I don't meet anyone new during my day to day, and I don't have any friends at the moment (sad right? ;) so I don't hit up bars on my own.
I've been using a dating website to get dates lately. Aside from using the site to introduce myself, it's been really successful and typical. Usually we'll set a date to meet for coffee after a few messages (I'm a face to face kind of guy). Its actually a lot of fun to browse and contact them, and it works out great.
But people are always weirded out by the fact that I'm meeting women this way. It's actually been a really positive thing for me, and I'm able to walk right up to other women now and talk to them without issue. And I'm not a shut in, I go to the gym daily and I'm in a coed sports league for fun.
So meeting online, is it still pathetic if you're a confident and outgoing person who just doesn't like to go to bars alone just to meet women?

I don't see anything wrong with it. Times have changed. The whole process is a little more risky from the female's point of view, but if she's cool with it I don't see why it's a problem. My only suggestion would be to not get so invested that you begin living an "internet life." A life where you completely overlook anyone in reality and only see potential when you're behind a computer screen. You may meet the right girl walking down the street!
As long as you keep it balanced then keep doing what you're doing. It's making you happy and getting you dates. People just need something to criticize and complain about when they're bored and/or insecure. Don't pay them any mind. The haters make you famous lol1
