10 dating rules for guys stock option backdating restatements

Let's face it, when it comes to meeting the next Mr or Ms Right, we could all do with a little help.

Launch the gallery to read about and view more of our seven dating tips for men.

Unless you work in a totally male milieu – for instance, a urologists’s office, NASCAR race track, or beef ‘n’ ale house -- your quest to meet a man will take you to the Internet.

The good news is that you’ll find thousands and thousands of guys online, all trolling for dates.

On the other hand, be prepared to spend hours and hours learning how to sort the wheat from the chaff.

Here’s our crash course on the DOs and DON’Ts of cyberdating.

DO post a recent photo, and write an honest description of yourself.

One of our guy friends salivated over a picture of a pgorgeous, blonde, bikini-clad model.

Expecting a Cameron Diaz look-alike, he was shocked to meet a morbidly obese woman in a moo-moo. On the other hand, we’ve dated men who were relieved and delighted that we simply looked like our pictures.

(And believe us, we’re not Cameron.) They were grateful enough to stay through the crème brulée.

DON’T naively assume that his photo is as up-to-date and accurate as yours.

We accepted a date with a guy whose head shot looked perfectly human, even normal. For instance: DON’T get taken in by corny, overused come-on lines like, “Looking to spoil the lady of my dreams with flowers and candlelit dinners.” And beware of perfect strangers who promise to “snuggle with you in front of the fireplace” and “enjoy sunset strolls on the beach.” These guys have one thing on their minds.
