Soooo I moved into my apt for school today and have 3 roommates. So far they seem really nice, but we haven’t really clicked. They all know each other, and I don’t know any of them so it’s sort of feels…awkward. I’m also pretty introverted–not shy or socially anxious, but being around people a lot drains my energy after awhile.
So I guess…how do you survive with roommates as an introvert? I don’t want them to think I’m rude or unfriendly but sometimes I don’t feel like talking, and sometimes I want to be alone. I’ve met all of them and chatted with each a little bit and we talked about how we might decorate our apt, but that’s pretty much it. They all hang out together and I would rather hang out by myself (for now) since I don’t know them well and I’m super exhausted from this past wk.
