Do you think the online route is a good option? Or are you skeptical? Would you ever try it?

I'm a tried skeptic. I don't think it is a desperate thing anymore and plenty of normal attractive people do it.
My issue is that you neverknow a person until you meet him and a guy can seem perfect online and then you can meet him and feel no chemistry. This guy I met online seemed perfect. Age that I like, similar background, smart, good job, and his descriptions were so much like me and the type of relationship I want. But unfortunately when we met, there was no connection. He liked me but I did not feel any chemistry or attraction. We did have a good mental connection and we agreed on many things but my gut just wasn't feeling it. Not to mention that unlike most people he looked better in photo than person. It was just uncomfortable for me.
So I think it is a bit like shopping. You can find many kinds of people but if you arelooking for aspecific thing it can be difficult. Plus I think it is pointless to wait a long time before meeting because you never know until you meet, no matter how great your ims are. Also, the ones I was interested in weren't the ones I got messages frm...I know I can be a bit choosy so online dating isn't great for me.
But, a girl I know met her husband on a dating site for their religion. And my friends cousin as well. And my classmates cousin with her serious boyfriend.
It definitelycan be successful but you have to be lucky. And very open minded. The less specific type of person you are seeking, the better experience you will probably have.1
