    Default Internet Dating?

    Anyone here done it? I am just curious about the positive and negative experiences people have had with it.

    I've only just split with XDP so not looking at doing it anytime soon, just wondering what peoples' experiences have been!

    Yes! Me. I met my DH online. We have been married nearly three years. We have a wonderful marriage. He's my best friend. So I'd say that's a success for Internet dating! Our families get along etc etc. really was the best thing I did.

    I 'dated' a few guys I met online for awhile but they all ended up just as FWB and lasted 6 months at most. I dont regret it though. It was a fun experience and Im good friends with one of them now.

    Me! I met up with two guys for dates through RSVP, one was a dud, the other I've been with for 6 years and happily married for 2 with our first bub on the way. For me it took all the weird 'chatting' up away and made sure that I'd assessed we had enough in common to keep conversation going.

    I have done internet dating.. am married to a guy I met off the internet four years ago and we have 2 children now.. It was the way I liked to meet guys as I'm not into night clubbing or anything and I'm on the shy side..

    I was with a guy I met off the internet for 3 years before my n ow DH.. I basically fell for the guy before I met him.. our first date went really badly and I just wasn't attracted to him and he freaked me out... because I liked him so much online I gave him a second chance and second time round was better.. I should have listened to my first instincts.. he ended up being a wife basher..

    My suggestion to anyone doing internet dating would be to chat to them online first and get to know them but don't do it for ages otherwise you could end up like me where you fall for them online and then find out they're completely different irl..

    The thing I liked about internet dating is you can sort of make sure you meet people that don't have things you don't want.. e.g. when I was looking I made sure the person didn't have children (no offense to single parents.. but I didn't have children at the time and I didn't want someone who smoked or liked drinking all the time.

    I tried it but it's not for me. I think I am too judgmental - the things people write on their profiles just always seemed really boring or stupid or both. Sooo many little things put me off, although I imagine if I had met some of these people in real life first and I got to know and like them, the fact that they didn't know the difference between your/you're, or the fact that they used cheesy cliches and said they were looking for a "classy lady", or the fact that they had terrible taste in music wouldn't bother me so much. But when that information is presented to me first, I'm like "next!"

    Dunno how I feel about Internet dating... I couldn't commit to a relationship with someone who I haven't met in person before..
    BUT saying that I met my now DF 4years ago on Facebook. He was friends of a friend, he added me and I ended up meeting him and then a few weeks later he asked me out and we've been inseparable since now with a little bub on the way.

    So you could meet a bunch of people from the net and see how things go, but I'm not overly convinced the 'having a relationship with someone you've never met' for eg interstate or in another country but who knows it works for some!

    Never done it and never would! My good friend has done it, she met some real weirdos and found that most of the men she met on there didn't even use their own photos, she wasn't amused when finding this out on dates

    My sister met her husband on RSVP.

    I met a guy off there. He was nice and we dated for a bit, then his best friend fell in love with me and it all went sour

    Awkward!!!!

    I met my first BF on the Internet 10 years ago, (very taboo then!) he's a lovely guy!

    But that was on MSN chat rooms not RSVP.

    Pretty sure MSN chat rooms have been shut down because of to much dodgy stuff...hmmm

    I'd be more inclined to on a RSVP type site as opposed the adding randoms on Facebook approach.
