I know its 2011 and online dating is more common than 10+ years ago but who is really okay with admitting to joining or wanting to do it? Does it make you feel or seem like you're desperate or like you're not good enough to find someone the old fashion way? Do you feel like paying a company to help you find your mate is pathetic or okay?
I'm the type that would NEVER want to admit to my family if I ever met someone online. Call me old fashioned but I am the one who would feel like a loser if I had to pay a website to find someone to date. It is very hard to meet someone these days though and I will admit I did join Plenty of Fish BUT the guy selection is pretty bad!

Been a member of OK cupid and plenty of fish. Got a few phone numbers but most of the girls I've talked to were weird. It's free. Pay for what you get. Never arranged a date.
Also, people on dating websites base their impressions heavily on your physical appearance. It places the importance of knowing someone on something they cannot control.
It's better to meet people through social avenues like church or volunteer activities. At least at that point you already have something in common2
