My friends and I have tried it in the past, Male and Female.  In our experience it was expensive, time consuming, and when you finally met the person they were no where near their profiles.

We found Meetups, Habitat for Humanity, and other activities were a whole lot better in meeting a person in a real environment.  We are all active outgoing and professional so let that temper our combined experinces.

We do have three (3) friends who have met their Husbands thru online dating.  Two were off of Match.com, one off of EHarmony.  Not a high success ratio, when you consider the 50+ folks I know who have done and left the Online World (6%).

Do note Tinder is a Hookup site for 20 Somethings.  It is a "do you want to **** Ap"  same with Kettle of Fish. 

There are predators out there (M&F).  Most profiles are Bogus.  Most Pictures do not show you the real person. On one the persons profile pic was 20 years old.  The list of profile deficiencies is long, positives is short.

The promise of online dating "one can find perfection between the Couch and the Refrigerator" is appealing.  The reality is far less.

I do know three woman, 2 single 1 married, who troll Match.com looking for Hookups.  I think for men it is similar numbers


Good Luck

I don't remember the site - it doesn't exist anymore, but I was dating this guy who (it turns out) was dating 12 or 13 other women at the same time. We even met in person a few times.

Huh. And didn't see "what the big deal" was when I "objected" to being part of a harem.

Other time - same website that doesn't exist anymore (wish I could remember the name of the site, it was a favorite of mine back in the day!) this guy sounded too good to be true on paper.

He was. He was full of himself and his own importance. All he did for the two days we "dated" was talk talk talk talk TALK about himself, his company, his importance, his big ass house, the mansion he gave his ex in the divorce, etc.

Blah. Blech.

Tried Eharmony once. The guy was so busy with so many things he honestly didn't have time to date. What he was doing on a dating site I'll never know.

That's it. No more online dating for me. I'm cured.

I met my current boyfriend on Tinder, and I've dated a few other guys from dating apps.

 I prefer it to other methods of meeting potential dates. I can't really just go to a bar and try and chat to guys, there are so many basic things I don't know about them, which chatting for a few days online clears up.

So yeah, it's worked out pretty damn well for me.

I tried cupid and fish in the sea, or something like that. Didn't like it so I closed the accounts.

The most hilarious people were (or are, not sure if it's still  around) on Tagged.com.   I thought it was a parody, it was so funny.   There was a movie that I can't think of at the moment with David Spade wearing a mullett.  That was pretty much what you'd get.  They'd be posing with their guns or a big fish that they caught.  It was entertaining.  I didn't join to look for anyone, I joined because...well you'd have to have seen it to believe it.  Maybe, if it's still around, things have changed.
