    If you want to fit in, you have to talk to people. Seems obvious, but for introverts and loners, it's not. Pick a number between three and ten and commit to speaking to that number of people at every service - and not all the same ones every time!

    People oddly enough are probably 'respecting' your space - they misinterpret 'shy' or 'introvert' as 'doesn't want to be bothered'.

    I am pretty much an introvert. I have never had a problem feeling at home with fellow believers. Carrying on a conversation is another thing altogether.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    That is good. Some introverts may have coexisting issues that aggravate their overall sense of unease (e.g. depression, social anxiety).
