They never really build a long-term relationship with anyone, because at the first sign of a disagreement, they're back casting their line in for the next fish.

I'm too new to it to really comment extensively. I think it's a potential problem, but there are a couple ways it's counteracted:

1) eventually some of those people will come full-circle and realize that hey, if they just cut and run at the first bump in the road, they'll never get anywhere (assuming that based on your own age, what they're looking for is a LTR/marriage). It's a new way of doing things so with experience, as in all other things, you start to see what you're doing right and wrong.

2) It's a tedious process. Do you really want to ditch someone that's 95% what you want? Ultimately, if they don't get sick of it, they realize this because even if you're meeting 3-4 people a week, it takes a long time to find someone you have real compatibility/chemistry with. It took an attractive female friend of mine 2 years and I also have another friend (attractive and sweet) that met her spouse through a site.

I would be curious if you do the online dating thing long enough if some random woman will recognize you from it on the street. I could see that happening in some smaller cities. Hell, I took a look at one of these sites a while back and found two girls I know had profiles.

She's getting dicked down by her first choice. You were just back up in case first choice didn't work out.
