i think its the convienance, the variety, the "yuck, I dont like profile factor", and on here you can see if they (men and women) are out just for love , friendship or relationship without going through all the wineing and dining.
good luck and enjoy to all. I know i tell anyone if they really want to know me go to the forums, i am honest on everything i posted so its easier than trying to explain what i am really like

Imagine having a club that was full of people from different areas of the world, different hobbies, intrests and likes. Now that club would 'probally' be the best club in the world for meeting that someone for you.

The internet is just so wide that there is bound to be someone out there for everyone.

For me it's 'cos I meet so few people in the 'real' world. I'm a member of a local drama group and none are single, and my salsa class is full of women as is my place of work (just started a new one!)

I'm also very shy around men and will run in the opposite direction if approached by a guy. Online is a much easier way of getting over that initial shyness.

Why are some people NOT using the internet to find a date?

A friend of mine is 29 now and he never had a girlfriend in his life...but he refuses to go on a dating site although I am sure he would find someone on a dating site......

I am also sure lots of people who never go out and/or live in the country also have virtually no chances in meeting anyone...and if they went online they probably had a chance to find someone.

I'm a single mum of a disabled child who can't go out into public without losing it on a regular basis as a part of his disability. So, assumptions are usually made before I even start about how crap a mum/person I must be to have a child that acts like "that". So, going out is rare. At least online I can cut through the assumptions people make about my dress sense, piercings, tats, and child's behaviour and hopefully people can see the real "Me".

Besides, I home brew...why would I spend money for watery beer when I have loads of beer and wine in my fridge for my enjoyment?

I have said that on here in the past....there are some people that are prisoners in their own homes, and sites like this will open a whole new world for them.

I think these type sites are becoming more acceptable, and will become a lot more popular in the coming years. Lonely single parent women need to know about these sites Razz

Personally I've started doing it because nothing else has worked so far. I'm just too respectful to try any of the guerilla tactics most guys seem to employ in bars and clubs.

Well personally it seems like the best option for me as I don't tend to go to many places on my own where I'm likely to meet people. Then when I am out & about, i think not meeting people is just down to a lack of confidence Sad


totally unrelated and off topic i know..but just had to say that your pic looks like you have got mickey mouse ears on your head..

sorry ..i have been drinking and thats what i saw..no offence intended, just struck me as funny..

Very Happy

in my experience most genuine people are here because there's some reason why its hard to get a date out there.

i've met 4 women from dating sites
1 had 5 kids!
1 was messed up in the head over dead soulmate
1 was generally messed up in the head
1 couldnt find the right sort of person, but luckily that turned out to be me

i've talked to women who I would have met but lived too far away, ones that lived closer that I almost met but i chickened out in the end. Ones that I'd just want to be friends with. Im in the catorgory of people who's generally wont talk to people i don't know never mind flirting with them. Thats my reason.

Oh I missed this topic originally.

My reasons:

1. I do not date within the industry I work in! (long story!)
2. I never meet anyone other than the people who work in my industry. (an even longer story!)
3. What an astonoshing amount of interesting people you meet when you try on line dating .... I have made some genuine frineds over the years as well as dating and I would never have met those people otherwise as our paths would just not have crossed!

So I agree with Toby on this ....... why are people NOT internet dating?
