Of all the hilarious Tinder moments and hideous dating profiles, our favorite online dating concept is now: man-fishing, catfishing for men. It’s a greedy, messed-up dating world out there where everybody wants someone hotter than they deserve and nobody is happy with what they already have. So what do people do to attain these hotter-than-necessary flesh trophies? They get creative. Whether in their misleadingly sexy profile pictures, their well-thought out responses (likely stolen from ’90s rom-coms) or the complete facade that shields you from seeing the real them (the acne, the back hair) these men are bold, well-trained and dangerously cunning with their online dating seduction methods (and photoshopping of abs).

Take a look at these 10 man-fishing examples to get a good taste of the rotten tricks men play on women in the online dating world. It’s only fair, given that women have been catfishing men since the  days of shadow games on cave walls. Is it right? No. Is it funny? Oh, hell yes. Does it work out in the long run? Only if there’s alcohol. But for us, it means funny photos, endless dating jokes and the hope that we, too, don’t get man (or cat) fished with a good helping of comedic karma in the sex and dating world.
