Dating sites are no longer considered as a last ditch attempt to find love. Some see it as a convenience, due to a fast paced life they can browse at their leisure and choose those they feel are compatible without going through the hoopla of small talk. Some see it as an extra resource to meet and match - they don't use it to keep them from socializing. Some use it as a networking tool, a fun way to pass time with someone that may have common interests with and an opportunity to get out.
For some, it's the only way to go - you don't have to put yourself out there night after night - you can pick and choose like a buffet. Of course, as with everything in life, you will have problems, but I don't see it as creepy or desperate.
If I were single, I would peruse the dating sites or classified ads for a potential date. I would know that whomever I chose was single and willing to go out. Sometimes it's too much trouble to be on the lookout for my future ... whatever. At least with a dating site everyone is pretty much like-minded. They all want to find someone.0
