How to Kill an Introvert

A few days ago, while browsing through 9gag, I stumbled upon the post below... 


While I found it moderately funny, I also noticed how I could relate to it since I'm sort of an introvert myself... In case you're wondering what an introvert is, click here... 

Yes, me iz an introvert... I hate so much going to the barber's to cut my hair because almost all barbers I've encountered would ask me stuff like where do I work, when was the last time I cut my hair, what am I doing at this side of town and etc... I freakin' hate small talks with people who I barely know...

Sometimes, I have to hitch a ride with a person who I'm not close with or sit next to a stranger inside a bus and the whole ride would either be silent or it'll all be about me answering questions from that person... 

I often feel bad when a stranger asks so much about me like I'm the most interesting person in the world just to make a conversation but I don't ask anything about him/her... I just answer and wait for more questions... No more questions?? Thank God! Now I can plug in my earphones and ignore you forever...

Events and gatherings make me feel nervous because there would be so many people I don't or barely know present... I would either stuck to a person I'm close with from start til the end or just sitting alone wondering who to approach and what the heck to say...

Friends or colleagues who are reading this, don't be offended if I don't appear to be friendly to you... It's not you, it's me... This is my nature and I don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings...

Many people asked, "Isn't it frustrating to not talk to anyone?"... Who says I don't talk to anyone?? I always talk to my wife... In fact, I love talking to my wife and I tell her everything... Even my darkest secrets... You might see us not talking to each other but why the hell would I have intimate conversations with my wife in front of you?

I kinda have a split personality (I blame it on being a Gemini) so can be both extroverted an introverted, although usually the former.

Most people will label introverts as "sombong" but they just don't really understand that that's just the way introverts are. Hey, I'm interested to know how you first got to know your wife seeing that you're afraid of conversations. I bet there's an intersting story there!

I met my wife a few years ago at UiTM Lendu... We were taking the same course but not in the same class... I saw her often but never have the nerves to talk to her... Just gave her smiles from far... For one year, we kept exchanging glances, smiling, but never spoke...

I asked her number from my roommate... Texted her often...

The first time we actually talked was during our course's annual dinner...

Yeah... After one and a half years of texting and smiling from far, we talked... and it was sweet... That was the time I decided she's the one...


Maybe I should make an entry about this...
