They say there is someone for everyone out there.

Recently on the television there have been a lot of advertisements for Match.com,now this is an internet dating site,where you may be able to meet a mate.It seems that they have a guarantee that you will meet a mate,if not they will give you a refund.They are advertising that they have an excess of people looking for love and romance too!Now I found this quite interesting,and I began to wonder if these dating agencies actually do work.I assume that you as the `customer` fill in a profile,which in turn gets put on their database,then they see who they have `in stock` who is a suitable match for you.In theory this seems a pretty good idea,there are so many single people who would love to find a soulmate,and although I would imagine you would pay a joining /registration fee that you may well be introduced to prospective friends.Mr Ruby and I were reading through the lonely hearts columns today,and we were amazed at the amount of young people that were hoping to meet someone ,and on the flip side of the coin the amount of elderly peole that were hoping to meet someone for companionship.There were also one or two who were looking for someone to accompany them on theatre trips and meals out etc.When we thought about this we said how difficult it would be to maybe meet another partner if you were an elderly person,unless you frequent pubs or clubs,or circulate then how would you begin?I wonder if anyone in Mylot has met a soulmate through Match.com,or a dating agency,or a lonely hearts column?

Hey there ruby222 I have a real problem meeting guys because I have three kids and rarely have the money to go out. I am not too sure either these days if there are men out there that would be interested in being with someone who already has three kids as I would not like to have anymore kids either, done and dusted there, body is past it! I did meet a guy last year through the vodaphone chat service and he came down from Kent to Devon and ended up staying and moved in for a while. He was a nice enough guy but wasn't for me and we split up. Problem is, is how it effected my kids. They weren't upset but still ask if they can go visit him as he got a job and found a flat down here. Next guy I meet will have to be local and be prepared to wait about a year until I am sure and ready for him to meet my kids. What person would want a relationship with me that has too much pressure and will always come second in my life!?

Humbug..any man who would wish to date you would have to take you as a package,your children come as a part of you.If any guy falls for you ,he will only too willingly take you on as a family.

Yes you are right ruby222 and if he can't accept that then he isn't worth dating eh?

My friend uses match.com but, he has had no luck yet finding somebody!! He has had a few dates but nothing come to much and but I think he is really fussy when it comes to looks which I know is wrong but, that is the way he is! I am sure he will find somebody soon! : )

yes, it is true. i believe in that. i have heard of match.com but i dont really join in that site. maybe coz i dont believe in paying for a site to meet the love of my life. there's a lot of dating sites out there that are free.

Thats good to hear too,if there are sites that are free of charge it is a much better way to use those sites.why pay if you can access it for nothing!

I keep hearing of people that have met online and are now happily married or in "meaningful relationships" Ruby. So it clearly works for some. I'm in love with half the women here - but The Boss won't let me have an affair. I think that there is a lot to be said for online relationships. People here know things about me that many of my real life friends don't simply because of the cloak of anonymity that is our avatars and the screen. Once upon a time I wouldn't have given you tuppence for an online love affair. But now I see that there may well be something in it. So meet you under the station clock?............

I think it would also helped for those people who are very busy int here schedule and that there is no time on meeting other people and I think it is also helpful for them especially to those people who did not meet their other half or soul mate in their respective life......

Hi ruby, I hate the 'things' and never have been on one, a friend tried to get me to go to a singles night but I wouldn't..my way of seeing things is if you are going to meet someone then it will just happen naturally but in these single date dating it is as if you are thrown together...littleowl
