Bachelor and comedian Sy Thomas experienced the dark side of digital matchmaking after he created an online dating profile where he pretended to be a woman. In a video about the experiment, Thomas expressed that he initially wanted to discover "techniques" from men who were "trying to woo" the female version of him online. Mucho props to this dude who probably thought there were real gentlemen out there in the online dating world.

After throwing on a wig and donning a sleek ensemble in his profile pic, Sy transformed into Simone. He shared the results in the video below:

“Receiving so many messages was certainly an initial ego boost,” Thomas said in an interview with Mashable. The comedian also said that he never encountered any messages this explicit or corny in his own online dating experience as the real Sy.

“I’d heard from a lot of female friends about ‘dick pics’ and creepy messages, but as it was something that I’d never experienced in my own online dating experience it was a real eye-opener," Thomas expressed.

In just three days, his alter ego received over 400 messages from men. The messages he received ranged from corny to sexual to painfully unoriginal:

This dude should lock himself in the chambers of hell.

What is this dude smoking? Definitely not a cigarette.

Anyone with a noggin knows that those pick-up lines just won’t work. “I just can’t understand how men can think it’s a good idea, or what they expect to achieve by it,” Thomas said.

Next time, Thomas should definitely heed some of these clever comebacks by folks who also failed to find love online.
