Online dating was a huge, depressing waste of time for me. The women viewed me as a 3rd world peon (even though they are from the same country) and didn't deign to respond to me. Sad, but that's how the world works. There are a lot of fake profile pics and scammers as well, especially if you are talking to a woman from Asia. Always do a google image search of the person's profile pic. Sometimes they post pics of celebrities/models to get more attention.
