Dating for Introverts

January 4, 2007

Found this great article at Salon about introverts dating introverts. It makes so much sense. And explains why I almost loathe even the idea of dating. I would rather have a root canal (and I’ve had three of them) than make small talk with someone just for the sake of making small talk. I have a very good male friend right now and I realized when things really clicked for us (not in that way, but sort of — it’s confusing). It was when we stopped talking and were just silent — drinking coffee, driving in a car, etc. When the silences weren’t uncomfortable, I knew this was someone special in my life. I think that’s how introverts know something is going to work.
