Have you? Have you had blind dates? I met my bf online and we've been together a year & a half. So far so good:)

Yes I have had a few dates and blind dates from people I have met on line, many years ago now I hasten to add and I certainly wouldn't do it again, I am unlucky in love and accepted that! The people I have met are nothing like what they describe on the line and certainly their photos are NOTHING like them, the ones that were blind dates I think at the time I wanted the ground to swallow me up! No thanks, I'll stay single me thinks. Well done for yours working, it works for some and not for others and certainly NOT me.

I met a few people online before. I even had few partners I met from the internet world. However, I think I'm not that good in choosing partners online. The relationships ended in despair. So sad.

Net camera plays a role to see some one. Therefore we can see the person to whom we talk or chat. In this respect we could not call it a practice of blind date. This is game of beauty. Love and heart.

I haven't used online services myself, and I'm not really the kind of person who goes out planning to meet people like that, but I have a friend that uses them. He had several really bad dates, but around 6 months ago he met a girl online that he hit off well with and is still dating, so I guess it can work.

Yes, I have dated someone I met online, in fact, we got married. We will be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary in February. I will say though, that we dated some before we moved int together. That being said, I had the opportunity to meet his family, and him mine. We met in a chat room on MSN, but that room was a groupe of people from the state I live in and a few surrounding states. I think the long distance type relationships that are started online may not be a good thing, as it is too easy to be decitful about oneself. The person may not be all that they seem. But good luck with the boyfriend, and I hope it works out wonderfully for the two of you!!

Dating - I am not ready to do this step in my life. I still long for my ex. If he don't come around in our life again I will let him go forever.
I dated a guy on the internet 4 years ago and I will never do that again. I dated him for a few months We talked on the phone everyday for hours, and at nighttime we chated on msn chatroom. We did this for months and we exchanged pictures of ourselves. Finally we said lets move in together. so he moved to my town in alaska to be my roommate. That was a dumb idea on my part to except this. well months later I got pregnant, and I broke up with him months later because he hid from me about him being mentally disabled, before he moved to my town. He made himself sound like a regular smart person on the net and the phone. I found out the first night living with him that I was to become his mommy and take care of him. I got him a job, I can't believe he couldn't do that on his own. He worked where I worked, then a week later boss wanted to fire him because he was slow and wouldn't speed up, I begged for him to give him another chance that I would work with him. That didn't work, I tried to work with him, but I don't think he was listening or didn't understand. He watched me and looked like he was listening but he didn't try or say anything about my ideas. Now I have a 3 year old to take care of and he don't want anything to do with him since he was a baby in the hospital, why? because when I sent him pictures of the baby he said "he looks like you" I wrote him back and said he does have some of your features amd I explained to him, but I haven't heard from him since and he changed his email account so I couldn't write him. SO in my opinion from experience Internet dating is another scam. People don't fully tell the truth or tell you what they should share about themselves personally. I would rather meet someone locally in my town or a hold friend moving into town. Though at my present I do sorta miss my exhusband that abandoned us 8 months ago. I am kinda communitcating to him through email. I hope he calls me, I want answers. I am just not ready to date anyone else yet.

Not only I had dated the person I met online, I have already taken her as my wife and now we already have an 8-month-old son and things have been going great so far. Therefore, it does not matter where you met a person. What matters is whether we can be with that person or not.
