  1. Neeharika says:

    I am not comfortable to submit and create a profile on an online dating site. I have known a couple of friends who did it and so far they seems to be happy with their relationships.

  2. Neeharika says:

    I liked eharmony on Facebook.

  3. Neeharika says:

    I liked BettyConfidential on Facebook

  4. Kelly says:

    Sure, why not? I don't think it's that much different from any other way of meeting someone, if you're smart and can spot a creep. Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. d schmidt says:

    I actually do not think I would give it a go because I know a few people who have and its ended badly

  6. jacie says:

    I don't think I could ever do it.

  7. jacie says:

    Liked bettyconfidential on facebook

  8. danielle says:

    It seems kind of creepy to me. I know a few people that it has worked for, but it probably wouldn't for me.

  9. danielle says:

    Liked the facebook pages.

  10. Sharon says:

    I found my husband on an online dating site (not eHarmony). We've been together for over six years now and going strong.

  11. Sharon says:

    Followed @eHarmony and @BettyBuzz on Twitter

  12. Wehaf says:

    I have never tried internet dating, but I would be open to it, if I ever went back on the market.

  13. Betty says:

    This is simply a fast paced and automated version of the old mailorder bride concept. I'm sure there were those who tried it and those who decried mailorder. When you put it in perspective of not having to cross the wild west to meet your potential husband, online dating seems much more reasonable.

  14. Merissa says:

    I met my boyfriend of the last 2 years online

  15. Molly Savanick says:

    I know several people who have met their significant others online. My best friend met her boyfriend on a dating website and they have been together and happy for about 3 years now. I don't see anything wrong with online dating as long as you are smart and careful about it.

  16. Molly Savanick says:

    Liked BettyConfidential on Facebook :)

  17. Meredith Jones says:

    I met my husband through an online message board 11 years ago.

  18. Meredith Jones says:

    I tweeted!

  19. Trish says:

    No, I wouldn't. I would like to meet them the old fashion way. In person this way you could read them before giving them your number.

  20. Meredith Jones says:

    @meredithbjones I followed and tweeted

  21. Marsha Kamish says:

    No, there are too many crazies out there. Maybe if someone was referred to me by someone I already know…

  22. Meredith Jones says:

    I liked both on Facebook.

  23. zea6 says:

    Since I'm newly married, I have no need for online dating. But if I weren't married, I would be a little apprehensive to try because people are really creepy these days.

  24. Cathy Philipps says:

    no i have never tried it

  25. Cathy Philipps says:

    i like Betty Confidental on FaceBook

  26. Julia says:

    I have tried POF, Ok Cupid, and JDATE, but I only chatted with the guys, never ended up meeting any, but there were potentials

  27. Adriane says:

    I've never tried online dating but I think if I was still single I would. Why not? It's hard to meet people once you're not in school anymore.

  28. Michelle says:

    I have, and I still have few profiles out there. However, the most interesting and compatible guy I have met online turned out to have a girlfriend. In general, guys seem to think that girls with online dating profiles have self-esteem issues and will just "take what they can get." There isn't a lot respect going on.Either that, or they are as generic as a store-brand corn flakes. "I like hanging out with friends, watching movies and listening to music." Um, duh. So does everyone else.

  29. Cassandra says:

    I guess it's not outside the realm of possibility for me

  30. Cassandra says:

    Liked both on facebook as Cassie Marie

  31. Amber says:

    If I were single I for sure would try! Before internet, as a young, young women, I party-line (the phone!) blind dated and once it turned out horrible! The ass told me I was pretty-ugly and not his type!! The next time I tried a blind date the guy was a HOT James Dean look-a-like who said I was exactly what he was hoping for…:)

    hi!! now following you on Twitter!

  34. @buttmuffin says:

    i spent hours filling out the eharmony questionnaire only to be told they could not help me. LOL i felt very depressed after that!!! I did try briefly but all the guys only wanted a hookup- not even a date. do people not date anymore?

  35. @buttmuffin says:

    i like you both on facebook (jules boot mcnubbin)

  36. Michele Dee says:

    I know a lot of people who have found love online, but I am not one to try online dating. I will mainly not try it because I like being single. If I was looking, I may try it. My Dad did online dating and is now married to the woman he met from there.

  37. Jules L says:

    I would definitely try online dating! In fact, I'm thinking of setting up a profile today! Online dating defintely works-it's how my good friend met her husband!

  38. Lisa Brown says:

    I would not give online dating a try, I am married. If I was not married, I still would not try it.

  39. Dianna says:

    Yes I will try anything once! If it doesn't workout then move on to next experience.

  40. Chelsea W says:

    I don't think I would just because of the fact that people are so different when placed behind a computer screen

  41. Jennifer says:

    I have never used online dating, but I've heard positive things about it, so I'd consider it!

  42. Amy says:

    Yes, I've tried online dating and I met someone great. We weren't meant to be an item but it was still a positive experience.

  43. Amy says:

    I tweeted as theycalmelola

  44. Heather M. says:

    I don't need to date online. I've been married to my husband for 12 years!

  45. Tracy Robertson says:

    i'm in a relationship, but if I wasn't, I would consider online dating, but I'd be very careful about it!

  46. gina says:

    I met my husband online, we have been married almost 7 years now!

  47. Kat H. says:

    I tried online dating. It's more intimidating, in my opinion, than when you meet someone at a bar or something. There's more pressure to put up amazing pictures and give some valuable content to your profile.

  48. amyorvin says:

    Yes, I met a great friend online 6 years ago and we have been best friends ever since. I wouldn't call it boyfriend/girlfriend really , but he is my best friend.

    Maybe I am just out of touch with how things go today but I prefer meeting people the old fashioned way. I just cannot see myself doing the online dating thing.

  95. Dani Janet says:

    I'm still young and in university with plenty of opportunities to meet people around the same age as I am, but if I were to not find a long-term partner in my schooling than I would definitely be open to exploring other options such as eHarmony or other online dating websites. My GRANDMOTHER met her boyfriend online, so it just goes to show that it could work for anyone!

  96. Julie says:

    I don't think I'd try it, just because I like meeting and getting to know people in person.

  133. Julie Harris says:

    I met my husband through playing a game on Facebook, and he lived over 3000 miles away in England at the time, we was just friends that became good friends and it grew from there to him visiting for a summer, then as we fell in love we visited each other more and more. Long story short is we got permission for him to move here and for us to be married, I think dating online made our relationship stronger and I told him things about my life that was easier to tell over the internet, I have found the man I want to spend the rest of my life with and I love him with all my heart!

  134. Amy Lee says:

    I met my boyfriend online and he is GREAT! :)

  135. Emmy says:

    No, no way, not ever!
