I wouldn't exactly call them "undesirable" but yes, they are probably more socially awkward than most or have simply had bad luck with the women or men they've met in real life for whatever reasons. Probably for reasons that have more to do with them than the opposite sex, but if you've constantly been rejected in the real world then I suppose some people just turn to the internet where they can meet more people in a shorter amount of time.
They can then quickly view dozens of profiles and pick out people they might be attracted to. It's probably a bit easier because it let's people view someone's interests and personality type before deciding if that is someone they want to pursue or not. Of course, things like that are not concrete, but it does give people an idea of if they will mesh well with that particular person before reaching out to them.
Of course, I have never been into the online dating thing simply because I prefer to meet potential dates in real life. However, I can understand the appeal of dating sites for some people.5
