Anybody use online dating sites? I'm thinking about it and just wondering who's had good and/or bad experiences...which sites...and anything else you'd like to share. Tell all...the good, the bad and the ugly.

Met my husband on okcupid. Had A LOT of first dates before meeting him. I felt much better after I learned to go into it with the mindset of meeting someone new and enjoying an evening out, expecting that it would be a first and last date, then pleasantly surprised if there was a followup. Many people are uncomfortable saying, nice to meet you but it didn't work for me. Much easier to cut off communication after the date, which can be depressing. Going into it solely to enjoy that one experience a nd nothing more, is much easier to deal with!

Met my husband on matchmaker.com I would never have run into him the normal way ( lived in different towns/ totally different work etc)
I dated a lot and Just had fun with it too ,.. Look at it like you are expanding your network and friends and you will be fine.
