We're here to answer some of your burning questions. I tried Ok Cupid for about a week, met a girl within a couple days, and two and a half years later, we're getting married. But, despite your curiosity, you haven't been able to convince yourself to actually try it out.
And, while I can't promise everyone's experience will be as great as mine, I do think it's worth a shot. Most people won't admit it, but plenty of them do it.
Here are a few questions I often get from people who are curious..haven't yet taken the plunge. The question is whether the people doing it are the ones you'd want to date. Unlike farting in public, though, online dating's stigma is quickly going away.
If you ask around, you'll be surprised how many people you know are doing it. Remember: there are more people doing this than you probably realize.
It's not just internet-addicted geeks (myself notwithstanding). If one of your friends is going to judge you for trying to find love, then maybe they just aren't very nice.
And if you're saying stupid stuff on your profile...well, don't.
If you wouldn't want a friend to see it, you probably wouldn't want it to be the first thing a potential date sees.
More importantly: on most dating sites, your profile isn't truly "public".
The only people who can see your profile are other people signed up for the site.
So if someone you know sees your profile...well, they're on the site too, aren't they?
Neither of you have anything to be embarrassed about. B but consider this: meeting someone online, especially after you have a chance to vet them, is no less safe than meeting someone at a bar or a club.
In fact, unless you have a buddy system with Batman, it's probably safer.
