So what do you think... is internet dating a positive thing or is it screwing us up? Should we still be meeting people the old fashioned way (the line up at Starbucks for example) in person or is sitting at a keyboard surfing profiles a good way to meet Mr/Miss right?

It is just another venue to meet people. One isn't better over the other necessarily. I don't have time for bars and no desire for random hookups. Online, through a profile, I get a better sense of what the other person is looking for before I even contact them/respond to them. When we meet for the first time, we already have a basic understanding of each other and what we may be looking for. I can avoid the guys looking for a hookup because it is generally apparent within a few texts.
That said, I also will give my number to someone who I am attracted to in a bar, Starbucks, wherever and see where it goes.
I have never been catfished online, so I don't know why everyone else seems to have been. Maybe I have been lucky that way.
it is just another tool to use to meet people, not really better or worse than any other one.0
