Any Thoughts About Online Dating?

More and more people are meeting the person of their dreams online via dating websites. I remember when this form of dating first started and I thought to myself there was no way this would ever last but I was clearly wrong. I remember when was the big place to go but now you are seeing so many different dating sites online from to

Today you see ads in many different forms advertising dating all over the world not just the US. I receive emails all the time in my spam folder for singles in London as well as many other counties. Dating in London, the US as well as all over the word has turned to online.

What happened to meeting people the good old fashion way like at work, a bar or being set up on a blind date? Guess these forms aren’t as popular as they once were but I have a hard time wrapping my head around meeting someone online. Melinda and I met the old fashion way; at a brew pub in Delaware where we got to speak face to face and got to know each other. I like the face to face interaction when you first meet someone in person but I do understand weeding out people who do not interest you online.

There is no right or wrong way on how people should meet and it is all personal preference but my preference is in person face to face.

How did you meet your significant other? Do you have a preference on how you would/would’ve liked to meet your mate?

I Disclose


  1. If I were single I don’t think I would do the online dating thing. I’m too scared of the online predators! Me and my significant other met when we were teenagers. We ran around with the same group so it turned out to be perfect. We were best friends before we became anything else 🙂

  2. Online dating is exciting. It can be good and disastrous at the same time.

  3. Well, meeting somebody at work was definitely out for me — I can’t THINK of a place less sexy than a law firm. (Also: all the men were lawyers.) I met my husband at a bar.

  4. My husband and I met on! We had both dated several people that way until we met. He wasn’t the type of guy I normally dated. If it wasn’t for online dating I probably wouldn’t have gone out with him. He is my best friend and soul mate! We will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in July!!!

    internet! haha. I met my husband through some sort of online meeting personals or something about 13 years ago. We’ve been married for 10 years 😉 Worked for me! My SIL also met her husband of 6 or 7 years online!

  6. Not too sure I’d be comfortable meeting people online nowdays, can be a bit dangerous.

    I’ve done online dating before, but it was years and years ago. Not sure I would do it again.
