Introversion

Last weekend when I was at my girlfriend's house, her housemate's friend insisted on meeting me. Upon shaking hands, he said something to the effect of "yay now we can all be friends and be social (he is also gay)." Um...no.

I can't help but think this was some misguided attempt to "rescue" the quiet people who never leave their room. What utter bullshit. It's as though being perfectly content to spend your time with limited company is somehow wrong. I'm sure this guy is and was a fairly nice and well meaning person, but if he was attempting to "rescue" us, then he was behaving like a complete and utter asshole. "Being quiet isn't a part of your personality, it's a defect! Come fix it!" Fuck that guy.
