In addition to the poll, I want to know why or why not.

I didn't vote but Ill share with you two of my "experiences". Both of which I wasn't looking for a relo and they appeared on FB, and started talking to me.
This guy I have never met full on started messaging me, flirting with me and we talking for a while. We had so much in common, it was unbelievable. I pulled away when he showed signs of desperation- kept asking for selfies and to facetime, was partly because i was insecure as well, note that he WAS a real guy, my age, and we had mutual friends
This guy from a dance party on Friday night started messaging me and from there, we clicked. He is muchh more mature, has a similar outlook of life as me, despite being two years younger than the other guy. He is also flirty, but it was subtle at first, and felt much more natural than the first guy
I don't know why i shared those stories with you, just felt like the need to tell someone, please, whatever you do, dont talk with the person for too long without meeting up (with a group that is). I believe they can work, as long as both parties are equally invested in the relationship, good luck :)1

No, I wouldn't. If you are an unattractive guy then your self esteem will be destroyed by online dating. It's infuriating to send out hundreds of messages and not get a single girl wanting to meet you. Being ignored and/or rejected even by obese single mums is very difficult to take.
If you are good looking it will work fine, but you'd probably meet a higher quality of women in real life, so why bother using it in the first place?
The only people who benefit from online dating are good looking guys who are shy, shy women regardless of looks and women who love getting lots of attention. That's it. Nobody else should ever go on those sites.3
