I met my wife and a longtime girlfriend online, so online dating can work. Both were long distance and I communicated a while with both before meeting them face-to face.

I met my current boyfriend of 5 months online and I also had another long term relationship before him with someone I met online. If I became single again then I would definitely consider OLD again...

Interesting what about what someone else said... I'm actualy the one that contacted my current boyfriend first! And I NEVER do that... I always thought it seemed desperate. But we are fantastic together. I couldn't be happier! :-)

A close friend of mine had resisted on line dating for years, considering it a "last resort for losers".

This friend has dated about a half dozen men in the last 5 years, men who she met while out or was introduced to.

I have to disagree that most women are ambivalent about OLD--the women I know who are on OLD are all on there to try to find a guy but are either not getting anyone interested or the guys they meet are jerks--you wouldn't believe the stories I have heard.

not responding at all is just rude..

i recently signed up and have been inundated with contacts, 90-950% of which are outside my specified demographic (10 years either way) with the majority being younger (weird).. like 21,22 yr olds... i'm 37 with kids. or
