  • Spikebee I am interested in how and where people are meeting these days. Match, E Harmony...the grocery store...what has been your experience? 3 years ago   *   21 replies
    • TDOG Omg don't get me started!!! 3 years ago
    • Danni girl My cousins all met their husbands at church... I met my first husband at work (that didn't go well) and my current husband at the club (go figure) I hear e-net dating is the thing to do if you don't like the bar/club scene... 3 years ago
    • AMpr411 Hi Spikebee, you can go to a gym and meet people there, don't go to a bar, at least you want to date a future AA person!! :). you can use those sites and there are nice and interesting people there, but also you have to be very careful and be friends first before you get romantic, because it could be even dangerous. I almost married to guys that I met in internet, and 1 of them is still my friend and also my business partner. But I would say you have 50/50% of good or not that good type of persons that you could meet on those sites. 3 years ago
      • strugglecity I feel like the gym suggestion needs an asterisk: don't try and pick up people at the gym. If you're there to work out every day and you really enjoy your class and routine and happen to see the same person there often, feel free to strike up a conversation, but only after there's a kind of established, superficial relationship. Don't be creepy, and don't be like those gold diggers at Equinox who don't actually work out. 3 years ago
    • melisam_1973 My first hubby was my hs sweetheart and that didn't work out. I meet my current hubby online through a chatroom. I used to have guys come up to me when I was younger, now that I'm older - no such luck. LOL. 3 years ago
    • brooklynblue a friend of mine set me up and i have been seeing my bf for 1 1/2 years... but i feel like people dont set people up that much anymore. 3 years ago
      • strugglecity That's the ONLY way to go in my opinion! That way the friends have been vetted by at least two other people. Once you're in a relationship, there's no reason to get out of the dating game. Just start playing it for someone else. 3 years ago
    • splitter really wish i was asked out more. in person. like on the street even. feel like asking someone out on a date in person is a lost art. 3 years ago
      • 7suellen i agree splitter; i have met nice people on dating sites, but more than not it feels like a job interview. everyone is on their guard. deflecting the weirdos or thinking they have to! so there's no romance or randomness to it. without that, it immediately takes away the fun or the unplanned feeling of bumping in to someone and connecting. 3 years ago
    • Happyhesgone Errr...Barnes and Noble on a Saturday night...magazine section. (Don't ask me how I know this.) 3 years ago
    • Casanova44 I have tried dating websites, however nothing beats meeting a person through mutual friends, it breaks the ice much better as it provides reference to how great you are right off the bat. 3 years ago
    • Stacy I have a good friend who met her husband on Match. They are perfect for one another and he is a true catch. So it definitely can be done, but she met a lot of frogs before meeting him :) 3 years ago
    • mwaters at work. like, two desks away. 3 years ago
    • Newyorknative My friend met a great guy on eharmony. He adores her and treats her really well and she is so happy. He's everything she needs and deserves to have and nothing like her ex husband. It took her a while to sign up but once she did she embraced it. It took a few dates before she found someone but she did. She didn't have any other opportunities to meet some one. She was 50 in good shape and attractive but honestly where do you go to meet a man at that age. I did hear that Match tends to be people who are rebound dating and eharmony are people really looking for long term. At least that's what she said. 3 years ago
      • anonymous1 Wish dudes would come up to me and ask me out. Didn't that used to happen? Is the art of "asking someone out" over? 3 years ago
    • alphabeta There are Lot of new ones out there... 3 years ago
    • erinnn Trying to remember his new one where they link you with your existing social networks. It's brilliant . 3 years ago
    • dynamic We're only limited by our skill level at attracting a mate so anywhere. A place doesn't dictate the quality of people (though it may be an indicator). People in the club are [insert negative view here]. What about those people who were dragged their or came out for a birthday party? You're obviously in there for those very same reasons. Book stores? If you're looking to meet people there, then so are others. If this is the case, does the fact that they are in a books store really mean anything? Gym? Yea, there are a lot of posers but other people are just there to work out and leave. What happens when someone else happens to catch your eye while you happen to be at the gym? So are people in gyms to be avoided? 'Tis only our self-limiting beliefs that limit us and and (for this subject) the amount of meet up spots. 3 years ago
