Introvert dating a social butterfly 2019 cars

opinion

I can hear the air rushing past my ears as I inhale deeply.

What am I doing? How did I get to this point? On a night out, I often have major self-doubts ringing in my ears if someone tries to chat me up.

And then I thought, what if I told everyone what I was really like? So I broke the golden rule of online dating and decided to tell it like it really is. I gave a list of my pros and my cons, my interests, all of the basics such as age, height, body type.

The term refers to people...

Then I gritted my teeth and posted some photos without make-up, with make-up and one of the only full- length pictures I keep. One of the most difficult aspects of all of this was getting over myself enough to work out what my problems actually are.

A few hours in, and I was wondering why my phone kept bleating away on the other side of the room with emails.

I logged in, only to be further shocked by some lovely messages. One aspect I found particularly odd was the several messages I received just with one word. However, interspersed through these were messages from men who had certainly read my profile. Another claimed I read like a female version of him. This became a reassuring trend over the weeks. There was one man in particular who appeared to have a lot in common with me, and I took the first step and messaged him. It could have been worse discovering this at an awkward first date or, even few weeks down the line.

So I continued to message a select few who had sparked my interest and received responses from all. I chatted to a few, some who made me laugh, some who clearly wanted different things to what I did, and Introvert dating a social butterfly 2019 cars with whom I had intelligent conversation. But eventually, I had to bite the bullet and go on a date.

I asked if he was free later that evening for a drink. Not only that, but he seemed even more attractive in real life. He was extremely polite and gent-like, funny and frankly not at all what I was expecting, if I did have any expectations. We talked non-stop about our interests to the point where we later realised we knew very little of the basic details about each other. I was surprised at how much we had in common and that I genuinely felt very comfortable with him.

I asked what attracted him to my profile and to my amazement, his response proves that sometimes it does pay to be honest.

He said he had been attracted to my pictures originally and read my profile, which he thought was fine, until he got to the bad…which he apparently found really impressive.
