Facing the everyday challenges of the world and being an introvert at the same time doesn’t always go hand in hand.

Some introverts even have a hard time talking with coffee shop employees telling them necessary things what kind of coffee they like to have. So, you can easily imagine how much pressure an introverted man or a woman has to deal with while on first dates. Yes, it's a hot mess.

If you want people to be close to you, physically and emotionally, you’ve to look into their eyes.
- Being Terse
Introverts have no problems when it comes to having lengthy, engaging conversations with people they already know. When the moment arrives to talk to new people and if these new people want to have sex with them, it can be an absolute nightmare. It can make them feel overwhelmed, and their brain activity comes to a standstill and tongue-tied. But, bear in mind, saying very little on the first date on any other date will make your date that you aren't interested. If you aren't interested, it’s okay, but don’t end the date, and continue talking.
If you're an introvert looking for a relationship, make yourself aware of how you can respond in a moment. If someone told you that your anxiety and shyness make you appear bored, it’s not a good idea to go somewhere else and make people think you’re engaged. Laughing at not-so-funny jokes doesn’t make you seem engaged and happy. They, in fact, make you look insane. If you feel worried that your introvert nature is making you look flat and uninteresting, just remember to smile a little more than usual.
