Default Spinoff: Online Dating - have you ever?

And what were your experiences?

Just curious (nosy really!), I'm not interested in looking for somebody new. Although the ads some have for "finding your soul mate" make me wonder....

I met my husband online and before I met him I dated ALOT of people. I didn't really have any other way of meeting people and I had known a few people who met their husbands online so I figured I would give it a shot. Most of the dates were only first dates as that was enough, lol. I did meet and have two other boyfriends before I met DH, but neither one of them were right for me. If you are really picky and stick to what you are looking for it can be GREAT! I would be happy to answer any other questions you might have.

I was just wondering.
 
I read a book recently & a girl in it had a bunch of dates from an online service. All loosers until the last happily-ever-after one.
 


Are people honest or did you get a lot of men lying about their looks? Any stories you'd like to tell...

Oh, I have LOTS of stories! I think most people are honest, but not necessarily honest with themselves, lol. I met alot of guys who said what they were looking for was similar to me (wanting marriage and kids, being stable, etc.) who really didn't turn out to be that way. All of the people I went out with had pictures posted, so i knew KIND of what they looked like- it is always different in person. My favorite stories are the guy who wouldn't share his food, a guy who didn't give me a quarter to use the bathroom, and the guy who wanted to marry me after the first date (oh wait- that was my husband, lol!). There are definitely some interesting people out there. What I learned the most was not to compromise on ANY of my criteria- and that when you finally find the right one (or when he finds you in my case) everything is JUST RIGHT and just falls into place. I really thought my husband was too good to be true at first- I still really can't believe what a perfect match we are; but it took kissing alot of frogs!
