I've been online dating for a bit, my question is even though I know that I am great guy. But do looks really play and important part? I understand the fact that you have to be attracted to someone, but I know that in real life I could interact with a woman very well. What do you think the problem is with online dating?

It's really easy to pass a lot of judgement on someone based on what's on their profile. And that person may not even have described themselves very well.
It's not an ideal way to meet someone in my opinion. But here are some success tips..
The more pictures you have, the more responses you'll get, generally.
If you're using OKcupid, don't answer a lot of questions because people tend to pass judgement based on maybe one of your answers to a question. On the general questions that you answer, be sure to give an explanation (if you want) explanations are always good and encourage people to message you.
Ask the person to do Skype of FaceTime with you before meeting. Most people don't describe themselves accurately or their pictures are deceiving. This way, you don't waste your time, or gas, going to meet someone that you end up not being interested in.
Don't write stuff on your profile that makes you sound jaded or bitter.
Be willing to meet up/Skype/Facetime as soon as possible. Too much texting back and forth or messaging can lead to loss of interest.
Let me know if you have further questions.0
