I am an introvert and prefer introverts. I need someone who understands my social needs/lack of. I hate small talk and people trying to force me into situations that I don't want to be in and just not understanding.Last edited by Star-girl; 13-01-2016 at 23:45.

Do introverts/extroverts mix well romantically? I am an introvert and my longest relationship (8 years) was with an extrovert. It was a complete opposites attract situation and very intense at first. I loved his funny, outgoing energy, he found me calming and a bit mysterious at first I think. Over time, as we moved in together, however, it became very stressful. He really couldn't understand why I'd rather stay in with a book/film than go to a party. I always wanted to go home from the pub before him. And so on. I think other couples do make it work, but you have to be very understanding of the differences.
I have recently been dating another introvert and I find spending time with him so much more relaxing. We understand each other a lot more and don't have to explain our little quirks. From the outside I think we must seem like boring couch potatoes, but we get each other. It's really nice!
I know what you mean. I am more of a shy introvert. Going out for a day tires me out and I will need to stay home for a couple of days after just to regain my energy.
That is why I would not be attracted to an extroverted guy. At first, like you said, it would be fun and intense, but after some time, I don't think I would be able to continue and would also get stressed. Our activities would be different and I don't think I could have a serious relationship with him,
hahah you sound like a cute couple. That sounds so much more appealing to me haha. I know sometimes opposite can attract but in the long run, I think you need to have some similarities to each other.
Thanks for your post.

The dynamic works until the introvert decides they want to try being the extrovert for once, I dated an exceptionally shy girl (she literally never talked), months later she went to the pub more than me lol.
I've had social anxiety all my life so I don't think it'll change. If anything I really admire the way he can talk to people so easily (and am slightly envious)
