Wearing rubber gloves in the bath and trying to swallow a watermelon: The desperate poses of Russians looking for love online (which may reveal why they are single!)
Lonely hearts looking for a mate have been known to go to extraordinary lengths to find the partner of their dreams.
But for these people, captured in images posted on a Russian dating site, those lengths might be just a bit too far.
The images provide a bizarre snapshot into the worlds of the people looking for love - and in some cases a weird and wonderful view inside their minds.
n one of the hilarious pictures a woman, who has fashioned a mermaid costume from what looks like an ironed tablecloth, gazes seductively at the camera.
And in another, which is designed to find the subject a date, a woman takes a bathtime selfie complete with glass of wine... and yellow rubber gloves.
The men don't spare any blushes when looking for love too.
One of the pictures shows a topless man, complete with a lego-esque haircut and high-waisted trousers.
In the image he is flexing his muscles in a room that looks like it is straight out BBC sitcom Rising Damp.
Another show a man in what can only be described as a shellsuit, performing a unusual backwards high kick in a children's play area.
It is not just macho men on display, some of the boys have got in touch with their feminine side in order to attract a significant other.
One man poses in a Halloween witch's hat, while another looks to be sporting an unusual peroxide blonde mullet.
However, the fancy headpiece is actually a dead fox.
