Yet we're still messing up in other, easy to avoid ways.
It's as though, rather than using the extra time and space we're afforded online to consider how to approach women properly, we're using the anonymity of the internet as an excuse to be lazy, rude dimwits.
Writing an opening message that reads like a teenager texting from the back of a bus is like going up to someone you've never met in a bar with spinach in your teeth and your pants sticking out of your fly. 5 | Other profile no-no's Of course, you can write all the thoughtful, stimulating messages you want, if your picture collection looks like an Addams Family scrapbook, you're not going to get a response. Sadly, there is little you can do about your face, but there are some common turn-offs beside the aforementioned six-pack shot you can easily avoid.

They are: Myspace selfies (which seem immature and vain), excessive holiday snaps (boring), shots with other girls (suspicious), sports cars (stupid) and, finally, the bizarre trend for people – of both sexes we might add – posing next to sedated lions or tigers during some witless moment on their gap year (suggesting you're naïve, cruel or possibly involved in the illegal fur trade).
For this reason, some women may insist you meet at your destination.
It’s one thing when you’ve become comfortable enough with each other to take off the filter, but for Pete’s sake, man, censor yourself at first. If you are complaining about the people in your life, your date will begin to wonder what type of negative things you may say about her when she’s not around.
When you think about it, internet dating should be the greatest aid to romance since the invention of toothpaste.
You already know a little bit about the person you're trying to talk to, you have all the time in the world to perfect what you're going to say and absolutely none of your mates are stood at the other end of the room hoping you'll screw up so they can all have a good laugh.
There's a reason the number one tip they give you at school about applying for jobs is 'check you haven't made any spelling or grammar mistakes'.
Spelling and grammar is the written equivalent of a first impression. It betrays a lack of confidence, and besides, no one above the age of four needs a picture to understand a sentence.
