  • I've never tried dating apps but I met both my first husband and my current husband online, started online relationships, did the long-distance thing (both times), and then got married. The current husband is the keeper, and the first husband was proof I clearly needed higher self-esteem.

    And previous responses are spot on -- it's exceedingly difficult to gauge someone's tone, intent, and even true personality through online chat. With both relationships, we moved from online to phone calls fairly quickly as hearing a voice certainly isn't foolproof but knowing their tone -- when you ask questions, when difficult conversations come up, when they're happy, angry, upset, etc -- can really help.

    If I'm ever in the position to date again (and technically, I am as we're non-monogamous but I don't have the time or energy for another partner, let alone to go looking for one), I can't imagine using a dating app, although I know it's the most common way these days.

    That being said when people ask me how I met my husband or how to meet people online, my method probably won't help. "Start a sex blog and bare your soul and body on the internet" probably isn't universal advice, lol.

          • I didn't use online dating for too long, but I had a good experience with it. I was shy my whole life, and it was hard for me to interact with girls.
