Speaking of issues, sometimes the only way around them is to compromise. Your partner will not miraculously stop being an extrovert, but you can help to assist your partner to understand that he or she needs to take a break lest your relationship will suffer.

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:

    10. Suggest options to distract from the busyness.
    Think of activities that will keep you and your partner busy but won’t wear you out as much as constantly socialising and will help you keep your budget intact. You can play video games every Sunday or adopt a pet that can take their mind off the things that keep them perennially busy.

Your partner may find it hard to adjust in the beginning, but you can help them get used to the changes by simply supporting them and constantly communicating.

Tune in next week for more relationship tips and ideas.

Take the Couple Checkup

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.

For more information on the use and analysis of the Couple Checkup or to simply use the tool, please contact: or call today (02) 9520 4049 #couplecheckup #relationship
