I've done online dating. It's definitely a bit more of a benefit for women. I did it because I can't stand bars and finding new guys to potential date is a bit tough when you work 50+ hours a week and you live in a small rural town.
So far, the two guys I've talked to and met (just starting this whole online thing LOL), I messaged both of them first. One was definitely based off of how attractive I thought he looked and we had similar interests. The other, I liked what he wrote, there wasn't a picture but since I've met him, I still think he's attractive too. I'm quite happy to be honest. The few guys who messaged me, I only replied to 2 of them (out of 10 or so, I don't get many messages). Neither one was interested in ever meeting. Which is fine. I think I've messaged 6 guys in total, 5 replied and two actually wanted to meet.
There are a lot of odd profiles online. I tried to be as honest as possible in mine which I think adds to the apparently low number of messages I've gotten (been there for about 2 months). I'm average-looking but with a lifestyle that not many guys want to deal with. Both of the two I've met and still talk to (got some dates planned) work in the same industry. We would have never met in real life because none of us really go out.
I'm still saying its more of benefit for women because in the end, one of those two will end up not too happy. I still get the final choice. It's more concentrated in online than in offline but its different too. There's less of a chance for friendship. And it is focused on looks for a big part of it but that's the same offline. I will say, I have no problems approaching guys in the real world. I'm not shy, I'm just quiet and working all the time.1
