How do you do this? Does it take time? Do you fight sometimes?
I wouldn’t say we really argue about it. I guess it’s all about compromising.Once in a while I can convince him to come out with my friends for a drink, while some nights we stay in and just play video games together.
When he agrees to go meet some friends, does the situation become awkward? I mean sometimes when we go meet his friends, i don’t really talk a lot so in the end he doesn’t talk much too
It’s never really awkward. I just try and talk enough to make up for both of us and make sure he’s included in the conversation.
I see. Has any of your friends talked about how quiet he is? Sorry, I’m just curious
I had one of my friends even say my boyfriend was boring... but who cares he’s important to me and my life. No one else said anything about him though, but my boyfriend is Japanese and my friends are American so there’s also a bit of a language barrier which might be why my friends are a little kinder to him about it.
Thank you for your replies. Wishing you both happiness))

Yes. Once. It didn't work for very long.
It's okay to be somewhat different but I read your question as polar opposite personalities.
My boyfriend is an extrovert. Everyone loves him.I’m clearly the opposite and sometimes I feel like it’s a bad idea to stay together
Introverted and extroverted are different than other personality types. You both need to find the happy medium. Extroverted folks should be able to adjust easily... communicate communicate communicate with each other.
Yes and that’s not easy. Especially when your boyfriend is way older than you. We see things differently
What's way older?
He’s 23 years older
Close to my age then... this can get complicated... not sure you want this out in the public space, DM me if you'd like to continue.
What’s the biggest challenge?
Trying to find a balance of how to get along long-term. You probably won't notice early in a relationship the little things that may bother you about the other person because it's still a honeymoon phase. It comes down to maturity, growth and what you really want out of a relationship.
It’s annoying and not respectful Sarcasm
For their safety and sanity I guess they gotta be like me. And for me not going to grow to kind of look down at them (subconsciously/unwillingly) (though not saying that total differences certainly would cause it, but most likely it would be a difference of a kind that would cause it)
Yeah I have a few times, it’s not bad since I’m easy going
But does it really work?
Doesn’t last usually
