    How  is on line dating?

    I hear of many people meeting the person of their dreams online.   I have also heard even more that only meet strange people male and female alike.  Do you have any experience with online dating?

    Everyone out there does it. People just accept that it is a way to meet these days.

    If you are careful about it, it can be a very good way to meet people who otherwise you may never have come in contact with. There are some crazies out there so you do have to be careful, but there are also some very nice people. I am speaking from experience on this one smile

    I have. Stay away of the free ones. Those are where most of the creeps hang out. You get what you pay for. The ones that charge money you know those people looking for someone are serious. Free ones are just a place for others to get quit pick ups.

    I know a fair few people who are happily married to people that they'd met online. I tried it once; met the guy and never again!!!

    It's not where you meet but whom you meet that counts.
    The same people you meet online go to the grocery store, beach, movies, parks, gyms, malls, nightclubs, church, and any other place you would normally meet someone. As Shelia Lee alluded to not all dating sites are equal. Oftentimes it's a case of getting what you pay for concerning quality of people.
    According to some reports 1 in 5 marriages today takes place between people that met online. I suspect that number will rise significantly over the next 10-15 years. Much like the fear of using a credit card to make online purchases several years ago...etc People eventually embrace modern technology. Having said that (meeting a stranger has always come with risk). It's very important to use good commonsense.
    People are too quick to trust people they are "attracted" to. Trust like respect should be earned overtime. I have had relationships with people I've met online that lasted up to 7 years.
    Awhile back I wrote a hub offering some advice regarding dating websites. … ine-Dating

    Okay, I do have plenty of experience with this, and I've noticed that CREEEPY OLD MEN hit on young, good looking girls.  A lot.  My advice is to avoid "dating sites" like the plague.  Don't do it.  On the other hand, social networks like Facebook tend to show you a person from the inside out; you see their interactions with other people and the world, over long periods of time.

    You can meet alot of people online who you would probally not have had a chanch to meet in person. Also if you have met the person,but dont really know them, you can learn alot more about them online, and if they interest you you can date, or hangout for a while. I have never actually done online dating, but i have met people online.  The key is getting to know the person first, and then asking them to date, or hangout. A lot of times the person may seem introvered at first when you meet them, but with time they become comftorbale, and start acting like they did online. Some people are just super outgoing, and their online personalities are their real personalaties as well. I have met some cool people online.

    It's not really where you meet the person.. it's the person that counts, I dated a man for two years. We met online through friends.. and regardless of it being over... I can say it was the best relationship I ever had. Very healthy indeed. and it was finished because of distance. So I can say that if you meet someone you like.. why not?
