Love is complicated. It is both universal and highly individual. In a way, nobody is an expert on love, and in a way, everybody is. Love is the same for all of us; it must be, or songs about love wouldn't twang such universal chords. But it's also different-how often have you looked at a couple and wondered how they could possibly stay together?
Introversion and extroversion are only two small facets of all that makes us who we are. Each of us is a rich and complex slumgullion of traits and quirks, nature and nurture, hopes and dreams and irritating habits. And, of course, the most basic rules for relationship success are the same for introverts, extroverts, and everyone in between: Communication, compromise, respect. Same with things that lead to relationship failure. The details may change but the general principles are the same for everyone.
So if we know that, why a book just for and about introverts and love?
Well, for one thing, being an introvert can seem at odds with seeking and finding love. We just don't put ourselves out there as much as extroverts; and even when we do, we aren't as quick to make friends of strangers.
"I don't meet as many people as my friends because I generally prefer to stay home and delve into something really stimulating, like reading or video games," says Taylor, a 27-year-old single writer and an introvert. "I also don't tend to mingle too well with people at parties. I do better with friends there with me, and I can 'turn it on' and talk to just about anyone without awkwardness, but I often don't."
Not only that, but when introverts meet someone who sparks their interest, they often are uncomfortable making the first move of any kind. Ray-Mel, a 60-year-old artist and an introvert, says that he was so crushed the times he stepped out of his comfort zone and pursued someone only to be turned down, he decided it wasn't worth the risk. "After a while I just sat back and waited to be approached rather than do the approaching," he says. "That resulted in long inactive periods." (Fortunately, Ray-Mel met the perfect extrovert for him; you'll hear more about that later.)
On top of that, with our limited energy for interaction, where do we even find the juice for the search? How do we meet potential partners when mingling is such a chore for us? How do we stand out when we prefer to hold back?
And are introverts more likely to find love with an extrovert, who will bring sparkle and energy to our lives? Or an introvert, who will cozy up in quiet comfort with us?
You might never have asked yourself these questions explicitly, but they have affected your quest for love all the same.
And it doesn't end there
