Yesterday I began the fun adventure through the article 23 Signs You’re Secretly an Introvert. Aaaaand onward we go!
2. You go to parties -– but not to meet people.
I think the image says it all. Ha! I love to have fun and party and drink and be a little nuts, BUT if there’s mostly people I don’t know well enough to completely let my hair down – FOR. GET. IT.
I clam up, I shut down, and everyone who DOES know me well is all “What’s wrong?” The hubby is a people person, and usually he ventures off and there I am – alone with myself fake smiling all night, when I’d rather just be clinging to his arm all night. Sure, there are some rare instances where I’m just feeling down and I’m not at my peak party ‘tude, but more often than not, I’m just uncomfortable.
My dream parties are those in my own home where I have control of the guest list. There are no unknown variables or 6 degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon that I’m forced to entertain. The people I love the most and trust the most are in attendance and I have the best time with every single one of them.
I am kind and polite and do my best when the situation is out of my control, but, yes, sometimes I am thinking of all the internet time I’m missing out on – go figure, strangers in my computer I’m OK with. 😛
It’s my biology, sorry!
