What was it like... Was it challenging at times
Most Helpful Girl
I am the reserved person who's been dated. It was something of a problem, especially because in the past I always had a hard time showing affection.
For anyone dating a reserved person: just be patient, and know that the little things they do (holding your hand, sending you a random text in the middle of the night saying 'I love you', whatever) are the equivalent of them making a huge romantic gesture. It's frustrating for sure, but give us a chance to open up! And tell them honestly about it if it's getting to be a problem, but don't condescend them or tell them to "just be more open." Communication is SO vital.0
