We all know that introverts can sometimes be hard to get to know. But once you give them a chance, they can be great people! Introverts are often more sensitive and less prone to stress than extroverts. They also prefer smaller groups or one-on-one conversations and find it easier to talk about their feelings and passions in these situations.
Check out 10 reasons your introverted partner is great and why they’re worth the extra attention!
Introverts are often more sensitive than extroverts.
Introverts are often more sensitive than extroverts. When you’re around your partner, they are calm and collected. They don’t wear their heart on their sleeve, but they’re always there for you if you need them.
Introverted people are deep thinkers, and they find it easier to process their emotions when they’re in a setting where they can be alone with their thoughts for a little while. When you go on holiday together, you’ll see your introverted partner’s true colors.
They don’t like big crowds or lots of noise, but that doesn’t mean they won’t have fun. Introverts are often quite good at making the best out of any situation, so you might be surprised by how fun your holiday turns out to be!
Introverts enjoy spending time alone because they gain energy from being by themselves.
Introversion is often misunderstood as being anti-social or withdrawn, but the truth is that introverts enjoy spending time alone because they gain energy from being by themselves. The quiet nature of introverts makes them shy, but their reflective personalities make them deep thinkers.
Being an introvert does not necessarily mean being socially awkward or having very few friends – it just means that you appreciate peace and quiet more than noise and stimulation.
For introverts, talking to large groups of people can be exhausting, and spending time with just one or two friends is usually preferred. People may think it’s strange that introverts seem quiet and socially reserved, but the truth is that their inner world comes alive when they’re on their own – it’s where they find peace and solitude.
Introverted people can be fascinating if you take the time to get to know them!
Introverted people can be really interesting if you take the time to get to know them! They may not be very chatty or open at first, but they will start opening up slowly once they feel comfortable in the relationship.
Their lack of desire for big crowds can often help introverts avoid unnecessary drama and conflict. Introverts are more likely to see all sides of an issue before taking a stance – which is why other people sometimes turn to introverts when they have problems that need sorting out. Introverted people are deep thinkers, so just like their friends, they’ll always listen to what others have to say without judgment before giving their own opinions.
Introverted people tend to have rich inner worlds, and they like to keep these worlds to themselves. Introverts will probably not share their ideas and thoughts with you at the beginning of a relationship, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have them!
Your Introvert partner will understand what you’re feeling without you having to say anything, which is why they are so good at being supportive.
Introverts have a strong sense of self, which makes them understanding partners who can really listen rather than just hear what’s being said. They prefer not to speak about themselves often, but it will be sincere and well-thought-out when they do.
Introverts are not big fans of talking for the sake of it – they prefer to express themselves through actions rather than words. Introverted people are less likely to immediately try and solve your problems because they are excellent listeners who want to understand what motivates you before giving advice, which can often make them great partners.
Introverted people are good at noticing the littlest things that happen in everyday life, like when your favorite song is playing on the radio or deciding to wear a particular top. They will understand the small things you do, which most people wouldn’t even notice!
Your Introvert partner will know exactly what to do in any situation because even though they aren’t good at small talk – they are excellent listeners. They can easily navigate a social setting without making it evident that they feel uncomfortable and awkward. Introverts may not be the best conversationalists (unless they are talking about their interests), but the conversations that they do have are likely to be more meaningful.
Introverts are valued for their honesty, realistic outlook on life, and ability to listen without judgment. They may not talk much, but when they do, it’s worth listening because everything has been thought out before being spoken.
They’re quieter when speaking, so you won’t be overwhelmed by their voice.
When they speak about their opinions and ideas, they will be calm and collected, without drama. Their in-depth knowledge and insights into different topics will surely impress you!
Introverts are passionate when talking about things that interest them – whether serious or completely random. Introverted people aren’t bothered by other people’s opinions of them because they know who they are and remain true to themselves. They don’t want to waste time making superficial connections with everyone around them, which means that the relationships that they do form will be strong and meaningful.
They think before they speak or act.
Before an introvert speaks or acts on something, everything is considered, so there is no need to worry about impulsive decisions made out of desperation or passion. Introverts will only do something if they truly believe in it!
When an introvert does open up to you and let their guard down, this is a sign that they trust and respect you as a person. Your conversations will be more considered, making the time spent listening exciting and rewarding. They certainly won’t bore you with pointless information – just thoughtful insights into their inner world.
Your partner will always have something interesting to say during a conversation because introverted people tend to think about what’s happening around them and how different people feel before talking about themselves.
Introverts enjoy spending time alone and may not be interested in hanging out every evening after work/uni/school, but remember to give them some space! They value meaningful connections with small friends rather than many acquaintances. Introverts think before they act and feel, which means that they dislike people who jump on the bandwagon and try to impress others at all costs.
They don’t interrupt you when you’re speaking.
They don’t ignore you. They don’t tell you that you’re wrong. And they do not speak over you, shut you down, or silence you.
They listen to you, carefully considering what it is that you have to say. They ask questions, probing more about your opinions and ideas. And they avoid dominating the conversation, allowing plenty of room for your words to be heard.
They don’t try to change the subject. They don’t derail the discussion. And they don’t walk away from you or log-off, muting or blocking you so that they no longer have to hear what it is that you have to say.
Their introverted energy is calming and grounding for your more outgoing personality.
They draw you into your center, creating a peaceful balance between the two of you. By enjoying your presence, they help you slow down and enjoy life a bit more. You feel supported in being the light and cheerful, enthusiastic person you are!
You will never feel overwhelmed or in a state of anxiety when hanging out with this person. Your energy will boost theirs and vice-versa, making both of you more productive and focused when it comes to making plans together.
You can be your true self without feeling judged or criticized, allowing you to relax and let loose every once in a while. And this person will always be there for you when your mood changes, no judgment passed! Their calm demeanor will never cause tension in the relationship.
Your introverted partner isn’t interested in controlling your behavior.
They trust you to handle areas of your own life on your terms. Rather than offering their opinion constantly, they wait for you to ask what it is that they think. They know how to hold back, giving you space to make up your mind about things without any pressure from them or anyone else.
You can disagree with them without feeling like you’re arguing or fighting. They don’t make it obvious when they disagree with something that you’ve said, and in fact, they probably won’t say anything at all. But if you ask them what their opinion is, they will give you a thoughtful response and not be afraid to state the facts calmly and rationally.
They accept your flaws, knowing that you can’t be perfect all the time. And while they don’t let things slide when it matters, they won’t judge or criticize you for making mistakes.
They’ll help you finish your projects if you get stuck on something.
But they won’t complete it for you, as they know that the final product will be better if it’s your own work.
They will help you by giving suggestions or asking questions that will help you find the answer. They aren’t interested in doing things for you unless it’s something they enjoy. They are more than happy to give you advice, but they don’t feel the need to take on your responsibilities or complete tasks that belong solely to you!
You can relax entirely around them. You don’t feel like there’s a need to watch what is coming out of your mouth all the time because the things that they say and do aren’t going to offend anyone.
