Do internet Dating sites really work? In my realm of friends I only hear about a friend of a friend who knows someone who knew a guy that met the love of his life on line. I'm sure it happens but is it more hype than actual results?

I think internet is just a reflection of the overall society. If today's world values blings and shiny covers in real life, it could only get worse on the internet as it is much easier to cover your real self. And if this cover up is intentional, it will end up bad regardless of it being online or offline. And I must add that I have never seen an internet profile of someone saying, I am mildly depressed, workaholic, and am a player cheating on every girlfriend I had, to make me feel important. These rather translate as, Fun, outgoing, and social.
So to answer your question, I do believe that it might work, but the chances are probably less than that of in real life. One advantage might be the ease of browsing thru different profiles and sending them a message to start things off whereas when you are out there, you have to walk up to them and talk and maybe even buy drinks..2
