Do you ever get an invitation to a party and think, “Oh, God! Do I have to?” Do you sometimes find it hard to interact with the human race? Would you prefer reading a good book while sipping on some red wine instead of partying it up at the hottest club in town with a large group of friends? If your answer to all the questions is yes then you are most definitely the millennial introvert.
What’s the difference between introverts and extroverts? Well, extroverts are powered by people and socialising. They thrive in an environment where “the more the merrier”, while introverts shy away from such situations. For introverts, meeting new people is not exactly our first choice of something to delve into and it’s not necessarily a bad thing. But when it comes to dating, the entire ordeal might be a tad bit intimidating.
So, if you find yourself a little nervous, here are some dating tips you should take into consideration as an introvert:
Try online dating – If you’re nervous about meeting someone face-to-face, dabble in some online dating or delve into a dating app. That way you don’t even have to leave your bedroom. Introverts are usually great with words but have a hard time expressing it in real life. So, with online dating, you can take your time and figure out what you really want to say without making a fool out of yourself.
Just say yes – This is of course within reason. You can’t expect to find true love in your living room. Sometimes you actually have to make an effort, get dressed up and leave the house to meet new people. You’ll be surprised how exciting and liberating it can feel.
Don’t be nervous – It’s easier said than done but keep in mind that your shyness and mysterious personality is equally attractive. Everyone knows that introverts are great listeners and being around someone with such calmness is such a pleasure.
Get involved – Being an introvert means you’re not a fan of getting involved with social plans, especially if it means being a big crowd. But you might meet your true love if you actually got dressed and went out with your friends.
Know what you want – Most importantly, always know the kind of person you want to end up with and what you strive for in a relationships. This makes the whole dating process a lot easier.
**Most importantly – Be yourself, if a guy doesn’t like you because you’re too shy and think before you speak, then it’s his lost.
