They’re comfortable spending time alone.
They won’t need you to shower them in attention every hour of the day. In fact, they will value your time apart. They need space to breathe, so you’ll be able to have your own life, your own friends, your own hobbies. Even though they’ll be happy to share their passions with you, they won’t need you hovering over their shoulder constantly in order to feel loved. They can take care of themselves – and entertain themselves. If you’re too busy to see them one day, it won’t be the end of the world. They’ll understand.
They value quality time spent with their loved ones.
They feel drained after spending too much time with other people, so they make sure the time they spend with their family and friends counts. They aren’t going to be scrolling through their phone while a friend is spilling their heart out. They are going to pay close attention and make the other person feel heard. Introverts make incredible friends and partners because they want to know what’s on your mind. They want to get to know you in a meaningful way. Even though they won’t always be in the mood for a conversation, when they’re ready to talk, they’re going to get deep.
The people in their lives mean a lot to them.
Introverts tend to have a close group of friends because they value quality over quantity. They aren’t always in the mood to go out on the town. If they’re going to accept an invitation out, it’s because they genuinely want to be there. They want to spend time with these people. They want to share stories and laughs. If they can’t stand you, then they aren’t going to waste their energy on you, so if you’re always hanging out, you can rest assured that their feelings for you are genuine.
They are respectful of boundaries.
Introverts can’t stand it when others tease them about their introversion or completely disregard their boundaries. They know the importance of personal space, so they are always going to respect your boundaries. They aren’t going to push you to do anything that makes you uncomfortable because they know how annoying it is when others do the same to them. When you’re dating an introvert, they’re always going to take your feelings into consideration.
They’re more and more interesting the more you get to know them.
Introverts probably won’t spill their entire life story the first time you meet them. The more you get to know them, the more comfortable they’ll feel around you. The longer you’re together and the deeper your bond grows, the more you’ll learn about their hopes, fears, dreams, and personality. They are going to surprise you with how witty and adventurous they are. The more layers you peel away, the more you’ll fall in love with them. They’re full of surprises because they don’t always blurt out what’s on their mind. Some secrets are kept private until they know they can trust you.
