I'm 20, and I've never had a boyfriend. There aren't really guys around that I have any kind of potential with.
I feel lonely, and I want to change it.
Have any of you ever used a dating site? How did it work out?
Do you look down on people who use dating sites? I feel sort of lame for even seriously considering it.

For me it's the only way to meet someone.
Don't get me wrong, I go out to bars, clubs, parties etc, quite a lot. I never meet people that way though. I am usually with a big group of friends (girls and guys) and am never in the mood to be approached by someone, or never approach anyone. I don't go out to pick up, I go out to have fun and be with my friends. If someone approaches me I politely let them know that I am spending time with my friends and then carry on.
I choose online dating because you can chat to, and get to know someone without alcohol, and get an idea of who they are before going on a date with them, I feel that I have more control. I probably wouldn't go on a date with someone that I met at a bar who asked for my number, I am likely not going to give them my number in the first place.
Some people still see online dating as a little embarrassing, but there is no need to. It's becoming more and more popular and accepted, and I think many people choose to date this way.0
