Have you tried it? Yes
Have you paid for it? No
Have you met people off "the internet" or dating sites? Yes
What experiences have you had/heard of...good or bad?
All good so far. In fact, I met my ex-fiance online. No, it didn't end up working out in that we didn't get married, but it wasn't because he was a bad guy. We're still on good terms and stay in touch.
How dangerous is the infamous "stranger of the internet"?
No more dangerous than someone you meet anywhere else. Just be careful, take precautions, and exercise common sense. I never understood how people could harp on the internet for being so dangerous and would then turn around and go have a one night stand with some random person from a random bar... lol

You know I like internet dating so you can get the big issues put in play right away. There's no 'wondering' if they have or want kids, or if they hate smokers, or what their interests are (if they are honest!). I don't want's kind of awkward to bring that up on a first or second date! And I don't want to waste time figuring that out.

I am not even sure how I'm supposed to MEET guys with the life I have, LOL. Sooo yeah I was totally considering it but didn't want to be one of those weird people but then I hear a lot of people who have success with it. So I dunno.
This. I've considered it but I'm not sure if I'd do it or not... I have online friends from forums (obviously lol) and I've known a guy for quite some time now. I don't think he's the type to date people he knows online but if he asked me I'd definitely date him. He's been one of my best friends for a really long time. But he lives on the other side of the country so that might not work out lol!
Don't fear tomorrow.

Yes, tried it.

No didn't pay!!!

Was good fun and definitely built my confidence up! Went on a few dates. Played it safe, went public places, told people where I was and who I was meeting.

Didn't not do it to find "the one". Did it to get back "in the game" as it where lol

I've met people from Chaz, does that count? Lol I'm even going to meet one or two more in November...

Honestly, I don't think the "stranger of the internet" is that big a deal as everybody makes it out to be. Be smart, let somebody know where you'll be, when you should be home, and stick to it.
