Who cares who you really are? Nowadays, women will judge you according to what they see on your online profiles.

We teach you how to keep your cyber rep clean and never get blocked from her timeline again! Scroll down now, douchebags!

Just because the likes of Anne Curtis and Solenn look good while at it doesn’t mean it’s generally acceptable. “Simply put, it looks gay,” says Jhoanna, 23, accounts manager. “It’s enough that we girls know that you take care of your face, at the very least—no need to show gratuitous photos of yourself really.

Did I get mad? No, I felt sad for him.” Think of it this way: If you can’t keep a personal matter to yourself, then why should other girls trust you?

4. You’re alive! And so is every one else...

'WiFi isn't working. I can't post "I can't sleep" on Facebook!'

“Just woke up.” “About to take a shower.” “Getting ready for work.” “Didn’t eat breakfast—dieting!” “Bored.” “About to sleep.” Really, you think you can raise a family by posting by-the-minute updates
of your daily activities? If you really want to impress her, how about you try getting an actual job?
