This is something that I seem to always notice, especially now in University. Many girls seem to not be able to summon the courage to talk to popular guys, so instead they resort to always talking to the quiet, seemingly shy guys as that I suppose poses a lesser social risk than attempting to talk to the popular guys. As you may have guessed, I'm one of the quieter, more introverted type, and so I seem to always be subjected to this. There'll always be random girls that attempt to either strike up conversation (which I will usually requite since I'm not a mean person), but sometimes they'll go further and attempt to elongate relations (by offering their numbers or by saying something flirtatious.)
I just want to mind my own business, but it seems more girls try to pick up conversations with me than they do with the actual popular/more extroverted guys on campus. This doesn't make sense to me. I really don't like interacting socially, especially not in real-life, and so I want to find a way to avoid this without causing issues with them/appearing mean/confronting them.
Any advice? thanks in advance.
