Whether its through Facebook or some particular online dating websites. I myself have never tried online dating. A couple of times I did meet some friends online living abroad that I can really connect with, and we figured if only we lived near we probably would be dating.
What do you think? Would online dating work? Or is it just for people who doesn't have a life?

It doesn't work. Source: 1/3:
A brand new store has just opened in New York City that sells Husbands.
When women go to choose a husband, they have to follow the instructions at the entrance:
You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are 6 floors and the value of
the products increase as you ascend the flights. You may choose any item
from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you
CANNOT go back down except to exit the building.
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.
The 1st floor sign on the door reads:
Floor 1: These men have jobs.
The 2nd floor sign reads:
Floor 2: These men have Jobs and Love Kids.
The 3rd floor sign reads:
Floor 3: These men have Jobs, Love Kids and are extremely good looking.
“Wow,” she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
She goes to the 4th floor and the sign reads:
Floor 4: These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and help with Housework.
“Oh, mercy me!” she exclaims, “I can hardly stand it!”
Still, she goes to the 5th floor and sign reads:
Floor 5: These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, help with Housework and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.
She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the 6th floor and the sign reads:
Floor 6: You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor.
There are no men on this floor.
Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.
Two part story : link
The only girls for who online dating works are those that don't forget that there are people behind the text and not ticks on a check list.
There are a lot more lonely guys out there than girls. So girls get a lot more messages. Girls fall for the "I could get someone better" syndrome and just don't reply to guys who write nice or detailed things for her.
It might take you 5 seconds to delete 15 guys messages to you but it could have taken one of those guys hours to get what they wanted to say to you just right.
Now if you take into account that girls never take the initiative it means it will always be the guy trying to make first contact to the girl and always getting his messages deleted.
Eventually the guy will stop writting detailed messages and will spam a short generic message to any girl/spammer/fraudster with a female profile in the hopes of getting someone to reply. However this means a lot of guys send generic messages to a single girl who then gets tired and gives up or resorts to all out deleting in mass.
and so the cycle repeats.1
