I tried Tinder but nothing in terms of 'dateable quality' ever materialized from it for me.
Usually it was just flirting, but would never go anywhere. One girl I did connect with ended up standing me up on our first date - which I specifically got off work an hour early for - so that soured my taste for that scene. There are many many people coming to Calgary men and women who are looking to meet new people, and explore the dating scene. If you find dating sites a bit awkward, there are also lots of young professional events you can probably find through your work - or things like MeetUps are good options.
One girl I ended up dating I met at a young professionals event, I found it far easier to make conversation there than trying to start it from scratch on a site.
Spent 2 years on both okcupid A-list and ehamony. Got 0 decent connections on okcupid and about half a dozen decent girls on eharmony. I spent only a bit of time on it and not only is the quantity low, but so is the quality Barely any women in Calgary, only the surrounding areas. I was getting women in brooks, Great Falls, wetaskiwin That place is done man. Not only that, but the back and frothing on the questionnaires is a really stupid format and make sit hard to maintain interest. Three or four levels of communication before you're allowed to actually write a message?
So because you don't like the people or the way the system works it's a "fucking graveyard"? Personally I like the bit of distance that the levels of communications give you. I'm not particularly comfortable just walking up to a girl and talking to her, so being able to ask a few questions and get to know whether or not we'd be compatible before actually writing a message to her is quite nice.

I'm still finding nice girls on there and they're not all "horse chicks". Itsbig72 just uploaded a photo Brooks, Alberta, Canada days ago. I found OkCupid to be far more friendly easier to have conversations, etc.
I'm little older than you if 86 is any indication, so the women I'd be interested in LTRs with, just aren't there or are very poor quality. If you're in the dating game and haven't learned to stay away from horse chicks yet, take some advice - stay away from horse chicks. Has more working class women who can't afford to pay for a dating site compared to the pay sites.
But any quality girl is getting hundreds of messages a day, good look competing with that. POF is mostly about your pictures, not personality. Wastes less time because as a guy you can just like everything in a few minutes and let the women decide which is how it works anyways.
If you meet this, it can work wonderfully for you. Basically women get tired of reading hundreds of "want to fuck? I like this site because your messages at least get read by the women but it's not cheap. Works for some people, I guess. Suffers from the same symptom as POF with the signal to noise problem.
I thought it was a waste of time. That means that those hot women you end up seeing online are usually fucked up in some way. Many of these women just troll these dating sites for months or even years, just rejecting thousands of men. Don't ask me, but they do it. Bonus advice for women - get your face out of your phone for 5 minutes and try making eye contact and smiling at some guys.
That's all you really need to do. That second last paragraph is church. I used to online date a lot, mostly through EH. I found that online, I could only date girls that were lower quality than ones I would meet and date IRL. It's like if you can date 8's in real life, you'll be pressed to meet up with 7's online. I think it's because the top girls online are bombarded by guys and they have more selection.
Kind of a supply demand attractiveness curve online. As well, there are so many quality girls that are not on an online dating site. But IRL, the bombardment isn't there and people are more real. OK cupid is my favorite, its the cheapest and I've had the most luck with it. Match is expensive and the UI sucks big time. Not a site but grab yours or a friends dog and head to an off leash dog park.
And the topic of conversation can be their dog since they would love to talk about it. Plus if your dog humps their dog they are basically DTF. I had great luck on eharmony.
