Secrets of dating a man
Like the time I dragged myself to an extroverted friend’s birthday party at a noisy, crowded dance club (ugggggg) and ended up finding a fellow introvert who also didn’t want to be there.We talked all night, making fun of our drunk friends writhing on the dance floor, and he kissed me when he walked me back to my car.Whether it’s because I can’t control my environment well or the “newness” of it is overstimulating, I’m not sure.But it’s something I’ve always struggled with, even as a kid when I got invited to friends’ sleepovers.Feed our intellectual side, and our hearts will follow.Many introverts, especially highly sensitive introverts, have unique needs that may not make sense to other people.Whether it’s the first date or our ten-year wedding anniversary, we probably won’t broadcast our interest and affection as loudly as extroverts — but that doesn’t mean it’s not there.
At least, not as eloquently as they sounded in our minds. We know it’s on us to make our preferences and needs known.
Usually any attempts at this ended in me mumbling some small talk, then giving up.
