so who’s more social in your relationship? you or your SO?
i’m not – never have been – and I know that…whereas my husband wants to be around people ALL the time – LOVES being out and about and in social situations…i’m more of a homebody. Yes, I enjoy company – but a lot of times I’d rather just it be us.
He thinks I’m the kind who wants “all the windows shut – fences up, etc…etc…” which isn’t true (mainly because we argued that i wanted a privacy fence when we built our fence in the backyeard last year and he wanted a chain-link / the most see-through possible…and we comprimised with a short-er wooden fence.
I like my privacy. Plus I’m an introvert and always have been. He’s an extrovert.
what about you guys?

We are both social people but I like to go out more than he does. He prefers to just stay at home but when we do go out, he talks to more people than I do. Everyone seems to gravitate towards him because he is always laughing and smiling.

Its hard to say really. We both jump at the opportunity to do social things, so we’re both really social. We love having people over, going out for dinner or drinks with other people. I tend to do more social activities with girlfriends than he does with his guys though. Which is mainly because most of his friends live an hour away and mine are here in the city. He can be just as content sitting home too though, whereas I crave social things! Like I want to go to amusement parks and take day trips or BBQ in the park. He’s happy when we do that stuff, but he’s just as happy sitting on the couch. I can’t wait until we’re in a position to have more fun gatherings! You know, when we’re not wedding broke!

We’re private, introverted people, on the homebody end of the spectrum. My SO is more social than me, partly because he’s had to be for his work. He helps to bring me out of my shell. 🙂

We love making new friends and hanging out with our friends. Most of them are like family now!

He is a sales rep so for work he is very social. But when it comes to going out or doing something with a group he wont go. Its really weird because when we started dating we ALWAYS went out Friday nights we went out together and sat nights we went out with our own friends. But now he wont do ANYTHING. My friend Amy is normally my date 🙂

I’m pretty outgoing (I love to be home by myself too) but he’s WAY more social than I am, he talks on the phone to his guy friends more than most girls I know. 🙂 I’m glad he’s so comfortable with groups of people because my family is very outgoing so he was able to fit right in with them.

omg my Fiance can talk to ANYONE….ANYONE…I on the other hand do not. I am extremely introverted, although i have been more extroverted recently, but nowhere near his level. he could have conversation with someone who speaks a completely different language, and he would still find not only a way to talk to them but to make a connection with them….weird!!! lol. its a gift!

We are both pretty social but I prefer to go out more than he does which is why I voted “I’m more social than SO”. I am that person at a wedding who is the only one dancing on the dance floor. My SO has a great sense of humor though. He would prefer to have friends over the house.

I am definitely more outgoing than he is, although neither of us is THAT much into being out. We’d both rather be home than most any other place, and neither of us is into bars or big parties at all. But I do like hanging out with people and smaller groups from time to time and I”m relatively comfortable meeting new people in a small group setting. Fiance on the other hand would be perfectly happy to sit at home with me every night for the rest of our lives and never see another soul haha. He will come out with me and he enjoys himself when he does, but he’s definitely a bit nervous about meeting new folks or new situations.

I’ve been a performer my entire life, it was my major in college, I’ve traveled the country as a promotional rep – I can be extremely above & beyond social; that said, I absolutely HATE it. I avoid using the phone at all costs, practically run home from work and am more than happy going days with no outside interaction. Fiance on the otherhand loves making small talk, is super duper friendly and goes stir-crazy if he’s by himself too long. IF I do get the itch to be social, I STRONGLY PREFER having ppl over to my place. I like the comfort & familiarity of my own things and surroundings=)

My Fiance is definitely a social butterfly no matter the situation. For me, I’m only social around people I know, otherwise, I rather be a homebody… It takes a few outings for me to warm up to someone. More if my Fiance knows them and I don’t, and less if we both don’t know them.

My Fiance is very quiet and shy, I on the other hand love making friends and hanging out, we dont hang out much but when we do, I am the one socializing and he is the quiet one. We mostly love to hang out at home and watch movies, we are VERY selfish with our quality time

@corgitales- your Fiance sounds just like mine.. 😉

He is way more social than I am. I guess I am social, but mainly because I’m in social situations because of him. Seriously though, while we were in college we couldn’t go anywhere without him knowing someone. It was ridiculous and became a joke because we couldn’t even walk into the grocery store or something. Plus, even though I worked in the same place as him I was pretty much known as “Ryan’s fiance” the whole time. It really doesn’t bother me, I’m happy with my tight knit small group of friends and don’t feel the need to have a million.
I know just how you feel about the privacy fence! Darling Husband probably would want to keep the see through metal fence in order to socialize with the neighbors if not for the fact that we’re worried our dog will one day just jump over it. So in this case I’m pumped to get the tall privacy fence 🙂
