In person I like to think that I'm not a shallow guy and that many girls are attractive or at least have many redeeming qualities about them. I could look at a crowd of girls my age and be attracted to the majority of them. Maybe 11 out of 20.
But then I decided to play around with the quickmatch feature on OkCupid. You can either "Like" a girl or "Pass" on her, and her pictures and essays are shown to briefly skim over. All of these girls were local and in my age group.
The first girl was very, very overweight. I passed. The second girl had a very unfortunate face. I passed. The third girl looked like a guy with long hair and makeup. I passed. After viewing about 40 profiles, there was a total of 6 girls that I ended up "Liking". That's 15%, compared to my roughly 55% approval of girls in person.
Maybe lesser attractive girls resort to online dating? That's a possibility. But I did find it easier to be picky about another human being online just by looking at her picture and reading snippets of her bio. The nature of this form of interaction seems very shallow.
Are you the same way? Indifferent? Maybe you are less picky online than in person?

"Maybe lesser attractive girls resort to online dating?", yes. and yes the idea is shallow.
having a relationship with your opposite/same sex is not something you can have through online dating, or maybe better saying this way it is not slightly near to an ideal way of meeting someone for dating and relationship.
to date someone you have to know him enough first and in the real life not on the internet, and mostly people who can't have a good social life will attend it. in some cases some people who have hopes that maybe something special happens and they meet someone special or have someone who's maybe financially good fall for them or something. I had a friend who was in a dating site for fun not for serious dating and an Indian rich man wanted her to be his mistress, so there are these kinds of cases too but are rare, and mostly people in there are ones who can't meet people in real life for any reason.0
