I also met my current GF through online dating, and she's a total hottie. Like Halladay said there is good that comes with the bad. No different then if you met in real life. But if you're a smart guy you can take advantage of online dating. If girls are used to getting crap messages, and yours is intriguing, you're already a winner.
Most people also just say "Hi" or something lame and then wonder why they don't get a response. There's a lot of subtle things you can do to get a really good response rate. You just have to be smart about it.obviously you're a super cool dude so im sure you were able to scoop up a hottie but i dont think most people are that lucky.
