Nice, Diane. I have been married to another introvert for many years now, so this guide isn’t necessary for us, but I recognize many parts from previous relationships. One thing I might add: don’t try to “fix” your introvert. (Yes, some extroverts believe introvert behavior can be fixed. Like a bad habit, or not knowing how to use the proper fork.) Best case, it won’t work and the relationship will break up; worst case, your introvert will become slightly (?) psychotic temporarily. (I think it was temporary — maybe just in remission?)
