My advice would be to work on the shyness first and then the relationship. When you're able to be face to face with a person, you will have a much better chance of being able to find a good partner.

What have you done so far to address your shyness?

You are setting yourself up for heartbreak. A local person who is right there will be better for you.

Identify ways you can reconnect with old friends & set yourself up to meet new people.

Dating is a numbers game. You have to enlarge your circle.

Depending on your age, moving out of mom's house may be a good first step.

If Dating is a numbers game. My friends that have current relationships. From my observations, they are not super high profile where everyone under the sun is coming up to them for various reasons.

I don't think its a numbers game. I meet and know lots of people. I make more friendships over love relationships. I don't know why that is.

My male friends. When I look at their women. The women to me seem like they want to settle down, and my male buddies went along with it.

My fremale friends were more along the lines of getting their men to settle down with them/go steady with them and my female friends are not trying to date a lot of men.

In my mind. I think that guys come off as wanting to date a lot of women. Women don't want to date a lot of guys.
