If you have feelings for an introvert, here are 12 things you should know before falling for them. Avoid this unless you have a good reason for doing so. And when you do text us, please skip the small talk texts — we hate them. Small talk in person is bad enough.
Again, small talk feels like a punishment to us. We crave depth and conversations that make us truly think.
This is what every introvert craves in a relationship
If you need constant validation or attention every minute of your day, then an introvert might not be your ideal partner. We could take a few hours or a whole day to reply back to your texts or phone calls.
What are your fears? Deepest secrets? How did you get that scar? Where do you see yourself in ten years? These are the questions we like to ask. We want to get to the nitty-gritty of who you are and know everything about you. It has nothing to do with you, and we just need to take all our attention inward.
Please, just be patient. We often keep our feelings inside, because sharing them makes us feel too vulnerable.
Thus, you have to be patient with an introvert, and just offer your love and support. We will open up eventually, as long as you make us feel safe. We prefer quality one-on-one time over hanging out with you in a group.
We really cherish the time you spend with us without any distractions. As introverts, we live inside our he. Our escape could be playing a sport, writing, reading, or listening to music.
We often get lost in our own thoughts. We put in a lot of thought into everything we do. We prefer to take things slowly to understand and get comfortable with the person. But, once we get comfortable with our feelings, there is no going back. Just give us time to get there.
But, we will do our best to make you happy. We may ask you too often if you feel good about the relationship since your happiness is important to us.

We want to know we are doing our part to meet your needs. We have chosen you as one of the few people who see our inner self. We will love you very deeply. Since we love being alone, we are extremely mindful of who we spend time with.
