  1. Yes, I have tried online dating and through personal experiences it has worked very well for me. And the fact that so many mobile apps are available make the whole process a lot easier. Great comp! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks again B, I will let know eHarmony team, meanwhile, you are very welcome to share this article and the competition with your friends ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I have used various dating sites over 10 years with great success. I was with 1 partner for 3 years and another for 1 year. I think the stigma that was once attached to dating sites has lessened as people with busy lifestyles are finding it’s the smart way to meet people. I think it’s the site that makes the difference and you have to join the one that’s right for you and is going to give the the partner you’re after.

  4. I am married so haven’t had the need to try online dating, but I have quite a few friends that have tried it, with differing levels of success.
    If I were ever in the position of being single again, I would definately give online dating a go!

  5. I loved eHarmony and i am so glad i joined! I met my wonderful fiance and will be married in a year. He is the most lovely, amazing, generous and patient man i think i have ever met! Online dating is definitely the way to go!

  6. I used to run an online single parents group in the early 2000’s – I set it up as a friendship site however I did manage to meet some very nice men through that, as did many of our fabulous mums. I believe nowadays online dating is so commonplace that I would be surprised if the stigma is still there. A natural progression really in this technological age ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Personally I have never tried on-line dating but I know many friends have, with mixed results. It is a relatively well accepted practise in todays society.

  8. Yes definitely, I was an early adopter of online dating. I tried it more than a decade ago and had a boyfriend that I found via a dating website but I couldn’t tell anyone I met him online fearing that they’d look down on our relationship. It’s definitely lost its stigma now that many people are doing it, even my grandma!
