I was thinking the same thing when reading POF's advertisement of "over 300,000 relationships started here" or something like that. It would be interesting to see where these "relationships" are at after a year has passed or what wall was hit before it crashed. I guess it also matters what definition of "relationship" you use. I also find the "timing" of these marriages a little bizarre,confusing and a little rushed. But what the hell do I know, I'm still single and never legally tied any knot. I guess, to each his own on this one.

It takes a lots of guts to jump into a marriage (or into any relationships) these days. The statistic says 1 in every 2 relationships will end up in a break up/in divorce. But if we do not take the bull by the horn, how will we ever know if we can make it work.

Like most of us, I was scared of entering into a relationship. I had cold feet and strayed home a few times, unable to go and meet a lady for a meet and greet "date". I also "miss" a couple of PoF organized dance because I ran out of courage. We all do.

I met my sweet lady over three years ago on PoF. It has not been all smiles but we have been smiling much more this past year than ever before...we got to know each other much better through our shared activities and the times we spent apart have shown us that we both want to make it work. We made some adjustments along the way, some "give and take" and, believe me, it's well worth every effort.

So...to all singles who are dreaming in glorious color of a wonderful relation, go for it. Remember, one never regrets the things we tried and fail at but how many of us regrets the things we never undertook for lack of courage?

Sorry, this should read...

Like most of us, I was scared of entering into a relationship. I had cold feet and STAYED home a few times, unable to go and meet a lady for a meet and greet "date". I also "miss" a couple of PoF organized dance because I ran out of courage. We all do.
