“Opposites attract”, as the saying goes, but can an introvert-extrovert relationship really work?

I say it can and there are plenty of couples out there who would back me up; they’ve made it work!

The key difference between the two types:

  • Introverts get their energy from being alone
  • Extroverts get their energy from being with others

Can you see how these differences might cause issues in a relationship?

The extrovert wants to go out.  The introvert wants to stay in.

Making it work requires patience, openness and good communication.

But here’s what’s really going on – a relationship between opposites is an exercise in acceptance.

And isn’t that what being in a relationship is all about?

Loving the other person even when they do stuff you don’t like?

And what better way to learn acceptance than to be in a relationship with someone who is literally your opposite?

A relationship between an introvert and extrovert can absolutely work.

What’s more, it has the potential to make you a more rounded person.

I’ve read a few articles on this topic, complete with couple interviews.  The most common feedback given by both people?

“Being with him/her made me a better person”

Give it a try.

Being in an introvert-extravert relationship might be the most fulfilling thing you do.
