College life is all about fun and social activities, but not for everybody. While being around people charges extraverts, introverts get their energy from within. Communication with other people often drains them.
What’s certain though, these girls and guys seem shy and likable, and it’s not hard to fall for them. If you are an extravert yourself, it might be a little tough to understand an introvert and build a relationship with him or her.
So take the following facts as your guide to the world of introverts, which will help you to build a true partnership with them.
They don’t hate people. Introverts rather like them, but not all of them at once.
It’s hard for them to be first to break the ice. This is the reason introverts do not date that often and are less sexually experienced.
It’s not because they don’t care about you. They just hate phone calls. As simple as that.
This doesn’t mean they’re not that into you. They aren’t used to showing their affection.
Silence isn’t necessarily awkward, you know.
They treat small talk like a meaningless and unnecessary act of politeness. There other ways to be polite with people.
They like exchanging ideas, talking about feelings and real-life problems and joys. They’ll expect the same from you.
They give a lot of personal energy to communicate with other human beings. They have to recharge from time to time.
Introverts can sense lots of things that are happening around them. If you are withholding something from them, they will know it. Be certain: while they are not talking, they are thinking and analyzing.
And believe us, introverts can be fun!
Being asked out on a short notice is not their thing. They need to get prepared to everything. They have probably made plans for the evening anyway. To watch a movie or read a book to a glass of wine.
They like privacy and want to have you to themselves, but not to accidental glances of those fifty passers-by.
They’ll rather leave and spend some time on their own. You’d better learn to read their body language.
It’s a biological trait, so don’t try to change them. They will not force you become introverts either. Just don’t even try to convert them into loving big companies. Pointless.
When you prove that you’re trustworthy, your introverted sweetheart will feel safe around you. You better be ready to see more of their true funny flirty selves!
