List Rules Guys - vote up the reason you most like dating quiet girls.

Quiet but strong, quiet but complicated, quiet but passionate - all traits of powerful women (not women who are afraid to speak their minds). Just because a girl is quiet doesn't mean she doesn't have opinions, and it doesn't mean she won't fight to the death for you. It's our theory that quiet but not shy girls are some of the best types of girls. Here are a few reasons why.

She knows how to treat others


The way to treat someone is with respect and with balance. If you are hogging the conversation, it is hard to be on your side. But this is the kind of girl who knows, whether through nature or through nurture or through both, that people should always have the chance to speak their mind. Rather than seeing this as weakness, people should see this as a sign of respect. Nobody deserves to be interrupted and nobody deserves to be talked over. She understands and recognizes both of these things, and she walks the walk (even if she doesn't loudly talk the talk).

She fights for the things important to her


A quiet girl stands up for what she believes in - without fail and without hesitation. She's not hot-headed about it, nor is she in your face, but she won't back down when she's standing up for the stuff she believes in.

She doesn't try to make it all about her


One unattractive quality in a girl, or any human being on planet earth, is someone who hogs the spotlight. You know these people in your social circles: it's always about them, it's never about you, and it's never about the group. But a quiet girl doesn't need the boost to her ego to draw all of the attention out of the room or emotionally drain the people around her. Self-centeredness can often result in over-talking, which is hardly attractive to guys who are looking for someone to spend their time (let alone their lives) with.

She absorbs and listens


Rather than just blurting something out at random and without consideration, a quiet girl actually absorbs what she's hearing. She is listening to you, she is listening to her surroundings, and above all, she is listening to herself.
