Caring for My Introvert

I worry, slightly, sometimes - just a little - that my girlfriend's paralysing shyness might put a strain on our relationship.

I don't mind it in the slightest - she's just, well, quiet. But I can see exactly why others may take it as being arrogant, or standoffish.

I've just read a lovely article - Caring for Your Introvert. It kind of explains why sometimes people get her wrong.

"'I'm an introvert. You are a wonderful person and I like you. But now please shush.'"
