Some people still think of online dating as desperate. I prefer to think of it as determined and proactive. You're taking matters into your own hands rather than waiting for someone to drift into your life. And let's face it, as introverts, we're not all that excited about meeting new people out in the real world either. Might as well see who's out there in cyberspace. At least they can't corner you and talk your head off.
In some ways, online dating is a perfect match for introverts. We tend to be good at expressing ourselves in writing and many of us have active online social lives so we're comfortable with computer mediated communication. We're good at "getting" people we meet online, good at reading between the written lines.
But like anything else, there's a learning curve to successful online dating. Here are a few tips I gleaned while writing Introverts in Love: The Quiet Way to Happily Ever After.
