Online Dating Experience 44
Discovered Changes with Internet Dating

39 year old female from Texas

I met a man back in 1999 on Love@AOL. We chatted for a couple of weeks online and talked on the phone before we decided to meet. I drove to his area one Sunday afternoon and we sat in the restaurant and talked for five solid hours.

Needless to say, I felt there was something between us that day since we continued to date for two more years before getting married. Well, we ended up getting married and lasted for about 4 1/2 years. I later found out my husband was gay and he is now having a relationship with a man. So, due to the situation I filed for divorce and am much happier these days.

I am now to the point where I want to start dating again. I will mention that I am being much more careful these days and feel it is important that I am if I am deciding to explore dating through the internet again. I have discovered many changes with internet dating since I met my ex about some seven years ago.

I am convinced I will meet the love of my life one day whether it is online or some social setting in the real world. The good thing is there are many options available that people can choose from as far as talking to people in the chat rooms, dating websites, or dating personal services. So, these days I am even leaving all my options open as far as meeting the right person. I have checked into a few of the dating websites and find that some are better than others for obvious reasons.

I know that happy endings are possible online and I am just trying to encourage everyone not to give up if you really want to find your true love. I have had a few dates since my divorce and things are going pretty well for me. I feel I have more opportunities available to me now than when I met my ex husband.

Some words of advice - please meet the person for the first time in a public setting, really take the time to get to know someone before considering a serious relationship with me (I have found more people pretend to be someone they aren't on the internet and several like to play games) and follow your heart and mind. If it seems too good to be true, then it probably is because I am finding that out the hard way.

So, this is my two cents worth as far as online dating is concerned. I have met eight people online since I started this type of dating some time back. Some are good experiences and some are actually worth forgetting. To be honest with you, I feel I could write a book about my online dating experiences. Take care and lots of luck to everyone. I hope you all find the love of your life.
