2. BO (fair enough).

"Hi, I'm, I dunno, Graham."
"Hi, I'm notrealname. Tell me Graham, how did you get here."
"This isn't going to work for me."
According to her profile, this girl has a masters degree.
Not to pick on her too much, but she uses the one line that tears me away from these sites every time I think, just for a milibeat, that I might be up for meeting someone anonymously again after all this time.
The line is this: I love drunken nites out wit the girlies. Enjoy going to cinema and havin lazy nites in aswell.
It's not the conjoined 'aswell,' it's not the abandoned 'h' at the end of 'wit,' it's just that every fucking second profile has this line somewhere. It may as well read: I enjoy existing.
Moving on, some other examples...
