Thoughts on online dating?

MzL MzL
OK, My sister in law told me that I need to get on Match.com and find a date. I've been divorced for almost two years, dated a few guys that were not worth my time, and decided I would not date because I felt I was more than a bed buddy. I've been without intimacy for close to a year. I just can't see paying for someone to hook me up to yet another potential loser? I mean, doesn't that seem a little desparate? Thoughts?

You could go with it and have fun but if it isn't something you are comfortable with doing--save your money. Enjoy your freedom, have fun being yourself and a relationship will happen when the timing is right. I know this is sooo canned and overstated, but it is true.

I absolutely hate it, but I'm doing it now, if for no other reason to self validate that there are men out there that want to pursue me. No dates yet, but I have a few on the hook, we'll see. Did I mention I hate it!

I wrote an article about it: Online Dating: The Cyber Search For Real World Love


I'm pro-happiness. I use online dating sites, and I see them as a good thing.

There are "free" sites that won't drain your bank account. Some of them you only have to pay to be "featured" or to see if someone actually read your message.

It depends on what you are looking for and how hard you are willing to try.

They're a risk, like anything.

I used to be skeptical but now I consider it like the modern day bar. I know there's a big ole stigma about not meeting people in bars, but tons of people in healthy relationships met each other at the bar. Why? Because it's one of the primary places where adults who are interested in meeting people/socializing go to meet people and socialize.

Now, the same thing is true for online dating sites. You endure what you don't like about because the fact of the matter is that's where a lot of single people are going now.

At the very least, you can give it a try (=

I think you have to be open to all possibilities. I met my partner of going on 6 years in an online game-room. Neither one of us were looking to meet someone online and I was fresh out of a very nasty relationship but we hit it off over a game of online pool without even knowing what each other looked or sounded like. You never know who's out there. My guy lived halfway across the country and now he's sitting next to me

I'm guilty of being an online dater... Made some great friends, been on-again, off-again with this one guy that I met on a site for a year and a half now. I can't knock it I guess...

Not for me. I need to meet the person face to face first.

I think that its a great idea for some, you just have to be open minded to it.

HORRIBLE experience for me. The guys they matched with me I had no clue how on earth the site thought we were compatible. I mean 0 in common, completely different lifestyles, and the things you learn about them on the dating site are not the "important" things (especially when people lie). I know people have had good experiences, but to be honest it was the worst mistake I ever made paying them my hard earned money for well NOTHING!!!
