It certainly works for some people. I've met a handful of new friends and gotten several dates out of one month of online dating (in fact, I have a date tomorrow). On the other hand, there are certainly plenty of complaints from people who just don't get contacted or can't seem to find what they're after.
I'd say online dating works best if you're attractive (because people DO often judge your picture before anything else) and good at describing yourself (gotta say something interesting in your profile to get good responses!), and if you happen to live in or near a major urban center (giving you more choices).
As far "oh, it's dangerous" goes, I usually take the liberty of looking up my prospects elsewhere online to make sure they are who they say they are. Also, be reminded that the internet isn't totally composed of creeps - it's mostly just normal people, like you and me.0
