  • Avoid sounding like a serial killer “ive killed once and will do it again”
  • Don’t sound desperate “im not getting any younger, my body clock’s ticking”
  • “Don’t ponder the wirdness of others on online dating sites”
  • Never say you are high maintenance
  • Never say, you have tried everything else and online dating is your last resort
  • Blokes, never brag about your car

Listeners favorite quotes from dating websites included:

  • “i’m not a wierdo”
  • “Hi, I’m Maurice, executive by day, wildman  by night”
  • “I’ve got breasts and a bum, I dont look like Keira Knightley but im not massive”
