Is it likely that something is wrong with someone if they participate in online dating? How likely is it that they do online dating because they can't find someone in their normal daily life? Whether it's because of their looks or personality.

It's becoming more and more common. Years ago, I'd say maybe. Anymore, it's just convenience. For instance, once you're out of school, it can be hard to meet people. I know in my old job, I had to move to another state so I didn't know anyone, and I never met anyone my age because I was hired at 25 and everyone around me was in their 40s or older. I just didn't hang with that crowd (and none of them seemed to do anything outside of work with each other anyway), so I never met anyone, and I don't like to fly solo anywhere really. It led to a pretty miserable social life.
Then I decided to change careers, so I'm back in school again and now I'm surrounded by people slightly younger to slightly older because of my career choice, and all of a sudden my social circle has increased again and I've had a lot more people I've been able to meet.
It's all about meeting people, and sometimes you can't meet people because of your life. It's easy to do that online, and as more people open their minds to it, more join in and it's less of a stigma and just another way to meet people.0
