What do you mean you're confused?
I guess what I'm trying to say is that if I could write a letter to myself and send it back two weeks it would probably read something like this:
Dear Not quite awake:
Remember when you first tried internet dating and how it was kind of cool to get the attention at first but, after weeding through all the douche bags and foreign language speakers, you were left with nothing but disappointment because no one was contacting you? Remember how you used to check your email every day with anxious anticipation, hoping that the guy you were talking to, but had never actually met, had sent you an email and then you would feel like shit when your inbox was empty? WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT DO YOURSELF AGAIN?!
I seem to remember reading in your(awesome) blog about how you really liked being on your own and how you really weren't looking for a boyfriend or whatever so what the hell? You sound content with how things are. It seems very odd to me that you are thinking about again allowing yourself to place so much importance on an email alert.
Yes, I know your friends tried it and it worked for them but their self confidence might be a little less fragile than yours and, when faced with possible rejection, they might not revert back to their younger years when the desperation to be liked and accepted was the driving force behind all of their actions. Hello high school.
So, before you join another internet dating service, remember this: A crush developed on someone who you meet online, will almost inevitably end in disappointment. And I know you will eventually develop a crush because that's what you do. You are happy now with what you have. Close your laptop and venture out into the real world to meet people there. I guarantee you it will be worth your while.
