I dont care what anyone says -- I dont think you can ever really get the gist of someone unless you meet them face to face...

So alright now it's two "dating" sites and I have had several letdowns already, I've had great chat conversations and even found some (at least by profile) that I would be interested in. Here's a problem I had recently. I gat a "match" request from this female so I go and check out her profile and WOW beautiful as I've ever seen, interested in some of the same things and all of that. So we sent eachother a bunch of messages and she said that she was interested in me.
So I get excited and offer my E-mail addy to her, she accepts....cool so about 10 minutes latter I get an I.M and proceed to just gush over this woman and get it in return, the conversation was great and greater then great, and lasted for hours. Come to find out it was not [her] that I was chatting it up with and she had been "waiting" back on the site for me to reply to her messages,So the woman I thought I was talking to lives in Maine and wants to "escape" and thinks my area would suit her well( positive)
So during the chat I mention lobster(Maine) and this other woman was like what?? Maine?? and I say ya, like we talked about in our other messages, she says we didn't talk about no friggin lobsters..... Uh oh (foot goes in mouth) so long of the short the one I am interested is upset because I kept her waiting and the other is upset because I thought she was sombody else( I told both out of honesty) so neither have messaged me since and it's been almost 3 days now so I think I can sount both out.
Yes I do have a dog but we rarley go to the dog park because of my schedule but I'll take him as soon as I can of course not as a pick up tool but for his sake. So that's where I'm at with this as of yet so I'll possibly report back.
I did "meet" a woman and we talk on the phone but strictly as friends as she is married and legally I am too.

I'll agree there. While the internet could be a valuable tool for initial contact, you won't really know anything until you meet and talk in person, as people communicate much differently in person than they do online (as a general rule)....
