I met someone who had many of the same traits that I do. I felt very comfortable around this person even though I didn't know her for very long. She made me aware that there are reasons for why I feel the way I do in certain social situations. For the first time in my life, I realize there are other people that feel the way that I do about busy crowded areas, over socialization, busy loud work environments etc. . .
I have never read any of her books.
Work environments are difficult for me when to much activity, noise or people in close proximity to myself. I tend to need time away and alone following over socialization. I have always found it very difficult to go to crowded places like fairs, amusement parks, movie theaters . . . any place that are crowded really. Ironically any job I've ever had has always put me in these uncomfortable situations.
I do like comedy. Standup comedy shows I can usually enjoy. I do like dinners out . . . Good food as long as not overcrowded or really loud . . . Screaming kids and the like
All of the things listed sound really great. But I suppose the most important thing to me would be just knowing people and doing activities with people that feel similar to the way that I do and understand.
My name is Matt. I have lived in the Seattle area my whole life. I have always known I'm a bit more of an introvert than most and always wondered why.
