As one such outgoing introvert, I felt this was a rather well done piece of information.

We have mad layers of depth and feelingslike an onion. Or something. I don't know. Just read and get to know what you're getting yourself into before dating us, okay?
1. When we see you after a long day, we might be all irritable and not want to talk

It has nothing to do with you. Outgoing introverts, though still introverts at their core, often need to recharge after a large use of social energy. After a long day of dealing with people, our social batteries are drained and we need to unwind and recover, usually alone.

2. Were charming creatures and can be the life of the party, but...

Youll be surprised how much we actually live in our heads. People often confuse us for extroverts, but we're too introspective and over-think too much to be one.

3. If we like you, we really like you.

We dont waste our time with people were not completely crazy about. If we agreed to go on a date with you, we like you. Take it as a huge compliment.

4. We have times when were weird with our phones.

Some days we can talk for hours, but sometimes were not so good at replying and talking on the phone. Dont take it personally - we screen our phone calls, even from our closest friends. Outgoing introverts sometimes hate the phone because its all, like, intrusive and tears our minds away from whatever were deeply focusing on (and we are always deeply focusing on something). Our mind doesn't change direction easily. Listening to one thing and seeing something else is a lot of sensory input piled on top of everything that's already going on in our heads.

5. But dont worry, in person well listen to you for hours.

We have spectrums of introversion, so were good listeners. Well always be naturally in tune with how youre feeling, so well be able to see through any front you put up and make you jump into the deep end.

6. We need to dip our foot in the pool first.

We need time to warm up, so, like, chill. We tend not to outwardly express our feelings and spill our whole life story in the first hour of meeting you. Or the first year.

7. Our energy level depends on our environment.

Yes, we can get annoyed easily. If we vibe with the crowd, we can get our energy from human interactions. But if we dont, well start to get really introspective and reflective, and tend to withdraw into ourselves. Its kinda like a hit or miss. Were very selectively social. But its not because we dislike people - it's actually the opposite. We dislike the barriers like small talk (which often comes with going out) creates between people, and try to avoid it at all costs.

8. We kinda hate the typical first date.

Maybe its 'cause we hate small talk or something. Over-thinking is like a part of us so at times we enjoy a break from our heads. Be willing to go somewhere authentic where we wont have to awkwardly sit across from each other asking the typical "get to know you" questions.

9. You'll think we are flirty with everyone.

Okay here's the thing, when we inevitably have to interact with people, we make it seem like theres nothing in the world we'd rather be doing. It's 'cause we're, like, overly sensitive and so we go out of our way to make other people feel comfortable and happy. We're intuitive and outgoing at the same time.

10. We can see through bullshit.

So don't try to deceive us. Were kinda like a human lie detector. We will always find out the truth (muhahaha)... just kidding. But for real, we often have a keen eye for detail, noticing things that may escape others around us.

Research has found that introverts pay more attention to detail and exhibit increased brain activity when processing visual information. A study shows that the brain of an introvert weighs internal cues more strongly than external motivational and reward cues. Since outgoing introverts are a unique blend of both an extrovert and introvert, we rely on our own internal instincts and logic to make decisions and form beliefs.

So basically you're screwed. In a good way.
