    Default Anyone tried Chemistry.com or any other dating site?

    Now that it appears that I may soon be "back on the market" and 15+ years removed from the dating scene has anyone ever tried one of these sites and had it go well? Or is it just a place people go to try and get laid?
    I did (as a joke to myself) a profile on chemistry.com and I have like 75 matches already, some are pretty hot and some or not, but its not just the beauty I am after.

    Its a lot of things.

    Way more men on those than women. Pictures and what they write about themselves may not be who they are.

    I had age requirements and a lot of women just ignore them and peppered me with notes. I had women sending me contact notes from back east.

    Personality does not come through on a add.

    Some people have found love on those, I did not.

    This one was funny.

    A woman sent me a few notes, I went to her add to check her out. She had 3 photo's in her profile, every photo was a group shot of about 6 women.

    I replied to her notes and asked which woman she was in the photo's. She got all huffy and sent me back a bitchy pissed off note telling all I cared about was looks etc etc etc.

    Needless to say we never met for coffee.

    If you want to be uber-serious about it, E-Harmony is like Fort Knox to get in to, but match well. I bailed after the 'free trial' ended and found out that keeping a profile up was $250 a year. No thanks.

    Random thoughts about online dating.....

    It can be a nightmare, and it can be a very good thing, this online dating stuff. Take your time and talk for awhile before you meet someone, and when you do, meet in public. Always.

    I wouldn't suggest going online to get laid. It's dangerous in many ways.

    Personally, when I was looking at profiles of women, as soon as I saw the words "recently separated", I was done, and moving on to the next profile. I don't know how the ladies feel about a guy being in that status, but to me, "recently separated" was an absolute disqualifier. Matter of fact, I won't date anyone who is separated. That divorce needs to be final.

    I wouldn't suggest meeting the kids, or introducing yours, until waaaay far down the road, either.

    Bottom line for me, dating sites have been a way of meeting people, but I'm not even looking right now. I wouldn't rule out using a dating site in the future, but it will be awhile. My final thought is this....don't put up with BS. Red flags mean something. But don't try to hand out any BS, either. Because they can spot it a mile away. Be real, be patient, and be careful.

    I did a few dating sites when I was separated (currently divorced) and I didn't have many issues with them. Chemistry for three months and then used OkCupid and Plenty of Fish (POF). Current girlfriend of 9 months was met on POF.

    Red has some good comments and I agree with them. The separated part is more to your discretion. I know me being separated scared off people but its a roll of the dice. Maybe they are the one that wanted the separation?

    The biggest tip I can give is to date a lot of women at the same time from these sites. They are doing it to you. Even if things seem to be going well on the first few dates, keep on communicating with others. Now whether or not you want to be open about it kind of depends on how you feel. I would go by the personality of the woman on how much I told her. Eventually you get to the point where you will be exclusive like in any other relationship.

    I did like Chemistry the best of the three sites because it did match me up with some very compatible people. I just got lucky on POF.

    Met my wife on match.com

    I got damn lucky though, I'll be the first to admit. If your really looking to meet someone, communicate through email for at least a couple of weeks before you meet. You'd be surprised how many weirdos you can weed out that way. Keep at it, before I went out for my now wife the first time, I had decided that if it didn't work out, I was gonna quit for awhile.
