Introvert (noun): Introverts tend to be preoccupied with their own thoughts and feelings and minimize their contact with other people.
It’s not always easy to spot an introvert, because every once in a while they poke their heads from their shells and rejoin society. They act like going out in a crowd of people is a good time and that they always enjoy outings to the bar or a concert when really they only need social interaction like that once or twice a month.
Introverts date, flirt, converse, etc. differently than most people.
One reason for this is because introverts don’t really mind being alone. They appreciate their own thoughts and pick apart their emotions. If you were to date an introvert, giving them their alone time is key. Of course they want to spend time with you – mostly just chilling on the couch watching a movie or taking a walk in the park alone – but they also need time to digest their own feelings and self.
The way an introvert flirts is entirely different from an extrovert. Everything is subtle – for instance, an introvert will choose to glance and smile rather than come up to you with a big hello. They will also choose to get to know you over social media or texting, because it is easier to get comfortable with each other before meeting face to face. Introverts would LOVE having someone nearby that they are close with on a first date, just to squash any awkwardness.
Eventually, your introvert will not be so introverted at all. They just take more time than the average person to display all of their emotions and thoughts.
