If you have then tell me which site, how long it took to find someone, and anything else you might want to share.
Most Helpful Guy
I know some who have, yes.
One coworker met his wife online, she's an attractive lawyer, pretty nice too, and mainly pursued him.
Another guy I worked with did a fair bit of online dating when single, he got tons of good women.
Both guys were very able to pick up in real life as well, and did so.
Both used lavalife. I know people who got dates through plenty of fish, but here in Toronto at least, that seemed ... not as good.
The guy I know with the most success:
- had a great profile reviewed by several female friends
- had photos of himself 'out having fun' including some shots of him with mixed gender friends ('see, I'm not a psycho sitting in a basement')
- would ask women whose profile he liked out IMMEDIATELY for coffee or a drink. Tons of women on those sites are just enjoying the attention, if they don't know if they want to have coffee with you, they're not serious or not interested in you.
- he'd sign up at a pay site for 1-3 months, and basically be setting up like 5-8 first dates a week. Yes, that many. He'd be spending an hour or two a night sending messages. But basically, he'd do that for a few weeks, and typically have a stead girlfriend at the end (who he had chosen, he'd have had multiple women after him).2
