On being an introvert.




Jerry is an introvert. I'm kinda in the middle I guess. It depends on my mood and who I'm with. So ever since we got married, we've really just enjoyed keeping to ourselves and doing our on thang, on our own time, in our own space. But recently we've been pretty social and out going as a couple so I'm kinda proud of us. Not that we've been completely anti-social up to now, but we definitely enjoy our time to ourselves rather than having to socialize and be out and about all the time. Does that make sense?

Recently though, we've been hanging out with our usual group of friends and have had company almost every weekend. Whaaaaat? That's like an introvert's worst nightmare. But ya, we have. And it's been pretty fun actually. I guess it's nice that we've found a group of people who make us feel comfortable and also have similar interests. Also, there's always good food so that helps of course ;)

  1. haha. I have to say, that I'm the introvert in the relationship. My husband is much more social. But what's ironic is that while I am introverted, he's more of a home-body than I am. I don't mind going out (to the less populated areas) but, he would rather stay in and invite people over. Oh the life of compromise. =)

  2. Dude... My husband and I are the same way. I'm actually pretty social for the most part but I am one that doesn't want to have friends just to have friends you know? They have to really be people that I would really enjoy hanging out with. This Sunday we had a couple from our ward ask us if we wanted to come play games and we made up an excuse not to go..... Is that bad??? Haha. I swear we are nice people! But sometimes I just want to sit home and play Mario kart.......

  4. I recommend the book " Quite; The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talkin" by Susan Cain. Jerry should read it! =)

  5. my husband and I are the same way! He's more introverted than me but as newlyweds, we have been enjoying our own time just like you have. we do enjoy being social though and are branching out more and more too!

    1. ya sometimes its so easy to just forget that the rest of the world exists. i know some people who just LOVE having little get togethers every week and can't just stay put. sometimes i envy how out going they are but i still love my couch potato weekends <3
