    I find it ok, however spurts of being on and then coming off are a good idea as it can get frustrating and boring.

    I’ve found that each dating site brings a different common thread with the type of people I meet. Tinder is usually shorter term and more fun oriented personalities. Match tends to have people in the mode of actively pursuing a relationship. OKCupid is full of interesting people but they seem to be unsure of what they want. POF are your toe-in-the-water online daters. My personal favorite is Coffee Meets Bagel. Its one a day so I don’t waste a lot of time searching through profiles impacting me emotionally along the way. But these are just my personal experiences.

    Well we can not neglect the benefits of online dating. I did dating lots of times with india.proximeety and always get good friends there. But yes few sites also available there where you can not find any thing.

    I think it’s quite successful if you do it right

    It works if you can get along with each other and trust each other.

    I have met many women online and find it is a great way to give yourself more options. From my personal experience I have found that it’s hard to find meaningful relationships online but I have had it happen once. I don’t think it is any easier offline but maybe women put up a bigger guard when meeting online.

    I have used online dating sites before but I finally had to just give up. I met some really nice guys and then some really weird ones too. I ended really liking one of them. We dated for about a year. He would not commit though which I just could not deal with. We had so much in common and also got along really well too. It seems like there are a lot of those types on those sites though. I don’t know about everyone else, I do not like getting my heart broken all of the time due to never feeling good enough for these men to settle down with. They always seem like they want to date me too but are looking for better. I am not all about looks… All as I want is a man who is nice to me, takes care of himself, fun to be around, genuine and loyal. This is the way that I am and have always been in the relationships that I have had in life along with one marriage. I am also an attractive woman too. I don’t get it!

    Well, I guess everyone will tell you a different opinion based on how it went for them. Life is a matter of experiences and online dating can be fun and relaxing. I would suggest the following:

    1. Take it easy, enjoy meeting people and listening to different perspectives.
    2. It can a nice way to practice and/or learn a foreign language.
    3. You can meet people from the comfort of your home without going anywhere.
    4. Meet people from every single corner of this world.

    Nowadays online dating are just guys who wanna hook up. That meaningful lasting relationship is pretty rare.

    I’ve been in an online relationship before. He flew half way across the globe to be with me. This may sound like the perfect beginning of a romantic story, but it really wasn’t. I found out that he has bipolar and he lashed out at me on one of his “episodes”. Man, it was a nasty breakup.

    Online dating can really make someone want to stop dating for good but if your willing to take the time and put in the effort to filter through there could be a diamond at the bottom of the gravel pit. I haven’t found him yet but I’m still hopeful.

    I gave up, thought I’d stop out here one last time and see if I can get the hopes up or find some new ideas.
