1. Meet People Online
Unlike those who are outgoing, introverts tend to be nervous during face-to-face conversations with strangers. They express themselves better in writing than in talking. In this case, meeting people online seems to be a more feasible way. You can start by creating a profile for yourself on websites and apps to attract other people. At the same time, you can look for users who share similar interests with you and try to initiate conversations. Of course, for your safety’s concern, remember not to post private information like your address and phone number, and don’t meet the potential partner in person until you feel totally comfortable.
2. Be Open to Rejections
A lot of introverted guys are afraid of dating others because of the possibility of rejection. This mindset has to be changed. It’s completely normal to be rejected when approaching people. Perhaps he or she doesn’t match well with you, and there might be a better match for you. What you should do is to learn from the rejections. For example, when you are rejected due to being untidy, you could regard it as motivation to keep your clothes and hair clean. You can actually improve yourself through the rejections.
3. Get Well-prepared for the Dates
As the saying goes, “Good preparation is half the battle.” If you get anxious before the dates, being prepared beforehand seems to be a good idea. You can experiment with the dating scene with your friend. Practice conversations and eye contact. If you are not sure what to talk about during the date, prepare some topics that could arouse his or her interest in advance. You can try to imagine the response and let the conversation go further.
