    I had originally deleted all of mine with the goal of putting my focus on meeting women in person but came to the conclusion that there's no reason to limit myself like that and that I should be doing both so that I have the most opportunities possible to meet the right kind of person. I think pretty much all the stigma associated with it has gone away these days too now that so many people are doing it.

    Do you guys use this at all (or did you for those already in relationships)? How would you describe your experience with it and what worked or didn't work for you?

    My only experience with online dating was "going out" with some guy from Edmonton for like 2 months when I was 15... I never had any intention of meeting him :P
    I think if you understand that the odds aren't that good and accept that only 1 out of every 100 people will look like their pics.. it might be worthwhile :gjob:

    I'm going to have to invent some kind of SIF filter.

    It's easy, just ask for a recent full body pic. Make them hold a newspaper with today's date to make sure. Probably a few will trick you anyway with photoshop but you'll know as soon as you meet IRL

    Asking for a full body pic tends to get a very offended reaction.

    If you don't have any hobbies your odds of meeting someone elsewhere are basically none. You don't look like you do much so I would stick to online dating.
