Trazey has some good points. I sort of needed to be reminded of them myself!

While internet dating sites can be a way to meet people you wouldn't otherwise meet, the fact is that real life isn't lived online. The things you say you enjoy doing at home alone can also be done in public -- why not try spending some time at a book store, library, or internet cafe, where you can "hide" behind a book while trying to get comfortable outside your "comfort zone"? If that is too difficult, perhaps there is some other activity or group you could explore, as a way to hang out with people who share your same interests.

No matter what your age or experience, the "love" thing can be scary and you have to remember you're not the only one who might be afraid of getting hurt. And if you do get hurt or heartbroken, use that as a learning experience, not as a reason to hold back from trying again.

Most of all, lose the "deadline" mentality -- 29 is still YOUNG!!! (A number of my friends didn't get married or start having families until in their 40s).

Good luck to you!
