Introverted teens require less social stimulation and appear to be more comfortable than their more outgoing extroverted peers with being alone. I say let's celebrate both personality types and stop making the assumption that introverts are at a distinct disadvantage.
For Trevor it was the culmination of years of a growing awareness of his sexual orientation. While he had experienced boyhood crushes on other boys, he always had a girl on his arm and had never dated a man.
