So you meet a new person that you might be interested in, but they’re more of a social butterfly than you. If that’s not your natural personality type, extroverts can seem overwhelming and hard to cope with. But all is not lost! Introverts and extroverts can totally make it work, as long as they “get” where the other is coming from. Just like there are things to know before dating an introvert that will make the relationship easier, there are also things you should understand about extroverts if you want things to go smoothly as possible.
- Their social calendars are pretty impressive. Extroverts just aren’t the type to sit at home if there’s fun to be had elsewhere. They make plans to make sure they have things to do down the road. Some introverts might be overwhelmed, but because they aren’t clingy, it can be a good thing! Sometimes extroverts have no problem going out alone.
- Being outgoing doesn’t mean they’re flirtatious. Extroverts know how to turn on the charm to make social events smoother. Others might assume they’re flirting, but unless they’re truly the flirtatious type, then take it as them being friendly and tone down the jealousy.
- They always have awesome date ideas. Going out often and talking to lots of different people has its perks! Extroverts tend to know what’s going on, and where there are good places to eat and hang out. Dating one will get you through your relationship bucket list in no time!
- Conversation with them never gets dull. Introverts sometimes need help in this department, and having a conversation with an extrovert can be just what they need. Extroverts get energy from conversation, so they really know how to keep things interesting. This is definitely a plus when it comes to first dates.
- When something is wrong, they’ll let you know about. Some would call it confrontational, but extroverts tend to be honest about their feelings and let them out. This prevents a stalemate happening if the other person tends to hold things in. It also helps communication continue in the relationship, so don’t get intimidated.
- They’re really into social media. Since they’re all about being up on what’s going on and connecting, be prepared for them to be really in tune with their feed. It could be a negative thing if they have absolutely no filter, or if they’re just completely obsessed with it, but generally, it can be fun that they’ve always got the gossip.
- Get ready to meet all the people they care about (and then some). Relationships usually have that period where couples disappear because they want to spend all of their time just with each other. Extroverts, however, crave a bigger group, so be prepared to meet more people earlier than expected. It could be off-putting to an introvert, but take it as a compliment!
