Dating tips for introverts will help
Rather than toughing it out but secretly feeling uncomfortable and therefore not representing your best self, try communicating what it is that is particularly difficult for you, e.g., “This place has a lot going on and it’s hard to talk.” This is when a bit of practice comes in handy.Asserting introverted needs in an extroverted space is uncomfortable—at least at first—but by identifying what you need to be fulfilled, you can begin asking for or making these needs known in less high-stakes situations than your next date.Remember that extroverts get energy from being around people, and while introverts arguably make better conversationalists, they are depleted by constant social interaction.If you’re questioning whether it’s worth meeting someone in person (a blind date or online date, for instance), then schedule a phone call. Avoid burnout at the outset by being both choosy and true to yourself. Use this to your advantage and ask questions that are geared to determining whether your date is the right fit for you. For introverts living in an extroversion-dominant society, the dating pool can be even more difficult to navigate.

Sure, most introverts prefer depth over breadth when it comes to relationships.Yet I'll speak here from personal experience: most of the people I’ve developed great connections with have been on the extroverted side of the spectrum.
