Quote of the Week: Jan. 12

introverts love

Introverts aren’t really comfortable with grand love gestures—skywriting at the baseball game, an elaborate public proposal at a restaurant. (Smacks terrifyingly close to having a whole restaurant full of people sing Happy Birthday to You. Shudder.) You’re not likely to meet an introverted Bridezilla—being the center of attention just isn’t that important to us. The things that make us feel loved and special aren’t big and flashy; they just have to hit the note that gives us a warm tingle.
