Dating Sites For Introverts (7 Best Sites)

by April Maccario

Dating in this modern world has become quite seamless. Before, to get a lady’s attention, the guy had to meet her, ‘woo’ her and all the other fancy words. I’d like to think that introverts have benefited from these more ‘convenient platforms’ where people simply have to swipe to find ‘the one.’ 

Now, there are numerous dating sites out there that allow ladies to fill in their profile information, include some interesting details about their lives, and of course put up a saucy profile picture to attract ‘suitors.’ As many as they are, some of them are quite busy, complicated, and very explicit as well. 

No doubt, some people swear by Tinder, while others just prefer the plain old ‘traditional dating’ where they meet their dates physically before getting to know them. Well, the good news is that technology has afforded everyone the option of meeting someone online or in-person, depending on what they prefer. 

More so, being an introvert doesn’t necessarily mean you’re shy, it simply means you prefer more quiet environments, would rather be indoors than at every social gathering, just for the peace of it. That’s what makes dating for introverts more unique and convenient in today’s world, a person simply has to download a dating app for introverts, and find someone with similar interests. 

Online dating has never been more convenient, and you might be asking if there are really special platforms for introverts. Well, if you haven’t heard of them before, sit back, and let’s go through them together. 

Dating Sites For Introverts

1. Zoosk

People usually have misconceptions about introverts, you hear many things from they are shy, wicked, pretenders and the likes. It can be quite hurtful because these ideas are really wrong. So it’s really great to have a dating site like Zoosk that gives introverts the opportunity to meet someone who either understands them. 

Zoosk

These days where love isn’t limited to the traditional ‘meet and court’ scenario, people can easily log on to this site or download the app and have numerous options and potential matches from the locals around the specific area. There’s no surprise it is the Number 1 grossing dating app on the Apple store. 

So, if your looking for love and would like to go through the online process as smoothly and secretly as possible, then Zoosk is the app for you. What’s amazing about its algorithm is how it’s able to take note of your likes and dislikes and deliver potential matches in real-time. 

It also takes note of the nature of your activity on the app and tailors more similar results or matches to you. In fact, over 30 million of its users rave about the Smartpick feature, which notifies two people who clicked ‘yes’ on each other’s profiles, and kind of gives them the nudge and some tips to get the flame started. 

2. OkCupid

Online dating isn’t all about who has the best profile picture, because at the end of the day, while physical appearance is important, the guy still has to have a nice attitude, probably industrious and whatever else you’d prefer. OkCupid takes this into consideration and ensures you put your interests, preferences and even share your story without having to say a word

On this app, you’re more than you profile picture, everything is taken into consideration to get you a good match. It’s that one dating platform you can really be yourself on, and hopefully even find someone with the same quirky, fun yet reserved nature as you.

Also, finding a match on this site should be easy, as they have innovative algorithms that take into account your shared data, and use that to seamlessly find a possible match or more. These people are ranked with percentages that tell users how compatible they are, and the possible success rate with each person as well. 

OkCupid doesn’t judge, it’s neutral bow simply helps millions of users find a compatible match, and help the two of them get the ball rolling on the app first, and hopefully in a non-virtual and more physical environment as well. 

3. E-Harmony

If meeting people or going on blind dates hasn’t really worked for you, and if you possibly don’t like going out that much, you’re likely asking yourself “How am I ever going to find somebody?” Well, don’t be too harsh on yourself, many happy couples today met virtually, and dated online before ever meeting face to face.

Before that first date, E-Harmony presents a warm platform for singles searching for a serious relationship. The site seeks to unite two potential lovers through a vigorous 29-dimension compatibility system. It might sound like hard work, but what isn’t? The more a person fills out information, or asks questions, the site is able to use smart analytics to pair two similar people. 

First off, this is one of the apps that takes time to ensure its users are legit, so there are more chances of finding someone who genuinely wants a relationship as well. It uses a smart feature called ‘RelyID’ to verify the information provided by its users. What’s even better is how your profile is only tailored to your potential matches and no-one else, making this one of the best dating platforms for discretion and privacy

It doesn’t stop there, E-Harmony helps you make the first move by providing a 4-step system of communication that serves as the ice-breaker with the people you’ve been matched with.

