It's definitely not for me. I enjoy meeting people but not with any sort of "love" or "physical" interest.

My observation from people I know is that it doesn't work out most of the time. I have no doubt there are exceptions to what I've seen. I would not feel very comfortable doing it for myself.
" You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do. "

I've done it and I've made quite a few really great friends online. But it is definitely very scary and you have to be smart about what you say to people and how much you reveal and when because you really never know.

Eldest son's friend at college met a female online. They got married. It turned out the chick was psycho & had been through 3 marriages prior. She lied to him to 'trap him' & took his money. Be careful.
I met my hubby in an AOL chat room (anyone remember those??) 14 yeas ago! We'd both be on around the same time everyday and were always talking sports... so he asked me to a Yankees game... the rest is history
My only suggestion is to take it slow! Anyone can be anyone online. For every success story I'm sure there is a disaster story! Best of luck to you and I hope it works out!!!!
