Introverts have it tough. Like for real, not only do we have trouble expressing our emotions as loudly as others, we are often subjected to ridiculous questions and situations which we then need to handle with tact. Ugh. Well, in case you have always wondered whether that sorta shy (but really an introvert) friend of yours really means what she says, you’ve come to the right place! Here are 13 things introverts say...and what we really mean!
1. “Of course you can stay the night!”
What we really mean: “Oh, I will have to cancel my plans to binge watch FRIENDS but sure, I can be a nice and accommodating host!”
2. “Who all are going?”
What we really mean: “I need to know how many people I don’t know will be there so that I can mentally prepare myself for this evening.”
3. “It’s cool, I’ll eat it anyway.”
What we really mean: “They screwed up my order but I’ll eat this anyway because I really can't have a detailed conversation about this with the staff.”
