Also unrelated, but I scared of random people I know seeing me on there and thinking that I am desperate.
Are my thoughts in this valid? What should I do?
I wouldn't worry so much about them getting mad or jealous. If you've already told these guys that you're not interested, then that's their own problem for feeling that way if they were to see you on a dating site (if they had profiles on the same site).
Adding onto that, unless they had profiles on the same site, or knew you were on that particular one, I don't think you'd have as much to be concerned about there. I could be wrong. I don't know. But I personally don't see that being as big of a worry as you might think.
As for people thinking that you're desperate? That kind of mentality seems to have decreased a bit over the years as attitudes changed. I think more and more people are starting to realize that dating websites and apps are just another tool to meet someone. I was on a dating site specifically for Catholics until about a year ago and the reason why was simply because the kind of woman that I was looking for wasn't exactly the most readily available in my immediate area.
And if it helps, I actually think that some of these dating websites are starting to get desperate. Seriously, almost every week now it seems, I see commercials for free communication weekend on eHarmony.
