I couldn't do the simple life for long stretches of time. I enjoyed 2 ski trips though but it wasn't exactly secluded. I like my comforts.

Actually that's something I've noticed AA. Black Americans (and others but I guess we're only talking about AAs right now) seem to often be extremely confident from my observation. I don't think I've ever been judged for not being that outgoing though. At least not that I know of.

I'd love to live on a deserted island w/ the hub. I'd need it to be modern(wired for tech) and plush, but just us 2.

I'm an extrovert.

I tend to make an effort to seem more outwardly outgoing than I really am in the States. Because if I don't, I come off as uppity.

*sigh* i wish


Quit stealing my dreams

As being a black man, black people usually have an aversion to introversion, shyness, anxiety, and etc that deals not being comfortable or even desire to being amongst people. The males get it worst and you they think you are weak and have no drive. Even called weird and not seem as attractive. But as I grew older I noticed me being a observer and understanding situations being far from them have me perspectives that people respect except for family . And I'm usually always right and it even freaks people out. So i say there positives.

Right! I'm introverted but I speak up for myself real quick and I definitely don't let people run over me and alot of times I am the life of the party. No one intimidates me. Sometimes I just like being alone with my thoughts and I like my privacy. I think they are describing social anxiety.

Yeah, thanked Alias with the confusing post. Those terms aren't synonyms.

I love being introverted. It does only mean that you get your energy from self-time. I always take time out of my day to recharge. And even though too many people at one time can be draining, I enjoy talking to people and learning about them. Just one person at a time though lol

I find being out of my home and interacting with people to be exhausting, and a waste of my time.

I much prefer my own company. A Television, A Book, A Computer, turn off the phone and I'm good.

I say what's on my mind hoping not to offend anyone, but it happens occasionally.   Nothing personal.

Alone, but never lonely

I like being social sometimes but on the other hand I enjoy my own company

I agree about it being draining to be around other people for extended periods of time .... I dont like dealing with their feelings and insecurities and problems.. etc. If you wanna have a good time then cool but dont be a buzz kill and waste my time  LOL

It may come off as stuck up or "ohh she thinks she's too good" but thats not my intention. Its nothing personal... its just me
