Over on the storied r/askreddit board, something kind of amazing happened recently. It was a simple question with layers of meaning behind it:
These days introvert can mean "shy" or "awkward" or "suffers from crippling social anxiety" depending on the scenario but here it's probably just shorthand for a very common problem. In a world where dating has evolved into this open market of sociable people selling themselves in various public settings, how can you make it work if that's not your ideal environment? Charlatans and gurus have tried to answer these questions for generations, but this thread showcased the real way that couples form in our unpredicatble world that doesn't obey the rules you learn from movies, tv, or advice columns.
If you're feeling lonesome, unlovable, or been hurt in the past just know that the secret isn't some kind of "system" or "phermone tonic", it's about being in the situations where you can meet a person who can appreciate you, and hopefully you can appreciate them right back.
