Are speed dating or online dating for losers, or the desperate?

Typically I ask philosophical and opinionated questions, but this time around I'm actually looking for advice, preferably from people my age.

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?
