I see no problems with them as long as you use common sense and good judgment. I don't know that I would ever use it personally, at least not right now maybe I'll change my mind in the future I don't know.

It's simply another tool used to meet people, and it can work better with people who have heavy schedules. My brother met his wife through a Christian dating site.

The internet has been instrumental in me becoming a Christian - from a chat room that led me to Christ to finding my churches in DK and NL through FB and Yahoo, respectively. I am not discounting the possibility that I might meet my future husband online.

I have seriously considered online dating after one major break up and two messy short relationships. I've been apprehensive all these years because I knew I wasn't ready at all but I was just lonely and desperate. I felt the discomfort of the residues from the past relationships. I did not want to go online dating and bring a lot of baggages with me. It is not fair. This is also the same reason why I have not dated IRL too.

With heart settled, think I am ready to check it out but I have not. I will eventually do it . As to when, I don't know.

I really want to delete my profiles, but I know that eventually I'll succumb to the temptation to try again and I don't want to have to reconstruct my profiles. I hate my lack of willpower.

Its OK, Mac. We'll be weak together. I still haven't deleted mine either. And the only actual interest I seem to be drawing is from men old enough to be my father.

But one day I'll want it again when I'm ready to consider dating, so it stays up.

Aaand flash forward to today, I'm no longer a member of any dating site. my profile was deleted sometime in January or February. And I've had no desire to open a new one.

I've been Christian Mingle, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Match, eHarmony, and a number of free sites as well whose names I don't remember readily. Hundreds of messages, and a grand total of three replies. The last one agreed to meet me. We went on what I thought was a date, but afterwards she retroactively downgraded it to "just hanging out", told me I was a patronizing jerk, and to stop contacting her. I saw on her FB page before I unfriended her that she had started dating a professional comedian the day after our "just hanging out evening". Hope he gets good material out of her. :/

TL;DR - Online dating is a massive waste of time and I quit.

I signed up to a few but never really got the courage to do much more than make an account and fill out my profile in a decreasingly serious manner. You get a million more internet points than me for actually doing something. :D
