It’s an unspoken truth that our society is geared more towards the outgoing among us; being able to mingle and hop from conversation to conversation or group to group like a social butterfly on crank is a valued skill when it comes to in-person social networking.People who tend to make the most noise and attract the most visibility also tend to be the ones who get the most attention… But just because you’re more introverted doesn’t mean that you’re doomed to a life alone. Sometimes it just means having to change your dating strategy to play to your strengths.Still waters run deep, after all and there’s no reason why you can’t make that work for you.A little bit of mystery and a reputation for being observant and clever – if a little reserved – can work wonders.Taking a class, whether it be studying a new language, brushing up on an old hobby or trying a new activity like yoga is a great way to meet new and interesting people in a low-pressure, low-stress environment.A shared goal or activity gives you something you can talk about and relate to right off the bat.An introvert is – very simply – someone who’s personal energy (physical as well as mental) tends to be drained by social interaction and recharged through more solitary pursuits.
But what if you’re the sort of person who’s drained by crowds or just doesn’t having to introduce themselves and have to make the same small-talk over and over again?
Now, in fairness, online dating have to make the initial attempt to talk to someone (especially if you’re a guy) and there’s a certain level of expected “getting to know you” chit-chat.
However, if you’re someone who prefers to take his or her time about getting to know someone, online dating is a way to meet people.
not to mention find people you’re likely to actually connect with.
You’re not going to dig for oil in a city street So where do you start looking?
The first and seemingly most daunting challenge for an introvert is: where are the best places to meet people?
