Thanks for connecting! You're almost done. Connect to your existing Cracked account if you have one or create a new Cracked username. As a child of the Internet and confirmed weirdo, imagine my relief when they finally took that last bastion of in-person awkwardness -- dating -- to my laptop instead. I've been using one of the major dating sites, OkCupid, on and off for about five years now. While it has its perks, being a woman on a dating site means immersing yourself in a disgusting cesspool of exposed nerves, unfiltered testosterone, and daily propositions to engage in sex acts so horrifying, I hadn't even heard of them before, and I'm from the Internet.
I'm new to the world of online dating , and I went kicking and screaming into the experience though it seems to be working out after all. So understandably, I'm a bit judgmental when it comes to what's going on in the worlds of Match, Zoosk, Bumble, eHarmony, and the like. Men's photos are blurry and out of focus, as if the guys snapped the photos and posted without reviewing them. I've also seen guys use photos from their past that were completely inappropriate: I'm not clear on why men suddenly remember that they need a profile pic when they're hopefully washing their hands in a public bathroom.
Navigating the online dating field can be pretty tricky but some singletons have come up with a unique way to get themselves noticed. Ensuring they stand out from the crowd, men and women have snapped startling yet creative profile pictures in a bid to snare potential partners. From stripping off outdoors to posing with unusual objects, these Russian daters take the biscuit for bizarre profile pictures. One cheeky brunette appeared keen to show off her love for noodles by filling up a bathtub with them and draping the soggy snack over her shoulders.
