Give It A Try!
All I have to say to this is give it a try. Sure, you may get a few bad ones in the mix, but you could have met those guys at the grocery store or the club just as easily as online. It's how you go about the process that matters.
Still, some people are adamantly against places like Match.com, Eharmony.com, or any of the others. If that's you, try Meetup.com. You can join a singles group in your area and meet a ton of people in a social group setting. The organizers will typically have an event planned and you show up and mingle. If you hit it off with someone, great. If not, you may have met some cool people that you can be friends with.
The point is to meet people. Can't find Mr. or Mrs. Right sitting at home....it took me years to learn that!
Exactly, just give it a try. And try not to go into thinking every single person is going to be "the one," just like you won't do so at the grocery store! It's about "exploring" people, learning about yourself in the process and what you want and don't want in the person.
