Just because your partner has to go out regularly doesn’t mean that he or she doesn’t want to spend time alone with you. Extroverts are hardwired to socialise the same way introverts recharge by staying in.
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:
- 9. Don’t take it personally.
- If you start to feel neglected by your partner, don’t wait until you’re upset and your emotions take over. Talk to your partner and let them know how you feel. During the conversation, ask your partner how he or she feels about what you have said, and then you can proceed to coming up with ways to deal with the issue.

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.
