But take a look at these definitions: I see these as different from the need for affiliation.
You could be an extrovert — the life of the party — when you are at a party, but not have a strong need to be at a lot of parties.
That may be the case for people who spend all day in a popular park, Starbucks, Borders, or the library, reading and working.
They talk with very few people, if any, but they just like being around others.
“) If your guy has less need for affiliation — perhaps much less — than you, he will soon tire of scratching your people-contact itch.Are you more likely to read or work in a deserted place, rather than in a public spot with people around?
