Online Dating Experience 11
Online Dating Works

35 year old female from California

Online dating is just another way to meet potential dates. As in real life, you have to separate the wheat from the chaff. There are so many pieces that need to fall into place to make that happen: chemistry, both being in "that place" at the same time, making a relationship one of your priorities, etc. My best friend and I figured it would take 50 or 100 dates before we found one guy we were interested in dating exclusively who was also interested in us. You can't meet two people, have it not work out, and think "online dating stinks."

As a single mom, I found online personal ads the easiest, quickest way to meet new people since I didn't have the luxury of many free weekend nights. Another bonus: my personal stated I had kids, so there was no need for me to "drop the bomb" on some guy I'd just met at a bar or out dancing. If a man wasn't interested in a woman with kids, he didn't email me. I never took that personally; everyone has preferences.

Did I have some heartbreak? Sure. Were people sometimes not what they advertised themselves to be? Definitely. However, I'd also had those same things happen with men I'd met the old fashioned way.

I met husband number two almost five years ago. He answered my ad, but he was too young, recently separated from his wife, Canadian, and taking a sabbatical from life, in general. He was also smart, well read, funny, and we had instant chemistry on the phone. Did I go into meeting him thinking I'd fall in love? Heck no. We had a great first date and by the next week, we were inseparable. Now we're expecting yet another baby and are very happily married.

As for that best friend, she ALSO met her husband online, as did several other good friends of mine.
