dating websites....are they worth it?

Is there really any point of joining any dating websites?
Even the ones who claim to "match" you to someone of similar interests?
Speaking from recent experience of "just browsing" certain sites, I would say no they are not. Also, the last person I saw for any length of time, and just "left"...with no actual splitting up involved....I met in person
I know that some people have gained proper working relationships through dating websites, but just as many ...if not more seem to be disappointed.
One site I "browsed", (problem is you have to join to browse,) suggested I send a certain person a message, as we were a "match".
The person in question I have actually met, and I know him to be a player. In fact he told me how he usually "played". He would have at least one woman who he would be exchanging e-mail, IM and maybe phone calls with, but not actually met, at least one would be lined up for a first date, and another he would be "getting into bed". He admitted that no "relationships" lasted too long. In the time I knew him, he also started up an affair with a married woman, which to my knowledge went on at leas v3 years, maybe is still happening, I don't know, I broke contact with him as his antics began to disgust me even more.

I truly would love to find another lovely man, like the last one I saw...who stuck around for longer, but I just don't believe that anything online works well.
After all, the best relationship I have had was one where I met the person in person in the first instance, by encountering them actually on the street where I live. I doubt that would happen again....unless he came back from his home country, which is unlikely.

Crazy Adverts!

We have a supermarket here in the UK that is German owned..and is gaining ground against the usual UK supermarkets.
The layout is kept very similar...week after week...they have specials..and only they move around.
I'm talking about Aldi...throughout the year they have a "super six"...these are a selection of veg....presumably the most abundant at that time of year...the dearest super six to date has been 69p/item.
THINK about it...use the "super six" in your reduce the price.
What I especially like is Aldi's adverts...
This one in particular made me laugh

What I think it is only women need to lose weight....and it is most certainly thumbing it's nose at the "Special K" campaign"

Today is going to be a day of waiting for me.
I have to wait in for a telephone appointment with the doctor, and wait in for delivery of my new fridge.
Samantha saw this fridge on Saturday and then picked me up to go look at it.
It will be good to have a decent sized fridge again.
My old fridge, the one that died was a five foot tall 600mm wide larder fridge. The one I have been using lately, loaned to me by my friend is an under-counter 500mm wide one with a freezer compartment taking up a third of it's space inside. With doors not big enough to hold much.
The new fridge isn't as wide or quite as tall, but is just a larder fridge so I will be able to store things I am accustomed to storing in the fridge.

My new fridge did not arrive...but the doc phoned me prior to the time I was told.
50% result is better than none I suppose.
