Really?? Wow, that is very interesting. My experience with online dating was that the guys whom I contacted myself never seemed to pan out. They were too sure of themselves since they already knew I was interested in them. My friend said the same thing. Hmm, I guess it could go both ways. It just always worked better for me when the guy was the first one to contact me. Still, I never had one good relationship from online dating. The men I dated long term and had strong bonds with were met in person. But there are some people I know who did meet their boyfriends and even husbands online, so it's all a matter of luck.

Also, one thing I noticed is that the same guys are on these sites for years and years. How is that possible that they don't ever find someone compatible???
