About IntrovertedNess

Hi, my name is Vanessa (aka Ness), and I am a 22 year old recent university graduate living in Sydney, Australia.  I created this blog with the intention of sharing my everyday experiences as a introvert, from the comical to the downright frustrating. 

Please follow my blog to show your support!

  1. Hi Vanessa,

    I found your blog through clicking a link on Google today whilst browsing through a series of unrelated Quora questions on life. I enjoy your writing style and I particularly liked your musings of when an introvert goes to an interview and I can still relate to the sufferings of an introvert. I noticed there has been no new posts recently. Please keep writing!

    As a post script, did you succeed in landing that role? Have you improved on your shyness? And what did you study at USyd?

    • Thanks so much, I appreciate it!
      I did get the job, hence why I haven’t had so much time to keep blogging, I should try and get back to it!

      I have improved on my shyness a bit, but it is still a work in progress – although I think it always will be.
      I studied a Bachelor of Arts at USYD, meaning that unfortunately I often didn’t tend to see the same people across classes – which didn’t help my shyness!

  2. Hello Vanessa,
    I’m 19 now and today was the first day of my college. I, too, am an introvert and I’ve never had a boyfriend before for the exact same reasons with you and I cried at my interview exam for the university. Being such a person, I didn’t really participate in today’s games at school, which they made for us to “socialize” and meet. After staying for 2-3 hours, I got bored being around extroverts and returned to home earlier to enjoy solitude. But I did cry on my way home.
    As soon as I was done with high school, which was last year, I left my country to get a better education. I live in Germany now and spent last year learning German for university. Of course, there were many other reasons of why I left, reasons only an introvert can have. For example escaping from my old AKA introvert self, which didn’t work out at all. It’s fine. I have stopped denying who I am but it doesn’t change the fact that I cry where I’m supposed to be hopeful about my future.
    Long story short, I can relate to you and your blog. I hope you continue to write and share your experiences with us.
    Also, when you are too reluctant to go to a big party with many strangers in someone’s person’s house even if it has a magnificent view or sth, just send me an e-mail. 🙂 We can talk. 🙂

  3. Hi vanessa,
    I’m from india, I came to your blog through google. The first post I read from your blog “20 reasons why I’ve never had a boyfriend”, It’s like waiting for that mr right who’s never going to come, believe it or not I can relate to every line you wrote, by the way am a Virgo and an introvert too. it’s so awesome to find out there is another person like me. Would like to see more posts from you in future 🙂

    Good luck

  4. hi! just wanted to let u know i relate to you alot! And whats more we have the same name and horoscope sign. Although im 17 your not having a boyfriend post is very relatable, i feel kinda sad at times too. Last year i had my highschool prom and i wasnt asked and was secretly hoping to be(there was this one guy i really liked but he asked someone else) 😦 literally almost every girl got asked except me and a few “exceptions” ive moved school now and it isnt any better the only difference is there literally isnt anyone i could potentially be with or like even. its not really a major problem for me right now(not having a boyfriend) but it still bugs me at times especially because i hv older siblings who ask me, and my mum even. its just embarassing .also watching the latest movies nowadays (like papertowns for ex). i also feel jealous seeing my other friends who have boyfriends and ultimately i really want that typical teen experience u know

  5. Hello! Not sure if you still use this blog but I’ve just read your posts, particularly the one about never having a boyfriend, and I can relate to you almost 100%. I am a 20 year old and I have never had a boyfriend, never been on a date, and the thought of even having a boyfriend actually petrifies me. Thank you for making me realise that I am not alone! Take care xx
