I've done it and have been married to her for 11 years. Meet in yahoo chat room when it was new and fun.

Only for NSA stuff. I have a hard enough time getting to know the people I live around.

There's nothing shameful in online dating. I know that in my head, but it doesn't mean I'm not sometimes embarrassed. Though nothing will stop me from doing it! I've had some wonderful times!

I met my current and I hope permanent GF through an online dating site.

I find Internet dating so awkward, there's no natural springboard into conversation, other than the fact that you're attracted to the person's photos.

I do it a lot, though the longest - and most expensive - relationship I've had was about 8 months and I showered her with gifts because I'm prone to doing that apparently.

It's easier for me to find people online that I click with, for some reason. Doesn't do a damn thing for my sex life, unfortunately.

I did it and met my current boyfriend on it. I think if he and I broke up I would do it again because I'm an introvert and I would have no clue where to meet a guy that I had similar interests with. Honestly when you can lay it all on the table and say "this is what I like, what I don't like, here's a picture of me. Are you interested?" on a dating site it saves a lot of time. It just seems incredibly awkward to meet some guy at a book store or bar, both think the other is attractive, go on a date and then find out you have zero in common. Online dating if the person is honest and looking for a relationship cuts down on a lot of the BS. If I did do online dating again though I would definitely use a pay site. I used a free site last time and it was a miracle I found a decent guy because 90% of the guys on there were pigs. :p

Awwww! *hugs* I hate girls who do that! My BF and I have been together for almost four years and I still feel like a dick when I ask him to buy me things (only cause I'm poor and he has a great job, otherwise I'd buy my own stuff) but he buys me things if I ask him to or not at this point. But he had that happen to him where he liked a girl and bought her all sorts of things and nothing came out of it but a broken heart. Keep at it though you'll find an honest, nice girl some day who won't take your wallet for a ride.

I've done it before and had NO luck...the guys that were "selected" for me were AWFUL!!! I met two of them - hoping for the best and yeah there was nothing even remotely close to sparks. They were "weird" to put it nicely. I mean they were nice but we had nothing in common and lead very different lifestyles (ideas of fun were very different). They there were the ones that I was like yeah this could be good and never hear from them or hear back once and then get nothing. Very frustrating!!

Worked great for me, but I feel like him and I got lucky. There are a lot of dishonest people out there.

I'd meet someone online, yeah - I have lots of friends online and have even had some guys I know on the internet express interest in a relationship. I can't date someone strictly online though, or just based on online interactions. There's so much to attraction that's physical for me, like how they walk, or speak, or what they smell like, that you can't get online even with stuff like Skype. And I need to be able to spend actual time with them or it doesn't feel like a real relationship to me.

Basically, I see nothing wrong with them but they're not something that works for me.

I would never have a purely online relationship. That to me is silly. I don't see how you could love someone you never even hugged before. I would be willing to meet someone online and go on a date though.

My boyfriend and I didn't meet on a dating site but I would use one if I didn't meet him first. He lives in New Jersey and I live in California so I don't mind long distance.

I'm new at it, but I am currently using online dating. I just haven't had a date yet though.

I've tried it twice, but I didn't like it. The only people who were ever interested in talking to me only wanted NSA hookups, while I was actually looking for a relationship or a few dates.

I know something like this i probably wouldnt be able to handle, it would just be too much but some are ok with it. Personally I dont see a problem with it, but its just not for me

If I were single I might try it, but after watching the show Catfish...I would be very careful.

I thought about it but i'm pretty paranoid and think that they'll tie my up and lock me in dungeon(its the never let me out part that bothers me) or murder me

Absolutely not.

All of my past long term relationships were online, and they were disasters. It felt like someone I was just friends with. It seems like a leech on my life, in terms of time and they block my way of getting with other people who aren't open to poly

Refuse to be in one, unless it's with someone I super super love, in which case I might classify it more as long distance than online

I would do it if I were not in a relationship currently

I met my ex husband due to internet dating and the guy I am seeing now is because of internet dating.

I've used the Internet to meet other guys, but I've always had it in the back of my head that the other person could be misrepresenting himself. Better to keep that in mind until you are able to meet the other person in person.

I couldn't be in a relationship with someone unless I met them and hung out with them for a while. People are a lot different face-to-face than over the internet!
