I started this group because I only recently learned that it's OK to be an introvert. Up to one half of us are, and it's a perfectly natural and valuable personality type. That may not be news to everyone, but it came as a revelation to me. Introverts are not antisocial, but we are differently social. Do you prefer a relaxed atmosphere over a noisy, raucous one; coffee shops over bars and clubs? Do you dislike small talk, but enjoy substantive conversations? Would you choose a museum over a sporting even; a poetry reading or singer-songwriter over a hard rock concert? If you don't want to have to pass as an extrovert in order to have a social life, this group is for you. I will try to schedule events and activities that will appeal to thoughtful, laid-back people, and every member of the group will be invited to do the same. My hope is that solid friendships may come out of this.
