Relationships usually involve two people dealing with different character traits. Sometimes the difference may not be that great. Sometimes, the difference between two people may be like the Grand Canyon. But surprisingly, love and relationships can blossom both ways. It is how people deal with the differences in their relationship that allows them to stay together.
Some people tend to be attracted to certain types when they are dating. Some people prefer the outgoing types because they are quite fun to be with. But introverts also have their ideal traits that some people appreciate. Here are just some of them.
They are better at building meaningful connections.
It is a myth that introverts shun social connections. They actually like to meet with other people, but not on the level of extroverts. Introverts prefer more meaningful and deeper connections with people they like. It is not about having the most friends. In relationships, introverts are better at connecting with someone they like because they learn to cherish it. Introverts put more value in the people they try to establish a bond with, they do not take it for granted.
They listen better to what you say.
Some women complain that their boyfriends or even husbands do not really listen to what they want to say. So do a bunch of other guys. Introverts are better at listening because they are more appreciative of what the other person has to say. They value equality and make sure that they understand a partner, especially what he or she has in mind.
Introverts are better at caring for a relationship.
Introverts are more known for being more introspective. They are also known for their self-awareness. They think before making any action. That is what makes them better in taking care of relationships. Extroverts are more likely to take action before thinking, which may be a cause for many mistakes in a relationship.
They own up to their mistakes and correct them.
Self-reflection is another trait that many introverts are better at. They are adept in looking into themselves and analyzing their actions and its possible consequences. This can trickle down to introverts being better at seeing their own mistakes. Introverts are more likely to own up to what they did wrong and try to correct them before they cause any more damage to the relationship. Extroverts may take time to realize what mistakes they may be making. Sometimes, it is not until the mistakes have done the most damage that realization may kick in.
