As per the title...
For some reason, I would still like to meet guys in bars/clubs opposed to the internet..
AND I would be embarrassed to say I met someone via the internet...is that just me having a stupid hang up?

It is a stupid hang up.
I'm actually in the midst of doing a large, comprehensive review/study of internet dating and the sites that provide the service.
It's amazing to me how there is still a stigma attached to it in the United States, but most all other countries embraced it from the start.
I will say that the trend in the US suggests that more and more people using it, and that there is a reasonable success rate as well.
If you think about it, it makes sense that internet dating become popular, because we are spending more and more time using the internet, particularly social media channels, which let's face it, are entrees to something like internet dating.
And especially from the female point of view, meeting guys at bars or clubs is getting to be more dangerous than any other form of interaction. With the widespread use of drugs like Rohypnol, and the amount of sex crimes being committed at clubs or nearby, the idea of being able to guard against a potential aggresor by way of the internet is becoming more appealing.
But in the end, it all comes down to individual choice.2
