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..

As our lives become more digital, I don't see how a dating app could be a bad thing. Sure there are always going to be duds online.
I've done a lot of online dating over the years. It's definitely getting harder and harder to stand out in a good way online.
Lots of people make profiles but aren't actually serious about finding someone. Or they do it just for laughs.
I would say the best thing you can do is use apps as just another tool to met people.
Get out and meet people in real life as well.
