Have you ever done it? Does it work do you think? Have you ever used an online dating service? Do you think this can be a good way to meet somebody? I have never met anybody online or used a dating service, I am in a relationship right now but I was curious to see if anybody had a success or horror story for meeting/talking to somebody over the internet.....

to tell the truth i tried many, but so far nothing really happened, many replied, but finally end up asking for help, or asking to send money to their account....so sad, real people are fading away.

i don't believe that it will be proper to pursue somebody who immediately asks for money even if you do not know each other enough yet. it is clear that these people are making friends online in the hope of finding somebody who will give them some money out of nothing. these lazy ones must never be tolerated to be spending money that they haven't earned good and hard.

I have met a few people i met online. I have both horror and success stories. I ahve never used a dating service but emt someone i chatted with on yahoo. It was not a date but more of friends meeting. i personally met them only after talking to them on the phone for a while. there were a couple really weird guys (specially one who started stalking me) but my current bf is the other one I me tonline. We hit it off. So i guess its just a metter of meeting the right person online.

I have used Bulgarian and foreign dating sites. In Bulgarian ones i found just maniacs and bored people who are there for some fun. At the foreign ones i found some interesting friends.

I have had some bad dates but nothing horrific. Just a guy that I turned out to be not so compatable with. I have never found someone that actually turned into a relationship but I have met a couple of people that are now close friends. So all in all I would have to say not a bad experience.

no, i have never tried it. it was not available during my time then. i have seen some relationships prosper though. they started at the internet. at first chatting, then talking, then as they know each other more, the relationship deepens. they meet on a decided date and time, then found that they fell in love after sometime, with each other. i believe it is just fine to pursue something like htis but with some caution taken to some degree.
