Introvert Dating 101: Your Road to Forever
Dating is does not come easy for everyone. But it is especially challenging for introverts who have limited social energy.
According to experts, here are some of the best advice that they can give to introverts who want to find someone.
Be open to small talk
Introverts are not a fan of small talk. They'd rather go straight to the point. Small talk does not aim to contain all of life's meaning. It does not aim to go deep. However, this is a good way to connect with another person. If you start a conversation deep, you may give out too much information and the conversation might be awkward.
When you go to a coffee shop, don't plug your headphones right away. Try to project the aura that you are approachable. Who knows, a random conversation may end up with a date.
Try to party
Make an effort to attend gatherings. Not going to party invitations or sitting at the corner will not help you meet someone. While it is understandable that introverts aren't excited at big parties, make it a point to meet a few people and strike up some small talk.
Introverts are better in writing than in conversation. You may join a forum or an online group that has the same interests as yours. The Internet can be an avenue to talk to others and connect.
Be comfortable in your own skin. Do not create a persona of who you want to be. Instead, be yourself. You can only keep up pretensions for a while, but you cannot do that forever.
If you don't put yourself out there, how will potential dates find out about your existence? So make an effort and meet others.
