I've been on dating sites for two years now. I know, being on those sites can make a part of me pathetic and desperate.
Most people will judge and will tell you dating sites are nothing but crap. To be honest, I was so skeptical of it at first.. Unattractive and insane guys? Still.. But hey! The truth is, I am seeing a lot of great and decent men and women and we all both have this one dilemma, it is we're just not sure WHERE to meet the right person.
Of course, my very main reason of joining those, is to find my luck if I could meet someone right for me (even if it will take each of us oceans to know each other). Sometimes, some people just can't find the right one in around their place so they tend to look out somewhere. I know, it sounds very complicated but who knows right, sometimes beautiful things does happen, even in our least expected ways.
Through the days that I've been on those sites, I realized that it doesn't always have to be to find a date and to look for the right one. I am enjoying it because of the opportunity to have friends all over the world. I really got fascinated about it, to also see what else is there outside my reach. I thought that it is also fun and cool to know a little more about other people and the culture they are in. I am learning a lot I can say.
I also have to say, through those sites, I am learning to be more patient than I am before. I know a bit funny, but it kind of taught me that love always waits, really. It doesn't have to be to look and find for the one... Dating sites kind of turn that around for me, it's funny right, just crazy. I feel a lot content of just being single now. I enjoy having very good friends online and it makes me more somewhat being open-minded of a lot of things now. It's just great.
So yeah, that's just my story, I am here to ask you guys your thoughts and comments about this. Internet dating seems to be a common way for many singles to meet in the 21st..
Any positive or negative comments? I'd love to know your thoughts..

I met my now fiance on an online dating site. It was perfect because everyone I know is like " oh go to the club. go to the bar." and all that... well the truth is I'm not a bar/club type of guy. I mean I will go every once in a blue moon, but I mean if that's not me or my scene, and definitely not the type of people I would want to date (not saying they are all bad.. just not comparable lifestyles), then why would I do that? I've also been a really busy person since my early teens and never really fit in because if I wasn't in school, I was doing athletics... if I wasn't doing athletics I was either in school or sleeping. So even though I had a lot of friends, I just never really "got in" with any particular group of people. So in turn that led to not having a great chance of finding dates.. which led me to online dating. I've encountered some crazy girls that were like " OMG I LOVE YOU" after like 4 hours... and then I came across girls who just weren't my type.. or girls that completely lied about themselves. But eventually I found the girl I'm with now, and we plan on getting married within the next two years(waiting for her to finish university). All in all, I'd say the online dating experience was great.1
