I'm curious!

So you might say that I've been toying with the idea of getting back into the dating scene.  *gasp*  Yes, as crazy as it sounds!  I know what you're thinking, I don't have time to think about men!  That's why I say I'm just toying with the idea. 

Anyways, I'm getting up there in years, I have obligations, and more importantly I live in Utah County.  Which lets face it, as much as I love this fine state of mine, can be cruel to woman over a certain age.  So I've been thinking toying resigning myself to the idea of signing up for an online dating website.  AAAAHHHH!

Ugh, I scream with fear because the online world can be cruel.  See, in the cyber world of dating there is an added rejection factor.  A man, can spend days emailing you with questions that lead you to believe that he may just be the kind of person who would like you for who you are.  THEN, they see a picture and BAM, they've fallen off the face of the planet leaving no trace of the person you'd spent days getting to know.  After a few failed attempts at cyber dating and my bruised ego/soul healed, I'm actually considering it again.

What do you all think?  Do you believe in finding love on the internet?  Do you think that love will happen when its meant to happen?  Do you know of another fine way to meet upstanding men?  Please share, I could use your opinions!

Ela you're so cute! I know examples where internet dating has worked, so I can't say it's a total failure...I also have friends that I've wished would try it and didn't. So I certainly believe it's possible. Don't do it unless you're totally comfortable with it, and don't be pressured by anyone else. :)

Ela, I love your honesty! I can't say that I have personal experience, but my sister is an e-harmony success story. She married the guy a few months later. I hear that some sites are better than others...but i don't know! I do think you should make sure that you are having fun with it, otherwise it's a waste of your time!

I know several people who met on the internet, so I know it can work. I think it is a great way to get to know someone.
