I have been considering it. I recently moved to the area and I work alone so I don't really have time to meet anybody. Did any of you already have a kid before meeting someone online?

I had three children when I divorced. At that time, my kids were VERY young, and I couldn't really get out in real world situations to meet people. I started looking online a few years later. I didn't go online looking to re-marry, but just to find nice people to do things with.

I have been contacted by scammers, losers, twenty-somethings (I'm nearing 50...), and men only looking to hook up. However, I have also found a couple of really nice guys, and my current bf, who actually lives and works in my community. Eventually, I would have met him anyway, which is really pretty funny. We have only been dating since September, but it is going really well. I think if you approach it with the right mind-set, it can be a good way to meet people. Just be careful. Keep your communication on the site until you are sure that the person is trustworthy. Meet in a public place. Let someone know where you are when you meet. And don't get in a car with a man until you know that his intentions are honorable. (Do I sound like your mother? Sorry.)  :-D.

I personally dont like them. Its amazing the creepy guys that are out there. I prefer the old fashioned way of running into someone at the coffee shop or with friends but since having children the whole thing has changed. I struggle to meet guys especially since I live in a very small town. Very intersted in other suggestions for dating/meeting good quality safe men. Will keep checking for  tips and suggestions.

Ive been doing it on and off for about 2 years.  I have no time to hang out in bars (not that i want to meet someone at a bar) so I meet them online.  Ive had good and bad experiences.  Dont expect miracles and ALWAYS be skeptical of what they are telling you.

I created an account on POF for a total of 20 minutes and then deleted it. Why? It just seemed fake to me and I recognized the serial daters from when my friend had a profile online.

I understand many have met their mates online, but for me, I just don't feel comfortable trying to communicate. But it's a different experience for all....so I say if it benefits ya, then go for it!
