I'm just thinking of giving it a try but I've heard from some of my friends that it's barely worth it for guys because you'll hardly ever get any messages from girls because they're getting hundreds of messages a day.
Could anyone advise me on this? Are my friends right?

I've used online dating for a long time and I will tell you, good luck. I personally know of girls who do get those insane amount of messages.
Here is my physique link
I hid my profile and don't use POF anymore and am giving match.com a shot.
The only girls that would message me were overweight girls who live on the computer all day hoping for somebody to love them. Some would message me more than once but nothing ridiculous. There are overweight girls who get repeated hookup requests too. If you're using free sites and are browsing profiles be prepared to see a bunch of profiles that are one or more of the following
Rants about guys wanting sex
Rants are wanting a guy who is not(list of her ex's traits that she hates about him)
A shopping list of possessions that the girl wants from a guy(things ranging from having his own place to hairstyles and college degrees)
Misleading photos to hide the girl's actual weight.
I would get a message... every couple of weeks maybe. If I was interested we'd exchange a few messages maybe and then she'd disappear.
Before I had a good physique and was trying the free sites I did go on dates. A couple of first dates and landed one relationship with a girl but she was clingy and I had to get rid of her because she had no car.
If you do start messaging girls be prepared that a lot of them are blaring narcissists. They'll be willing to tell you all about themselves yet never show any interest in you. If she doesn't ask you anything about yourself drop the self-centered waste of space and move on to another girl.0
