On other Internet forum I frequent, there’s some jackass taking potshots at introverts, and his latest missive hits home–do introverts fear intimacy? This one is of particular import to me, after having been accused of being distant and aloof and blah blah blah.
I do not fear intimacy.
I do not fear the closeness of being with a partner. Of surrendering.
My natural cautiousness is mistaken for that fear or lack.
I’ll put it to you this way–I like jumping into pools where I know there’s water in them.
Then I’m all in.
