How do you view guys if we go to online dating sites? Do you have a negative view of the person? Is it socially acceptable?
If the guys is in the late 30s, does it make any different?

In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with venturing into the online dating scene. And yes it is socially acceptable...Hello it's now 2010. Most people who do online dating have their reasons and for some they are sick of the bar/club scene, or they are just too busy with their jobs or life to go out and meet new people. From my own experience, I'm finding out that the guys online are also at the bars...so it just gives a different venue for potential dates and much cheaper when someone doesn't have to offer to buy drinks at first. With all of this said, you do need to use common sense and caution before agreeing to meet the girl/guy in person. Do your research on the web...google them, ask them if they have Facebook, chat with them on the phone several times, meet in a public place first, and most of all use your gut instinct. If the person doesn't seem to be who they are when you meet them, well, just don't plan on a second date or meeting. And you mention your age, late 30s, that really has nothing to do with it and doesn't make it different...but the older you are, let's say upper 40s, and you have never been married, then some red flags may pop up for some, as to why no one has married them yet, so there just must be something wrong. I have been doing the online thing for about 8 months now...some good, some bad...you just never know, just like in the real world! Best of luck if you decide to join an online dating site...at least set up an account and take a look around.0
