Two introverts dating

But strangely, I'm more interested in this guy than I've been with anyone in awhile.

I get overstimulated very quickly, and my mind would just go numb with the amount of talking - and with his ongoing schedule of activities and events.

Both of my parents punished me with silence (for days on end), so the only time lulls are an issue for me is during unresolved conflict. I used to be highly attracted to extroverts - maybe because they did all the talking and socializing so I didn't have to.

Could usually tell then if there was interest in pursuing (on both sides) any further. With this guy, we've been on several dates now (7 or 8? We seem to really like each other and there's definitely physical chemistry.

But we've both remarked on the fact that there are often silences between us - sometimes slightly awkward.

Getting out of our own heads (where introverted people tend to live! It does seem to slowly be getting more comfortable....still, I find after about 3 hours together, we're done (in terms of conversation I mean).

Perhaps we need to start "doing" more together as opposed to just dinner/drinks where you're in a position to constantly feel the need for conversation.Of course, there's also the issue that we've both recently come out of our marriages (him a year, me just a few months). I haven't quite determined his introversion on a scale yet.He does seem to go out a lot - one-on-one with friends - or just does his own thing.I cant tell you how many times I wanted to just crawl under the table because of his constant and embarrassing talk and bullsh! Actually he made note of them in an email to me after our 4th date or so saying "we're both quiet people and sometimes our encounters feel a bit awkward, yet we still seem to make it work". He pointed it out, but still wanted to see me again, so I guess I should take that as a good sign! Keep in mind, he's a good looking guy in his late 30s with a lot going for him.Its not like he's desperate and hanging on to me because there is no one else.Part of it may be me being out of the dating pool for so long...him too, for that matter.Nerves and thinking too much about what to say next or how to sound interesting, instead of really listening to the other person and using follow up questions.He did tell me the thought of going into a room full of strangers where he's expected to mix and mingle makes him quite anxious. Are you sure its the silences that are awkward, and not just each of you projecting that silences are SUPPOSED to be awkward?I know that sounds dumb, but since you are both introverts (same here! Like, you are sitting there worrying that HE thinks its a bad thing, but then HE is thinking the same thing from HIS side.....action_button.action_button:active.action_button:hover.action_button:focus.action_button:hover.action_button:focus .count.action_button:hover .count.action_button:focus .count:before.action_button:hover .count:before.u-margin-left--sm.u-flex.u-flex-auto.u-flex-none.bullet.
