, there's a learning curve to successful online dating.
Since that never happens to me (and because it made me feel like a bouncy, shiny-haired cheerleader for the first time ever), I pushed myself to accept all the offers. If awful dates, which your friends seem to be able to turn into funny anecdotes on a dime, seem catastrophic to you, that’s okay too. And while we’re on the subject of dating fears, it’s okay if you want to cancel.
It’s important, first and foremost, to set some personal boundaries with yourself. It was a strange, atypical situation where a lot of fellas seemed determined to meet yours truly. Ignore your mother when she hounds you about grandchildren.
I prefer to think of it as determined and proactive.
Writing a blog helped me learn how to express my emotions.
It took a lot of practice and hard work becoming more social around girls. It’s a process of enriching your personality and takes place with many small steps.
From schools and companies to working in open spaces, everywhere you go there’s less anonymity. Even though the world is tailored for extroverts, being an introvert isn’t that uncommon.
Studies show that introverts comprise 30 to 50% of our population! I’m a great listener and observer, making me a great friend and perceptive.
