So after questioning friendships, and the whole way I live my social life I have found out that I am an introverted person. I feel so happy just knowing that it is a type of personality and that there are many others out there like me, and that I am completely normal, just not in the majority. However my friends don't understand me and how introverts function. They still push me to go out and party with them, I know they can find me boring at times, and I know they think of me as the "no fun guy." When the reality is that I just find fun in different activities than them. I feel like because they don't understand me that they will begin to alienate me as a friend because I don't want to go out with them, and when I do hang out with them I usually only want to stay for no more than a few hours. I feel like it would be weird just straight up telling them I'm an introvert and that they should deal with it. But I think that might be the only way for them to completely accept my personality.

I'm an introvert and I've only had to directly explain it to one friend. She kept pressuring me to go out and I very rarely feel like doing so, so I finally reached my annoyance capacity and told her that I'd rather just be alone, haha. She didn't know what an introvert is, so I had to list all of the traits and talk about how much socializing drains me of energy. She still didn't understand, but at least she stopped bugging me about social events. So if you're tired of either being dragged to parties or having to make up excuses not to go, you should explain it to them.0
