Anyone ever used Match.com?

I created a profile, but don't know if it would be worth registering.
I'd like to start dating again though.

Yeah, I guess... a 6 month membership is about what I'd pay for a new set of tires.

I met my fiance through them, and my son met his wife there. It seems to work sometimes!

Thought about it--then I realized my wife would put a hard smackdown on me.

I like to futs about with tickle.com (formerly emode.com) if nothin else they have a lot of goofy tests to waste time on. The results of some are listed on your profile(optional) including several IQ and personality tests. there is also a section of the site that is just clubs/groups sorted by interest(similar idea to yahoo groups) that also allows you to network(whoop dee do)

If a bike is old enough to be the previous generations pre-car bike and its been made into a cyclocross type bike, does that mean I like riding crossdressers my dad's age?

A lady in my office met her fiance on match.com. She has been with the guy for a few years and seems very happy. It can't hurt.. You just have to be picky and if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is..

I don't understand. Your avoiding your local bike club due to what? Men/women be there and hitting on you? Or your afraid of going on a ride and comnig across a guy/girl you may like?
I know the type. Begging for attention by saying that. You can find those type by hundreds here, just ignore...

My roommate isn't religious, but I think I got her to pray. I told her that if my parents died I would inherit part of the family shotgun and rifle collection.
That is so funny to me. Living in the triangle you do hear a lot of CH jokes. Some of the people around here amaze me.
