Introvert and dating
In the meantime, if you want to perceive me as being an overly kind and sensitive person, there are worse things to be accused of.However, if you assume that I am meek and mild-mannered, there will be a lot of surprises ahead of you.
However, I realize now that blurting out a one word answer during the occasional prolonged silence probably wasn’t getting me the class participation points that I thought it was.The reason I still remember that kindhearted professor, who did not think I was shy and took the time to talk to me after class, was because this interaction was the exception to the norm.I had another professor in college who was a kindhearted person but was not as understanding about personality types.I also have no patience to sit idly by if someone is being manipulative or attempting to take advantage of my seemingly kind demeanor.As an introvert, I value my “me” time far too highly to sacrifice it for fake friends. I’ve spent a fair number of sleepless nights worried about hurting the feelings of people I care about, but the worry will quickly evaporate if I feel that person is making no effort to understand my emotions in return. Whatever happened to the cliché of the “strong and silent” type?If you are an introvert and you don’t talk a lot, people will automatically assume that you are a very meek and mild-mannered person.
What they don’t realize is that we introverts often go quiet because we have so many passionate thoughts rushing through our heads that it’s impossible to verbalize them all.
Over dinner, you practically sit on your tongue to appear demure.
After all, isn't being an introvert ALL the rage these days?
Like most introverts, I have an inner warrior that emerges the moment you assault one of my core beliefs or values.
I don’t like conflict or arguing with people, but I will definitely do it if there is a cause that needs a champion.
Being quiet may leave others to misinterpret my silence sometimes, but that’s okay. It takes time to get to know even the most talkative extrovert.
