I know there are a few questions that are sort of like this but I feel that it bears repeating.
How do you feel about on-line dating, I read an article yesterday that said there is a 77% rate of failure with these. Yet a co-worker recently got married after 6 months of being in a relationship that she met from on-line dating. She also had a bad experience with one. I myself jumped on the bandwagon as well and met someone who I absolutely adored yet our differences made it difficult. We are still friends. But after that my experiences have been anything but. I'm feeling this outlet is too glamarized by eharmony and whatnot and that it really doesn't work. Like the stats on the success rate varies depending on the sites you look at but really its a 20% success rate. which even though the participation rate has increased in recent years the success rate has not changes. It is one out of every 8 that finds someone and this doesn't include marriage. Just connecting.
Your thoughts? Boys and Girls please.

I don't think the stats mean that online dating doesn't work. There's probably a one in 8 chance for every way of meeting people. At work, at a bar, through friends, etc. I tried it once and it made me really uncomfortable. I couldn't pull the trigger and go on a date. But I know a few people personally that are dating people they met online.0
