  1. As an introvert and someone who grew up along with the Internet, I never thought twice about it. Met my husband online without even using a dating site. I’ve always felt that I can get to know people better when I meet them online. There are no visual biases to get past and text is slower than speech so it gives one time to think and hopefully be more articulate. I think I would be very alone and probably depressed without the Internet.
