Is there an "imbalance" in our relationship?

Home More advice Love & Relationships

First off, I'm a rather solitary introvert. I don't get along too well with people, I don't enjoy conversing much (am pretty bad at it to be honest), I usually prefer to be alone. My boyfriend on the other hand is quite outgoing, has quite a few friends, talkative when he wants to be. We're pretty opposite when it come to this.

Lately it's been bothering me, this difference. He has friends that he will go out with, he'll bring me along sometimes too. He doesn't mind it, I don't mind it, his friends are pretty nice, at least around me. In turn, I don't really have anyone besides my sister really. I never minded this til recently. We've been together, 5 years this anniversary and it has never bothered me til recently.

I can't really put a finger on it as to why it is bothering me so much. Don't get me wrong, I don't crave socializing with other people, I don't crave the company of other people. I'm perfectly happy being alone or with him. For some reason, I've been feeling like there is an imbalance here and it will turn things sour. It's not even jealousy on my part, at least I don't think. It's been upsetting me, I can't even figure out why myself.