4. Shy Passions

If you’re looking for a free platform that won’t hurt your account, but might end up mending your heart, then Shy Passions is one to look at. It’s one of the best platforms to get to know people virtually, before meeting up physically and possibly going on a date. It’s a platform that encourages both casual and serious relationships, so the options are there from the onset. 

Plus, it’s equally a great site for people who are shy, less social, or identify as an introvert. It’s not just one feature tailored to help introverts out, the whole site kind of supports singles who are more reserved than most. Most people may find this site more comfortable, because they are most likely to find someone who understands the introverted nature and way of life, and you won’t feel judged or belittled for who you are. 

Also, it’s for people who would like to connect with that special person, chat for a while, then possibly meet up if things go well. There are even voice and video chatting, as opposed to just messaging each other, so you’ll get to see this guy before meeting up on an agreed date later. 

Although the sight allows users the freedom to go searching themselves, the app algorithm equally helps to tailor that search to the people you’re are most compatible with. The only downer is that there isn’t an app yet, so you’ll have to settle for the site, which is pretty efficient if you ask me. 

5. Meetup

 It’s no surprise how millions have signed up on sings like ‘Meetup’ to connect with people and get to know them virtually, before actually meeting them face to face. What makes Meetup a lot more unique than other sites or apps is the purpose. It encourages participants to actually meet up in real life with a group of people on the site, and do something they’re similarly interested in. 

Meetup

It’s not just for those looking for love and companionship, it equally serves as a great platform for people looking for platonic or business relationships. It could be a pottery class, a fitness program, cooking classes, or even dancing classes. These fun activities encourage introverts to come out of their shell and meet people, or that special person during the group meetups. 

Meetup isn’t formally a dating site, but it’s a great platform for singles to meet up with people with like passions, connect and probably develop a relationship. Still, if you just want to have fun, learn something new and meet up with fun groups that will light up your day, this is the app for that. Who knows, it might even be one of the participants’ cousins, brothers, or friends that end up capturing your heart. 

6. Anomo

Every day, we have the opportunity of meeting ‘Mr Right,’ or “Mr Right Now’ for others who prefer something more casual. However, so many factors get in the way; people are busy, working remotely, and online dating has simply become the most convenient and interesting way of meeting people and finding a good match.

Well, instead of watching what’s not working why not make the first move and join a site like Anomo, which makes things more fun by providing an interactive and entertaining platform for singles to mingle. First, the app tries to gather the basic data, your interests, likes, dislikes, hobbies, preferences and more, then helps find a compatible match for you. 

Plus, the app gives you the opportunity to reveal yourself to another user who you feel more connected or comfortable with. All your information is locked and private, so the choice is yours’ you decide how much information to release per time and to whom. 

It may not even be your match, that’s the fun thing about the app, there are fun games that lure you into participation, or fun conversation so your part of the action. 

No doubt, it’s a unique, user-friendly app that’s great for introverts who want to connect with a potential match, find friends, play fun interactive games, or just browse content on the app. 

7. Bumble

Make the first move with this fun and efficient free app that boasts of over 23 million users. The focus isn’t simply on creating romantic relationships, there are opportunities to find people if you’re new in a city, expand your business network and make more fun and meaningful relationships online with potential employers or partners.

The app presents users with many compatible profiles and if you like what you see, simply swipe right, if you don’t swipe left. However, the lady has to take the first step here, by reaching out first, after both parties swipe right, if she doesn’t contact the guy within the stipulated 24-hour period, the connection disappears. 

Bumble is changing the dynamics of dating, pushing the limits traditional stereotypes laced us into, and giving users a level playground to get things moving. By level playground, I mean ‘consent’ which has been a very controversial issue in recent times. The ladies have the choice to either reach out to the guy they were interested in or choose someone else, there’s no real conversation before this, so no feelings are hurt.
