SingleAndShy is the leading single shy dating site on the internet, we are dedicated to providing the best service possible for all of our members.
Chatting online is undoubtedly a good stepping stone for shy people who want to get better at talking to people. On our site people frequently chat before meeting in person and this is a very good process but don't imagine that it solves every issue. When it comes to meeting in person there is still some preparation that can be done to improve your confidence and conversation skills. Overcoming shyness is a realistic goal if you look at it the right way - there is no need to become the king of linguistics or the master of confidence, just going up to someone and having a down to earth conversation is a great step for many shy people, plus there are just as many negative traits in a person who talks to much as there are in people who rarely speak.
The interesting thing that we've heard back from many of our members is that dating introverts and shy people have allowed them to better understand themselves and their issues when speaking to people. It's similar to seeing yourself in a mirror, when you realize that someone is having so much internal dialogue when you're trying to have a conversation it can show you perhaps how your own behaviour is like some times. Similarly, when dating someone who is reluctant to speak, you might push yourself forward more to suggest topics of discussion and work harder to keep a conversation going, which is something you might not have tried if you were around a very talkative person. There are many benefits to dating a shy person which can help you in your own process of overcoming shyness.
The best thing about dating other shy people is that you can work off of one another to develop your social skills. When dating very outgoing people, it's much more difficult because they usually have no problem with talking and are more than able to pick up where you're lacking in the conversation. When two shy people are having a conversation then the strain is on both of the individuals to develop it and work to keep it going. In a way, when you are around other shy people it's much easier to improve your social skills, as you're more forced to put work into it, and with work comes improvement.
