This last profile below gets the highest great for both the content and the creativity. It almost sounds like a poem. What I particularly like about this profile is that it shows that a woman hasn 8767 t lost faith in true love and romance but at the same time she is also realistic. The ending of it might sound a bit on a more desperate side, but all in all maybe it 8767 s not such a terrible thing to sound a bit desperate for love and connection if that 8767 s how you really feel.
Oh man, these comments are so confusing, no to mention eye-opening. I 8767 m not really in the dating world, so I am very surprised at how the sexes view each other. But maybe this is why I don 8767 t get many messages on my profile. I am independent, but I 8767 m 87. What else am I supposed to be? That doesn 8767 t make me a feminist or off-putting in any way. I also LOVE to travel. But I am not 8775 into 8776 money. I 8767 m so surprised that some men feel that way. I never knew this! I do love traveling, but I am also entirely frugal. I spent a month in Europe at hostels and friend 8767 s houses. So, I really don 8767 t understand any of this at all. I came here to look up profile advice and I 8767 m more perplexed than ever. haha 🙂
Advice: Don 8767 t believe all this girl power BS that feminists are feeding you. Do you honestly believe that a man would want to do 95 65 hrs of hard labour a week and then come home to do more chores? Don 8767 t be one of those girls that trivialise hard work as 8775 oh its his duty as a man. 8776 If everything else (eg. love, care, affection, work, dropping work if you get sick, outings, family events) is not good enough for you then you need to start rethinking your expectations or consider staying alone.
Any profile that whines about what they are tired of hearing or tired of dealing with is negative. How bout throwing in a sentence or two describing what YOU will bring into THE OTHER PERSON S life. Not lamenting about how awful you ve been treated in the past. After all, we all train others to treat us as they do. One of life s most bitter pills we all must, myself included.
I just clicked on the link below and you completely contradict yourself practical happiness. Your A profile says she is independent. However the link 6. Online Dating Advice for Women: keep this out of your online dating profile s first piece of advise is to not say youre independent. Plus your A profile s grammar is horrible. Do you have any credentials or edit this site?
Okay, I ve come across TWO.. yes TWO dating profiles so far that have the EXACT SAME.. I mean literally.. WORD FOR WORD as the one that starts off with I would hate to bore you by telling you how wonderful I am by attaching to my name a bunch of flattering adjectives. When I saw the first profile I thought it was neat, and creative.. Then I saw the second profile, and figured something was fishy.. So I googled the first two lines and it brought me here.
OK Ladies, I am going to give you a male 8767 s perspective: Most guys dont want to know how successful you are or how spontaneous you are. They definitively dont want to know you if you are sarcastic. Most guys want girls who are feminine, nice and sexy. If we want interesting conversation, we can hang out with our buddies. Why not make it sound like you are easy to get to know? We dont like jumping through hoops trying impress. Just keep it simple and sweet.
8775 I have been in the - area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people. (This first sentence says nothing eye-catching about the woman and is very bland, and boring). I am a very hard worker and love my job. I work a lot, but I know how to balance well. I enjoy
meeting new people and going to new places. (still, nothing thought provoking or attractive) I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. (Another cliché statement that is being used by thousands of other women) A great date can be staying at home with a movie and popcorn, or a night on the town. (This statement has no purpose whatsoever). I made myself a promise a few years ago to take a vacation somewhere new, out of state, every year. I have not been disappointed yet. I would really love to see Europe. (Finally something somewhat interesting that she says about herself).
Your second example shows that this person defines himself by what he does not who he is. He apparently doesn t know much about himself. Lacking a little in self confidence. Although he does express some of his interests but not specific enough. I ask, who doesn t like BBQ s? Most people like to go for walks or hiking the only difference is the scenery. Watching baseball?? would that be on TV or going to baseball games. There is a big difference. So I would have to say just about anybody could be a possible match for this person. I agree it generically boring.
8775 I don 8767 t know if the world is going to run forever, but I know I 8767 m not going to be around forever!
I don 8767 t know if I will finally meet you to warm my heart and join for a better, happier journey, but I know I can 8767 t stop looking for you, and can 8767 t stop calling you in my heart
I also don 8767 t know what life holds for me tomorrow, but I do know that we can only get older and I feel safer to get old with you. Someone to remember the days with, and to grow with.
All profiles repeat the same. Everyone is crying out to say how good they are, how cool they are, how fun they are. But how real are you, and how content are you with your real you? I 8767 m tired of the lies, of the fakes I want someone real! I want my 8775 best friend 8776 , I think this says it all!
