That's great to hear. Sometimes online dating doesn't work out but sometimes it does. Like you said, you can also end up making some good friends from online dating. So even if it doesn't turn into a relationship at least you got to meet someone new as long as their not too crazy. LOL.
Actually, I met my boyfriend through Facebook and we've been together over a year.
I also have a pretty cool movie buddy that I meet up with still that I met during the time my bf and I were broken up. Which I met him through the platonic friends ad thing on craigslist. Haha.
It just depends on the person if they like online dating or not. Sometimes it can be tiring but sometimes it can be fun too.
