Does it seem to anyone else that they find better girlfriend/boyfriend potential people on GirlsAskGuys?
Like I meet so many girls here that I wonder why I can't find girls like them where I live. It seems like I have bad luck because if I just lived in an area more populated with girls like them, I'd be so much happier.
Any other thoughts on this?

Well, I think that there ARE people in your area like the girls you meet on here. However:
1. People on GAG are automatically open about their views/opinions, since this is an advice site. In real life, you have to meet and get to know people to get to know their views/opinions, and that generally takes more time and effort.
2. It's kind of a luck game as to whether or not you meet people who fit what you're looking for in a relationship. You're bound to meet a lot of people who don't, and you might not approach people who do (perhaps you don't find them physically attractive, or aren't initially drawn to them, or maybe they're already in a relationship).
3. Keep in mind that this is the Internet. People sometimes misrepresent themselves, believe they are a certain way when really they're not, or give what they think are the "correct" answers/opinions about things, but that doesn't mean they actually adhere to those things in their own lives (i.e. most girls will say that they're "down-to-earth" and hate drama, but in reality, a lot of these girls are the opposite; or a girl might talk about how important she thinks trust is to a relationship, but in reality she's very mistrustful toward the guys she dates).2
