Just for fun, what are some of the funny or strange things you've encountered on online dating sites?

I just received an email from a guy who cropped out his ex-wife from their wedding picture. You could tell tell because there is this white veil sticking out from the side of the picture.

Another guy said in his email "You seem to have a lot more going for you than your libido." What??? That's supposed to make a good impression...what is with this men?

I had one guy send a picture of himself naked without the stratgically placed shampoo bottles.

My all-time favorite is the guy who posted a photo he took of himself in the bathroom mirror--naked. Mind you, he had strategically placed shampoo bottles to keep it from being completely X-rated (but just barely), but it was just so sleazy, so inappropriate. The sad thing is, I liked his profile and probably would have responded to him had it not been for this photo.

One guy had e-mailed me and he only had one photo posted of himself with sunglasses on. I asked if he could post more photos. He posted just one with a shepherd's costume on. Don't know if it was from a Christmas play or Halloween, but I didn't bother replying.

One guy had a photo of him and his ex. He had scratched devil horns on her head and scratched through her face. I don't know what woman would respond to any of his e-mails, but sadly there are women out there who just might.

I'm no longer on online dating cause I met my man on Yahoo a year ago, and we plan to be together forever. ;)
