    Internet dating...someone for everyone?



    Okay, that's probably a bit inappropriate, but I giggled anyway.

    And it does have a point. When you're on the internet, you really can find just about every kind of person out there. It can be a lot to sift through, but if you keep an open mind and keep looking, you my just find your soulmate.

    For me, internet dating wasn't so great. I met lots of people, but not really anyone close to a match. It was an interesting experience, but eventually I went looking for love in other places. It could be that my expectations were too high, or maybe I just had bad luck with it, but in the end, internet dating didn't work for me.

    I am not into online dating because there are a lot of fakes out there. You still have to meet in person to get to know each other well. But I don't feel bad for the others who are into this. It just won't work for me.

    I am also not into online dating since hard to know who tells the truth and who tell all lies. Although it could be possible to meet a "real" person online, it will be hard. Maybe for those who really have the patience and the willingness to try his luck on online dating can find his or her someone through the net.

    Hilarious picture! Haha, not really one to attract one to the idea though. (-: I think that it can work for many, and I will remain open to it but I prefer the old school way of meeting someone a bit more organically. However, I will not say no...but no hippos, thanks. (-:

    That picture points out a salient fact of internet dating. That sweet young thing that you have been chatting up on line could very well be a hippo.

    hhahaha! sure enough! I agree that you might be very well find the "right" person off the internet if you are persistent and of course if you are looking at the right place. there are a lot of dating websites out there for sure, and a lot of niche dating sites also.

    I love the photo! Totally appropriate if you ask me!
    So internet dating for me was very successful. This will be a little bit of a different story because I started when the net was still a realtively new concept to the general public. I met someone online through Compuserv back when we had to put the phone on a cradle to connect to the internet. I know, I totally aged myself! I had a Kaypro II computer LOL!

    From there I bought myself a Mac in 1994 and started on AOL. I met several people. All great experiences. I dated a few people but I found "the one" that same year. He IM'd me and that was that. We spoke back and forth until he came up to see me. At that point, we knew that what we felt online was indeed true. For the last 17 years my husband and I have been together. We have a daughter and two little boys.

    I would like to say that my story is unusual but it is not. My cousin met her husband online via a dating site. I know a lot of people have met online. I love that you can meet someone from another country even!

    It takes time to cultivate a relationship online. Get to know someone well on the phone before meeting in person. And of course, always use safe online dating practices! I know there have been tons of horror stories.

    The internet can be a good medium for 'meeting' people but the reality is you are not actually meeting them, the connection is superficial. The only way to find a genuine connection with someone is through face to face contact and interaction. I think you are more likely to find someone for sex than a soulmate.
