Trynae, a 20 yr old college student, submitted the following question:
Does being an attractive introvert make it harder to survive in an extravert world???
I’m not the most beautiful person, but I’m far from ugly. All my life I’ve been told that I’m a pretty girl. That alone always made me stand out and fit into “THAT” look of todays society. With the attention I get from some, I also feel that I dissappoint people with the way I am. I feel that people aspect more from me since I’m this attractive person. I’m suppose to be super outgoing and love to party or just simply hang out, but I’m the total opposite. People back away from me, because of that. I’ve lost friends, because I don’t like to hang out; I guess they lost respect for me. Yes, it hurts a little seeing people shy away from me, because I’m not that person that people want me to be. I don’t fit into big crowds or can befriend new females, we just don’t click. I’m just now figuring out who I am and it’s wonderful. I always felt different from others, and that’s because I’m an INTROVERT! On the other note my looks attract extraverts, but I’m far from an extravert. Which made me think of my question. Maybe if I didn’t fit into todays society definition of “attractive” it would be easier for me in life and to just be ME
