I was curious how many people here have tried dating sites, and if you have then have your experiences been favorable or nightmarish?

I gave them a try once, but I kept getting hit up by 16 and 17 year old girls so I decided to just kind of back off. Didn't feel like going to prison.

I've tried Tinder and ironically enough it just made realize that I'll never find someone that I want to be with/ can entertain.

I'm so desperate, lonely, depressed, and miserable I was considering these but I think they're actually worse off and will only make me feel worse. Just wish I could find a girl that's going through the same thing I am. But that'll never happen.

I used to really expect to find a meaningful relationship through online dating sites, and all it ended up doing for me was putting dents in my self-esteem. So I changed that approach. If you're not expecting much, you won't have much to be disappointed with. Sounds cynical, but even best case scenario, it's just gonna introduce you to a person you wouldn't have met otherwise, and worst case, you wasted a lot of time on the internet (which if we're all being honest, was gonna happen anyways, so not a huge loss)

"Didn't feel like going to prison."
lmao Honestly I didn't think people under 18-20 even went on dating sites??

Dating, especially now, is something I feel I don't need for almost anything really.
So nae.

I tried eHarmony.... awful. Figured, "hey, they must make some sort of search in there to connect keywords of interests or connect the political views and stuff". Nope... The only thing it seems to connect are distance, smoking, and drinking preferences. As a conservative, video gamer, someone who just doesn't have fun at the beach or anything and not much for travel, I was bombarded with people I had no common ground with. Everything I put in my folio rarely if ever showed up in others. In fact I think the numbers of gamer girls was less than the profiles of ladies with literally nothing on them. Not an exaggeration, matched up with one girl who's only item on her folio was a name and "Q" under interests. And those were nowhere near the amount of very, very generic profiles all about loving to travel. And the few I was interested in were inactive for months, probably for the same reason I have been now, I was just over saturated with pointless offerings.

Thing is, I may have been able to overlook some of it, except they were also selling a matchmaker service (someone who'd look at the exact thing that it was supposed to already be sorting) for $5000. FIVE. THOUSAND. This was about a year ago, so maybe it changed, I've long given up on eHarmony though.

If you're looking for a geek girl (and aren't we all), they're no where near as rare as they used to be. You'll have a better chance meeting people at a comic shop, special events, so on. At least then if you meet people you could potentially network, get some friends, and lead into something better will far less wasted time and effort.

Nope; honestly, I haven't been very serious about dating until recently, so I've had no need for dating sites. I've been in a relationship before and decided after breaking up with her that I wanted to figure myself out and enjoy being on my own in high school before I got into any more relationships; I figured I'd have more promising, long-lasting relationships in college anyways.

Now that I'm in college, though, all I can say is that these next four years will give me more opportunities than any dating site will ever give me.

I don't trust dating site haha.

I remembered on online game, there was this lady who in early 20's was dating this guy all this time she thought he was around her age till she found out he was 12 year old! Hahaha. Must be one mature/smart kid to be able to hold conversation someone at that age.. Like talking about College and life etc. -shrugs-

Nah, and I probably ever won't go on them. I don't trust the people on there, and I would rather date someone I've been friends with for a while. Or at least someone I know.

Aside from children making false accounts on dating sites, I've come to figure that dating sites really are just kind of there for people that want a one-nighter. They all(male and female) say they're looking long-term to not look like a rat or a hood, but really all they want is that guilt-free booty call.

I think dating sites are a bit creepy. You never know if the other person is a criminal or downright psycho. I prefer online communication with someone I actually know in real life.

Nope. I'm more inclined to look here on CR.

It's really hard to find women outside of sites like this (or conventions, comic shops, etc.) that have similar interests. Most of the girls I meet outside have not much in common with me. People on dating sites are pretty much the same as those you can meet outside.
