Every once in a while, I like to give a shoutout to my introverted brothers out there.

This is one of those times.

Dating can be especially challenging for introverts so here are a few tips from some introvert experts:

“Small talk is the bane of most introverts’ existence. Though small talk can feel a bit hollow and superficial, it’s not supposed to be profound; it’s merely a way of connecting with another person. The conversation may or may not go deeper but trying to start a conversation in the deep end can be very risky. It can come off as dumping TMI on the other person.”

            Sophia Dembling, author of Introverts in Love: The Quiet Way to Happily Ever After

“The next time you head out to your favorite coffee shop, don’t be so quick to put in your earphones; Instead, be open to the flurry of conversation around you. Opportunities to get off our phones and truly engage are all around if we take the time to look.”

Jennifer Kahnweiler, author of The Genius of Opposites: How Introverts and Extroverts Achieve Extraordinary Results Together

“It won’t do you any favors to skirt the truth when drafting an online dating profile. If you say you love checking out new clubs and lounges in town, you’re liable to end up at one. Clearly state (with pride) that you are an introvert and don’t be afraid to ask someone if he or she is an introvert.”
