Default Legitimate question: online dating

I got spammed from some website called "datemyschool", it was my university inbox from someone with the same domain so I assumed it was legit. Of course it wasn't, it's some shitty dating service that you have to pay for. I filled out a profile and realized you have to pay a monthly fee to message people or view their messages, so I said fuck this and never signed on until I got another email saying I can have free access now.

Anyway, does anyone have experience with this sort of thing? I'm still trying to figure out who is a spambot and whatnot, but some people seem legit. It's also hard to resist the urge to post links to lemonparty and use phrases like "bo dude". How do actual humans socialize? The whole thing seems so transparent because it's basically a facade for people who want to bang each other but I can't honestly see how that differs from a shitty bar or one of those skeevy dance clubs

i used myspace to get laid and have one night stands when i was like 18 and 19, but i think that was more to fend off an overwhelming sense of worthlessness than in any pursuit of a real relationship though.

netphoria's probably a terrible source of advice on this sort of thing.

depends on you and who you meet but it worked incredibly well for me. I dated two women and one ended up being my wife. the other is still living in my basement but I do feed her well and she gets exercise in the backyard now and then.

do it. failure and disappointment is up to you.

Wasting years on a message board is one thing but usng the internet to meet real people is going a little too far, just seems crazy
It just makes so much more sense and is safer to meet random people in public you know nothing about
All IMO

i don't think there's anything wrong with it. i just don't want to feel like i'm in a pool of applicants to be narrowed down.. you could argue that that's just the interweb version of RL dating but i don't really "date" to begin with

If i tried to give any valuable advice it would be this.

Pare down your list of deal breakers.

Oh, and try not to get caught in exchanging messages for too long before making plans to meet in person. A potentially good relationship can languish indefinitely in that first phase.
