Tell your extrovert partner when they become overwhelming: 10 Ways to Take Care of Your Extrovert Partner

By Sheila Frye, guest author – Associated Counselors & Psychologists Sydney

Spotting an extrovert in a crowd is the exact opposite of finding a needle in a haystack. More often than not, extroverts are the ones who easily mingle with anyone whether it’s a familiar face or a fresh acquaintance. They know most people in the room—either that or they’re working on it. In some cases, they are the actual life of the party

Here’s the thing: 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 can prefer silence. The truth is, while extroverts are generally seen as happy people, they also encounter personality clashes, such as when their SO is a more reserved one or an introvert.

    4. Tell them when they become overwhelming.

    Being up and about is what an extrovert does that sometimes they get a little too absorbed in their own vigor and tend to overwhelm other people. The thing is, some extroverts don’t notice this effect they have on their peers which puts them at risk of being misunderstood, or worse, offensive.

    One way you can look after your SO, as well as to avert potential confrontations and embarrassment, is by giving them a heads-up. Say, for instance, you’re in a party and your partner tends to go overboard on the teasing. You can squeeze her hand a bit firmer than usual or lightly pinch her left cheek. Be fair to your partner by setting the codes beforehand so that your SO wouldn’t confuse your reaction for something else.

A lot of extroverts are often misunderstood as happy-go-lucky people. But before you decide to join that bandwagon, you have to play fair with your partner and try looking at things from their perspective. Take advantage of the fact that extroverts like to talk, and make sure that you get your point across.

There are times when clashing of a couple’s personalities can’t be resolved between partners alone. If you have a reason to believe that you and your partner’s issues are bordering on being out of control, you can opt to escalate your relationship issues to a professional who can give you proper advice. In any case, it’s still worth trying these ways to show your love for your extrovert partner.
