It can work for not so attractive people too, but attractive people have significantly higher chance of getting noticed.
i am a solid 8 out of 10. i love online dating. i have gone out with classically unattractive men I've met on line. mind you their pics show they are well groomed, have interests and are good representations. those points are important to me. a funny guy who's profile shows wit who has a large nose and big ears and 20 extra lbs is way more attractive to me then a brad put who looks like he hasn't showered in a month and takes odd selfies with a computer camera. i will also say a guy who is too good looking is a turn off because i assume he is too cocky. this may not be true and i feel bad that i judge.

So, OkCupid released some statistics showing that women rated 80% of men as "below average attractiveness." This means that by default, women only viewed 20% of men as average or attractive. This also means that women on dating apps perceive "above average" men as "average", by default.
So, in that sense, attractive men have a distinct and overwhelming advantage. But only the highly attractive. Decently attractive men are disadvantaged, as well. However. That doesn't mean that average or even ugly guys do *not* stand a chance. They will have to work harder, and they will have to get their profile to stand out. Short and sweet.
Second is actively messaging. And, it's not *that* hard to stand out when most of the messages women receive are either "hi/hello" or "pls suk my dik" or "wooooow ur so hot".
As for women, we all know the hotter ones have a distinct advantage. But, the same concept applies here. Ugly women have it the worst, because guys don't change their minds on physical attractiveness based on personality characteristics, like women do. But, guys can still become interested in an ugly woman, based on her personality characteristic or her "game".
But I would say that dating apps *can* absolutely work for people who aren't attractive. They just have to work harder. Same as anything. Same as people of average intelligence vs those of genius intelligence. Doesn't mean those of average intellect cannot succeed. Just means they have to work harder.
The end result of all this is: GAME WILL BEAT TYPE EVERY SINGLE TIME.
I have a number of catfish accounts. I know I'll never be able to meet the women that I talk to as it might be a bit suspicious when my face doesn't match my profile. Still, I like being able to just converse with women, something that is impossible if I use photos of myself.
