There are dating websites and apps in abundance these days but some people still struggle to find love online.

So where are men going wrong when it comes to trying to woo a woman?

Taking to Reddit, a user has asked women on dating sites to reveal what they think men are doing wrong when it comes to finding love, reported The Daily Mail.



On the forum, which has amassed over 600 responses, women explain their surprising pet peeves on people's profiles, include shirtless bathroom selfies, out-of-date photographs and pictures taken using the Snapchat dog filter.

Women admitted that they don't like men to be too cheesy or unable to hold conversations online.

They are also put off by men who want to rush into meeting. This, they say, is because the world is big and scary and they don't want to meet somebody without getting to know them a little first.

Others took to the forum to say not reading the information on their profile is a turn-off, as is asking to "hook up" when the person has specifically said that they aren't looking for hook-ups in their "about me" section.

Ultimately, women seem to tell men that the best way to make an impression is to do something different when you message. Say something that stands out and makes them laugh, they beg.


Women also claim they hate men who try to look "tough" in their profile pictures, declare themselves as "boring" and beg women for more photos of themselves.

Other ladies can't stand it when men are "too general" in their messages, use pet names straight away and can't use grammar correctly.

They also don't like it when men have pictures of themselves using the Snapchat dog-filter


Other women have said that they don't like to be asked to "Netflix and Chill" on the first meet-up because they don't know what you might be like

Ladies also dislike men who fail to read the information women have in their bios and persist in asking questions, ask to "Netflix and chill" straight away, and jump straight into sexual conversation.
