I originally went looking for an online sponsor--I didn't want to do the face-to-face thing.
I gave up looking and ended up going with a face-to-face, and I'm glad. I was avoiding f2f because I didn't want someone to *see* when I was bad, and I realized it was an honesty issue for me.
I combated this by not only getting a face to face sponsor, but getting one I work with as well.
I would HIGHLY recommend getting a face-to-face one if at all possible.
