Ok, I will admit I reached probably the lowest point I can almost go right now which would be online dating, I'm currently trying Plenty of Fish, OkCupid, & Craigslist(Uber fail). My question is for all the guys out there in my position don't you find it incredibly hard to get a response from a semi-beautiful girl or normal girl even? It seems like all the efforts I make are futile. Any success with you guys?

I agree, I think there are more men on dating sites than woman. I also think you should blame your fellow men. I have been dating online and can get an overwhelming # of emails in my inbox a day. How many of them have any substance? I'm lucky if there is one. So, I may not check my email as often. I will do a search and initiate contact if I like any. Don't get me wrong I have replied to guys and gone on dates but only if their message had some substance and we got to chat a little before hand...but to be honest with with you none of those worked out. The guys that I ended up really liking were the ones that I initiated the contact with in the first place. I'm currently dating one of them now...7 mos into it.
I wouldn't give up though. It's great practice for your dating skills and also to get a handle on what you aren't looking for...LOL. But seriously, put some substance into your messages. Ask questions so they need to respond. Be witty and mention something that they wrote in their profile. Give a little more info about yourself. I would reply to the guys that actually put effort into their messages because I appreciated it. Stay away from "Your cute" and "Hey sexy" They get hundreds of those a day.
While your at it, beef up your profile to attract the girls...as I said the ones that caught my eye were the ones that I liked the most.
Good luck with your search and don't stress too much over it just have fun!1
