One out of eight marriages last year were people who met online. I met my boyfriend online and we've been together for over three years and are now engaged. What's your way of meeting people? Going to bars? I think that's a little more sad and pathetic.

In your defense, I used to think the same thing. Then I went on a date with a guy I met online who seemed like he had some potential. He was by far the biggest douche bag I've ever met in my entire life. I think it fails more often than it works out, but it still works for some.

Oh really? How is it pathetic? I've been dating my boyfriend for over a year who I met online, who lives 8 hours away. I didn't plan for it to happen, but if something is meant to be, it'll be. Fuck you.

I agree with #5. My roommate's ex was a guy she met online. His profile was great, but six months into their relationship he confessed he was actually 5 years older than he said he was, divorced, and had been dishonorably discharged from the military for abandonment. Granted, anyone can lie about themselves when you meet them anyway, but it's certainly easier to lie online. And #3, places exists on the planet besides bars. I met my fiance through a mutual friend who thought we'd be great together. How pathetic is that on your scale?

#3. Exactly. #5. You never know if anyone else you meet is lying or dangerous, either. The chances are just as high. My boyfriend and I met on a dating website (he was looking for a relationship, I was just looking for a random person to talk to). It got to the point where we were talking on the phone and/or video chatting every day (when Uncle Sam didn't need him). We met about 8 months after we first started talking online, and now we've been dating for 8 months. It's great. Personally, I think meeting someone online is better than going to a bar or club to meet people. But the point is, don't judge. Just because someone does something different than you do doesn't mean it's wrong.

91: You're the idiot (and rude, too, but I digress) if you think that the worst thing that can happen when you meet a random person in a bar, the park, etc is that you'll be "incompatible". Of course the chances are the same... Someone you first meet in a public place has the same potential to be dangerous as someone you first met online. Do you really think criminals and deadbeats only hang out on the internet and don't exist in public?
