Love rather than 1 night stands?  I think I'd call it "lonely people".

While the application is less predatory, it's a similar mental approach, which is "don't be yourself and expect the sex-of-interest to really like you, you have to play head games and trick them into wanting you".

You can find this exact same approach in women's magazines and self-help books going at least back to the 1940's; it basically feeds into women's insecurities and tells them that they need to tailor everything from their makeup to their interests to appeal to a man's sensibilities.

Even before reading this thread, I was going to say "Cosmo magazine dating tips".  Also it's breakup revenge tips.

I don't often consider people outside of certain political magazines to be literally psychopaths, but I'm willing to make an exception for Cosmopolitan.

Cosmopolitan is so absolutely batshit insane that it could be used as a guide for how not to behave.

It's one of those rare exceptions to to the rule that reversed stupidity is not intelligence.

If Cosmo writers said the sky was blue, I'd ask for a second opinion.

And you'd be wise for doing so, because the sky is actually lavender.

I am actually fairly certain that Cosmo is targeted toward a very specific demographic, which is wealthy young urban sociopaths.

God i read this and immediately thought of what i would tell my hypothetical future daughter who reads Cosmo.
Me: Look, sweetie i saw this under your bed and i think there's some things we need to talk about.
Future Daughter:What? it's just a fashion magazine.
Me: Yes, but i'm worried about what would happen if you followed any of these sex tips.
FD: Dad, i know about using protection.
Me: no, i mean that if you ever.....*looks at article* "shake your man's testicles like a pair of gambing dice" HE WILL LEAVE YOU.
FD: But the magazine says it drives guys wild!
Me: If by wild you mean filled with a deep passionate rage, then yea, it'll totally do that.
FD: You mean they don't like it?
Me: I mean they hate it. If there is one thing men of all colors and creeds hate and fear, it's having their privates abused.
FD: Then why would they put that in there?
Me: To ruin your life, sweetie. The fashion magazines are doing their level best to try and ruin every chance of happiness you'll have from now until menopause and the sooner you learn that their advice is the spite filled venom of sociopaths who resent your ability to love, the happier you'll be.
FD: Thanks dad!
Me: you're welcome, hun. Now here's twenty bucks. Go see a movie. Your mother and I are going to try all of these tips in reverse and see if it gets us anywhere.

Personally, I like how suspicious signs that your boyfriend is cheating on you, like "being happy" or "taking an interest in your life" means you should sleep with his best friend in order to get revenge.  I mean, it just makes sense.

It's Cosmo Logic, in which taking the single most destructive possible course of action in your relationship will keep you one step ahead of the enemy, who in  this case is your boyfriend.

Ok I tried to read the first one but had to back out when I saw the add "never eat these 5 foods and lose a bit of belly fat every day" and a giant banana. The arrow to find out more simply said "never eat".

I think that's probably the gist of most dieting advice for women.
