I bet you have a crush on someone who is quite introverted, or you probably love someone who is so reserved yet; you don’t know how to understand them. Well, there are a couple of ways on how to love an introvert person.
Introverts are quiet, yet they aren’t unapproachable. They prefer being alone, but they love to hang out with a few real people. Many of you might have misunderstood introverts’ behavior, but I tell you, if they dare open that closed door for you … you’re worthy to them.
Now, if you lack patience, it’ll be very hard for you to cope with introverts. They don’t easily open up about something, especially if they are not yet sure about you.
But if you’re here looking for tips on how to love an introvert person, that’s the first best move you just did. Anyway, you can check out the lists below.
1. LET THEM ENJOY THEIR “ME TIME”
Introverts enjoy being alone. You might have misunderstood them for being sad or angry, but actually, they just need some time to recharge. Just let them be, and they’ll surely appreciate you for that.

2. NEVER GO TO CROWDED PLACES WITH THEM
Crowded places drain their energy. It is suffocating to them to be in that situation, especially if their introverted mood is on.
Instead, take them into a relaxing place with you. Have a dinner date at home, or prepare some food and watch a movie together.
Remember that they enjoy simple things with someone they’re comfortable with, and there is no need to be grand.
3. DON’T PUSH THEM TO OPEN UP THINGS FOR YOU
It’s not like they’re trying to hide something from you, or they don’t want to blurt out their opinions and feelings towards you. It’s just that they aren’t ready for it. Understand that respect in silence is the key to have a good relationship with introverts.

4. DON’T MAKE THEM FEEL DIFFERENT
Introverts have boundaries, they don’t talk much, alone time makes them feel happy, crowded places drain their energy, sometimes they have goosebumps when people try to talk to them, they are independent, and they overthink a lot. But they may be different from other people, at least not to someone they treasure.
Remember when you knocked on a closed door and slowly opened that for you, that’s when they know you’re worth a try. So, don’t make them regret it.
5. NEVER TRY TO CHANGE THEM
Understand that people have different personalities. You can’t force someone to change just because they don’t excel at you. Introverts don’t need to prove something about themselves. They are worthy just how quiet they are.
6. DON’T PUT THEM ON AN AWKWARD SITUATIONS
Taking an introvert with you to a party or going out with friends they don’t even know is a bit awkward. Introverts aren’t outgoing, so they prefer to be with people they are comfortable with and not with strangers.
So it’s better to always ask them if they are comfortable or not, they’ll surely cherish you for that.
7. STOP TELLING THEM HOW QUITE THEY ARE
Introverts already know that. So there’s no need for you to say it out loud. You might just end up annoying them or start hating you for mocking them.
What introverts need is someone who will love them just how quiet they are. And not someone who will always remind them that being quiet is a flaw.
8. LET THEM TALK IF THEY WANT TO
Remember that there are moments when they don’t feel like talking to you. Sometimes physical presence is enough for you to know that they truly love you. Words only come from the mouth, while actions tell you how they feel.
9. BOOST THEIR CONFIDENCE
Introverts also feel bad about themselves. It’s not like they hate talking to people; they just don’t have the confidence to approach and start a conversation.
People also misunderstood them as weirdos and nerds. That’s when they start doubting their worth and existence. We all know that it’s never easy to build someone’s self-confidence. So why not just encourage them and appreciate their worth.
10. BE PATIENT AND UNDERSTANDING
Loving an introvert person is like trying to read and understand ugly penmanship. They are very hard to cope with, especially if you lack patience.
If you fail in this #10 tip, you might end up fighting with each other. However, if you are very patient and understand your introvert partner, s/he will do the same thing to you.
Keep in mind that we may have different personalities; respect should always be our top priority. You may be an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert; you are worthy of being loved.
