My two friends got together through OKcupid and they’ve been living together for 2 years! I like OKcupid and used it before I met my boyfriend, it’s free and there aren’t so many really sleazy guys on there.posted about 3 years ago
I personally have never tried it but theres no harm trying it out and seeing if its right for you. Personally I think it would be a bit awkward when meeting for the first time.posted about 3 years ago
To be honest, I’m not a big fan.
I’ve had two friends try it out before, and it worked out alright for them, however it’s not my cup of tea.
But ya never know.
And like jeepneysoul said, be safe!
be safe. my best friend’s sis is engaged to someone she met online. so i guess it works!posted about 3 years ago

My coworker met her husband on the internet and they’re a really great match for each other. It’s great to hear all these perspectives though…I’m always iffy about it but you never know. It sounds like it works out pretty well!posted about 3 years ago
i first met my boyfriend on the internet before i finally knew him in person..posted about 3 years ago
I met someone off the net when I was a freshman in HS…bad idea! But, my sister met her husband through a friend on Myspace. If you are OLD ENOUGH [i.e. 18+], then it is your decision. Make sure you tell someone or have someone go with you!!! I am weary of it, though.posted about 3 years ago
Ive never dated online and i think its a bad idea. Because people can say anything and act as though they are anyone. Sadly to say back in high school a few af my friends and myself messed with a few guys badly. Oneof the guys was in love with us just because we acted like we were a attractive grown woman with the intentions of starting a real relationship. Its just a bad idea.posted about 3 years ago
it depends, i think it’s ok when you have met him in person then start talking online :) but make sure it’s not some stranger you’re talking toposted about 3 years ago
I met my boyfriend online. Not a dating site but a forum/message site. We’ve been together 15 months.posted about 3 years ago
I’ve tried it several times
Last time wasn’t too bad, but I decided that it wasn’t for me… I miss the excitement of meeting someone spontaneously and just don’t know what to expect at the beginning… when you date online, you already know you’re both looking, it takes away the surprise effect for me :) but I DO know a lot of people who met their significant others through there and loved it :)posted about 3 years ago
I met my boyfriend online too, but it wasn’t a dating site. We had actually graduated from the same high school, but 5 years apart. We talked online for 2 months before deciding to meet, and when we did meet for that first time, he just stopped by my work so we could talk for a while. After that, we started talking on the phone, then a week later had our first date :)posted about 3 years ago
maybe it’ll be fun, however be very careful with those guys who r just using other pictures and making fake profiles just to impress girls. try to get to know the guy better and if possible just like Nonesushi said, “keep it old school”. Nonetheless, how will you know that something might work for you if you will not give it a try. Remember, just to always keep it real. ;)posted about 3 years ago
I don’t think it’s for me! If you’re going to do it…just be SAFE!posted almost 3 years ago
