How to talk to introverts so it doesn’t feel forced

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Many people will want to get together over the summer, which can be fun. But, some who are introverts may not be as comfortable in large groups of people. Now, we want to talk about ways that you can chat with someone who is an introvert.
