I have had no luck with it, really. I have tried paid sites and free ones and have made “connections” but nothing that has led to anything in the real world.
I do know people who have had success with it. My brother met his current girlfriend on Tinder and they are happy and have been for some time. She is a definite upgrade from his wife who he met the old-fashioned way, so this can be a great testament to the success of online dating. It just hasn’t had the same results for me. I have very high standards and the women who I am able to connect with online do not meet them. I have much better luck in the real world.

It is almost like a game of Russian Roulette.

I have heard of it working. Some of my family members have found love this way. My cousin met his wife this way and they have been married for many years. My brother met his current girlfriend online and she is great! They have been together for a year now.
I was still skeptical a bit until tonight. I just had the most amazing date off of an online dating match. It may not lead to anything (though I really hope it does) but this girl was awesome and we had a great time, so my faith in online dating is restored.

I reluctantly started online dating about 6 months ago. It hasn’t been that long but I’m not anymore convinced that you are able to find a meaningful relationship. I think that unfortunately it brings out the worst in otherwise good people sometimes because it’s so easy to keep looking for and expecting that there is always something better out there. I wonder if it makes us too picky and not really give people a fair chance. I find myself doing it which I never really did when I dated traditionally before. Maybe too many options is not such a good thing???

In my experience online dating caters towards introverts. If you are a shy or less outgoing person, this may be the route to go for you; (There are extroverts that use online dating…but they mostly use it as a way to hook up). it’s often difficult for introverts to meet people the “normal” way through bars and stuff. As far as successful lasting relationships, I feel like it is at least as good as meeting someone in person if not better…you have many more choices at your fingertips, and more information available to you before you even see their face in person.

All I got are all the shallow girls on there.

i just started online dating this year, not much luck with tinder but okc seems to be the best right now.

Finding true love through online dating is quite unconvential, yes, but it has happened before, so I can say that it is really successful. If you are thinking of online dating yourself and you want to find your future spouse there, you just have to be dedicated in your search. Do not give up easily if you still haven’t found anyone you are interested with after a day of browsing through profiles because ‘she’ may enter the site tomorrow, and you surely do not want to miss that, do you?

It hasn’t been worth it for me, but ojtside of time, I haven’t spent a dime. I’m actually curious how many of the people who found healthy relationship, capable people, were paid members.

It is such a frustrating thing because if you asked me to objectively try and come up with a list of pros and cons about online dating I would end up listing way more pros than cons. In theory it is fantastic. However, in practice I haven’t been as lucky and have not had great success. I feel the fact I can still logically call it good makes me think I have just been having bad luck, or I am the problem as opposed to it being the problem because it can definitely work. So I think it is an incredibly individualistic thing.
