Still, navigating the world of online dating can definitely be tricky—what kind of message is clever, but not creepy?

What the hell are you supposed to say about yourself in your profile? [pagebreak] OUT-OF-TOWN AND OUT OF TOUCH The scenario: “A guy sent me a message saying that he wanted to meet up for a drink, but when I asked when he was free, he said he was ‘going out of town’ for the next two weeks and that we should schedule something after.” — Andrea, 31 The problem..the solution: If you tell a girl you’re “going out of town,” she’s going to assume you’re busy dating other women.

So, by now, you’ve got a digital dating portrait worthy of Da Vinci.

The next step in the process is selection of possible dating partners, but if we’ve learned anything from the other D, Darwin, nothing leads to the extinction of a species—or your love life—faster than impatient, impetuous, inattentive behavior. So, unless all you’re after is a string of casual hook-ups, in the world of online dating, brains trump brawn pretty much every time.

1) Pick a mature (not silly or arrogant) screen name.

Big Mikey9inch may sound clever to you, but chances are Sweet Jen28 will want nothing to do with a guy who feels the need to "advertise" (particularly when you're probably closer to Not So Big Mikey4inch).

There’s been a revolution in sexual practices that passed me by (have you seen Tinder? I’m a dinosaur – a missionary man in a reverse-cowgirl world. Inane openers do break the ice, but stop you from reaching anything deeper. I crave male company so go home and watch Expendables II. I discover that coffee dates can work when you’re not in the office headspace. I tell her I was running late and had to elbow a granny out of the way to get off the train. The scatter-gun concept works: by the time I meet my fourth woman, the jitters that can ruin a more conventional date are gone.

I meet a former colleague, C, who I’ve been lusting after for years. It’s a pretty good pie, too, but she doesn’t go over.

Have fun with your screen name, but avoid being vulgar or cocky.

Stay away from names that denote wealth or immaturity. Craig Wax, senior vice president at Match.com, recommends "coming up with a name that gives an indication of what you are all about.

So, for instance, if you like to ski and like to cook, your user name could be Skiing Chef.

Right off the bat, you get a sense of what this person is all about." Keep in mind that this is a name that might stick as a nickname, too, so nix options like Baddabing or Teddy Bear Boy. "A profile without a photo means one of two things to a woman: in a relationship or not so attractive," says Jane Coloccia, author of Confessions of an Online Dating Addict.

, like, “a guy told me he was looking for a girlfriend by next year so he’d have someone to split rent with.” Then there was the charmer who told his date about the time he “got wasted, peed and mopped it up with his clothes, and then wore them.” Um, yeah.
