How many times have you wanted to talk to someone and make an introduction, but you didn’t because you were gripped by anxiety and you wound up talking yourself out of it? That sort of thing happens all the time and because it is so common, you’d be surprised by how many miss connections there are.
However, when you are online, you don’t feel the same amount of anxiety. In fact, many people feel more confident sending people a message to someone they are interested in because they don’t have to worry about stumbling over their words and possibly being rejected. Think about it, you have the chance to create a well thought out message to someone you’re interested in by pulling information from their profile.
You can tailor your message to show that you are interested in them more because of who they are, rather than their appearance. And, should you get rejected, it doesn’t nearly sting as much because you didn’t “meet” them yet. For many people, online dating is the ideal way to meet people because it is much easier to woo someone when you are able to think of charming things to say, rather than just winging it!
