I did use some dating sites. I actually paid for Match, and that was a bust. Then I tried OK Cupid and PoF, nothing from there, either.
Not really horror stories (except for a stage 5 clinger), but most of the guys messaging me were almost all the same. Some didn't bother with a hi, just "Let's have sex" "you down for sex" type of messages. My profile stated relationship and I said no to hook-ups.
A few guys seemed ok, but they told me they were dating 3-5 other women already and if I'd be ok with that. I just told them good luck! No hard feelings towards them, I'm just not in to that. When they started repeating the same few questions they already asked me, that's when I knew it's not for me. I want care and attention, just like I'd give my date. I don't want to be just another woman/notch in the belt type of thing.0

Leaving exceptions, I don't buy the whole online dating thing. First of all, it isn't exactly transparent. People give you an idea of who they want to be, not who they are. Secondly, I feel like dating websites are monopolized by women... Check the number of guys hitting on one woman. Its crazy... Scores of them literally. Lastly meeting online just doesn't feel the same as when you introduce yourself for the first time where you've absolutely no knowledge about the person. Its more interesting... To say the least. So no, online dating isn't something I'd pick up unless I have very casual preferences.0
