I’m Interested In You. That Doesn’t Mean I’m Trying To Have Sex With You.

I want to respond to this, but how, what you say about male and female perception is bang on the money, I started adult life as an exstreme introvert and went for long periods (days.)without saying a word to people, trying to stay out of everyones hair, but now I smile at almost everyone I meet and people openly wonder how I’ve avioded marriage and children and just don’t believe that once I wouldn’t have spoken a word to them, for love nore money.

I have learnt that people expect to be spoken to but wont pay attention if you do and generally aren’t interested, so as an introvert I used it as an excuse not to talk to them. I when I did talk to people, I was a very blunt instrument indeed, though not intentionally.

However in my late 20’s I changed my approach, talking to people with a smile came eventually, still a blunt instrument though, but I marvel at our similar conclusions coming from each end of the social spectrum.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
