Overcoming shyness and dating

This allows them to "see" potential dating partners before they arrange their first date.

If the participants in a single's column are truthful, this way of meeting people can be one of the most honest there is. Third, the relationship can proceed in stages, first with letters, then with telephone calls, and finally with coffee or lunch.
