How do I meet a guy online?
Picture with person! I feel like on-line dating is embarrassing but I really want to try it! Only because it seems unacceptable in my community...it's my stubborn side that wants to experiment. :P
ANYWAY! I want to start dating online but fear I may find a really obese guy who I originally thought was a johnny depp look alike..know what I mean lol.
Why type of questions do I ask?
What signs should I look for?
How do you filter the good from the bad? How do you know if a person is really romeo or a toad for life?
I want to find a long-term relationship and prove on-line dating works!
I usually meet guys networking through school work and acquaintances; but I want something new and would like to filter the ones I would not like after a week or two.

As someone who's taken a whack at online dating before, I highly suggest going through the more reputable sites - Match.com, eHarmony, etc - because they've got this down. These people only make money if their users are happy, so they've taken great stock it things running smoothly. (And they do have free versions)
Many of these sights allow for multiple photo upload, so a great way to know who you're talking to on the other side is to pay attention to the matches with a higher photo count. If all his has is a downward angle MySpace shot that's grainy and obvious posed, he's probably hiding something. However, if he's got a loose out and about photo, you're in for a better chance.
Also, if you end up meeting for a date and he looks like a toad? Don't call him back! Online dating doesn't mean the first guy you talk to is your new boyfriend. It's just a way to meet people who are interested in serious relationships instead of going through all the guesswork when you meet a stranger.
I wish you good luck!3
