Question says it all. Have you ever seriously tried an online dating site? And if so... how did that work out for you? I'm part of one, but the dudes on there are out for one thing and it gets pretty annoying after a while.

I have tried OKCupid and POF. Online dating is not for me, because it's harder to stand out when always being compared to the next guy.
Online dating is also incredibly unbalanced. Guys have no fear and message girls in bulk, and that pumps up the girl's own perceived value. This results in higher than normal selectivity and an overall jaded attitude.
What would work as an effective ice breaker in person is repulsive and negligent (unless you're a stud) online. When one person greets you in person, it is common decency to acknowledge him/her in return. You wouldn't say "I don't respond to (Hello), your approach is ignored. Be interesting and MAYBE I'll respond."
I'd rather keep it real than cater to artificially pumped egos. I've met a few girls that I ended up not connecting with. I've come close to many that bail out at the last minute, an unforgivable offense in my book. I've been ignored by countless girls, with a lot of them being girls that I wouldn't even find worthy of approaching in real life.
Online dating on those sites in particular, is for the desperate. Those desperate for a date or desperate for attention. I'm neither of those, so in the words of Kevin O'Leary... I'm out.0
