I'm a 24 year old school teacher. I recently moved to a new job and don't have a lot of means to meet people, especially girls. I've dated one girl since moving down here four months ago, but she ultimately ended up hurting me.
Since there's very few ways to meet new people, including dating prospects, I've considered joining online dating sites or even look into speed dating. My question: Do you think its socially acceptable for a 24 year old guy to be involved in speed dating or online dating? I'm typically the type to not care about what people think of me, but at the same time I don't wanna become socially strange I guess.
Also, has anyone tried this? Have you had good or bad experiences?

I think that it is absolutely acceptable to try various dating sites and even experience speed dating. I know a lot of people who found the love of their life online. Nowadays with our way of life almost everyone has at least one profile on one of the dating sites. I tried it and had a lot of fun. Of course there are different people and it takes time to find someone worth your time. But all in all you have nothing to lose. Even if you won't find your wife, you will meet amazing people. I am now trying free mobile dating app, which is lots of fun. I even have a link on my profile here, if you are interested.
