Most people, and I was no exception, credit numerous stereotypes about introverts.Yes, they are reserved, sometimes strange and hard to understand, but they are people as well.The other night, my boyfriend and I both took the Myers Briggs Personality Test to “find out more about ourselves” because we’re into that kind of thing.
Most people describe dating as a mixed emotional experience filled with excitement and hope, and heightened nerves and insecurities.
If you consider dating to be draining and rough, you are far from alone.
My boyfriend can go to a party, and immediately make friends and feel at ease. When really, you just can’t function without having you time on a regular basis. Every time you guys go to a party together, you end up feeling like your quietness is holding them back from having a great time. No, you don’t want all of your friends to join in on your dinner date.
Even though they insist they don’t mind keeping you company. No, he doesn’t want to stay home on a Saturday night just to chill. In the beginning of your relationship, they thought you weren’t even interested in them.
Truly putting yourself out there, saying yes to dates, and showing up for them may seem like an obligation instead of a hopeful adventure.
When on a first date, the date may feel like nothing more than small talk when really you are looking for something deeper and more meaningful.
Moreover, dating an introverted man can have many advantages.
So, what should you remember when dating someone who’s more withdrawn than you? A different style of communication is the most striking and significant thing about dating an introverted man.
This conversation is perfect for introverts extroverts who want to understand the concept of introversion a bit better, want to learn how introversion affects dating (as a man and as a woman), or want to thrive in a relationship with someone who is introverted.
