    All very reasonable, pretty much what I was thinking ahead of time.

    As far as being shy, fellows, you have to conquer that regardless of what method you use. Luckily, I don't have that problem, mine is simply lack of area to really find a woman, plus there is a much larger pond to pick from. Never been a fan of bars, much less of a fan of the "woman" you find in them.

    I'll point out this all stems from Urban's inability to bring more females here....

    I tried it, and it didn't really work out for me. My friend who convinced me to try it however has and continues to have great success

    Punchline: You get twitter-pated.

    Tip your waitress.

    I never got a twitter account for the sole reason of saying "I tweeted". Because let's be honest, it just sounds gay.

    I've used badoo on my phone after a bad end to a lengthy...relationship. Don't have any real expectations for anything long-term, but met a few good hook-ups. If nothing else, it should get you laid.

    Hm... Perhaps I answered that poll too hastily. I thought this was asking about online in general. I can't really speak from experience, since I've never used a dating site. A few friends have, and they've basically hooked up with people, or had short term things. I don't know anyone who's entered a long-term relationship through a dating site (not sure that I know comparatively many who have searched for one).

    I do know many people who have found significant others through various chats/IRC/forums/facebook/&c., though, and are still together after several years. I encourage you to explore whatever avenues are available to you. I will say that I'm not sure you're going to escape the bar scene by going online. People are people... You've all kinds of things swimming around. Anyway, I've no further tips/cautions to add to what you already know.
