I met DP on a dating site. I signed uo to meet new people. Met one guy who was a complete nut job. I met him for coffee and couldnt leave fast enough. I didn't recognize him at first because he looked NOTHING like his photo. I swore I'd never meet anyone off the net again.
But I kept chatting to some of the people because being a single mum I'd get bored at night sometimes. One guy added me to Facebook and it turns out my best friend had gone to school with him and his bother. A few weeks later he asked if I wanted to go to the movies cause he had an RDO and all his mates had to work/were busy. DD was at Kindy that day and i wanted to see the movie- so I decided to go. He was super nice and we got along great.
We are now engaged and have a 4 week old son.

I have 2 girlfriends that have had some success. 1 met her DP in oasis active 2yrs ago and they are currently happily living together. 1 has had 2significant relationships with guys she's met on RSVP and continues to Internet date now. Her main rules are to only chat online for a short period of time before meeting irl, only to meet for a coffee or drink in a public place and always meet not get picked up at home or work until she's 100% sure on them.

I met my now husband through Facebook!!! He worked with one of my cousins. My cousin was stalking my page, DH walked into their shared office and liked what he saw! He then stalked me for a few more months until the right opportunity came along for him to strike up a convo with me on my cousins status. My cousin recommended that we become friends, we did and started chatting. I flew up to meet him in person 4 months later, we hit it off. He then moved states to be with me, two years after we met we got married. We've been happily married for 9 months and now have our first baby on the way!!!

I've had both good and bad experiences with meeting people online.
One i dated for a few months, only broke up because he had to move away for work and i wasn't ready to move from my parents (was only 18).
One i dated for 2 years, (my DD's father), and although i have my gorgeous daughter from him, i regret that first meeting because of all the negative stuff he put me through. He was controlling and abusive, a total a$$hole.
The last i met is my fantastic DH! I met him on the net through his cousin who i was talking to on the net (lol) while trying to avoid the cousin one day. Best descision i ever made was asking to talk to DH
I have a few friends i've met online and the biggest thing i found is that people only show what they want you to see, a bit like in real life, but on the net is so much easier. Protect yourself when meeting anyone, don't give personal info like phone number or address (don't give work info either), if you meet with them, meet in a place like a busy cafe or shopping centre where there are lots of people around. I had one guy who added heaps of my friends on facebook and started hassling them because i stopped talking to him, he even went to my parents (on facebook) and was telling them heaps of bs about me.

I'm slow off the mark but wanted to add I met my gorgeous DP online - RSVP actually. I'm not into clubs & pubs and lived alone at that time so got lonely sometimes - it was more to chat to someone interesting than anything! He contacted me, I told him I was only interested in being his friend as there is a decent age gap, we went and saw a movie and I promptly changed my mind. He is an absolute spunk, the most fun, kind and intelligent man I know. He's the best thing that has ever happened to me. We are expecting our first baby in 5 or so weeks.

Tried it. Met some lovely exp and some crazy loony people. The key is done give anything away when chatting on line at first and when you meet in person, make sure its at a public place, neutral ground with people around.
DP and I met online, not internet dating but same car club and diff states. Its almost 3 years now.
