Is it a good thing or is it bad? Basically, Do you like it or do you not. What do you think of online dating. What are your experiences? Have you done it before? are you currently online dating? Share your thoughts everyone.

I had an online girlfriend a few years back. Is was alright but you can't do a lot of things that you can when you date some one who is closer to home. I enjoyed it for the most part but i can't say i would do it again do to the fact that when you online date it just feels more like you are close friends than really dating(at least for me)

Online dating is a great way to establish a genuine, non-physical motivated relationship. Especially if you're getting to know them without knowing how they look, as we are visual people, you're less likely to make an instant judgement upon seeing them or meeting for coffee.

However, long distance online dating is a lot more dangerous. Unless you're willing to or already planning to move continents or states, it's best to steer clear. Even if you find what you consider to be your "one love", there is not much many people can do to chase it.

Bottom line is: Just go meet people, or keep it to a realistic distance.

I don't find online dating a bad thing.

I've dated online before. It wasn't a bad experience, I really like it <3 Though I do have rules before I get into a relationship online.

1. If there is a slim chance i'll never meet the person irl, I won't even try to "date" them online.

2. Skype. I want to know if you're the person in the picture you show. I've read about many online relationships with people catfishing so I'm not taking a chance.

I'm not currently in one, and I don't plan to anytime soon. I prefer a relationship in person but.... Sometimes you meet someone online who you just have such a strong connection with that you just can't resist and it's fine. Because behind that computer screen is a human, not a robot.

I have a friend who is pretty content with online dating. Though they never meet, he seems relatively happy.

I don't think I've had a online girlfriend, but if I assume that its similar to a long distance relationship with a certain degree of difference.. Then I think its fine.

Social wise, I think people have begun to accept online dating. With all the websites that promote meeting people online and all the social medias we have, its kind of hard not to meet people online.

It'll eventually become a normal thing in our lives. Though I met my girlfriend in IRL(for a lack of a better term), Online dating probably allows people to go through he same emotions and experiences.

Good luck to all of you online daters.

i do believe that theres someone for everyone.

sometimes they are right in front of you and you never see them.

or

you have to search for them.

i have seen them work, and i have seen them fail. the rate is not to much different to people meeting in real person.

i was grown under traditional ideals, so i naturally would want to meet someone in person. but i honestly wouldn't mind online dating.

i don't think its to much different from long distant relationship.

anywho i sorta think it makes dating so much easier, its not hard to woo someone. the only hard part is keeping it up for countless years. not everyone looks for a relationship, and it creates the dark curtains that we see today. there are people catfishing, but then there are Barney Stinsons.

without a doubt it is. i am structurally a pessimist. so it counterbalances it. i can also go into many philosophical details to what the phrase can mean, but i am also structurally a minimalist. i am a contradiction.... starburst taste the flavor. srry had to do it.

Do whatever makes you happy. I've met girls through dating sites but never had a relationship in which we never met or was mainly online. I'm not the kind of person who could do that but I have a friend who has been in an online relationship for a few years and he's happy, so I figure thats whats important.

I have taken part in and believe that online dating works, I have a few friends who are married, and their relationships stemmed from online dating. Sure having the physical touch and seeing one another face to face is great, but a relationship is way more mental than it is physical. If you can't connect on a mental level, and accept each others personalities, then what you have isn't a relationship. It's just a mess.

It sounds like structurally you may have taken one too many liberal arts classes too.

Not trying to troll too hard, I just couldn't pass that up.

I've never really tried it. It CAN get annoying in MMOs if people really flaunt it. But I have no problem with it really. I'd be game i suppose. If i liked some enough, why not.
