So you’ve turned to online dating because it’s the simplest way to “meet” women and weed out the crazies without the awkwardness of a face-to-face conversation. Great. It's obviously easier to message someone you would never have the balls to approach in person. But, many men don’t understand that when a woman views your online dating profile she engages in a detailed analysis that is as thorough as the one she used when selecting a college. Her thirst radar examines everything about you: hobbies, interests, appearance, style, employment, friends, family, pets, grammar—the list goes on. If your Tinder messages are consistently met with the sound of crickets, it’s probably time you take off the blinders and ask yourself, "What the fuck am I doing wrong?" Don’t panic—there’s still time to save yourself from being the salty lurker alone at the bar. Here are some of the most common online dating mistakes out there.
