& also i'd rather get to konw someone before going on a date :S
I guess I could say yes because its "hard" to meet people for some people
and online is great way or all that bull.
but honestly.. its for losers.
I meet people all the f**ing time.
even with people I don't WANT to meet..
like don't random people just walk up to you and talk to you?
when your buying coffee.. when your buying tickets at paramount etc etc.
if not then"YOU" talk to THEM if your so desperate to meet someone your willing to go online.
and lastly its dangerous. they could lie? put fake pictures.
and they could even rape and kill you the first time you meet them.
I know we see ads on tv all the time saying I joined HARMONY and now we're happily married
but c'mon do u really wanna tell friends and families on your wedding day you met onlineee?
I know I don't.
hmm funny thing...
I just realized that my relationship with guys who i talk to online last longer than those who I just go to school with. I guess it's because im a quiet person and I don't go out all that much (im bloody 19 and I can't go out past 10, unless i tell my parents before hand and it doesnt involve drinking) =/ but my current bf I met over MSN i guess, well i met him through a friend of a friend... who knew each other in person... but yeaaah we've known each other for like about 6 years? Didn't really start going til 3 months ago.
Im not a very talkative person at first, and I get weired out by people hitting on me randomly. I unno if i should feel flattered about i, but most of the time i just freak out. Like this one time i was out with my friend and i just started freaking out after the guy had left =/ I forgot when it was... but my friend was laughing his ass off...
it totally depends on the person it works for some and not for others,
some ppl say its wierd others say its like any other way to meet ppl
tons of factors apply,
Local Facebook networking, does that count? Not relationships but friendships
Nope. Too many weirdo's online. Plus I like meeting guys the old fashioned way.
i personally wouldn't, not even for those online "friends" you've never met before. i had a friend who met someone online, and they lived in the states. then they told my friend that he was going to visit canada and wanted to meet her, but he never showed up...my friend thought it would be safe to meet with him alone too, well in a public place, but none the less, i wouldnt for safety reasons
I wouldn't use the online dating site to find a bf, but that's just my opinion.
Personally, it's kind of 50/50. I wouldn't necessarily go and purposely try to find somebody, like as someone else said, going to sites specifically aimed at dating. But I would take into consideration if it was somebody I met on Facebook and we have a mutual friend that we're linked to. At least you know the person is REAL and hopefully not a threat.
I think it's also the way you talk to one another online. Have any of you guys seen Dateline when they show all the internet predators? They always bring up sex in their conversations, so of course if you meet someone like that online, you'll realize something is up. I think that's the realize why people who don't want to participate in online dating is the fact that you could be in physical danger. I don't know, I think half the time people are just too naive (or too young) and don't see the signs. Love is blind, right?
Facebook is a wonderful thing though. I met my boyfriend at work a couple years back, but we never exchanged numbers or our emails. One day he found me on Facebook, so we just started talking and we actually clicked pretty well. Without it, there's no doubt in my mind that we wouldn't be together now! Facebook is great. LOL.
ew ! no
only desperate people do that
i know of a girl who did that without telling her mom and she's only 14
she also makes friends off vancovuerxchange etc.
she thinks shes so cool because she know a lot of people and can back her up, when they're probably thinking that she's weird for meeting them on the internet the first place
gross, i'm not that desperate
i meet people the old fashion way =)
yeah, what she said.. i meet people the old fashioned way as well =]
but, i have met someone through a friend and we talked on msn and we were seeing each other. our relationship wasn't based on the internet though.. cause that's sad (no offense to anyone). i'm not saying that meeting people online is bad at all, just it's not really for me.
i wouldn't, cos it might not be safe.
i think eventually online dating will be really really common and more normal
but i dont like it that way, im old fashioned, but ive never had a bf...and i think when im like almost 30 and still single, and become really desperate, i think ill eventually try online dating...
I would only consider dating someone I met online if it was met through my friends.
So basically, if it's some random person I have no connection to whatsoever, then the answer is no. There are too many creeps and weirdos out there...
too scared to do soo=SS Please login or register to view links
i think its really awkward. i met people online from fb through friends and when i meet them in person, awkward... LOL so online dating is a big no.
and for safety reasons.
I think overall it's okay for people to meet people online, but #1 Have to be "friends of friends" #2 like above, from facebook, or msn or something... not an online dating site.. that's just a internet predator territory because dating sites target desperate, vulnerable, people even if they "just want to find someone with lots in common" ... it's a very risky move. I personally would not do it myself, but you never know maybe a chance in the future if we have mutual friends... no exceptions. My friend met her boyfriend through vancouver x change and they have lots of mutual friends, yet he ended up being a serial cheater so the fact that he chatted her up clued in that he easily finds girls online... but I guess that's not the case for everyone.
there's a girl in my school who dates guys from nexopia. Sad thing is, she went around bragging how she met up with the guy (she was 15 when she met up with this 29 year old guy) and bragged how she got fingered in his car and they almost had sex etc. What makes her story even sadder is that the guy never called her ever again after that day (well obviously she's pretty fat and ugly but yeah). Personally, after hearing all her stories, I do not believe in online dating although it does work for some people. Not trying to offend anyone, and i know people have different cases, but from what I see and heard from her, nex and few other places connecting to online dating just looks like a place where desperate LG's hang.
...xD ok my 3rd post in the topic..
most of the negative things people have said x_X i just ignore...
meeting ppl online isnt weird it isnt for losers..its just another method of meeting somone.. like i said b4, it works for some not for others
and im quite happy, 2yrs in Feb =)
my ex, i met him through vancouverxchange and we dated almost 3 years.. LOL
