Why Extroverts Suck At Relationships


Jade Masri

They are the life of the party. Everyone loves being around them because they’re fun and adventurous. But before you start dating an Extrovert, look out for these not so charming characteristics.

1) Attention Seeker

Extroverts love attention. When I say love, I mean they seriously need it. Yes, they might be fun and outgoing, but when you’re dating one, it can get quite annoying. Do you really want to be with someone who always wants the spotlight on them? Where’s the privacy?

2) Outspoken

Saying what’s on your mind isn’t a terrible thing, but there is a line that can get crossed. Extroverts don’t care where that line is, nor even see one. They say what they want, when they want and don’t care about anyone’s feelings. If you don’t mind your S.O. saying inappropriate things at Thanksgiving dinner then I guess you can handle it because telling them to mind what they say just won’t cut it.

3) Get Bored Easily

You might want to be careful getting attached to an extrovert. They get bored, and won’t hesitate to dump you for the next “best thing” they see. They are constantly looking for something better than what they have. So make sure you keep this relationship exciting, or else you’ll just be yesterday’s news.

4) Assertive

Being confident is great. Being overly confident and a douche bag isn’t. Extroverts think they are the best at everything. They are hotter, smarter, stronger, you name it, they’ll beat it. They aren’t shy about telling you this as well, in fact, they’re most likely the ones to just bring it up that they are better than you at something. So, if you want to be in the relationship be ready to be owned.

5) Hate being alone

Extroverts need external stimulation, so when they’re alone they don’t really know what to do. I guess you can sum it up to being needy. They’ll need you there, or around them, all the time. Don’t think you’ll be able to go have that “girls night”, or “guy time” because that just won’t work. You need to show them constant love and affection.

6) Crazy energetic

You’ll never see an extrovert leave the party early. They are always full of energy and ready to run. Since they love seeking new experiences and adventures you won’t be having any “lazy Sundays” for a while. There are no lazy days or chill time with them, they just can’t sit still long enough.

7) Opinionated

Extroverts hate being wrong, and I mean hate with a passion. Their opinion is the best opinion, and nothing will make them think otherwise. You won’t be able to debate anything with this S.O. because that just isn’t happening, you’d be there all day trying. The good news is you won’t have to worry about where to eat. The bad part…well it won’t matter if you like it or not.

8) Hollow

Since Extroverts get bored easily and are always looking for the next best thing, they tend to have more acquaintances than friendships. For you relationship that means that you won’t really get that in depth, a passionate closeness that you would in other ones. You really can’t take dating an extrovert too seriously until you can get to the core of the person. Good luck with that, you probably won’t be dating long enough to even try.

It’s never a bad idea to try it out, but be prepared for being dump quicker than you’ve ever been before. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
