5 Tips for Successfully Dating an Introverted Man
There is a difference between a shy person and an introverted person. Before you start dating someone you need to find out if the guy is introverted or just plain shy. Shy people stick to themselves because they have a pretty low self-esteem about themselves and are highly conscious about how they are seen by others. Introverts on the other hand are more complicated and may or may not be confident. They are also the complete opposite of extroverts in it that you never know what they are thinking and many a times you will be confused with the signals they are sending you. If you are dating an introvert or planning to date an introvert, it helps to know them better so you do not have any misunderstanding later on. Here are some tips for successfully dating an introverted guy.
1. Unless you are an introvert too, do not expect the guy to be like you
If you are introverted too or somewhere in the middle, it is fine and you will know more or less what to expect from the guy, but if you are an extrovert and are very outgoing, do not expect the guy to be like you. You will be in for a shock and the dating experience will not be a very pleasant one with you getting disappointed quite often.
2. Prepare yourself for less ostentatious displays of emotion
When you are dating an introverted guy, you should prepare yourself for less ostentatious displays of love, especially public displays of affection. Do not get angry with the guy because he refuses to hold your hands when you are walking in the street or if he refuses to hug you or kiss you in front of other people.
3. Do not confuse his introverted nature with selfishness
You should learn to understand that he is just introverted and not selfish. Some of his actions may come across as being very selfish. He could not meet you just because he feels like being alone. Do not take this as a sign that he loves you less. It is just his nature. Accept him and love him for what he is.
