I don't mind those sites. Some people might find that route easier for them to connect with others but I don't think it's for me.

There's one thing I rant about though. The site called chemistry.com is very misleading. Where's the solutions manual to my chemistry problems?

Big mistake to do in my opinion. I don't see how people can go on dating sites. Seems desperate & dangerous. I'd rather go to gatherings & to a friend's party & go mingle or something versus spending time talking to an anonymous person online who could be incarcerated for all you know.

Yeah that is generally the biggest concern for those people who don't agree with it. However, the uncertainties may not be all that different compared to meeting an actual person. In person or not, he or she is still capable of making lies. It may just not be as prominent as in dating sites due to increased annonimity.

On the other hand, say after a decent amount of exchanges have been made and the two decided to meet. It's not a bad idea to find someone to go with you when meeting the person. Of course, conditions have to be made clear prior to the meet. It's not that different when going out on some social party where strangers outnumber people you actually know. You'd have company you can rely on to go with you.

Either way, safety and being smart about your actions are common to both modes of connecting with people.

Sounds okay as long as you play it smart & avoid being gullible I guess, but still is risky to do in this virtual world since people can send you a fake picture & information & etc. Which is much more deceiving than meeting someone face-to-face.

I'm in a simular suituation that he's in.

But don't suggest to me to go to ridiculous places like a nightclub or some crap. Come on, you know darn well what goes on most of the time in places like that.

Add to it that I'm normally not a party person.

I'm not as desperate as he is, and I'm not looking for a "hott" female, but a real female.

lol yea thats awesome that you could find somebody online see its kinda hard since i have no experience and like im just reallly really shy in person and the internet i can get the message across and i feel like the askin part is the only thing i cant do so if anybody can solve that prob then plz tell me


Basing this on experience, you don't even necessarily have to ask as such...
If you're friends in the first place it does make things easier, and if you start flirting/confess your attraction and they're cool with it, sometimes it just kinda follows on from that.

But if it's a girl you don't know so well, you could just start on a casual basis. If she knows you just ask her if she wants to meet up sometime for coffee. Or offer to buy her a drink if you're already out somewhere.
Keep it kinda casual like that and the worst you could get in return is a "no thanks".

Just try to think of the positives of it; there's not much to lose!

I think they suck and people should date people in real life instead of going on a blind date.
