When we think of introverts we often think of these shadows hiding in the corner never speaking, and that’s if they make it out of the house. But that’s not at all accurate. Bing an introvert just means you channel energy differently. Instead of feeding on the energy of the others and the outside world, an introvert looks within. This is why they prefer their home space where their energy is sacred and away from being overstimulated by others. They’re quite introspective, deep, and reflective making them ideal partners.
The only problem is putting themselves out there to meet the right person. Here are the biggest struggles in dating from an introvert’s perspective.
I Like To Stay Home Because The Outside World Is Over Stimulating
Stop telling me to put myself out there and go on a date. It’s not that I don’t want to, but the second I step outside of the house I can’t wait to go back home. I love my own personal space. I’ve taken the time to make my home feel like my safe space. My limit for stimulation is not that high so for me to go meet someone I don’t even know yet drains my social battery and makes me uncomfortable.
I suddenly feel hyper-aware of my own thoughts and they take over and they start hindering my speech. I freeze. Then I shut down. This has happened before and I always worry about it happening again.
