There are times when clashing of a couple’s personalities can’t be resolved between partners alone. If you have a reason to believe that you and your partner’s issues are bordering on being out of control, you can opt to escalate your relationship problems to a professional who can give you proper advice. In any case, it’s still worth trying these ways to show your love for your extrovert partner.
A lot of extroverts are often misunderstood as happy-go-lucky people. But before you decide to join that bandwagon, you have to play fair with your partner and try looking at things from their perspective. Take advantage of the fact that extroverts like to talk, and make sure that you get your point across.
Here’s the thing: making friends with an extrovert is the easy part. However, being in a relationship with one can be a bit taxing especially if you’re the more laidback type and prefer silence. The truth is, while extroverts are generally seen as happy people, they also encounter personality clashes, such as when their partner is more reserved or introverted.
Over the next 10 weeks, we’ll share 10 ways to show your love for your extroverted partner:
- 6. Take part in decision making.
- Another common trait among extroverts is their inclination to try everything and being adventurous. This is a good trait to have on many levels because it means that your partner is willing to do things and relish the experience. However, it can also prevent your extrovert partner from making choices especially under time constraints. In this case, you can take care of yourself by helping them list options according to their priority.
- If, for example you’re going on a trip and sightseeing is on the top of your list, your extrovert mate will surely want to visit as many places as possible. This is where you come in. Work together on your itinerary—from the places you’ll go to and the activities you’ll do—and stick to the schedule. This way you’ll have everything covered, but don’t forget to leave some room for spontaneity.
Tune in next week for more ways to show your love for your extrovert partner.

The Couple Checkup generates deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have about their relationship. These conversations restore insight and understanding about one another. The Couple Checkup can help to revive a relationship and increase intimacy.
The Couple Checkup is an online couple assessment based on the PREPARE/ENRICH couple inventories. The Checkup assessment and Checkup report are designed to go directly to couples at any stage of their relationship (dating, engaged or married). The online system allows for dynamic customization of the assessment to each couple based on how the couple answers background questions. The goal is for the Couple Checkup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
