Women counter that they hope a guy likes them enough after getting to know them online that their looks/weight won't matter to a guy. People lie about whether they're even single, if they have kids, their job, their looks, you name it.

I suspect that the actual number of people using online dating sites that are really looking for a relationship instead of a good time is fairly small.

Let's face it, people can say anything they want about themselves online.

This article is based on my experiences in the online dating world, experiences that stretch out for several years.

I'm not suggesting that it's impossible to find someone online. I just happen to believe that online dating has been over-hyped and is probably one of the worst places to find someone to have a relationship with.

We know online dating can be frustrating, so we built our site with one goal in mind: Make online dating free, easy, and fun for everyone.

Finding a date with Mingle2 has never been simpler.

If these so-called relationship guru's had actually tried to find Mr. Right online, they would have realized what a bad idea it was and never suggested it in the first place.

Just because everyone else out there is doing it, doesn't make it a good idea.

This is by far the biggest pitfall of online dating.
