A typical day for an extrovert is likely to include lots of talking, being with people, or just being busy, but what they might not realise is that they are already too exhausted to function properly.
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.
Following on from last weeks blog, here is another way to show your love for your extroverted partner:
- 8. Invite them to take a break
- Since you’re the person looking in from the outside, observe your partner if he or she is already biting off more than they can chew. And when you think that they are committing to more activities than they can attend to, make the suggestion of taking a break. Instead of going out on a weekend, or worse, working, convince them to get some real rest instead. If they can’t stand not doing anything, you can take on minor home improvement projects such as finally installing that noticeboard in your home office.
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.
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.
