I bet this thread is overdone, but...well, there's no reason we can't do it again. We' were jsut having this discussion buried in another thread about something entirely unrelatd, and it is a good question.
Where do introverts find dates, given we don't do the bar/club scene for obvious reasons [those people eat people like us alive] and we can't exactly walk up to people like ourselves and ask them out in bookstores or any random place [we assume to other is creepy, or somehow scare ourselves all the more against that person].
Now I have heard it said we need to do activities where we expand our social arrangements, but I'm not exactly seeing anything prodictive here. For instance, we could join a sporting club, but for an person like me, I don't enjoy sports, and if I was just to get a date, I'd be playing on false pretence - and in short, the relationship isn't going to last because one of us is lying about who we really are.
I've been giving online dating a shot - and OkCupid seems to be a good avenue here in the states. Craigslist - stay away, it's a bunch of scammers and * * * * * * . Seriously! I posted one ad, and netted six read SIX scammer replies in two hours. The women posting are playing a differnet game - the "have fun and then never call again" game...so, that's my take on it thus far.
Anyone have better options for all of us introverts out here? Because there are a lot of us, and you know where to find us! We just aren't too good at finding each other!!!
