Online dating can be challenging for introverts. In ‘An introvert’s guide to online dating’, you’ll learn how to make dating work for you!
Introverts report having fewer romantic relationships than extraverts. One of the reasons is because they often take more time in forming meaningful relationships. And they don’t feel as comfortable in social settings where most people meet and fall in love.
That’s why online dating can be a great fit for introverts. Rather than shouting over loud music at a social gathering or bar – an introvert’s nightmare – they can browse potential matches from the comfort of their home. And they can take their time when writing messages to the people they connect with online. Perfect for those of us who like to think and process before we speak or write.
But that doesn’t necessarily make online dating fun or easy. This video is an introvert’s guide to online dating. You’ll learn how to make online dating more enjoyable and less draining.
An Introvert’s Guide to Online Dating
First, let’s define introversion.
According to Susan Cain, the Author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, there’s a big difference between being shy or having social anxiety, and being an introvert.
Susan says, “Shyness is about the fear of social judgment. And introversion is much more about the preference for environments where there’s just a little less going on.”
Introverts get recharged in quiet, while extroverts get recharged in stimulating environments. That’s why introverts can get drained on dates unless they practice self-care.
Four Tips for Introverts
- Manage your time, so you don’t get burned out.
- Take time to recharge after phone calls and dates.
- Don’t be an onion: bring more of your personality to the first few dates.
- Master the art of small talk by making it more meaningful.
