In today’s digital age, where more and more people are meeting their match online, online dating actually seems to have swung in a direction that’s beneficial to shy folks. Nowadays online dating can be a shy dater’s best friend. And here’s why…
1. How to start off? Take your time
No matter what, it can be scary meeting someone new. If the idea of talking to a semi-stranger makes you want to hide, let your match know that you want to take your time and get to know them better before you meet. The best part? You can say all of this over text. Because let’s face it, texting is always a little less intimidating.
2. It’s actually pretty low risk out there
With dating apps, you know that you’re not in a committed relationship just yet. So, let them get to know you and even see your silly side! Remember you don’t have to take it too seriously, and in the beginning, you don’t have that much to lose. Getting to know each other online means you can save yourself time by not dating a person who couldn’t handle the amazingness that is the real you.
3. You have a leg up by being shy
Shy people are often less likely to volunteer information about themselves, but this gives you the opportunity to be the one asking questions. While you should certainly try to talk a little about yourself, the fact that you aren’t talking non-stop means your match won’t feel like they’re competing for who gets the most airtime.
4. Remember you can always unmatch
When you’re shy, hard conversations can feel nightmare worthy. What if you don’t feel a good connection and you don’t know how to explain that? Thankfully, online dating can prevent things from getting to that point. When it comes time to meet someone, you’ve probably spoken to them for a while, and have a good idea of whether or not you’re into them.
