By Femail Reporter For Mailonline. From picking a flattering photo to coming up with a witty bio, online dating can be a veritable minefield. But it seems some singletons are so desperate to make an impression, they've gone to extreme lengths to make their profiles stand out - whatever the cost. The following profiles, spotted on OKCupid, feature people who have donned fancy dress, enlisted elaborate props and made bold claims, all in the pursuit of romance. From a Buzz Lightyear costume to boasting about a 'ninja sword', they are proof that some people will stop at nothing to get a date. Well at least he's honest!
Are these the worst online dating profiles ever? | Daily Mail Online
These days, the majority of average singletons use some sort of dating site to facilitate socialising in an increasingly connected world. A few minutes looking around any online dating site will demonstrate that not everyone - in fact, the minority - are rich, sexy, intelligent winners. Sure, you're perfectly likely to find a few decent prospects and even a long-term partner - studies show that currently, a third of married couples in America met online - but the chances of encountering more than a couple of unwelcome creepers are also unappealingly high. Of course, we've all been warned about stranger danger. Fortunately, with online dating comes transparency and a whole world of social media on which to check up on that potential date. It's a good way to avoid awkward moments or even, at worst, some seriously dangerous encounters.
I do have to thank that guy, though, because his dic-pic fixation gave me a great story to tell my single friends. I offend your morals, yet you still laugh at my jokes. It is, actually, very difficult to find anything to like about AsianTom. Not like I hit them up, though.
