But just like all the others, something was missing. Finding “the one” isn’t exclusively an introvert problem, but we introverts face certain challenges that extroverts don’t.

Many introverts are intensely interested in meaning. Some of my favorite “dates” were not actually dates at all, but simply times when the stars seemed to align and I made an authentic connection.

Like the time I dragged myself to an extroverted friend’s birthday party at a noisy, crowded dance club (ugggggg) and ended up finding a fellow introvert who also didn’t want to be there.

I know, it’s easier to get away with this tactic when you’re a woman and traditional dating etiquette says the man should make the first move. I’d drive myself crazy trying to work up the courage to walk over to him — and then what would I even say?

Usually any attempts at this ended in me mumbling some small talk, then giving up.

Hi, I’m Sarah Jones, founder and CEO of Introverted Alpha: an oasis for goodhearted men who are analytical and logical by nature: engineers, business owners, honest men who are used to solving problems in a linear way.

Joshua Rogers is an attorney and writer who lives in Washington, D. It’s not that my introverted friends can’t do that, they just find it exhausting, and most of us aren’t at our best when we feel worn down.That can result in setbacks for the introverted man, especially when he engages with women who expect the guy to initiate.But I think introverted men have a tougher row to hoe when it comes to dating.So many of the social settings in which single men are expected to meet women in person are geared toward the outgoing man who doesn’t mind talking to strangers, talking about himself, and basically talking, talking, talking.
