    I tried it at same time

    as a co worker for a bit of a lark and not expecting much if anything. With a few weird experiences to say the least I met my soulmate. Still strong four years later and been married for 6 months.

    I was so infatuated with a guy I met on the

    Internet. He said all the right thing but turned out he said the same thing to every girl. I was young and naive

    ~ Creepy Funeral Guy ~

    I've been in and out of my last relationship for a while now and not too long ago I joined an on-line dating site.  I know ~ hangs head in shame ~ Most experiences have been pretty uneventful.  I've met a few nice men in what have become known to me as the 'awkward meet n...

    Actually a funny story.

    GUYS, do not judge me for this, I was only 11 years old. I met a girl on a forum called gaiaonline.com. I messaged her and we chatted for HOURS. After those hours I told her that I might start liking her, I was a really ******* romantic 11 year old and she's all "Aw I think I...

    Internet Dating- How Exciting

              A few years ago, I opened up an account on an online dating website. I needed to expand my horizons on my social life when it comes to dating. Since I haven't been successful with meeting somebody in college, I was going to...

    I think I will give up on online dating.

    All the guys want is sex. Mostly one time sex. I don't get it. If it is good, why pull the disappearing Act? I'm very angry right now. How pathetic is it to "endure" 15 dates for 1 night of booty, ????!

    All Dating Is Really About The Same.

    So instead you use a computer, who doesn't use one everyday? After a 3 year relationship ended rather devastating for me I wanted to give the world of online dating a try and at the same time continue conventional dating. I was in college, working and lived on my own so online...

    I've had a lot of success

    and quite a lot of badluck with online dating. I remember joining POF and met some real doozeys. The first guy was great but had to meet a day after chatting.. I declined but he pursuaded me to meet.. So we went to a hip cafe. It was fine and we decided to catch up again for...

    I've always wondered about it.

    .. Why do some guys post pictures of themselves with so many different girls; especially if they are trying to find a serious date/relationship? I just don't understand... because it makes you look like a womanizer... (my personal opinion... especially when you're constantly...

    For anyone who has tried it,

    what's your funniest story? Here's mine. Talked to a guy, seemed ok. Saw his pic. He was just an average guy but I wasn't looking for George Clooney. He stated he was 5"7 and "a few extra pounds." I don't mind a few extra pounds, in fact I don't like skinny guys. We talked on...

    Epic fail. People are

    so shallow. Someone could be another's Ms. or Mr. Right, yet because they aren't drop dead gorgeous or built like a Playboy bunny or Body Builder, they get passed over without anyone even bothering getting to know the person on the inside.

    A Nightmare Fron The Cyber World

    I found myself a widow before I ever thought I would be one. We were married for 30 years and the best of friends. It took me three years to get past the crying, sadness and emotional issues of being left behind. One day, even though, I was still sad about his death, I decided I...

    So I met a guy online a couple of months ago,

    Oh yeah! I'm lucky that I found my one love.

    We're still dating for about 10 months.. We haven't seen each other in personal. We're just talking through Skype, iMessage or FaceTime. He lives in California, and I live in Florida.

    Another Long Ago Story

    This wasn't internet, it was chatrooms for those of you who remember them.  This gal on line kept chatting me and one thing lead to another, we were supposed to meet.  The thing that bothered me was the ID, "Bob's towing", they assured me they were a girl, but...

    I tried it. It sucks.

    You can meet reasonably interesting people but no one truly worthwhile. It is a waste of time but helps pass the time when you are bored.

    Several Times

    Different sites, different ideas, and so many others; however, they have never worked even though I have tried a few twice. It can start out good, but die off really quickly (even those that are free). I feel like I simply don't fit in with people's expectations or that the...

    I never had luck with them in the past, but I recently tried again. However, I made one rule for myself. If I'm ignored 50 times, I'll delete my account. I've got 8 more to go.
