Wow at all the fools saying YDI. Other people have posted FMLs saying they met someone online and it didn't turn out well, and those same idiots voted YDI for using "a stupid online dating service". Plenty of hypocrites on this site.

I'd see online dating as similar to meeting someone at a bar... and then getting their phone number. Not the same as going home with them after meeting them for the first time. It seems about the same risk to me. Or meeting someone ANYWHERE for that matter, who is not already a friend of a friend.

Given the amount of people who date online now... The statistical chance of you going out with some psychopath is about the same as just encountering them on the street, in the bar, or any other part of real life. Also, it's much safer online because any crazy person who you reject on the street is within reach to harm you, while people online are not.

I agree with notnegativenews. But OP my best advice for you is this: Think before you speak, especially if you JUST met these people.. Seriously. You can make an ASS out of yourself by ASSuming.

Well it's okay to express your opinion, but it's kind of like "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.." When you talk to people you don't really know and say something that can be considered negative to others, well it's just a bad risk to take.

There's nothing wrong with disagreeing with online dating (I'm not a huge supporter of online dating either) but the way OP said is a bit careless. She said it was "the dumbest thing ever" which is just a really tactless way of saying it. The situation would have been fine if the OP had something more tactful like, "I'm not a huge fan of online dating."

No, she's not. Everyone knows pooping into a firehose is the dumbest thing ever. But in all seriousness, nothing wrong with online dating. Not everyone meets in the same way.
