I've never used an online dating service, but have been looking more and more at it ever since my 2 closest friends in high school both informed me they met their current girlfriend/spouse through them. I graduated from college about a year ago, broke up with the girl I'd dated most of college 6 months ago, and have since realized I really am not meeting very many eligible women at all since then.
I don't want to date a coworker (though there definitely seems to be one interested), and what few girls I meet outside of work generally I have very little in common with. Why is it then that when I mentioned to my roommate I might make a match.com account that I got laughed at and told to 'grow a pair'? It's not the actual dating that's giving me difficulty, it's the meeting the right girl so far that is...

If a woman is relying on "match.com" its because no men are approaching her and she is low quality. Just for kicks I would go to "Speeddate.com" and say dumb sh*t to the clients there such as "My wife recently died" and after they would say "Oh I'm sorry", Id say "Yeah, five minutes ago"! I would look at who was availabe and seemingly all the women were of low quality; the men on that same site seemed to be your average joes though. When I see a hot lady I want to hump, I just approach her and chat her up. And if you DO see a hot woman on a dating site, chances are its just a stock pic to make you say something like "See, hot women use match.com also". Work on approaching women and forget about crap like match.com.0
