I saw this disheartening headline the other day: “Only Half of Friendships are Mutual, Researchers Find“. If you’re someone like myself, who feels they don’t have many friends, the take away is that other people don’t have that many friends either. At least, not as many as they think. In fact, if you break down the numbers, you have fewer “fake friends” than them.
I propose that we introverts hold a party to celebrate! We can all stand against the wall and avoid making eye contact.
