Go for it, but be smart. Check him out, meet in a public place, don't share personal info, don't loan him money for ANY reason ... And come here to tell us about your dates as soon as you get home!

I am easing into it. I am just trying to get more confident. It is a process trying to tear down walls that I have put up because of health issues and such. I have come to realize that it will take a very special person to understand what I have been through and what I will continue to go through.

I thought that years ago that my best friend would be that person but the more I dealt in with my feelings for him the more I realized that he was like a brother who had always been there for me and that there was not a spark of romance in our friendship. My family was disappointed and still hope that someday we will come to our senses but we both know that we are just friends and it is a brother/sister relationship.

One word, CATFISH!

LOL, I'm just kidding. Internet Dating can be successful, I know a couple who have been married for almost 10 years stemming from an online relationship. You just have to make sure that you are in deed talking to the person who they say they are, and if one day you do meet in person use your own judgement from then on.

Someone once told me, "Do what you need to do, and everyone else will adjust." The same person told me, "Once you stop living on the judgments of others, and start on yourself, that's when others cannot stop giving advice."

Do what you gotta do MissSL!

Plus, it's a new year! What a better time to jump into the dating scene?

Thanks guys! Y'all have really given me some great advice. I just thought that 2013 was the year that I finally start getting out of my shell that I am in. I know that it will take some of the people in my life a while to adjust to my trying online dating when I tell them. I have already set a boundary of some sorts to be cautious of when I am talking to someone. Hopefully a spark of romance will happen but if it doesn't then I know that it is not in God's will right now for me to be in some sort of relationship

It can be a blessing or a curse. I know 4 people who met their dream match and have happy marriages. I know a couple people who only meet losers. If you check em out good, I'd go for it!!
