do you think they make people look desperate for love? are they creepy? can you really establish a good, decent connection/relationship with someone you met on the internet? has anyone had any success with dating sites?

Desperate for love? I don't really know what that means. I fail to see why being open about searching for a partner is strange. Sure, I think some people have really weird profiles and messaging habits, but I think just the act of registering for one is fine. It's how you use it.
As for establishing connections with people on the net, I do it all the time, on loads of different sites. I've meet people in online games, discussing things on various forums, met friends on dating sites. It works for some and not others. People who put up the arbitrary 'But we never met in person' attitude doom themselves to have no success. You can only work with the medium of interaction you have. I'd hate to miss out possible connections because I let the fact I couldn't poke them in the eye put me off.
Any success with dating sites? No, not personally. Not yet, anyways. But I think a large part of the issue is that women are swamped with copy-paste messages from creeps, while guys never receive anything because women either expect guys to do all the work, or are too preoccupied with all the other creepy shit they have to read through.0
