If you met me in a large crowd—prior to chatting with me online—I’d be the awkward girl in the corner with her face in her (insert random electronic device here) to avoid actually speaking to people.
Sometimes I wear headphones when I’m not listening to music so I don’t have to talk to people. If you see me at a conference or on the streets of Chicago, you’ve been warned!
Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoy interacting with people, but I only talk when I have something to say.
If you’ve met me in person, you may have a hard time believing I’m an introvert. When I feel comfortable enough around people, I do enjoy talking and carrying on like an extrovert. Being an introvert doesn’t mean I’m shy. It just means I feel uncomfortable in real-life situations where I don’t know anyone.
