I'm not necessarily referring to tinder? Sites like OKC, POF, Match, etc. People tell me that the people on there only want to have sex/hookup. But, you hear other stories of people getting married and such. I've always been single and am in my early twenties. I know meeting people in person is the best way, however, I am very shy and don't open up to people easily at all. I try online to see if I can break the ice easier that way. I would like a relationship since I've never had one and am somewhat depressed about this.

From a mans POV, I think they suck. Something about a chance in person encounter goes so much farther than a profile where you are trying to sell yourself. Not to mention the weird guys that taint the water. I think most normal women have to really be highly interested to even arrange a meet. They are being choosy because they are afraid of the weirdos.
But I also noticed another weird thing. There are a number of women consistently on in my local area. Many of the same faces still online I saw on there 4 years ago. You wonder what the hell the deal is..0

I’ve heard mixed things and I’ve experienced mixed results. My current boyfriend is someone I met on OKC and it’s the best relationship I’ve ever had, but not all of them are like that. For example, he has shared many online date horror stories of his own and they’re pretty bad. My best friend dates online a lot and hasn’t really had good experiences either, he says many of the girls ended up being crazy (same as real life, too, I guess).
It’s honestly just luck if you find a good guy/gal when trying to find a date online. Just have to take precautions to ensure your safety if you’re planning on meeting up with any of them. Dating sites like OKC, POF, and Tinder have a higher possibility that the members are just looking for a hookup - especially if their profiles are less detailed and their pictures are on the shallow side.. like drawing attention to their body and are more revealing. Sites like Match, where you need to pay to get to know members, are less likely to match you up with someone looking for a hookup alone.
Online dating seems bad, but in today's society it's the easiest way to meet potential suitors and it's not all bad.0
