Most Helpful Guy
I have done it. Main key point to make, have a social life and don't take it seriously, but be serious about meeting. A lot of social dysfunction men and women are on it. Keep it short and simple and meet them in person ASAP! Don't spend time emailing back and forth. Just collect phone numbers and fit them as quick meets into your schedule. Do not commit to a long term date on the first date! This sounds like "serial dating" but I am only talking about meeting people for first dates until you find one you like(unless you want to date multiple people).
A lot of girls like to endlessly email, do not fall into this trap because you end up with a fictional image of what this person is like all based on your hopes of who you think she is. A lot of guys are shorter and fatter than their photos and a lot of girls deliberately take misleading photos hiding their weight. The pretty girls tend to have unrealistic expectations and a big ego from their inbox being so full. Ignore all profiles with "shopping lists" at the end. So good luck trying to meet those.
Keep first dates short and simple until you can say "Yea... she would be nice for a real date." You don't know the person yet regardless of how many emails and texts you have exchanged.
