What do you think of dating on the net. Have you ever tried it? What are good sites to go to?
No i have never dated on the net and do not intend to..In my opinion, its not trustworthy or safe. But some people seem to enjoy it ^^
It wouldn't work for me, who I'm after wouldn't be on the net enyway.
You're after aborginal tribesmen/women with no access?
And yes I HAVE met and dated people from online. In fact, I met my wife online.
i think dateing on internet is realy worst thing in the world because you cant see the mate. maybe you able to see her-his photos but it may be fake so maybe you will date with an alien... i realy dont trust to aliens... i hate alien bites.
It's fun, it's like arranging your own blind date . You'll see easily enough if you can get along with eachother, if so that's nice and you'll have a nice day together. In general it aint the best thing to hope for more or anything and in general both sides know that. Just about having a nice time .
I'm kinda scared by the whole concept. I'll never be able to do it. Not that I haven't known some really nice people on the net but dating, i think, will stay out of it. Anyways there are too many real people around me to opt for online dates for a long, long time.
I didnt date at all,
I only 14 years old
A bit more primitive than that...
Trust me, its not worth it! Besides, all the dating sites arent really dating sites anyway, most of them are find a sex partner sites.
Yes, I have it did not work... like most of my relationships
If u mean by dating on the net any means available then yes, as IRC or other chat platforms even if i didnt go there with the "lets go find someone to date" intention. Its good way to get to know ppl before u meet them, i wouldnt say its not safe or trustworthy, but maybe thats just couse i had positive experience. I even think that this its not safe opinion came just couse the minority of these experiences (that actually were bad) got much more publicity. And its really easier for some of us to start relationship this way.
I think that's precisely why dating online might be ideal. Lets be real here, most online singles aren't as beautiful as they might say, but who is? the net is a great place to really be judged for who you are inside before you're dismissed for you appearance. So unless you're a model or movie star, maybe you should be nicer to the aliens.
Okay, I think we all have had some bad experiences with internet dating. Most of them have to do with the people looking NOTHING like they do in their pictures. Well, this poor guy definitely has one of the worst internet dating horror stories I've ever seen...
Whew. Not pretty. If you'd like to read the climactic outcome, you can do so here http://www.ubersite.com/m/55373. It's a really funny read. In respect for this poor author, I'd like anyone who had a terrible internet experience to post it to this thread.
Mmm, a year and a half ago. A year ago my advise would have been something along the lines of this ... :
"Lets disregard the matters of security for a second, I don't need to remind you of the oft found problems in relations that have the level of anonymity that internet offers. Of course not, I also don't need to tell you about the problems of a relation with a different time management than what you would call "regular relations"; that would be silly since both of them are different, each one with quirks of their own. But I would say caveat emptor, specially for a long distance relation, specially if you don't take really seriously the painful problem of not being able to touch, hear and feel the other person. If you don't take into account the personality shifts from chatting, to actually talking and all the activities involved (i.e. the difference you can some times notice between a personality on-line and the same person when she acts normally). If you don't think about why are you actually looking for something in this format. If you don't do those things, caveat emptor (beware buyer) and caveat emptor even if you do. I wouldn't recommend it, but good luck."
The day is today. I'm going to marry the most wonderful, sweet, caring, funny, smart girl I have ever seen (and beautiful and terribly sexy as well, lucky me). I love her with passion and could think of nothing else than spending my life with her, to make her as happy as she makes me. It's corny, I know ... but it's how I feel.
I said "be careful" before and I'll say it again. It takes some special personality to make it work. Although to be honest it takes one for every kind of relationship. All can I say is, I wish you the best of lucks.
I did, I admit it is somehow exciting and full of curiousity! But maybe someday it would become a real dating and it maybe some lovers predicting...
I've never "dated on the net" but I've met (in real life) a whole lot of people through the internet. lol I got laid for the first time through the net!! god bless the internet...
yea but it was through a mutual friend from the real world
one of my friends is planning to start a friendship site..... but most of the free / paid scripts available are for matchmaking :p have to modify them for friendship
I dated on the net once, but I was really young (14 or 15, I think?) So I'm not sure if that really counts. I do have a few freinds that have dated over the net, as well, and all of them dated someone in California at one point in time (I live on the East Coast) It's kind of funny. Even my current boyfriend dated a girl from Cali for a few months.
umm..... doesn't it suck tho?
I used to, now I won't touch it. I have had more horrible experiences than good ones too. That was back when i was in high school and not many people had thier pictures on the internet. Tip: when she says she has big boobs, she's really fat. Finally, after 3 years of dating people and meeting them and all that, I had the most horrible experience ever. I will not speak of it to this day but it was alot worse than you think and you wouldn't beleive me if I told you anyways.
So its been 4 years and I'll close any unknown chat message and stay away from any sites. I'm not going through that again.
I haven't dated on net before
we couldn't get know the characters of the other
we may find it difficult to go with the other when data (I think )
I have dated people according to certain conventions. As telling you would be exclusive to those conventions which I have used I choose to refrain from disclosing for the emotional well being of others who might be otherly experienced.
No me not!!
Not really me I'd go to the disco or something but dating on web...neh..
Nope i dont need to , I did when i wasx like 11 -13, was quite funny actually. but i just think back and lol at the girls for asking me out on the internet >_> even tho they lived like in america

I'm 14 years old, so I don't date... And even when I get older I'm not planning to visit any of these sites... I'd try to get someone in real-life
yeah i have, but it didnt work out, and im never doing it again. it can be heart breaking at times..
I think that dating on the net has to be one of the dumbest ideas ever, It's almost like calling up some random number on the phone and dating whoever you reach
Heh, I never really had a problem with it. I just wouldn't do it myself.
I haven't and I have no real desire to. While it may work out "perfect" for some people, a lot of things are false and misleading. The internet can be a scary place, and the only thing I would use those kind of services for is to chat, not to meet anywhere, because I like talking .
I have friends who have dated/are dating over the internet(never met in real life, just know each other over MSN/Forums). I have no problem with it, they seem happy...I personally would probably never date over the internet.
I actually enjoy meeting people online...
the poster asked for some sites, so this isn't technically spamming right?
www.myspace.com <-- always a fun way to meet people
www.espin.com <-- used to be alot better then it is now.. its still interesting once and awhile
I actually met alot of people on espin and then just in chatrooms or things like that who I love to talk to online... it can be really enlightening talking to people from other places because you get an entirely different prespective on things because of where they live is usually alot different and the enviornmental factors are different, yet as different as you may think they are they are really still great people...
as far as getting fake photos, most of the time you can tell when yuo get one... so its not that big of a deal, well for me... but even not seeing people you learn to like them for who they are and then when you finally see them the looks take a back seat... no pun intended
