I often write about the importance of getting out of your house and meeting potential dates out in the real world. I encourage you to make eye contact, smile, and say “hi” to men every day. This seemingly simple act is not as easy as it seems, especially for the introverts among us.
According to Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking, one out of every two or three people you know is an introvert. That includes me. I was always the introspective one, the one who shied away from the limelight, the one who whispered the funny lines under my breath while my loud-mouthed extroverted friends would repeat them and get all the credit. After my divorce, I decided that I’d played small long enough. I vowed to push out of my comfort zone on a regular basis. And flirting for introverts is way out of our comfort zone!
