I actually met my current boyfriend through an onsite dating called Love###Lycos. Hey it's not my ideal way to meet someone, but it works sometimes! Being a single mom, I find it hard to get out, so I did it more for that reason that not to go to a pub or something. I love nothing more than a night out on the razzle ut sadly I cant do it that often
One disadvantage is you can be easily fooled, and don't take everything people say to heart! It;'s too easy to lie over the net for a lot of people I find.
