How To Deal With An Introvert Guy

How To Deal With An Introvert Guy

Don’t let the title alarm you. You might be the introvert guy, and you might not know how to deal with yourself!

Or you might be the parter to an introvert guy.

Honestly, you might not even be aware if you are or are not an introvert guy, or the partner to one.

First thing’s first. What is an introvert guy?

  1. Your guy likes to be alone
  2. Your guy doesn’t like to be in large crowds
  3. Your guy likes to observe, rather than be “the main character”
  4. Your guy does a lot of daydreaming

These are just a few of the characteristics of an introvert guy. Introverts have a lot more going on inside their minds than just being “shy.”

This is why it can be tough for the introvert guy. One may think the introverted guy is not masculine. Or is weak. But this is just not the case.

We’ve all heard of the “strong, silent type.” Guess what?

Introverted guy.

Guys may not be quick to identify themselves as an introvert, as they might think it’s not an acceptable trait for a man. They might be ashamed or embarrassed.

We’re not here to tell anyone how or what to feel. It is important to support positive mental well-being when deciding how to handle an introvert guy.

So What Do We Do?

  1. Focus on one-to-one communication
  2. Always give your introverted guy time to respond
  3. Maintain good listening skills
  4. Never be afraid of silence in a conversation
  5. Do not try to change him

The last one on the list is very important.

For years, decades, I “forced” myself to do things that would thrust me out of my comfort zone in order to more align with being an extrovert.

That wrecked me. I lived my life thinking something was wrong with me. My thinking was that if I lived my life as in introvert, I would never be successful.

Instead, I kept chasing things I thought I “should” be chasing.

But it never worked. I never succeeded going down the extrovert path. It just wasn’t who I was.

I failed to realize that it was, in fact, ok to be me.

Make sure your introvert guy knows it’s ok to be him! Just be sure you know how to deal with an introvert guy.
