Dating means putting yourself out there, meeting new people and putting effort into getting to know those people in the hope of making a solid connection.If you’re the type of person who feels drained after being social and you need a lot of alone time to recharge, dating can be absolutely exhausting.No matter how much you want it, you probably won’t be compatible with someone who has to be super social all the time, but there’s really nothing you can do about that.
Introverts simply engage with the world in very different ways than extroverts do.
Respect your date's need for alone time, and avoid jumping to conclusions about what that means.
This is completely normal behavior for a loner, and it doesn't mean he's not enjoying himself.
He may get a lot of pleasure simply from observing what's going on at the party.
According to Sophia Dembling, in "Seven Things Extroverts Should Know About Introverts (and Vice Versa)," for Psychology Today, the need for alone time shouldn't be taken personally. She needs time out now and again, to be alone or simply recharge her batteries.
Likewise, don't worry that she's not enjoying herself when she's with you, just because she's not acting like the life and soul of the party. An introvert is more likely to stay away from the crowd, and value one-to-one conversations over large group discussions.You still do it because you truly don’t want to end up alone, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a struggle sometimes. Since you probably don’t go on dates very often, when you do decide to go on one, it’s a big deal.You probably spend a lot of time getting ready while dealing with the always present internal struggle of whether or not you should just cancel.You don’t even really care if they believe you or not most of the time either.Some people just don’t understand your need for space.But that certainly doesn’t mean you need to see him every day or be in each other’s presence 24/7. Sometimes you’re enjoying your time to yourself so much that you don’t even really mind that you haven’t seen him in a week. Like you actually have a hard time functioning when you’ve had to spend a long period of time socializing.
