This has also been my experience. 

I've been on three dates with women I met online. Nothing good came out of that. It made me realize that I'm better off just microwaving some spaghettios and staying home.

You got me curious about how those dates went down. 🤔😄

Oh boy... here you go. The worst one was with this one woman I met when I was totally new to online dating. I was 18 and significantly dumber than I am now. We had talked online for a couple weeks, skyped, and decided to just get dinner. Nothing fancy, just a nice little Mexican place down the road where we met up. We sat down and she was immediately very rude and demanding with our waitress, snapping at her about "did you get that" or something along those lines. This got progressively worse and worse as the date went on until she began cursing at our waitress. At that point I had enough and just got up, paid for my half plus both tips, and left. To add to this she was also making fun of our waitress's accent, which I was pretty mad about. I don't like labeling people ists and isms but I got some serious "our waitress is brown and not from around here and I don't like that" vibes. Very embarrassing and unpleasant. 

I also had one woman lie to me about a bunch of stuff which I called her on in our messages and just let it slide. She wouldn't do a video call because she was nervous. Fair enough I guess. Then I showed up to the date and she was a totally different person. Like I stood out front and some woman I didn't know ran up and says "Hi, I'm Jane (not her real name) from the app". I decided to just call it off and leave because it was too weird for me. She wasn't even bad looking or anything. Just lied about everything all the time. 

The other was normal and really nice but we had nothing in common apart from one hobby and there just wasn't a connection there worth expanding.

You can't write off online dating based on 3 dates. That's hardly a big sample size.

Those are the three that showed up. That's not counting a no show, cancellations and dozen plus women who just stopped texting me for no reason. I've always had better results in the real world. I've also never met a guy offline who had success with online dating. Even here I've seen people complaining about it. For those reasons I wouldn't recommend it. Going to conventions, volunteering, or maybe meeting people at work are all better ways to get a date.

People with success at dating apps live on another realm, we can't even see them.

At least you got three dates. I would love to get three dates! Even if they weren’t a success. Hell, would even love to find three conversations to be honest, that would be a good start.

I’ve found that many people online are frankly, bullshitters.

Yep. 

Most people, not just online. It seems to be more about what someone thinks they can get from you.

I don't trust dating apps anymore. Once I tried it and had a horrible experience. I doubt I'll ever use it again, haha!

This!

There are shitty people wherever you go. It's not just on online dating. Maybe online dating just exposes people more than real life scenarios.
