I'm a young (22yo) shy guy, I'm more of a housefly and don't get out much.
Occacionally I go out with friends to a bar, but when we go we're always with a group of 15 or so (all the girls in our group are involved with one of my friends from the group). This leaves very little room for me to "meet" new girls and talk to.
On the rare occasion that I do get to meet a new girl, she either has no intrest in me other than being friends. Or I just have no clue on how to pick up hints and I really doubt they are leaving hints for me.
So I was wondering if I should start doing some online dating? I know that in my country (belgium) there are some really good sites, but all of those require payment for membership. And i don't plan on paying membership unless i know it's worth it.
So I wanted to ask you guys, do you think it's worth attempting to online dating when you are still so "young"?
And have you girls/guys had any experiences with this? Were they good or bad, please tell me more about it?

I've only started online dating in the last year, and I'm a fair bit older than you.
It's a weird experience at first, everyone is very shallow and strange and you might find someone who suits you perfectly, you send them a really nice message - and get no response. This will keep happening and happening. You need to avoid getting discouraged, eventually you'll figure it out and will start having more luck, more conversations, more dates.
I've had some good experiences, such as seeing girls regularly for dates and more ;)
I've also had bad experiences, like people who lied about their weight, lied about their intentions or wasted my time.2
