  1. It’s taken me a few weeks to come watch this video but I’ve a good reason to watch it today. I have a meet tomorrow so I need all the tips I can get so as to put my best introverted food forward. 🙂

    Thanks for this posts and all the other dating posts. I am a bit of a late bloomer when it comes to dating so I still feel awkward when dating.

    • Ahh don’t feel bad or awkward. I know how it is, after my divorce I felt awkward dating and I’d been married. I’m wishing you much luck in your meet & greet.

  2. I watched it on Youtube. Sound, thoughtful advice. Once I started reading and understanding introversion, and being comfortable with that, I learned to take others’ dating advice with a grain of salt. It’s almost always driven by extroverted behaviors.

    You don’t commonly hear people telling extroverts to employ typically introverted behaviors to enhance their dating prospects, you know? Even if they could benefit from some of them, heh.

    In any case, I feel that my most compatible partner will likely be a fellow introvert. Never say never, but it’s hard for me to imagine being married to/in a LTR an extroverted man. I’ve dated a couple, before I understood myself as an introvert, and we were fundamentally incompatible.

    I also think it’s more acceptable for men to be introverted (goes along with the strong, silent or brooding archetypes that have historically been heralded in America). Women are expected to be social butterflies, always outwardly smiling and engaging, and effervescent. Here’s the thing – I love to laugh and have fun. But depending on the circumstances, you’re not going to see that immediately.

    Also, thanks for making the distinction between introversion and shyness. They are separate things, even if they can be combined at times. And a double Amen to dislike of small talk!

    • I don’t hear that either about extroverts but for some reason extroverts seem to think that’s the way to be and if you’re not something is wrong with you. The more I read and study about introverts, the more I appreciate being one and using what is naturally me to my advantage. My bestie is an extrovert and although we do great as friends, I have no desire to be an extrovert.

  3. I have no idea what happened to the YT videos attached this blog post, every time I try to attach it, it disappears. I’m working on getting it back up but go over to my YT and search the name you’ll find it.
