I think so. I've been a member of many online dating sites and have talked with at least 100 women (only maybe a dozen or so who ended up giving me their number) and it always ends with them just disappearing and no longer responding. It's frustrating and makes me think that most women with online dating profiles are only looking for an ego boost and aren't actually interested in a relationship.

How quickly are you asking for their phone number? What types of messages are you sending them? My boyfriend used to do a lot of online dating, and he said many women were extremely cautious about giving out their phone numbers and meeting up in person. Not just for safety reasons, but because some guys on dating websites were only looking for sex. So in order to get them to open up (um, figuratively, that is) he would invest much more time getting to know them on a personal level before steering things toward real life interaction.
Some people do have online dating profiles just for fun. I was one of them. But wouldn't you know, that's exactly how I met my boyfriend. Even people who aren't that seriously into online dating will give it a shot if the right person comes along. It's all about how you present yourself, so just make yourself stand out. Girls on those websites get tons of messages like "hey pretty lady" or "wassup." Be the one to connect with her on a personal level, and deepen that relationship before you try to take things further.0
