The world of online dating opens up a vast network of desperate fellow nerds seeking to mate, many of them with standards as low as yours, but it is a world fraught with dangers. The electronic curtain between you and your potential life partner must be parted and if it reveals the latest secret genetic experimentation by Dr Evil then you have only yourself to blame.
Humans are predictable creatures and thus there are statistically accurate interpretations to the things your online potential partner will say in order to seduce you(that's right, they may well be seducing you, and thus the hunter becomes the hunted and the cycle of life becomes a deathspiral of shattered dreams, until you wind up sucking the discarded fat from used hamburger wrappers within the urine-stained cardboard walls of the hovel in which you make your new home, dreaming of the past-moments that could have solved your life's problems, if you'd only researched online dating properly at some kind of encyclopedia-like website).

edit Online Dating Strategies
There are a wide variety of successful strategies to bringing down the online meat. If you suspect you are being 'played' by a fellow 'playa,'who is 'playing' the online 'play-field,' use this innocuous code phrase to check out the situation: "Satan tells me to collect my bodily waste."

edit Shotgun Approach
- Start by scanning a LOT of profiles - 1000 starting candidates.
- Reject 80% as incompatible.(Those too ugly, or too attractive) - 200 remaining candidates.
- Send a standard message to each profile. 80% will reject you - 40 remaining candidates.
- Chat online with these dregs, and try to gain their trust. 50% of these will let slip how Bat Fuck Insane they are(or you to them). 20 remaining candidates.
- Meet the remainders in person. Further advice is outside the scope of online dating, but how can you go wrong with 20 people, right? Right?
edit Sniper Approach
Do NOT take no for an answer.
- Start by picking your 'mark' - the person who you will spend the rest of your life with, one way or another.
- Make various dummy profiles and chat to the mark with each, using stolen pictures and profile text. Take detailed notes of the mark's likes and dislikes. Be careful not to reveal your devotion. Kill off any fake profile if they look like they are being liked too much.
- Now that your information gathering is complete, make you 'halo' profile - the perfect incarnation of your mark's desires. They will fall madly in love with you online, and will be prepared to overlook your numerous flaws when they finally meet you in person.
- Go on that first date, and very importantly don't...Outside of article scope
edit Threatening Video Approach
Play hard to get hard and make them want to get you more.
- Have your buddies do a terrorist attack.
- Make sure she knows you planned it.
- Hide out in a cave and continue to post dating videos until you get what you want.
edit Torpedo Approach
Not every encounter is about finding romantic love...apparently.
- Pretend to be a 14 year old girl and go to appropriate chat sites until an older man starts talking to you.
- Gather a long history of him flirting with you.
- Convince him, somehow, any-way-possible, to give you his email login and password. Ex. "My mum wants to check my emails and I will have to delete my account today, but I really really want to keep talking to you. So, pleeease, just for tonight, can you...etc"
- Email to every address in the account a detailed description of what you've done and the text of your conversations. Lean back in your chair and smile...
edit Tower Approach
Each princess has their matching prince charming - this approach will enable the two of you to meet.
- Put your picture on your profile, despite how many offerings of people wanting to pay you for sex it is likely to cause.
- To enable you to get through the mountain of desperate pleas to meet you, instantly junk any message that isn't coupled with a fantastical picture of divine beauty.
- Now that you have culled the herd down to the prime females or alpha males, you must test their personalities. How far will they go to have sex with you? Tell each that you have some kind of genital disease.
- Your true love will not be put off, no matter how many diseases you tell him/her you have, or they have now caught. And, like the fairy tale, you will live happily ever after making perfect new princes or princesses, for others to worship.
