I think it started out as a good idea and some of the sites were successful in generating long lasting relationships. However these days they are worse than a local dive bar and would only suggest you date online if you are looking for a hook up; even then you are taking a big risk.
I think online dating takes commitment and it depends on how much someone loves themselves. If someone is too scared to ask someone irl and then comes to you, they may go to the irl person after they are with you once they gain confidence through you. Or you become the side thing or the other person. Of course over time in a relationship. I've been in a long distance relationship for two years and it has its problems. I really want to hold my love in my arms and hug her when I can't. Depends on how committed you are and the risk can lessen as it goes into the relationship and both partners believe that it will work out. Just dont rush into anything you aren't comfortable with or you might just be taken advantage of being easy.
Online relationships are hard. Are you willing to deal with it? I am.
