  • At first thought, it seems like a good idea. You can be more specific about what you're looking for, and learn a bit about the person before you go out with them in person.

    But that's only if everyone is totally honest - and that's not really something you can count on. I've tried the online dating thing, and to be honest, even when the men I've met were honest, I've just never really found it to be that great an experience. I wouldn't waste my time doing it again. I'd rather wait patiently to find someone in real life. In the meantime, I'm just focused on enjoying my life, my kids, and the freedom that comes with being single.

  • I tried it when I was single. I met a few people for coffee or a meal, but nobody I really clicked with in person. But then I didn't really spend a lot of time with it either. I ended up meeting my husband when I went back to school - where I never expected to find anyone! (assumed they would all be too young/immature - I was in my 30s). I would look more towards finding fun stuff to do via or similar sites where you will enjoy yourself anyway but also meet a bunch of new people, and maybe that special someone who also enjoys your interests!

  • I met my husband online, but I wasn't looking for a relationship but for some friends.

    I think the key at times is to stop trying so hard and eventually it will happen if you go out and be social with people you have something in common with, ex. if you like hiking join a hiking group etc.

  • I tried it and met some very strange guys. If you're going to do it, be safe. Let someone know where you're going and when you'll be back, meet in a public place, and don't give out your address or phone number right away.

  • Get involved in groups that share your interests and see what happens. I have two friends who met their SO by using It is not a dating site, but you meet a lot of people with comomon interets. GL!

  • I have not used one but people at my job have had success. Two ladies have found their husbands on dating sites.
    I think it would be just like meeting someone in public. You would have to weed out the wierdos to get to the right one and always let family and close friends know about who you are meeting

  • You can find the right person anytime, one just never knows. Stay busy with the things you love and eventually you will meet someone special along the way. Until then, follow your passions. Why not stir up your own life in the mean time? I would start a bucket list and seek out some new hobbies, skills or dreams. It is fun to step outside of our "normal" routines and try something new.
