Do You Have to Be an Extrovert to Find Love Online?

Aug 17, 2007
If you're wondering "Is Internet dating only for extroverts?" wonder no more. In fact, introverts are the ones that may have the most success dating on the Internet. They can go at their own pace, be as cautious as they need to be, maintain their anonymity for as long as they want, and not have to meet anyone or even talk to anyone by phone until and if they are ready.

No, Internet dating is most definitely not only for extroverts. Many millions of people use and have used Internet dating, and many thousands of these at least have found the love of their life this way. These Internet daters are both extroverts and introverts.

Here are some more statistics about the folks who make a practice of Internet dating. What may surprise you is that three out of every single adult in the United States has used Internet dating at one time or another. This is often because they are introverts or because they are very busy people who don't have the time or inclination for the local bar scene.

Women who try Internet dating average about five emails every day they are members of a dating site, while the men only get one or two. What this means is that many of the women on these Internet dating sites are shy and careful, not extroverts at all. Of the males who use the Internet dating sites 40 percent of them admitted to lacking confidence about their first face to face meeting. See, not extroverted at all.

Other statistics about these dating sites include the fact that they're much less costly than they used to be. Probably because so many folks are using them that many others are cropping up and the competition has driven the price down.

Most women who use Internet dating sites, whether extroverts or introverts, prefer men that are older than themselves. Which is good, as it turns out, because most men who use Internet dating sites are looking for women who are younger than themselves.

Not that you know that Internet dating is not only for extroverts, here are some tips for giving it a try. The first thing you need to decide is what you want from Internet dating. Are you looking for a friend, occasional one night stands, a long term partner or marriage? Next find the right site or two or three. Find online reviews of the various sites and find the ones most suited for you. There are sites that are specific to age, religion, geographic region, body size, political views, sports choices and so forth.
Choose a site based on what you can afford as well.

Assume that it might take you six months to find the right person, especially if you're not an extrovert. Two Internet dating sites are better than just one. It won't cost you more if it takes you half the time by joining two. Even if you are not an extrovert, you can generally meet a few nice people, and perhaps the love of your life, through Internet dating.
