I've been single for 3 years now, and I'm ready to jump back into the dating scene. The only problem is that I'm pretty shy, so it's hard for me to actually meet guys on campus.
I've been tossing around the idea of making a dating profile through OkCupid (if there are better sites then please let me know). I kind of feel like resorting to online dating is almost like admitting defeat, or admitting I'm desperate. I'm not looking for a soul mate right now. I'm just interested in meeting some cool people that I hopefully hit it off with.
So, what do you think? Should I be embarrassed for wanting to make a profile? Is it a bad idea?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with making an online dating account. Making an online dating account doesn`t mean you`re desperate or that you`re sad or something, it means that you`re looking for someone in a different kind of way. Trying to find someone you like on a dating site is easier for people because they can instantly see if someone has similar interests to make it easier when dating and also having the ability to find someone that fits your perfect guy/girl.
You may be shy, dut dont be afraid of sending someone a message asking if he/she would like to chat sometime because this may give you confidence when you`re going on an actual date. Sure there are times that someone doesn`t feel the same towards you when you ask him/her to chat, but that`s the same as in real life but easier to get over with.
I`ve made an account recently where I message 8 girl and 2 of them were interested in chatting with me even when one girl described herself as extremely shy.
So basically there`s nothing wrong about it and it gives you the possibility of finding your perfect partner fast, easy and with more confidence because of your shyness.
I don`t know if there`s any good dating site for your region, I myself use relatieplanet. nl as I`m Dutch.2
