List Rules Dating tips for introverted people

Dating can be difficult for a lot of people, but for an introvert dating can be especially tough. What are the best dating tips for introverts? This is a list of specific tips that can help an introvert navigate the world of dating. Dating shouldn't be scary, it should be fun. 

Though often misunderstood, introverts are often categorized as being quiet, shy, and even having a social disorder, but this isn't necessarily true at all. In fact, you may have a hard time distinguishing whether or not someone is introverted when you're in a one-on-one dating situation, as introverts thrive in smaller groups.

Introverts feel drained in large groups or in party settings, which can often make them appear antisocial. They tend to be more introspective and thoughtful, with a constant inner monologue and can often be easily distracted.

Introverts need time to process things on their own and enjoy spending time alone, but when they meet someone they connect with, they can be great friends and and can create strong relationships. Introverts are naturally reserved and can easily become overpowered by an extrovert, but that doesn't mean they are only seeking introverts to date. The key is finding a balance, communicating with each other, and listening to your gut.
