  • I personally think online dating is pretty stupid. Something about weeding people out before even getting to see and know them just feels too "Big Brother-ish" to me. I used to have a lot of social anxiety too and tried online dating for a while because it got rid of the step that caused me the most anxiety (breaking the ice). Obviously you still have to break the ice with a match from a dating site but at least you already picked each other so my anxiety was diminished. Anyway, I hated the whole online dating experience. I was referred to a dating course website by a friend of mine and I chose the one that was tailored to what I wanted to improve on. It helped me out a lot and I've been dating my new girlfriend for two months now. You should check it out if you're serious about putting yourself into the dating world. Good intentions can only do so much but taking action is what really causes a change. I'd take the leap if I were you. Worst comes to worst you can cancel your subscription and be out a few dollars. It can't hurt.

    The website is ezdatingtips. com. Id check out the site cause they have some pretty neat information and reviews.

  • Nope, I do not find it stupid. I live in a location where I can't really find anyone I'm compatible with. Online I can actually find someone with similar views and interests. I'm also really shy so being about to get to know them first online will make it easier for me when we meet in person.

    • Exactly. Plus at least with online dating you'll know who's single and looking for a relationship, assuming that they're being honest.

    • Okay, I have no idea what happened to that last sentence.

  • Meh not in particular, I mean for one I personally have social anxiety so just going up and talking to people is not something i'm always able to do. My issue with it is the fake accounts and the general abuse of dating systems which people mainly seem to use for casual hookups which i'm personally not interested in.

  • No. I find random hookups at shitty bars and clubs to be very stupid.

  • Nope, I don't. I had one of my most fulfilling relationships I've ever experienced through online dating. Didn't regret any of it.

  • No online dating isn't stupid.
    But idea that you use it as a tool to 'design' your bf/gf is ridiculous.
    Really... you're browsing people as if you were shopping for a pair of shoes.
    There's a large portion of serial daters always thinking they can do better, by dipping into the big pool of people available, never ready to really commit.

    • It's a safer and less awkward environment to create a bond with someone. Everyone knows why everyone else is on there, it's honest and easy. Probably the best way I've ever began a romantic relationship.

  • no, I live in a small town, I go to church, it still very hard to meet new people otherwise

  • Nah the problem is people create false accounts and lie about who they really are. If it weren't fir that online dating sites would be great assuming they were free.

  • It's not stupid, some people are into it, some are aren't. I for myself have to look a person in the eyes to know them and be romantically involved with them but my brother has dated quite a lot of women after meeting them online

  • Some people date people that they would never though would have dated so it differently an eye opener it leads into a relationship and eventually marriage. A friend of mine has done it and it worked for her so. I guess it's a good thing.

  • Well apparently there are hot single Russians, Asians, Moms and many more that are interested in me and are in my area. So I guess if I started using a dating site I'd be set!

  • look, it works for some and not for others. i wouldn't do it. he'd have to be somethin else for me to even consider it. i just never imagined my love story playing out over the internet.

    i respect that it is the way to go for some people.

  • I don't get the point either. I've tried but I live in a huge city where you have a lot of opportunities to meet people. Sometimes it's fun to chat with people, but I think I only had one date that started on internet, I cannot measure chemistry online. Maybe some people can and that's fine, but I like the real thing, at some bar, club or through mutual friends.
