Pros and cons of dating sites

One of the top New Year's resolutions is always to find love.

And though there are plenty of ways to attract the opposite sexand plenty of bars to check out, it's online dating sites that tend to reap the rewards of the post-holiday slump.

I’ve never been one to hang out at bars, so I decided to give online dating a whirl.

Let me tell you, it has been an interesting ride to say the least. Consider these statistics: In 2010, 17% of people who got married met on an online dating site.

In the end, if you’re looking for a good match, they’re usually worth the investment.

If you’re about to head into the world of online dating, you’ll want to know what you’re in for.

Eight months after going through a divorce and becoming a single father, I recently decided to get back into the dating game.

My free time, however, is at a premium, considering that I work a full-time day job and run two side businesses from home.

Moreover, many of these sites are completely free, and the ones that charge fees usually keep their rates at reasonable levels.

I think people are hoping for a “meet cute” story, something Woody Allen or Nora Ephron would have cooked up, with a dash of the Food Network thrown in.

But when I tell them the truth—and I always tell the truth about it—this mix of surprise and disappointment crosses their faces, right before they blurt out: “Really? There’s no sense of shame or failure on our part, no completely fabricated story about how we got together.

I’ll start with a brief overview of how it works before I get into the pros and cons and then offer a few pointers. If you’re using one of the popular free sites, you’ll start by entering some personal data, from height and maybe weight to race and religion.

Plenty of fields will be optional, and all of the sites are a little different when it comes to what they ask, how they ask, and what you’re required to answer.

    Dating, as many women will tell you, can be a great, steaming pile of suck. They text you late at night with one thing on their minds. Another girlfriend said “yes” to a guy she had zero interest in because she couldn't afford to eat out and he'd offered to treat.

    Otherwise, perhaps you can convince some lucky person to come visit your lookout tower? So be sensible and keep your Facebook, Twitter, and other social sites separate from your dating life!
