A talented/succesful guy asked me this question recently : Are you the typical good guy , who goes home right after the (college) lectures ?
A bit confused , I didn’t see the point of denying it , so I said : …um yeah.
One of my friend , who’s been applying for Stanford (meaning he’s busy) , was told that he doesn’t have a social life . If you knew him a little bit closer , you’d be amazed how extraordinary experiences he had . He is definitely not a couch potato..
His younger brother has the sickest stories that I’ve ever heard , yet he doesn’t talk too much at the dinner table.
Two of my old high school classmates never really talked, then suddenly when they started drinking they became extroverts … Even when they were not drunk.
Last story , because you might be bored of these anecdotes 😉 . The last memory of my childhood crush talking was exactly the beginning of our early childhood… I’ve always remembered her as a “shy/silent” girl. So what is she up to these days ? She has a boyfriend and they behave in a quite extroverted way. (Sadly , that boyfriend is not me . :D)
No offense , but aren’t we all “good guys/ good girls” in formal settings ?
If you believe that you will be forever alone , you will be forever alone . Maybe things can change , so don’t fear it. If all else fails , you can choose to have a drink . 🙂
PS. : I should invest more in my college relationships like introducing myself to other introverts . What are your New Year plans ? 😀
