  • Man I don't know. Everyone I know would probably hide that sort of thing from others. Maybe 10%?

    Never met someone online, except I have had a couple girls add me for pleasant and flirty conversation on like Myspace and Facebook.

  • According to a recent study, one in five relationships start online. It isn't just for geeks any longer.

  • I only know one or two people who have met their spouse/significant other online. The commercials for Match.com say one out of every five relationships start online. I honestly don't know much about that.

  • Well the thing about online dating is, you get all the creeps in the world knowing about you. There's also people like me who don't care for their online persona and will toy around on these sites for a bet with a friend. Expect to do a lot more weeding through a lot more pervs and jerks. I'd say about 80% of the guys on these sites are just looking for hook-ups.

  • Yes it is very prevalent. I see nothing wrong with it. I would guess 20 % of people date online?

  • I'd say a lot of people have tried it at some point to see what's out there. I don't think many relationships end up lasting from those encounters sadly.

    • Why wouldn't they?

    • A lack of connection possibly. Also..it sounds terrible but so many of the men on the dating sites are really oddball types or simply looking to find a quick bootycall type of thing.

  • I'm not sure. I always thought it was reeeeally weird and dorky, but I actually met my boyfriend of two years online. I think it's becoming more common than most people think.

  • Hmmm I'm not sure when I consider it among an entire country.

    I've dated someone online seriously before. We had plans to meet but they failed because he was an immature, self absorbed a**hole who was obsessed with getting laid; then he couldn't even get screwed.
