This Is Why Introverts Make The Best Friends

Priscilla Du Preez

Well listen to you attentively .

In a world that cant stop talking, its refreshing to have somebody in their own lives who is genuinely interested in what you have to say. Well listen without interrupting, and well what youve said long after today because were awesome like that.

Well keep all of your secrets .

Us introverts will always respect your personal boundaries and be 100% genuine in our actions and terms. Were not the gossipy type because we have zero interest in small talk and getting attention.

Well always respect your opinion even if we disagree .

One of the reasons why we listen so intently is because were interested in your unique perspective on things, so that we can try to understand where youre coming from.

Youll feel altogether at ease and valued sharing your thoughts with us because were willing and open to hear them.

Our words carry deep meaning .

Introverts filter and think carefully before they speak, whereas extroverts are great at attaining things up as they go along, mindlessly ejaculating things out.

This means youre guaranteed to find depth, balance and a lot of wisdom in our terms. When we do speak its because we have something important and valuable to say, which means we also give some of the BEST advice.

Were not needy .

We would never demand that you spend time with us because were perfectly content spending day on our own in fact, we need that precious alone time often.

Youll have the BEST nights in with us .

We wont ever magistrate you if you want to skip that party tonight to do something low key instead, and only hang out together at home( likely with pizza ).

But were also the best person to party with .

We dont crave being the centre of attention, so its all yours for the taking.

When were in the right mood to socialise, well be a tonne of fun to party with too.

And whenever youre ready to bounce, well be ready to go with you. Opportunities are wed been wanting to leave hours ago anyway

Well teach you to be more independent .

Our love for alone time is bound to rub off on you eventually. Soon youll be dining out for one, taking solo vacation trips to explore the world, and learning to deeply enjoy your own company.

In a nutshell, well help you see how fabulous you are.

Were unbelievably loyal .

It takes us a while before we feel comfortable with anybody new, which entails our friendship will have built up and strengthened over many years. But once we choose we like you, well have your back for

Well always have period for you .

As introverts, were happier with a small group of trusted friends rather than hundreds of people were only kinda sorta friendly with. This means that theres plenty of room in our schedules to hang out with you whenever youre in need we promise to always be there for you come rain or shine.
