What are some of your opinions on online dating? Would you ever consider it?
online dating is how i met my hubby. met him on yahoo personals
The guy I'm seeing right now I met online.
i dont like it. i tried it before and to me it seems like every average mofo thinks they are the shit online. no thanks. but it works for some.
I have doe it befor but i will not do it again
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.
