Any other introverted bees who do not have a lot of friends?
My new boyfriend is Mr. Social extrovert! He always has something going on, as he is super involved in his community (fundraisers, committes, etc), his job as a police officer makes for lots of “night caps” with the guys, not to mention a core group of friends he has had since high school and they all frequently do things together. Of course sometimes I do things with him when the wife or girlfriends come along, but a lot of times he does things on his own and sometimes I find myself pretty down in the dumps and bored when he isn’t around because I don’t have nearly as much of a social life, I just work and go home and then repeat. Lately with it getting colder outside and darker early I find myself getting extra bored and mopey when he isn’t around to keep me company. I miss having my friends around but my 3 closest friends have small children, full time jobs, etc (1 is pregnant with her first) so I really don’t see them much. I am lucky if we get together once every 3 or 4 months.
If you are an introvert bee with a social butterfly SO, fiance or husband… what types of things do you do to stay busy? I looked into book clubs but I am so shy I am not sure if I would feel comfortable joining one with all strangers. Of course my hobbies include reading, writing, household projects… all solitary activities. I really want to break out of this comfort zone of mine a little, I think it would make my SO happy too… because he sees how bored and mopey I have been!
