Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.

Once considered a realm inhabited only by the socially awkward, online dating is now just another tool in the toolbox, no matter whether you’re looking for a hook-up or your soulmate.....

To explore this topic, I pulled aside two individuals who I knew were hunting for a long-term relationship using online dating websites, and asked them about their experiences with the services.

And if you say you're interested in a relationship in your profile, you BETTER BE INTERESTED IN A RELATIONSHIP. If I don’t message you back, then I probably never will. It makes you look like needy crybaby psycho, and no one wants one of those."29. "Please don’t make references to how 'sexy' or 'hot' I am in your first message to me. I know how it seems and it's probably creepy to you. Everybody does it and I just think you should know, I have nothing to hide.

"Why do guys take pictures of themselves from the vantage point of their penis? Homie either bald, got a bald spot, or hairline so recessed he should just be bald already. As a fat chick, I wouldn't be able to pull that shit, the fact that you think you can puts me right off."24. "If I'm expected to look like some kind of hot trophy MILF then you better not be wearing old jeans and a Metallica shirt. It would be quite the courtesy if you would want to watch me on Skype but I know that's not for everyone.

Except this time in my polling, I cast an even wider net, and, in a matter of hours, my in-box was soon overflowing with more than 200 replies decrying everything from heartbreaking shirtless bathroom selfies to well, any kind of selfie, really. As soon as I hear ' I love going down on women; it's better than sex' I know you probably can't get an erection.

All of these responses are anonymous, a few have been combined for the sake of readability and reducing repetition.

Just because you express interest in me does not mean I owe you anything in return. "Don't call me 'babe' or 'bae' or 'sweetie' or any other such things in our first conversation. "I think men get caught up in wanting to show they're adventurous. ' is a super annoying and unanswerable question.No one in the history of ever looks cute in a picture taken from below their chin. Holding a dead animal you have shot and killed does not make you more of a man."23. If you're a bigger guy and you've got a little (or a lot) of extra padding around the middle, that's fine. No need to get naked or anything, I just get lonely and it's nice having another person around.I'm sorry, Steven Now, please, please tell me what is enraging or brilliant on this list. What did I not have enough of or totally fail to address?The two services used by these individuals were OKCupid and Match.com, two of the largest and most popular dating websites on the Internet.What I learned from carrying out an interview of a female and the interview of a male trying to dig into this intriguing subject was that using the Internet for dating is equally painful for men and for women, but for very different reasons.
