I agree completely with those who said shy people find it easier to communicate online. I'm the kind of person who completely freezes up at parties and has trouble making small talk. In addition to being shy, I also have a bad case of astigmitism or "lazy eye," meaning when I actually do get up the nerve to look someone in the eyes, one eye kind of turns in the other direction. Sometimes I think it freaks people out a little. Of course when I'm online no one can see this, and I also have time to think about what I'm going to say rather than just blurting out something stupid due to nerves. (OK, sometimes I do blurt out something stupid even when I'm online, but still...)

Bono, maybe you should wear your shades at parties!

I am also shy, and sometimes even have trouble posting online.
However, i much prefer the face-to-face communication, so I can really know or believe to know what the other person thinks of me. However, i believe that looks are the determining factor for the formation of any romantic relationship in that if you are not physically attracted to the other person, you will have no physical incentive to be with them. But on the other hand, personality is far more important once the relationship has been formed, as others have noted. To give a personal example, there is a woman at my workplace, who I've come to know pretty well and is attractive, charming, and extremely nice. i am attracted to her far more than than any woman I have ever met, including many that were more attractive. i guess what I'm trying to say is, try to meet as many potential partners as possible and you will eventually find the right combination of qualities that are attractive to you.
This thread will never end.

This has completely shocked me in a few cases. I met one Interferencer who was REALLY shy in person - pretty different from the online persona. After meeting the individual, I was convinced that they really didn't like me. It was just the shyness.

I do not hide behind anything here at Interland...most of the Interlanders I have met can tell you that.

Hopefully I wasn't the one who shocked Mrs. Edge or MVD by my appearance/opposed to online photos (which I have very few of).

i'm shy at first but when i get over the initial shyness and nervousness i'm fine. i can make small talk with the best of them....i'd like to think.

and i think that it's a combination of both looks and personality. cause let's face it when your at a party where you don't know many people it's not the man/woman's personality the gets you off your butt moves you across the room to chat and ask for their phone #. well at that's never happened to me.

i think for the most part (not including online stuff cause that's a totally different situation) looks are what starts things off with a potential partner and personality keeps you there.

no one that i have met from here in person has surprised me in the appearance area. it has all been due to the personality. you were the same as you appear online and on the phone.

I think both matter.........

well, I tell you this, I have had pple email or PM me over the net, and once they say something like 'so what do u do?' or 'tell me about you' - well, they way I wackily am, I never really here from them again.

I remember one Interferencer who mailed me over the time I said I was feeling pretty down (when I first started), but, because I dont do much with my life - never heard from him again.

And this has happened on a few occasions with me....its like...I scare pple off or something.........although internet conversation isnt always a healthy thing...I think you are better understood when in the actual company of that person.

Lookwise, I scare every guy off....I have so far.

I dunno, Im just happy enough hanging with guys and being a tomboy really.

Both looks and personality matter to some extent. But good looks won't make up for nasty personality, whereas great personality can make you forget about shortage in looks department.
