Red face How Do You Do?

Good Evening, Everybody!

I am new here (DUH!); a NYC Native; middle-aged (Already! WAAAH!), and an INFJ Introvert.

I have a load of stuff going on that's got me on a Friends and Family Forum, including an abusive primary relationship, complete and total estrangement from my own family and no friends whatsoever.

I am looking for a place to vent, to meet kindred spirits, to get objective opinions about stuff, and maybe even to help others.

(I like to bicycle, cook, craft, and work crossword puzzles.)

Re: How Do You Do?

Welcome!

I am an INTJ. The internet is rumored to be a refuge for us introverts.

Hiya, Lucy!

Thank you for the welcome.

That introversion has me poised even in virtual doorways just waiting for any reason to flee in terror.

"T" is for "Thinking," right?

LOL regarding the refuge. Seriously had not thought of it that way DUH.

(I wonder why I didn't get a notice that you'd answered me. . . )

Re: How Do You Do?

T is for thinking. There have been several studies about Introverts on the internet. It's a perfect match!

I don't know why you didn't get a notice as I have "do not subscribe" for all threads. What do you have checked?

"Instant Email Notification" is what it says. (It also doesn't allow me to apply formatting, or maybe I should say that I haven't yet figured out how to get it to work.)

It is, indeed, a perfect match!

Hi, Snafu!

I was a bottle blonde from my teens until May 2015, which is the last time I colored it, and, in spite of being unusually tall (five-ten), I get ignored in SPADES all the time.

I know for what "snafu" is supposedly an acronym , but how'd you decide to use it as a screen name?

We have "issues" at our little forum. The formatting doesn't work. We were supposed to do an update a while ago, but there were so many issues with it that we just stayed with the old one.

It's not perfect, but it's "home."
