The awkwardness of this aspect tends to affect business partners more than romantic ones, so as long as you two don't end up working together, you might not have much to worry about. And even if it does affect your relationship, it isn't such a big deal, but more of an irritation. A public, social life is a big deal to your lover, but not necessarily to you.
Maybe they have a job that puts them out in the spotlight or requires them to do a lot of networking, marketing, promotion and so on. For you, those things aren't as important, and your whole approach to life on a day-to-day basis might actually be quite different from that sort of lifestyle. Therein lies the irritation. You each might start to feel like the other is insensitive to your needs, because you have conflicting ones. Your partner is trying to create a successful public life for themselves, and they want support and companionship along that road -- but they might find that you're unwilling or just unavailable, and that could be a letdown. You want to go about your daily life in the way that you're used to, the way that you know how, in peace and quiet -- but your lover has all these needs and stipulations all the time! These aren't insurmountable problems, luckily. With good communication and a willingness to compromise on both your parts, you should be able to adjust things to be comfortable for both of you.
