Question Internet Dating?

Just curious!

Who has done it and would do it again, tell us your successful story.
Who has done it and would never in a million years try it again?

Like I said, just curious, not something I'm looking to do or anything, but I've heard some horror stories about it and was wondering if there is ever a good outcome.

And AHEM.....PNWR does not count as "internet" dating

I haven't done it but I'm willing to try just about anything once. I do know a number of people that have had good results doing it.

yes. i met someone on line once. we conversed for several months before he decided to fly from texas to washington to meet. unforturnately when he arrived there was just no person to person spark. there is something to be said for that incredible physical attraction that you can only experience face to face.

I think a lot of it might have to do with how much money is spent on the dating site. I had a buddy in LA that used a free one and got a bunch of nut job chicks, but also got laid a lot. That's what he was looking for. I know a couple people looking for somethig serious and paid good money for a dating site and had great results.

I haven't done it yet.
I don't think I'll pay for a service to get a date.
I'll let nature takes its course and let the universe intervenes to find a date.
I'll pay to go to a strip club.

:( This makes me sad.. I watched a friend go through a really rough break up.. and there were two children involved.. Broke my heart. My children have only met 1 person that I've dated.. I really don't care for them to meet any more until I know I'm in a relationship that's going to stick for a while.

I haven't done it but my best friend has. She tried Match.com and really hit it off with the guy she met and they've been together for almost 3 years now. That's the only success I've heard of.

Never done it before, but have a friend that did. Met her husband, still married after 5 yrs. So far, so good.
I'd consider it if I was dating.

i post sporadic craigslist ads to see what kind of responses i get from people. One of my requirements though is for someone to send me a recent photo of them so that i can see what they really look like and they're not sending pictures from 3 years ago when they looked good.

I just ask them to send a picture of them holding/reading a newspaper from within the last week. Shallow? Yes. Does it work? OH yeah.

Internet dating makes me laugh. I never tried it. I have set something up like dizzle before to see who would bite but it was nothing I would consider taking seriously. I have had friends and family try and they have had both good and bad experiences. My cousin has been married to her Match.com (we call him email man) for the past 6 years... they hit if off great. The others found a few stockers.

But I guess internet dating is like going to the bar. Who really knows the truth?

I met my current SO via an Internet dating site.

I was reluctant at first. I always felt like I'd just meet people while I was out doing things I enjoy. But when a friend convinced me to try it, I gave it a shot and found it to be mostly positive: You get to cut through a lot of BS and only deal with the people who meet your criteria (actually interested in dating, in your age range, kids/no kids, location, interests, drinking/smoking habits, or whatever you consider important).

Admittedly, there is different BS that comes with it, but as someone who is a bit shy about "putting myself out there" and slow to meet people in person, it worked well for me.

I used to frequent online dating sites. I never found "that person" on there, but I met some great ladies and made some good friends along the way, a few of whom I still stay in touch with even now.

I'm not using "the net" to search any longer because I don't have the need to.

I donno if I could do the whole internet dating thing personally but different things work for different people. My dad met a girl on a internet dating site and lived with her for a while till he passed away. So i guess it depends on the person really....

sure but I am finding quickly that each site has way different return ratios with the same basic info. .....
And just for fun, I used my friends photo, maxed the income, said I was divorced, currently unemployed, played guitar in my spare time, had a couple of kids, enjoys skydiving and rock climbing; mail box full of lil envelopes.
I really hate him, really I do.
