I find myself very conflicted over this question. I prefer to spend my time alone or in quiet group settings. A best friend is someone I don't have to talk to all of the time. So I will admit I sometimes will blow off friends for a week or two before trying to hang out again, I even do this with my roommates (though, in either case, this is not very often in the scheme of things). With this in mind I hear a lot of bullshit talk about friendzones and first impressions being make-or-break with girls. But if it's all true then I have every reason to believe that my personality works against me here. I've tried being a sociable 24/7 kind of person and I eventually burned out and moved away to avoid the whole situation, so changing myself isn't really an option. Which brings me back to my initial question; how does someone like myself find a girl who can deal with the social shortcomings? I think it's awkward to sort of "befriend" someone to get used to their presence and then trying to make a move... any constructive advice/suggestions/discussion would be appreciated.
