With all of the dating sites out there now, you have tons of options. Most have a free option that gives you partial access to their site, so that you can get a feel for it, and see if that site will work for you. If it does, pay for it. Dating sites are a great place to meet people. You already have their stats right there, so you can weed out all of the people that don't meet your standards. I think its easier to find people with online dating, rather than in a bar or club. You are in the comfort of your own home, no loud music (unless its your own), its not hard to hear the other person, etc. And then you get to meet them on your own terms - at a coffee shop, downtown at a club, etc. And remember - go on lots of dates. Sometimes it takes a few dates with different people to find one you really like. Don't get discouraged if the first date doesn't work out. Its a process, and its worth it.
