While I was younger, I was always on the lookout for outgoing socialite guys. I was fascinated by men who were looking for the spotlight.
I bet you know the guy. I’m talking about guys who grab everyone’s attention.
I’m talking about guys who are the life of every party; on those who are always surrounded by a group of people – on guys who cannot go unnoticed.
I’m talking about extroverts. I won’t lie to you: I had a lot of fun with each of them. I thought he was my type.
And… then I grew up. I matured and realized that a relationship with a completely opposite guy was what I needed from the start. I realized dating an introvert was better, and here’s why.
1. They are empaths.
Most introverted people know what it feels like to be an outcast. As far as they can remember, they never belonged to any group.
Not only that: they face the lack of understanding of their loved ones on a daily basis and have even suffered some kind of bullying.
The main thing is that their life was never made up of rainbows and unicorns. So whatever you are going through, they get it.
Most introverts are empaths by nature. They are incredibly compassionate because they have the ability to sense the emotions of others.
I know it’s great to have a partner who understands you, but that doesn’t mean you should put all of your emotional weight on their shoulders alone.
Basically, if you are with someone of this personality type, you never have to doubt their feelings. Believe me, an introvert wouldn’t be with you if they didn’t like you.
2. Meaningful emotional relationships only.
Casual business? Relationships without toil? Friends with benefits? Infidelity? Almost relationships? These are all parts of the modern dating world, and most people don’t see anything wrong with that.
Well, introverts do. In fact, they hate modern dating. They won’t judge you for your choices, but that’s not the path an introvert would take.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that they pretend to be prudish. It’s just that introverted people settle for nothing less than a meaningful relationship. They don’t settle for random parties or encounters.
They are all or nothing people. They cannot separate their body from their heart, and neither do they.
If you’re dating an introvert, prepare for a deep connection. There is nothing temporary or superficial about your love affair – I can guarantee that.
3. No worries about being suffocated.
The reason introverts aren’t so crazy about social interactions isn’t just their shyness. Instead, these people like to be alone.
They love their own company and don’t need anyone to make them happy.
Why is this good for a relationship? Because dating an introvert means having enough personal time and space.
Have no fear – they won’t ignore you, and you certainly won’t feel emotionally neglected. However, these people will never suffocate you either.
They are not looking for attention. Instead, they understand that you need your privacy without them encroaching on every part of your life.
You are allowed to live outside of your relationship.
4. They attract their energies inward.
Instead, you’ll get your fair share of arguments, just like any other couple.
Nonetheless, an introvert never chooses unnecessary fights. They don’t sound out of nowhere and they don’t like the theater.
These people draw their energy inward. This means that they always think before they speak and rarely act impulsively.
Introverts are great for keeping a cool head. They are gentle and hardly ever aggressive.
Your struggles with an introvert are never wasted. Instead, they are productive and you always manage to come up with a reasonable solution.
Why? Because all introverts are rational and level-headed, which is a huge plus in all personal relationships.
