I am trying the online dating scene. I was wondering whay you guys thought about it. I will be safe about it and make sure I talk to the guys a while and meet in public places.

It worked for me. I met Mrs Turkey on line seven years ago, and we have been happily married for five years.

My tip - don't expect too much, and don't rush things - we e-mailed and talked for three months before we met face to face.

My best man was doing the dating on-line thing for about 2 years. Met lots of girls and went on several dates, none of them really worked out to be long term. He was just about to give up on it when he meet this new girl about 4 months ago.

They emailed back and forth for about a month before ever meeting. Now the two are very happy and she is already considering moving to CO to be with him.

I met Mrs. Jac online as well. I agree that talking with someone and getting to know each other for a while before a face-to-face meeting produces better results.

Another tip I'd offer is to not go to dating/singles online services or chatrooms. Search out some websites that fall upon your particular interests/hobbies/beliefs that include active message boards and/or chat rooms, and get to know people that way.

I have met two wonderful people online. Friends of course but hey you can never have too many friends. I did run into (never met face to face) one crazy one. Just be careful and don't rush things.

Just the mere thought of "Online Dating" sounds scary. Or maybe I'm just scared of the word "Dating". I've been single for three years now and simply focus on raising my children. Maybe after they are grown, I might consider it. They are my best friends. But I dont think I would ever go online to find someone. I would just leave it to fate. Hmmmm, maybe thats why Im still single.?

I think online dating can be great. Too many people just work and go home, so this gives them another venue to meet people. Of course, personal safety should be a priority, and I would be cautious of anyone who wants to avoid "public" meetings.

Way, way south.
I dated quite a few females from Match.com, Americansingles.com, Yahoo Singles, etc. (I figured if I was out there, I should REALLY be out there covering all bases, lolol). And I thought it was great. The worst thing that can happen if you do it intelligently (and safely for a female), is make some more friends.

What difference does it really make if you are dating online or in person. The main cause I have heard for not dating via internet is that you don't know if the person is being honest with you. My thought is that if a person is going to be honest with you, they will. (They can lie to you across the table just as easily as online, with the obvious exceptions of physical things.)

okay, I lied.
I was grabbing at straws.

But it was only because I'm afraid of losing you.
Of losing "us".
Of losing what we have.
Afraid of los.....hey! You still have your clothes on. What gives?

But seriously, online dating can be very fun and entertaining. I actually met my last boyfriend of 3 years online. I can honstly say he is a great guy and I wish him the very best. But you do need to be careful. A lot of people (male and female) are looking for a quick score.
