It's been a bit of a giggle, to be frank, although the flagged profiles have started to blend into one surreal collage of nipples, scammers, pictures of Bollywood starlets and close-ups of elbow creases.

Like a Mafia hit man faced with whacking his boyhood friend, I think it's about time I retired.

Ah, the number of online dating profiles I’ve seen with that kind of Byron-worthy poetry.

But one thing that volunteering as a moderator on Ok Cupid has taught me is that it’s not just the Nigerian scammers who have a grasp of English shakier than Greece’s medium-term fiscal policy – more depressingly, it’s local morons too.

Pro tip: asking questions on your profile gives her an interesting way to start the conversation. A corollary of the futile faceless approach is an attempt to look like a borderline certifiable artist by posting shots of yourself taken at weird angles and run through so many filters you might be looking at a bee.

While they're still hopeful enough to put up a dating profile in the first place, the Nice Guys sabotage their chances of ever getting laid with their inability to conceal their own aggrieved self-righteousness Self-pity: There are familiar laments about 'too nice' and getting stuck in the 'friendzone;' but these single men believe that being 'nice' to women means they are then 'obliged to have sex with them' The idea is that being 'nice' to women should not be the exception, nor something to boast about.
