I'm 20 and newly single (out of a 2 nearly 3 year relationship). To be honest, I'm heartbroken, but that's because I think he's perfect in that he's the only guy who'll text me through the day, spend the night cuddling up to me, put me first etc, when I'm sure that's pretty normal relationship stuff (when you like each other at least). I don't know that though because I haven't had that experience, I'm hoping it's true. Plenty of guys make moves on me at bars/clubs, but they just seem interested in one-night stands, which I'm not or talk to me but don't have the balls to ask me out. Do you think internet dating is a good idea for me?

I think that you need to get over your past realtionship before trying dating again. You are really young and I think that it will do you some good to be young free and single for a while and at least until you get over your ex.
You need to use this time to do the things that you want to do, go out and have fun with your friends, keep your self busy and this will help you to move on and also gives you the chance to meet someone else when you least expect it.
A healthy relationship is when you love, trust, care and understand someone. When you are willing to do things for each other, be there no matter what and can work on any problems which you are having. If you do not have communication with your partner everyday and you spend time apart it does not mean that things are un healthy, it actually means things are going well and that you have a strong bond and trust. There are too many people in this world that forgett their friends and spend time and contact their partner 24/7 and this is not healthy.
When you are ready to move on and have been single for a while then I think internet dating can be the way forward. Lots of people have sucess with it and I have got on well with it. You just need to remember to be careful and remember there are some people on them who lie about who they are. If you do it make sure you don't give out any personal details and if you meet with someone make sure it is in daylight and somewhere public and make sure a friend either comes with you or knows where you are and call them to let them know that you are ok.
But from what you are saying you clearly are not ready to date again and need to have time to move on and be single.0
