My boyfriend and I have been together for over five years now and we learned early on just how different we are.
He’s an extreme extrovert who loves going out and hitting loud, crowded spots while I’m an introvert who prefers calm, quiet, and very few people around me.
We always try to give each other’s favorite events a real chance.
