The comment about being introverted is puzzling me too. I don’t see the connection between having an introverted personality type and having a problem sharing details with your boyfriend about your daily life. Maybe you weren’t saying you’re introverted as an explanation for that, but rather an explanation for why he should trust you because you aren’t out and about with people much?

But in a normal serious relationship I think people do tell each other what they’re doing and with who. Like, I’m going to see my mom, or I have to go for drinks with my team Tuesday night, or I’m taking a client out for dinner. Thats normal. If you’re not sharing those details with your boyfriend, it’s NOT because of your personality. It’s because something is off… like, you don’t want to get into it with him and it feels better to not talk about what you’re doing. Or you simply don’t have the kind of serious committed relationship where it even seems to make sense to share details about your day. It’s *somwthing.* but it’s not about being an introvert I don’t think. I think he’s made you feel like there’s something wrong with you. You talk about this like it’s all your problem. It’s not.
