Can an extrovert dating an introvert
For example, every time he needs to book a trip for work, he verbalizes every pro and con, out loud, before he decides which flight to take. If I was an extrovert like my husband, we would 1) be totally broke, and 2) I’m not sure we would ever actually be able to complete a conversation.When I need to make a decision, I think it through and process it internally. I have realized he actually does think clearer and process information better when he vocalizes thoughts. Not only that, he loves to invite groups of people from different walks of life to the same social gathering (even though they may not personally know each other). This is not to say two extroverts can’t have a great relationship, but it wouldn’t work for us.All superficial communication feels like punishment. But if you're down for absorbing conversations and giving space when space is needed, you'll find your relationship with your introverted partner a deeply fulfilling and long-lasting one. I’m not a shy or quiet person, but I do get energized by being alone.As all of the "Get to Know Your Introvert" posts have outlined, introverts get their energy from within, while extroverts get their energy from other people. Showing real, genuine interest in what we say and do, and remembering details from conversations we had weeks ago will blow our minds. It's not that we don't like going out — we love it!
This is how we form lasting bonds with others: one-on-one and through personally meaningful conversation. Just don't be surprised if we're on the other end giving the phone side-eye and waiting for it to go to voicemail. If you need constant validation for every minor day-to-day achievement, we might not make good partners.
I loved that album you told me about.” Practice patience.
Because our tolerance for mental stimulation is lower than that of other personality types, if we’re unexpectedly caught in a noisy, crowded, or chaotic situation, we can have trouble functioning.
But I didn’t realize just how introverted I was until I met my husband. Then I realized, nope, that’s actually just how he lived life. I feel sheer panic when I think about being stuck in a place with people for a long period of time and not being able to escape into solitary.
He loves to be around people, he is energized by people, he is often the life of the party, he doesn’t mind crowds (my personal hell) and just doesn’t seem to get emotionally exhausted from human beings like I do. I am not a great wife, friend, daughter, anything, when I don’t get alone time.
As a result, an introvert can become self-conscious.
