Online dating...is it safe?

I am a single mother wanting to get back into the dating scene. Do you think it's safe to meet guys from online dating sites like cupid.com or eharmony.com? Or match.com, etc?

  • Met my husband now on Match.com we've been married 5 yrs now. We chatted for a while , then talked on the phone for a month straight before we met. Dated for a yr and a half before we got married. Dated alot of Jerks from the net too. Just have to be careful as you would with any guy you met weather its at a bar or the gro. store. ( I started thinking about on line dating and that it couldn't be that bad Cause I went out with a guy I met at a Local bar a few times and then found out he was a child molester)
    Just take things show. As you would in any New relationship.

  • I met my dh online 12 years ago. As long as you're careful it should be ok.

  • As long as your safe, and use good judgement it's safe! Just meet in public places until you really get to know the person. Don't put yourself in what could end up being a bad situation.

    A close friend of mine (also a single mommy) met her husband on eHarmony. They've been married a few years now, and had another baby together!

  • I also met my dh online, so I think it is safe. Like the others said, just meet somewhere in public the first time.

  • I think as long as you are careful and use a reputable site it should be fine. My Uncle found his 2nd wife via online dating, and my bil met his 3rd wife that way.

  • I'm a single mother too. And I've met a few of my serious boyfriends online. To me, I can go out to a bar, get a guy's number or give him mine, and him just as crazy or a bad person as someone I met online. The only difference is, I know that that person looks like for sure.
