In person right??? This sounds horrible....man, I AM PICKY! I have met 13 guys. But this has been since Dec. on a couple of other sites, people are different when you see them in person. I am still close friends with a couple of the guys too, now I do a WHOLE LOT MORE EMAILING before "wasting" an evening with someone I thought might have some potential.

I totally don't feel bad anymore...I just read everyone else's posts.... :)

Well, after reading these posts....I am starting to understand why my attitude is a LITTLE jaded. In the past year or so I have met 2 from here...maybe 10 from Lava. I have been using online dating sites for 4 years. In the first year to 18 months I think I met somewhere around 125....then I got a little more selective about the whole thing. In total, I would think I have met maybe 200.

1 from POF (only been here two weeks) about 20 from other sites dating back to 1993 - so, on average, 2-3 per year when not in exclusive relationship.

In three years and three sites... about 20... Some Great... like Tony the Tiger.. Most very nice... and one rude person... Guess I'm ahead in the game....

Some ride Harleys.. some drive corvettes... most a truck... many early retired... most guys no kids.. or kids at home.. (there was one with kids at home and spent the entire date on the cell phone talking to them) One missing teeth... and I have them all on my IM account and we all say hi every once in a while..... I even let one of them buy me Dinner once... but that was because we were talking so long... and it just got to be that time......

All in all I think the internet is a good way to meet people you would never have met in the daily activites of life...... and a good experience... oh I forgot about the one stalker... but I prefer not to dwell on negative thoughts.....

Having fun.. feast or famine in Datingland.....

Im part of an online travel club as well, so the people I have met have not all been from a dating site. I have made so many friends online, its been great

Dates? I have had 5 in the past couple of years. Not a lot I know but I also go out and meet people in the non cyber world

friends, out of the 30 or so people I have met, I have probably retained half of those as international friends.

Only one person in all my online experiences turned out to be an unpleasant and was not who they portrayed themselves to be

Three. Met my ex-husband online in 1996, then someone this past spring (dated for a little while), and one more just recently.

I have been on POF for quite awhile and have been to some of the get togethers. To actually say I have met anyone would be an understatement. I have left messages for numerous guys and wish they would have at least had the decency to e mail back and say they were not interested. Don't know what to do differently but sure can't say my self esteem hasn't taken a blow. To update my profile won't change who I am so I can't say that I have met anyone on POF.

You mean from online dating sites?

Enough to say... I'm getting tired of it all and am heading towards a break from it all.

Several. From POF and other online thinguhmuhjigs as well.
But never any to "DATE". Made that clear from the start with 'em all.
Most were exactly as I thought. A few ... oh well. They didn't like me near as well in person it turns out.
