  • Dating may seem impossible at times especially if you're not used to putting yourself out there.

  • It's scary when you have to worry about putting your heart on the line .

  • Not only that, but it's a lot of hard work and time investment.

  • You've discovered that even though you're actively dating, you're still on the search for a meaningful connection with someone.

  • Here are five ways to find true love if you're an introvert and hate dating.

  • One, go to events and places that reflect your favorite hobbies and interests.

  • Forget hitting the bar or club to meet people, if that's not where you feel like you can be your natural self.

  • Meeting new people that you can potentially get to know over time requires a certain sense of self confidence.

  • By going to events and places that harbor your hobbies and interests,

  • it'll be easier for you to strike up conversations based on similarities, alleviating some of the stress introverts face when it comes to small talk.

  • Two, be prepared to go through trial-and-error.

  • Love isn't a fairy tale and while you may hate the superficial aspects of dating, you certainly can't go through it without getting your heart broken a few times or breaking someone else's.

  • There's always a lesson to be learned in the world of dating.

  • For instance, you might be used to internalizing your thoughts and feelings as an introvert,

  • but while dating you'll learn to get better at communicating with your partner and even though that might be difficult at times, it isn't impossible.

  • Three, have honest conversations.

  • Don't be afraid to show who you are right from the beginning.

  • As an introvert, you value authenticity and depth anyway.

  • If you want to skip out on trying to impress others, be honest.

  • Have the difficult conversations.

  • Ask them if they know where the both of you are headed.

  • See if the two of you actually have chemistry, but also communicate that you're willing to make things work.

  • If you're serious about dating, you shouldn't have to worry about waiting for a certain amount of time to pass before responding back to text messages or coming off as desperate or clingy.

  • To like someone is to still choose to be with them even on their worst days.

  • Four, only make time for people you're really interested in.

  • Don't date someone because they seem impressive on paper, or if there's someone your parents and friends will approve of.

  • Ask yourself what you really want in a partner,

  • and only make time to meet up with people who you truly believe you are compatible with.

  • At the end of the day, you're the one dating that person, not anyone else.

  • As an introvert, you most likely don't like creating conflict.

  • And rejecting those you don't think you can have a relationship with, it'll help you be one step closer to finding the right match.

  • Additionally, don't settle just because you're afraid to be alone.

  • Five, keep an open mind.

  • This includes dating extroverts who operate in a different way.

  • Who's to say dating someone who's your opposite can't work out?

  • The key word is compromise.

  • As long as you and your partner respect each other's boundaries, there's no real reason as to why things can't work out, even if misunderstandings may arise from time to time.

  • That's normal in any relationship.
