My dh is an introvert and I am an extrovert. We are clashing like crazy. I'm talkative and out going and he is quiet and withdrawn. Our relationship Is fizzling out. We do love each other so we are trying to make it work. when we argue, I want to talk about it to work it out so I don't go to bed mad, and he wants to be left alone and tall about it in the morning, but I can't sleep if we don't resolve our differences. I am on mobile so sorry if this is all rambled together.
Anyone have any advice on how introverts and extroverts can have a loving relationship?

Thanks ladies!

Ps. I ended my friendship with the drama queen, no more drama besides daily life!

I wish I had answers for you but I'm in the same boat except I'm the introvert and he's the extrovert. We are 100% opposites in EVERY way. It can be very frustrating for sure.

I'm an ex, dh is more of an in but neither of us like talking about feelings. Lol.

Try writing him a letter. You get it out and he can read it in the morning.

 In any marriage you have to give and take. He should be able to at least talk to you about his feelings. You are his wife after all.

Have you read the book The Five Love Languages?

This is like my dh and I but me being outgoing makes up for him not being as outgoing!
