Internet Dating: Yes, No, or Maybe?

Sinfully Sinfully
I'd do it but it wouldn't be my first choice.

I've dated a few interesting guys via the internet but on the other hand I've met with some real jerks. I've learned to be very careful and to get to know them for a while before I go out with them.

I hate to say "never," but really, why bother resorting to the internet when there are so many great prospects all around me?

I've done it in the past, and I'll probably wind up doing it again. I'm too shy to approach guys in public, and when one approaches me, I tend to freeze up and get all tongue-tied, and they seem to think I'm not interested, so they walk away. So...yeah. I can open up easier online. Plus I have an easier time editing myself when I'm typing than when I'm speaking.

It REALLY depends on where you're looking, though. Some free sites are just full of people looking for hookups, and it's really hard to find a serious relationship. And the whole matchmaking program thing...meh. I'm not convinced it's worth the money. I was on one of those sites, paid, for a year. Which included three months of no internet access...so I felt a little gypped. At least there are all kinds of niche dating sites now, so you can cruise through a pool of Christians, geeks, BBWs, or whatever else catches your fancy.

If you're smart and careful (ie meeting in public places) and honest with yourself (ie knowing what you want in a partner, not just looking for pictures of hot guys/girls/whatever) then you can have success.

My last boyfriend I met online. Wasn't through any sort of dating site, we just met in a chat room. Not sure I'd wanna do the long distance thing again.

Dont it, hypothetically would again (kind of claimed). As long as you use some precautions, it can be a great way to meet people

Done it before and had an LDR that ended horribly after 4 years. Have a lot of friends whom I met online and have long standing relations with (non-sexually) and one whom I do have interest in, but due to current circumstances, such a thing isn't feasible right now if it will ever be. So long as we remain friends, though, I don't think I'll mind too much.

I have friends who are or have been happy in online romantic relationships, but unless I fell madly in love with someone I was friends with online and thought I could see them in real life at least sometimes I wouldn't even consider it.

In today's world, I think internet dating is better than sitting at a bar hoping someone looks your way. It's also better at getting the gist of someone before you bother with them in case it's apparent you wouldn't suit.

Sure, but you have to play it safe and think things through.

I voted other. I have done internet dating and met my current partner online. I was reluctant to be anything more than friends with him as we lived so far apart but I couldn't deny my feelings.
