Anti-Social / Ambivert?

Dear Dayre,

Looove my lashes heh! More photos in daylight like I promised 😁 And even a video ✨

I think the colored extensions are really very cool! Love the pop of color it adds to my eyes. Look at this close-up! And as usual the lashes are so fluttery and natural-looking (except for the colored bits la..)

Love how they look like from side view.

✨👀✨

Lash extensions always make me feel instantly prettier haha.

Ok last photo!

At an event now but I'm feeling anti-social cos I don't know any-freaking-body so I'm just sitting in a corner chilling. Enjoying the nice breeze by the poolside! (Pool side event)

Honestly I find it very tiring to socialize and network sometimes when you don't know anyone at all it is sooooooo awkward.

Especially when everyone else looks very young and hipster lol sorry I old liao.

Although I'm pretty outgoing and friendly, I like being by myself and doing my own thing. Like I can just stay at home when I have nothing to do and still enjoy my own company. Sometimes I prefer it to hanging out with other people too.

Don't know if my friends will scoff at that cos I'm actually very sociable despite what I just said and they like to joke about my "PR smile" that I turn on whenever I'm outside lolllll.

What can I say, it's part of the job! I do genuinely enjoy meeting new people and talking to different people, but it does exhaust me at times and I don't feel that I'm a natural at PR.

Unlike some of my girlfriends who can turn on their charm like a switch and can socialize no matter where they are or who they're with.

It always amazes me to see them in action and when I'm with these gfs it's easier for me to open up and socialize with new people too.

But when I'm alone (like now) I rather be in my own world and be a wallflower in the corner.

So if you ever encounter me alone at an event or on the streets please don't mind my resting bitch face because I'm just awkward and anti-social at times.

But if you come and say hi to me, I am actually a friendly person!!!

Anyone who feels the same way I do too?
I think the term for people like me and you is "ambivert".

Yes, it definitely depends.

I found a buzzfeed article on 21 signs of an ambivert and it is soooo on point! Sharing some of the points that made me nod fervently in agreement.

1. When you’re out in the world, you’re probably not going to be starting conversations with strangers.

I tend to keep to myself when I'm alone. Confirm won't go around initiating conversation unless something sparks it off.

2. Generally, you’re always happy to meet new people, but you’ll probably be uncomfortable if you have to do it without any of your existing friends with you.

*nods* Exactly what I just said above!!!

3. Small talk is something that annoys you, because while you can do it, there are instances when it feels a bit insincere.

YESSSSSS MAKING SMALL TALK IS SO TOUGH. I feel damn fake sometimes you know? But some people are so sincere and genuine in making small talk that I feel guilty about feeling not-so-interested in small talking to them.

4. So in the right context, you love attention, but more often than not, you don’t want to be the person everyone is looking at.

Yuppppp I totally agree. People always think I love the limelight because I'm so outspoken and seemingly fearless in front of people, but it really depends on the situation and occasion. I'd much rather be chilling in a corner than in the centre of attention sometimes! It's just too much work and too exhausting.

But bo bian, sometimes still need to do it!

Limelight isn't always for me!

But random trivia.. I used to be the Company Leader of my secondary school Girl Guides company! Lollll.

Sounds lame when I mention it now but it was extremely cool okay being the leader of an entire CCA!

I know people think Girl Guides are damn lame and gu niang but I really enjoyed it leh. I found it meaningful and I like doing all the outdoorsy stuff and I enjoyed leading the company.

In that sense I'm very much a Leo cos they say Leos are natural leaders with a flair for directing others. (But in other aspects I don't think I'm that Leo-like because I'm not very bossy or proud but maybe I'm wrong)

In fact I enjoyed it so much I joined the Scouts (It's different from Girl Guides, you get to wear the green Scout uniform) when I was 16! Fun times.

That very tanned person in green Scout uniform is me 😂

5. You have a tendency to balance out whoever you’re with – if you’re with someone loud, you’ll be quieter. If they’re quiet, you’ll compensate for that.

Totally feel this one as I think it happens to me a lot hahaha if I'm with someone who talks very little I'll try to talk to them more to get them to feel comfortable BUT if I'm with someone who is already talking a lot usually I become less vocal.

I cannot stand it if I'm with someone very quiet and then we both just very quiet because awkward much. 😓 But if my companions have a lot to say, I'll just listen first and only pipe up if I have something relevant to share.

So if you can’t figure out whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, maybe it’s because you’re actually an ambivert!

Ambiverts of the world unite!
