"See what I mean about the Americans being more E. That sounds far too big for a "small group" to me!!! I'd be running!!"
Right, sorry about that. Yeah it was odd. Me and Gen have chatted for ages over PM's and posts and stuff. We've been through a few tight spots irl and been the one on the other end trying to comfort & entertain. Yet when we met irl it was as if all that stopped and we had to start again.
Of course once my confidence had kicked in and we were having a cuppa by ourselves I started to relax and bring some of the online stuff into the conversation which helped the usual barriers drop. Two introverts from two continents.... it's never really easy. It's surprising the wholes in both our frames of reference.
