No matter where you decide to go to meet people, you just got to be careful. It is so dangerous out there and you never know what you could be walking into.
Believe it or not, I met my sweetheart on Craiglist. HOWEVER, I did do he posting and had over 110 emails to review so I was able at my leisure and with a sense of security review interested parties. It took 4 months to find the right person but a small price to pay for happiness.
Be careful with online dataing. I found through my experience that so many people misrepresent themselves online, or are simply looking for a hookup/one night stand even though they say they want a long term relationship. My 40 year old 5'11" tall dark haired date turned out to be well over 60 years old, 5'7" bald and pot bellied in real life (not that there is anything wrong with that, but I felt deceived since he wasn't who he said he was - that was my shortest date on record and I think I burned my mouth drinking my coffee so I could get out of there). No lie! HA HA.
I met my BF through a mutual college/sorority friend.
