Have you guys ever had any good experiences here or other sites?Page 1 of 1    
Have had some beautiful experiences over the years from dating sites locally ... several ladies became lifetime friends. Not every guy wants to jump a woman's bones within 5 minutes or 5 hours ... so don't give up. Edison had thousands of attempts before he produce electric light we today take for granted ... if he'd given up after 5 or 10 or 100 attempts we'd be using candles or sitting in the dark.

find the love waiting in your dreams.
May the laughter that you find in your tomorrow
wipe away the pain you find in your yesterdays.”

I met a woman I like on another site (Singlesnet); she's actually the one who first contacted me. It's been pretty casual dating so far, a few dinner dates with hand-holding and quick kisses (which is about my speed), but I like her and am comfortable with her, and she's made references to long-term possibilities.

Have met some interesting folks and had some good experiences with other, mostly pay sites, with no real bad experiences with online dating, just some assorted "strangeness".

There may be a few exceptions on "free" sites like POF, but mostly I get the impression that there's alot more women here who really aren't that sure about "dating" to begin with, but they still want to "throw their hook in the water" and see what bites.

So on balance, I think you probably do get what you pay for.

It's really creepy and annoying, and I don't know why I get those kind of people, my profile isn't um sexual or anything in the least.

Lacking any sort of question in your post, I'll go based on the thread title.

"Have you guys ever had any good experiences here or other sites?"

Most-definitely not.

I have not yet had a single good experience meeting anyone on any online dating site.. yet. That includes over email, IM, phone or in-person.

But I remain hopeful that there maybe that 1:1000 out there that is what I would consider myself compatible with and find some chemistry with.
