Me vs Sociable People
I will never have the same interests as you do. You will always want to go out into public places where there are plenty of people while I will want to go somewhere quieter such as a mountain trail. While you will be wanting to take me to eat, I will be ordering a pizza from home. While you will be wanting to take me to the mall, I will be out bike riding.
While you and I will have perfectly happy lives always willing to laugh at things, you will never laugh at the same things that I do. What you may find funny, I may not. You will always want to be out in the open where there are cheerful people doing happy go lucky things in groups. In the meantime, I will be a one on one conversation with a friend in private either at home or on the phone. While you are watching the latest television show, I will be playing a game or working on the computer. As you blare music all over the house as you dance while cleaning the house, I will be listening quietly from a corner with something to read.
The Middle Ground
Fret not my sociable friends for there is a middle ground where I will be more than happy to spend time with you. If you need to go somewhere and the distance is quite a ways, I will go along for the ride because I love being on the road. Have something on your mind that you want to talk about? Whether or not I have something to say, I am always willing to listen. I lend you my ear. If you like jokes, then you should be able to make me laugh. If you have a tendency to be a smarty pants, expect me to sass back at you .

We are all different. There is nothing wrong with be more comfortable in small groups.

I'm exactly the same way. I don't enjoy crowds. I don't like shopping. I don't like going to the mall. I don't like going out to eat. I go to work. I go home. That's it.

CountryWine - You know what? This would work well as a singles dating site profile. I bet it would get a lot of replies. It's real, it's personal, and it ends with a realistic but positive conclusion.

Always have hated being around lots of people.

Kudos, you must be an introvert like myself.

Yeah, no. I'm an introvert and I don't do dating sites at all.1

I have friends who have different view points. I like to listen to what they have to say. I like to learn all the time.
