Online dating may be the best thing that ever happened to introverts. It lets us scroll through sites scanning for a potential mate from the comfort of our couch, which is great for those who feel socializing in a bar or group setting is the worst. And to make it better, these online dating sites have features that help shy singles make meaningful connections.
Looking for a trustworthy companion? Try Zoosk. They’ve got 40-million singles using their site and the sites algorithm recognizes your preferences from the actions you take. The more you use the site, the better it can match you with a mate. For introverts, the SmartPick feature can help be an icebreaker. If both you and someone you're interested in both vote "yes" on each other's profiles, the SmartPick feature will share the good news.
Looking for long-term partnership? Try eharmony. This site has members fill out a Relationship Questionnaire to start and sends you compatible matches based on results. For introverts, they have a feature called RelyID that helps verify the personal info given my members, like name, city, and age. So no catfishing! And they offer Guided Communication to help you break the ice, too.
Want a perfect personality match? Try Elite Singles. They say their users are mainly educated, relatively affluent adults between 30 and 55 who are looking for long-term commitment. Once you take an in-depth personality test, they send you matches every day. It’s good for introverts because they can match you with traits that are most compatible with yours.
Want to go incognito? Try Match.com. This site has members with diverse backgrounds that share a common goal: to meet singles, find dates, and form romantic relationships. Introverts may like Match because they regularly host meet-up events where you can interact face-to-face. And they have a feature called Incognito Mode that lets you view profiles without the other person knowing.
Really want to go incognito? Try Anomo. For singles who want social interactions based on their location and common experiences, instead of using long questionnaires or looks, this could be your dating site. Anomo may appeal to introverts because it starts off casual so you can feel things out and gives you an avatar to use and hides all your personal information to start with and you can reveal yourself over time, if you choose.
Are you single and shy? Try Single and Shy. This site claims about 1,000 bashful singles looking for dates join daily and it uses a system that matches you based on your preferences, location, and interests. Plus, there’s a wink feature that you can use to flirt with other members without having to write a message, so introverts may like that.
