I have used and still do use online dating. I've had a lot of fun, but it can be a headache. You find yourself checking it all the time and taking things personally. There are lots of mean people and even more flakes. It's about sifting through lots of bad ones to find one or two that are actually worthwhile.
I'll give you an example of a good and bad experience.
Good experience: I met a girl, went on a bunch of dates, good conversation, good sex, etc. Ended it because I was too busy.
Bad experience: Met a girl, went and grabbed coffee, and really, really, liked her. I was head over heels for her. She seemed like the perfect match. Then out of the blue, she tells me we can't keep seeing each other because she isn't totally over an ex, which I never heard about. I felt burned.
So, you see, it has a lot of negatives, but if you find the right person, it could be good. It's like playing the lottery.1
