Found my wife on OK Cupid 5 years ago. Got married within a few months and we now have 3 beautiful little girls. If people fill out their profile honestly it can work.

Your name age and maybe gernal location aka your city would be the only really meaningful information someone could steal from that but if someone put it up on a dating site then they expect other people on the site to come and see it. I don't understand your comment. I think you're referring to that Ashley Madison thing but that's not a dating site, it's for married people that want to cheat so just having THAT account being visible to people is bad but not sites for regular people, unless you're embarrassed or think that your friends would laugh or tease you (if they would then you shouldn't call them your friend)

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.

I'm not sure how old you are but lets say you're outside and someone starts talking to you because they're interested in you. and then you see that you're interested in them so you two start talking you sort of don't get to do that whole friend first thing.
On a dating site I'm assuming everyone chats on the site, and talks on the phone or something a bit before they decide to meet up, so i don't really see a difference personally.

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.

Same thing here. The last person you talked to face to face could be a psycho because the thing is, that a psycho should be able to hide that in order to blend in with regular people O_O


As for me i'd say yes To dating sites. you get to talk to someone and tell them what you like and don't like and if you two don't match or something you can just leave the conversation, instead of talking to someone face to face and finding out that you two actually hate each other.
I met not my ex but my ex before that online and lived with them for a year so it can work mine just didn't. but i'm grateful that i met that person and that i had that experience.

I stopped using tinder like a year ago and I have okcupid and badoo but hardly check them anymore. most people i find seem to be single moms or have the app on their phones and never respond/reply to anything, not that many of them are very interesting. I've been single for quite a while and the dating scene is a nightmare, dating sites in my experience are no different, it's down to luck that you message someone that is interesting and wants to meet you. I guess I miss intimacy, but I'm not getting any younger and I'd rather find something more productive to distract me from feeling alone

Nope haven't tried it, but the best way to get into a relationship is to search for people with similar interest IRL. I can't say it's like this everywhere, but over´here in Sweden we've got meetups where people with similar interests just meet up. The goal is to make friends but it's gotten into relationships between people countless of times on these meetups

I met my partner on a dating site. There was no one in my social circles that really appealed to me, and I was sick and tired of trying to find someone on a night out (all I got was drunks, unsurprisingly..).

I just treated it like a normal social networking site and used it to find friends (who were open to more). If you use them just be yourself and if you are meeting someone off-line always do it in the day, in a public place, and make sure you get there and back under your own power (don't get a lift from them, they could be psychos)

I haven't used dating sites. However, I do think they're a really good thing.

Nothing wrong with the single life bro. Better to be single than settle just for the sake of being with someone.

Dating Sites? Love Life is not at the top of my mind right now, I am satisfied with how things are and there is no need for me to try anything like that.

I have one though I've noticed that people never talk to me or if they do they are usually spam bots, so I don't really use it at all. I'd rather just meet people through just casual conversation.

I met my current wife on okcupid.

Let me sum up the experience from the male POV. You will write a lot of messages and if you get 1 out of 10 to respond you are doing very well. out of the responses maybe 1 out of those 10 may be a worthwhile date. So your at about 1 in 100.

Personally if you are a guy and don't mind giving it a bit of effort I think its fine. I can't speak for the female side of it I'd assume they get a lot of creep messages.
