You'd be surprised.
A few years back, when I was single, I was meeting the hottest women on dating sites. All of them claimed that the men they were meeting via routine social encounters were not datable -- married, gay, too old, whatever. Dating sites exposed them to a pool of eligible men. Sure, they ended up meeting men who in real life did not measure up to what they claimed in their ads. But they met many guys who were just right for what they were seeking. And who they would not otherwise have met.
My sense is, if you're good (or bad) at meeting/chasing/seducing girls in real life, you'll do exactly as well online. Online just gives you more at-bats.
But if you're batting .157 in real life, you're likely still to be a .157 hitter online.
Then again, hitting .157 on 100 dates is a lot better than hitting .157 on 10.
