What does everyone think of online dating? Has anyone ever done this before? Do you think it's successful?

It was successful for me. I met my hubby online at through a reputable dating site. He's the best thing that ever happened to me. My sister also met her hubby online in a chat room and they are very happy. I think it can be a great thing, but both parties have to be totally honest. You can find some real shmucks out there that lie and say anything. You do have to be careful too, because there are alot of people that want to take advantage of people that are looking for someone.

Good for you. May I know which site did you go? Since I am blind in this kind of new technology. Thanks for your help.

i have had a few friends that have done online dating some it works and some it don't you have to find your compatible type. I found mine on a phone line they had in Utah, which was kewl. After a year of dating and all, i was about to give up and then i found the one I have been with for now 11 years come this November! So it does work, I know one lady was with one husband for 6 years divorced and found another soul mate and they been happily married after 3 months of dating now they have been married 3 years. My daughter's mom, who she now lives with her dad, my hubby. But, you know it does work, it depends on what you are looking for and it depends on your matches and all. You have to find someone with the same interests as you. Don't look to hard i find if you let it come to you it will. And it does, that is what I told my daughter's mom and it fell in her lap a week later a man she loves and he loves her unconditionally. just like with me! Good luck and if you try just be safe at it. Meet in a public place and meet after a few chats on line and on the phone. Don't go to his/her place until you all know each other after a few dates. Use safety and get to know one another before meeting in each other places, take your time and talk with each other. before jumping at each other and meeting in seclusion. Good luck with it :)

Online dating is helpful, but not really good for longterm relationships. It does work for some people. Some people find their soulmates with online dating. I have dated few girls from online dating and they were only one to three dates and that was it, nothing more.

I have a few different dateing sites I have used but none of them really have worked out for me. Most people judge by look unstead of looking at the profile. I'm a larger women and I'm sure that has something to do with the hard time I have had. That and I live in a small area and theres just not much to pick from.

It must be otherwise they wouldn't still be around. It hasn't been for me though. The women I met through them aren't the best I think. I'm sure some think that way about me too. They must work for some people but I haven't had very good luck and most of them charge way to much for me.

I did it when I was like 12. He was a jerkkk, and i dont really ever wanna do it again. I think they're a waste of time...and it's alot better to have a 'real life' partner than an online one because with an online relationship, you can't hold or kiss each other, you can only type on the keyboard or possibly just talk on the phone.

Narrow down the list of potential online sites to your top three and compare them to determine pros and cons of each. Pay particular attention to monthly/yearly cost, free versus fee services, and number of website members.

Kinda have did this. But sometime these do not work out because how can you trust someone that you are dating online. How do you know what they are doing when they are not online. No it is not successful because as my point of view. I am noticing are they really the same person that you are talking too. Are they being honest with you. Do you really know who is on the other side of the monitor. Do you know if they are telling you the honest truth. How do you know if they are a murderer or not. How do you know their background.

I have developed over a dozen online relationships in the last 4 years and each one of them has ended badly[most of them ending before even meeting in person]. Yet,I still hold out hope because I hear the stories of "happily ever after", from ppl that have met online. I guess I am a hopeless romantic.

it is nice to flirt online but i have never found a date online. i think the problem is i have not entered any pay site which keep sending me messages from (god knows if they are real) people i would like to meet. the question is that are these sites really sending messages from real people or they are just taking you for a ride! i do not know and would like to know more!
