Is online dating for the desprate

I like exploring, hiking, campfires, reading, things like that. I am thinking about taking a look at some dating sites to see what they are like.

However, there are some things about me that have made dating hard. What I'm trying to say is, it's just really, really hard to meet people in the situation I'm in.

I tend to live out in wilderness-y areas with little to no population around. I've also turned into a bit of an introvert (different than being shy) and I don't enjoy going out to bars or getting drunk. There is little to no social life in my environment, mostly because I live in the middle of freaking nowhere.

We are living in a time of great transition for digital romance.

A new study from the Pew Research Center's Internet and American Life Project, released Monday, found that 59 percent of American Internet users believe that “online dating is a good way to meet people,” a 14-point jump since 2005.

So no offense whatsoever intended to anyone who is on those sites, but I do have a question or two to ask about those websites: I am a nice, friendly, polite, confident guy.

I'm athletic, reasonably tall and not ugly (I'm no supermodel, but I'm certainly not repulsive).

While some of the matching questions on places like Ok Cupid can tell you important things about a potential partner—does this person think abortion should be legal or believe that gay marriage should not?
