I'm certainly going to try it next year when I move. I know my sister met her husband online, and I have a friend who has a boyfriend that she met online.
Just wanting to learn more about other peoples' experiences with it. Did anything come out of it for you?

The hot women don't reply. Unless they're one of the abundant catfish.
Also, it's TMI. I usually get turned off early on because I discover some turnoff thing the other person likes.
I arranged a hookup recently. It was pretty good, but since it was a sex-themed site, my approach was that it was mainly sex. My hookup seemed to get a little attached, which was probably partly my fault because of the way I act.
So for me it was a one-time thing, but she wanted to meet up again, and I rejected her, and now I feel weird and guilty.0

My personal experiences have been pretty bad. Talked with many, met a few that mainly just wanted sex. If they claimed they wanted a relationship, and showed interest, it was nice and all -- until I found exclusivity wasn't to be had while they still continued to search for dates. I'm fine if that's what both people agree to do, but when someone point blank says, "You know, I only want you, I'm going to close my profile," -- but does not, and in fact continues fishing, that tells me right away that I'd potentially be with a liar.
This happened, after one week of a guy telling me this after going out a few times. I agreed we would close accounts, and I would be inactive until I saw he closed it, then I would deactivate mine. But no. Here's how it went:
"You haven't closed your account."
"Oh. Yeah, well I don't know how."
"No problem, I'll show you." *gives step by step instruction*
"Okay thanks, I'll close it."
(Another week later, still not deactivated, and profile shows changes to pictures and other activity to show there has been contact, i. e. "Winks" "flirts" given/received.)
I know the Internet has done good things for people like your sister, but the Internet also creates a lot of ability to fly under the radar with the comments made, and rotten anonymous behaviour. I didn't trust it. I have friends who met their matches online, and I really don't know how they did it. I guess I'm too skeptical, always thinking it's too easy for people to be up to something, and in a lit of cases, they actually were.0
