Ok Well..Too many people saying negative things about online dating. And I am sorry for those who had some serious problems with it. But its not all bad. I met one of the most beautiful people I have known in my life through here. We dated for about 2+ years. We broke up starting of this year. But I still cherish that person and we do speak occasionally. Regrets? No..none at all. I treasure the time I spent with her but just that things did not work out between us. Also after being in LDR for the longest time when we finally met, it was that much more special. Yes there are problems, but then everything has problems. People in real life are not really better either and everyone has secrets.
My only point is..if you meet someone special and you feel a connection to them, dont give up on it just because your past experiences were bad. Give it a try and who knows what might happen. A fire can be started by just 2 measly stones striking against one another.
