'Me-time' Syndrome

Currently reading this book, and Evangeline Canterbury's character was like the portrayal of myself, but mine is extended not just in relationships, but also towards family and friends too. Reserved.

Excerpt:

“I know you’re busy, darling. But surely nobody is too busy for love.”

“It’s not that. I may be…I may be incapable of a real relationship.”

“That’s ridiculous.” Zelda huffed. Then, less certainly: “Isn’t it?”

I kept reaching into the dishwasher. Glasses, mugs, silverware returned to their designated places—anything to prevent me from actually squirming with discomfort. “I don’t like to be asked questions. I don’t like having to talk about things I don’t want to talk about. I’d rather be alone than open myself up to be poked and prodded.”

Thomas, Sherry. “The One in My Heart.”
