Have you used dating sites to find "love"?

And if so, do you consider yourself successful? Success may be measured by any outcome that made you happy that you chose to use a dating site to find a partner.

I have not used a dating site. I have browsed through one just to see how they worked and how they were set up.

My brother tried it, and married the girl, which lasted for about a year. He's still trying it. Go figure.

I've been on match.com for about 3 months and haven't found anyone worth meeting in person.

No, school is the best dating site out there.

I met my husband online, though it wasn't through a dating site. We started out as friends and just clicked.

I haven't used one but I do know one couple who got married after meeting on one.

This is going to sound horrid, but I only found dropkicks on dating sites. I'm looking for classier guys than what I found there.

I have not. I was dating before these were popular or even available.

One of my best friends used Match.com and found the man she married. They've been together for years, and have a toddler. They are very happy.

My mom also found her second husband from a dating service, but I don't think it was a computer site. She married the man and they were in love. He died a few years ago. (she likes older men, like I do) They were happy for many years, though. (It didn't stop her from nearly nagging the man to death though. Some people never learn.) I got a brother and a sister out of the deal.

I used a dating site to find a date and meet new people but I didn't expect to find love and I didn't. That felt like a lot of pressure to put on myself.

No, I haven't resorted to dating sites. I do know a couple who met on one and it was just a bad match. I know another couple who met on the same site and got married.

I never have, but I know friends who have and had luck with the dating sites.

Okcupid.com has always been a hit for me. I met my current boyfriend on there.

Try Okcupid.com! It's free!

Nope, and I don't plan on using them either. I don't trust them to be honest.

I joined a few earlier this year. It's definitely trial and error, just like meeting people the old fashioned way. I've made some good friends though

I've never joined an online dating site. I've never wanted to.

Never tried an actual dating site. With my current bf (of 6 years now!) we met and weren't "officially" dating when he moved 5 hours away. We were best friends though, and kept in touch mostly online, and we began dating then.

I've never used one, but I've had friends who have with varying success (one found only jerks, one ended up marrying someone she met on the site).

Yes, and it was a horrible relationship. I vowed not to use them again and met my husband IRL (through work.)

I've been on a dating site but not to "find love", per say. More for amusement, which it has provided.

I've never used one. I know a few people who have and are happy with the outcome
though.

I have used a few of them. By far, my favorite free site has been OKCupid. However, it is much like any situation that you come across, sometimes you win big and sometimes you go home with a big tub of ice cream and your sad face on. I just recently, actually, met someone who I am very interested in, and who I think is very interested in me. I have had a lot of misses though.

No, but I once had to go to a dating site for a class and record statistics about what people find important in a potential mate, such as height and hair color....which were pretty specific needs for a lot of people!

I've looked at the pictures and profiles on a couple without really telling much about myself or posting a picture. Just scoping it out. Curious you might say. Maybe one day...

Never tried it, but almost kind of considering it. I have a handful of friends who've had success (and a lot of failures) on OkCupid. Still, the general idea of meeting someone for the express purpose of trying to wiggle into a relationship just seems to cheapen the idea of attachment for me. Meeting people for sex - that's just efficiency.
