For the majority of us, having to go out and find somebody you do not know and then strike up a conversation to begin a potential relationship is one of the most stressful experiences, any of us are likely to have. Thankfully, dating in the online world relieves a lot of this stress and tension. Forget the past and move forward I am an extrovert but have good friends who are shy.

Even extroverts can get butterflies in their stomach when it comes to meeting somebody new.

I'm not talking about love at first sight – what I mean is enjoying our time together and feeling that things are progressing nicely. Then after some time, when I'm ready to call it quits, she'll say, "Thanks for giving me the time I needed, I'm really into this." By then, I'm half shutting down, after having given, but not received back, for some time. In order to do that, it will help to first understand how the pattern works.

It's very common for one dater to become emotionally invested sooner than the other.
