Introverts typically find first dates — which are commonly filled with small talk and awkward silences — hella stressful and, basically, not that fun.
Introverts want to get to a deep convo ASAP, but some people might think talking about super serious stuff right away is TMI and could be turned off.
We swiped each other on Tinder, I told him I liked his dimples, and after a few days of nonstop witty texting, we met for drinks at a hipster hangout in the East Village.
The text game and sexual attraction were strong across the airwaves.
Introversion, on the other hand, is about how a person responds to social stimulation—it’s a feature, not a flaw.
But like anything else, there's a learning curve to successful online dating.
Some people still think of online dating as desperate.
I prefer to think of it as determined and proactive.
I wanted to get out immediately and my hometown of Chicago was the only place I could see myself going. I used to get so pissed at my boyfriend for staring blankly into space at parties.
My boyfriend calmly explained that I had a life, relationship, and obligations in New York, and couldn’t just walk away from them without properly considering the outcomes. It seemed rude, like he so clearly wanted nothing to leave.
