As I see it, online dating is pointless for almost all straight men. Why?
1. Women are suspicious of single guys anyway: "Why is he single? What's wrong with him?" A guy who is so single that he needs to resort to online dating must be a loser: that's how women see it.
2. Women get far more 'approaches' online than offline. Even a below-average woman would be difficult for a guy, of whatever quality, to get online. Online, you're competing against all the usual guys, plus all the shy guys who don't approach offline.
I think the only straight man who should resort to online dating is one who looks like a supermodel (and therefore is good enough to overcome problem one and problem two) but who isn't charming (and therefore isn't successful with offline approaches).

You are right on the money . Some Men are desperate to secure date and are sending messages to every female regardless of her level of attractiveness. Friend of mine even changed gender in his profile from male to female without changing pic and he started receiving messages ! Number indicates amounts of unsolicited messages received link
As a result of this attention most women have inflated sense of their own attractiveness.
And they start to aim for hunks out of their league . Here are some screenshoots taken from fake male model account one link 2 link link link
So as you see If you are an average looking guy the only use of online dating is trolling shallow women with your fake male model profile .
