It has been noted that introverts are quite compatible with extroverts because one of them is able to meet the social norms as required. Whatever the situation be – you being an introvert searching for a date or you being an extrovert coming across a profile of an introvert that attracts you, you need to know certain dos and don’ts of introvert dating.
Although you might feel it difficult to date an introverted person, you get to know them better with time, and you will figure out that they are the best of people to be with. Here are some tips to help you date an introvert better. If you follow these properly, you are bound to have a smooth relationship with your introverted partner.
1. Small talk comes with a reason
Introverts hate small talk. They believe in the concept of coming straight to the point. They value clear, crisp conversation in any relationship that they are into. But, when it comes to dating an introvert, you can not directly start with deep, meaningful conversations, at least not with the ones that concern your life details. They will feel intimated by the information shared and might get deeper into their shell. The crux is to choose your small talk wisely and gradually once they are comfortable, taking the conversation to deep, meaningful topics. All you need to do is to choose your small talk wisely.
2. Plan outings carefully
An introverted adult is not very interested in going out to parties. They tend to sit in a corner or leave the party floor soon if the party is very crowded and are expected to talk to many people. This demands a lot of coming out of their comfort zone for them. To go out with an introvert, you need to plan parties in such a way that they have to interact with a limited number of people, and that too in a small setup. Gradually, you can increase the party size and interact with new people at their convenience.
3. Choose casual outfits
Introverts do not want to dress up very professionally when it comes to going out. To ensure that you do not intimidate them as an introvert’s partner, do not pressure them with the choice of clothes. Wear comfortable clothes and let them also slip into a pair of comfortable clothes. It is said that when an introvert knows nothing about their surroundings, they get the familiarity feeling from the clothes that have been worn. Do not force them to come out of their comfort zone. They are probably already doing a lot to keep the relationship strong and smooth.
4. Keep the spotlight away from them
You might be an extrovert who wants the entire spotlight on themselves, but remember your partner’s preferences also. They are somebody who wants to live their life away from the limelight. Respect their thoughts and give them their space. If there is a gathering or a situation where there would be a lot of spotlight on you or them, give them a heads up. It will help them deal with the situation better without getting awkward. Let them go around and talk to one or two people they are comfortable talking to while you enjoy the attention.
5. Discussion on Conversational topics
As discussed earlier, introverts hate small talk. Owing to this, they do not know what to talk to people in different situations. As their loving partner, you can prepare them with different topics that they can initiate safely with other people. This task need not be done at a particular time. In your own comfort zone, while talking to each other, you can keep slipping some conversational topics in your head. This will give them the confidence that they know something to start a conversation. Social interactions will get easier for them.
6. Objective Questions
‘Yes’ ‘No’ type questions are the best to date an introvert. They will not have to speak much. You will be doing most of the talking. There will be no awkward silences. And it would be a win-win situation for both. When the introvert date of yours starts talking on a topic they find talk worthy, encourage them by asking ‘Yes, and questions to show that you are into them and their talks interest you.
Dating an introvert is not very difficult; a couple of tips can help you steer your boat in the right direction.
If you are an introvert, find a suitable date online. But remember, if the social dating platforms wear you out, get off them. The stress is not worthy. Until you find a partner you like talking to, do not leap into any relationship. Take your own sweet time, just like the way you always have. You will definitely run into someone special where being an introvert or not will matter at all.
