14 Introverts Reveal How They Met Their Forever Person

If you’re an introvert, it can be hard to connect with new people. However, you can still find love! To prove it, here are some stories about introverts who found their true love:

“I met my husband on Xbox Live (Halo 3) almost ten years ago. Been married for six years now.” — TY_SM

“Tinder. His picture was him hanging upside down from a tree and his bio said, ‘Proof that nerds grow on trees.” We both made it clear we were looking for a relationship, met up the day we matched for coffee, hit it off, and that was that.” — zlae

“Volunteered in Thailand to work with elephants. I was one of only two guys with 18 girls (volunteering is very often dominated by compassionate, smart women, especially if it involves animals). My girlfriend is an absolutely beautiful, amazing girl that is now a vet student. We are completely in love. I recommend volunteering to anyone, and especially to people who are depressed and lonely. It is rewarding and if you’re not a shit person, you will meet amazing people and​ have amazing experiences.”  — sqectre

“We’re both introverts, but I definitely can force myself to be bold. I was a waitress at a restaurant he came into. He asked to borrow my pen, I told him, ‘Only if you write down your number.’ Sometimes introvert guys need a girl who is not afraid to make the first move. We’ve been together almost 14 years now.” — KlvrDissident

“I met my husband while I was shopping. I spent a good six weeks buying incredibly overpriced avocados from the shop he works at and then added him on FB (through the shop’s FB page, minor stalker alert here) and just asked him out. And here we are, a year later, married. Bonus, The avocados are now free.” — NZ-Food-Girl

“I told her, ‘If I weren’t so socially inept, I’d be trying to have a conversation with you.’ Married almost 9 years.” — Moni3

“Female introvert here who met my boyfriend on World of Warcraft. I never went on there looking for anybody, I just wanted to play, but it happened and I’m glad we met each other. He moved to my country, found a job, and I moved in with him.” — -NN-

“Blind date. That was 10 years ago. The guy who set us up dropped off the face of the earth before I ever had a chance to thank him.” — AllGarbage

“At work. She’s very persistent, and finally convinced me to go see a movie together. It’s a good place for introverts, really. It’s dark, you can only see your SO and the person sitting next to you. Accidental popcorn grab hand touch here and there.” — JDogg_of_RS

“We’re both introverts, and as a result, it took a little while for us to actually become romantically involved – a little while being seven years. She and I met when we were both eleven, when we were put together to compete in a music competition as a duet (we’re both cellists). I had a little eleven-year-old crush on her straight away, and she had the same thing for me. Neither of us ever told the other about our feelings for years, instead talking to our friends about it and then getting into other relationships and forgetting about each other for a while. Eventually, after I broke up with my girlfriend of 3 years, I asked my now SO if she wanted to catch up and play some music together. We saw each other for a few weeks in a row, and then, after seven years of on and off feelings for each other, we became a thing, and I am happier than I’ve ever been.” — KingOfBurrito

“Got very drunk and lost my inhibitions.” — BandinisBandana

“I was living in a duplex with some friends. One day I decided to take one of my roommates’ dog for a walk, which I never usually did. Shortly after leaving the house I was stopped by a girl who asked, ‘Don’t I know you from somewhere?’ I had never seen her before, but it was enough to start the small talk. She helped me walk the dog around the block and we were basically inseparable from that point on. WHAT MY INTROVERT SELF FAILED TO NOTICE AT THE TIME: She had been ‘stalking’ me for weeks, trying to get me to notice her. Walking her own dog past my house, riding her bike next to my car, waiting for me to get home from work when I would unknowingly street park in front of her house where she would be ‘doing yard work.’ She succeeded by catching me walking that dog which, remember, I NEVER EVER DID, it was fate I guess. 6 months after meeting her I moved out of the duplex and 5 houses down the street. Married 16 years now.” — Kalfu73

“Met my boyfriend on Reddit.” — mischko98

“I went to parties. I’m not only introverted but also have really bad social anxiety. But I did my best to put myself out there. It’s true that if you’re just stuck in your house all the time, then you can’t just expect some girl to come to you. That’s not unfair, it’s simply reality and you have to go by life’s rules. Of course there are exceptions but for the most of us, we have to put in work. It’s not as hard as you guys think either. There are a lot of introverted girls that go to parties, clubs, bars, school events (huge opportunity) sitting alone on their phones. And the good part is, once you’ve swooped the girl, you guys can both be introverted together and never be bothered to go out ever again if you really want to.” — Earlgreysaxophone
