Single Saturday #6 - Online Dating?


If you believe the commercials for online dating sites, a good portion of marriages taking place today are couples who met online. I'm not sure how they check this little fact (unless they've added that question to the process of applying for a marriage certificate).  True or not, online dating is here to stay.



I just wonder how many of you have tried out online dating. It's just not for me. Even if I wasn't creeped  out by the idea of meeting a guy online, I'm not willing to move from my home town, and I'm pretty sure no guy would want to move here. I guess if you aren't bothered by meeting people online, and you live in the city, online dating might be a viable option.

I'd love to know if you have tried it, how it worked out for you or if you know anyone who met their soul-mate online!

I'm totally with you on this one. Online dating creeps me out and I think from when I grew up there was a stigma around it so it just feels desperate to me. I also know that I could never move for someone. I love my life here too much to give it up for someone else.

I finally tried it earlier this year, out of sheer boredom. It was a big fat waste of money! It is so hard to meet guys though, no matter where you live, so I thought I'd finally give it a try. I do know 3 couples who are now married from it though, so it does work for a lot of people! I'm just holding out for meeting a guy in a grocery store or something. Don't they always try to tell us that is where people meet? I'm not sure how though, I have never in my life talked to a stranger in a grocery store. ;)

I tried online dating as well when I finally decided that being single forever was not necessarily what I wanted. It didn't work for me. Maybe that was because I am so suspect about those on dating sites. Still, I believe God has someone out there for me, and He will make sure that person comes into my life (with or without the dating sites)!
