  • I have a few friends that it did work for and then I have a couple that it didn't. I think that when you go this way, you have to be really careful how you projecct yourself to that other person so that they know exactly what and who you are.

  • i think it's pretty pathetic if you're so socially challenged that you need a dating site to meet people

  • yea i mean i can work but instead of looking for something serious look for guy friends and im sure when u are friends with some one in person u can see if it has potential to become more. i know this because i helped my best friend find a husband online lol she is happily married for 3 yrs lol best of luck!

  • I've never tried online dating but I think it works, we are in a new day in age where everything is done via computers/phones etc. You can meet the same crazy people at the corner store. How would online dating be patethic Anon...? It's no different then you being on cafemom which is a social website to meet other moms.

  • IDK.
    My MIL met her hubby about 8yrs ago from those newpaper dating thingy's... They are doing good.
    I couldnt believe my MIL looked in those. lol... she just a normal "jane".. IDK when u think of newspaper dating you think of hook ups & stuff like that... But they both are your very average "joes" ....
