I'm not sure if I want to try online dating or if I should just stay away from it. I'd rather meet someone off line but it seems like people don't really do that now days. Also, is it true that most people who online date are only looking for hookups? Because I am actually looking for a real relationship not just something casual.

I started online dating on OKcupid that's quite a big site you could try.
If you have a half decent picture then as a girl you will probably get loads of messages though perhaps not good ones as a lot of guys annoyingly take a carpet boom approach.
Guys have a reputation for looking for a hookup on online dating but I dont think thats actualy generally the case normally. I think were open to both but would prefer a relationship.0

i met my boyfriend/future husband on okcupid 2 years ago.
his initial message to me was sweet and funny, and he took a genuine interest in who i was~ i wrote back, and we talked through the site for a month before finally meeting in-person. our first date was magical, and we've been inseparable ever since. :) <3
some dating sites (like plentyoffish) have a reputation as "hookup sites", though your experience may be totally different~ one of my best friends is engaged to a girl he met on pof, and she's become a good friend of mine as well.
my favourite thing about okcupid were the questions you can answer. they're optional, and some are really personal/bordering on creepy ("do you have rape fantasies?", for example), but they really do help you find better matches.
most importantly, be safe and have fun!
