Have you ever tried it? Would you ever try it?

If you've used an online dating site, what were your results? Did anyone message you first, or did you have to initiate a conversation? Did you ever get a date/start dating someone that you met online? We're you ever lured in to a pedophile's den?

Just curious about the pit's opinion/experience with it.

My experience with it is that you send out a bunch of messages and get zero replies.

EDIT: To be serious though, I've met two of my ex-girlfriends off dating sites.....never been the product of a scam, but some of the stereotypes are true.....a lot of the people on there are social rejects who can't string a sentence together.....it's basically people trying to beat natural selection a lot of the time.

I have a good friend who used to use it a fair amount and he met a couple of girlfriends off there, who both turned out to be nutters.

The rest of the times he met the hot ones for drinks and then banged them..

Lucky bastard

I use OkCupid. Haven't had any success date-wise, but that's mostly just because there's not many quality lesbians in my area, until you hit Seattle. I message people/people message me, but nothing has materialized. Which is unfortunate, since online dating is like my only hope.

Really? Maybe I can meet a person as socially awkward as me and we can both be quiet together! <3

I always get lots of replies and get very close to dates with successful, beautiful women. But the strangest thing always happens. When I tell them when I am a dedicated member of the off-topic section of a guitar forum they always cut off all ties straight away

I'd think about it. I dunno how weird a date with someone from the internet would be, though. Especially since I've never really been on a date.

I have been thinking about making an account for like a year. The things that keep holding me back are, including but not limited to,

1) Got no decent photos of myself around
2) I can't seem to find too many interesting girls from my area
3) It is a female dominated market, apparently. Guys just keep bombing any girl with messages, and then it is just up to her to pick the cream of the crop.

On the other hand I hear about a lot of success stories every now and then.

I would kinda like to try Tinder for shits and giggles but it is not on Windows Phone ffs.

I've always had an aversion to online dating. It seems loser-ish to me, though I know there's really nothing wrong with it.

ehhhhh I got responses on almost everything, the ones who don't respond probably abandoned their profile after they found a match or stopped caring to check it anymore

That's what it's like literally everywhere else.