Maybe it 8767 s about the right time, right place, right person can online dating be any good? We 8767 ll see :) 8776
I don t see anything wrong with a woman stating that she wants a financially secure guy..after all, for many of us, its a requirement!!!..Am yet to meet a woman who says she s looking to shack up with a broke a$$ guy!..To me, she appears very candid and honest and I d much rather that, than pretend that I couldn t care less about material things, when to most of us, that really matters!..Don t ask women to lie about what they want. They should be confident enough to ask for what they want and be ok with getting it.
I can t tell you how many times I have read a guy s profile and literally cringed at how it was written. It doesn t matter how good looking you may think you are, what you say and how you say it has a lot to do with how you are perceived. What you didn t mention, at least in this article, are the types of pictures that should and shouldn t be posted. Maybe it s just me, but I can t stand shirtless mirror shots. Is that all you ve got to offer? If you re just looking for a hookup, I guess it s perfect. Even worse, the shots of a guy taking his own picture in the mirror with his camera or phone, like he s so insecure he can t admit to anyone he needs help getting a good picture of himself. I am not a 65 by any stretch, but I think photos I ve posted say a lot about my personality, interests, and sense of humor, and that is what the guys I m looking for really care about anyway.
Far too many women feel it is necessary to project themselves in a manner that could 8766 capture 8767 as many interests as possible. This is a mistake because you aren 8767 t telling anyone anything real about you. Being concerned about the volume of activity only guarantees that most of the men who contact you will not be close enough to a match to bother with. Be real with yourself, and then real with your profile. By eliminating 95% of the men that aren 8767 t your cup-o-tea, you cut out a lot of aggravation.
Good point. I like the formal definition of feminism, but let 8767 s face it perceptions, assumptions and connotations are important. They might just be more important that the real definition that few people even know. Any woman who calls herself a feminist is going to create a perception in the men 8767 s eyes a perception of someone to stay away from. Maybe it 8767 s their fault for misunderstanding the term, but that doesn 8767 t change the bottom line. The same would happen to a guy who discloses to a girl that he is a dating coach or that he has a dating blog. She immediately is going to assume that he is a player and he just uses women for information purposes. These assumptions are often completely false and unfounded. That I say from personal experience. 😉
Indoorsy but likes to go out – This is
important. If you say I am outdoorsy but enjoy staying in as well, it means
that you are a more outgoing person (introvert vs extrovert). I personally prefer a woman who is more of an
introvert (reads books, stays indoors, watches tv etc) opposed to outdoorsy (going
hiking, is into health and fitness, always on the go). I’m confident that there
are better ways to express the above points, however this is just a quick
example. Again keep this in or change it to reflect the above points.
The 8775 A 8776 profile is not good. You 8767 re really going to start with saying 8775 I don 8767 t like most guys? 8776 Seems way too negative for an opener. I know if I came across a guy 8767 s profile that said 8775 I don 8767 t like most girls, 8776 I would be put off. It 8767 s not well-written, either, and doesn 8767 t make much sense. The others are pretty bad too. First one is boring (but actually the best out of the three in my opinion), second one comes on a little strong and I imagine would scare guys off. My theory on profiles is that you want to put just the basic info and show just a little of your personality and what you 8767 re looking for. It 8767 s nearly impossible to encapsulate who you are in just a paragraph, and in my experience, men don 8767 t really care to read it. A flattering picture is far more important. People, especially men, are shallower than a puddle. But even for men 8767 s profiles, this advice applies. Keep it short and to the point and use a good profile pic. Oh, and AVOID CLICHES at all costs.
VERY FEW PEOPLE look years than their actual age. Almost everyone looks their age and this is a beautiful thing. If you are 55, what is wrong with looking 55? I have yet to meet a woman who is 95 or 55 and looks like a 85 year old. That would be weird anyway. I luv and have luved every one of my ages. Some days I may look a bit than I am and some days I may look and feel like I m 685. LOL! 🙂
Ah, but that 8767 s not the same thing at all! Saying someone doesn 8767 t explicitly need to state she 8767 s a feminist isn 8767 t remotely the same as praising someone who says she 8767 s NOT a feminist. A woman who says she 8767 s not a feminist implies one thing: that she wants to be completely taken care of financially. Most likely, this woman has a job but she will expect that she keeps 655 percent of the money she makes while 8775 her man 8776 (these women inevitably use the phrase 8775 my man 8776 ) pays for everything they do together because she 8767 s 8775 not a feminist 8776 and paying your own way in life is for those hairy-armed women 8767 s liberationists.
We understand that you want us to be impressed with your pull-ups, your dead lifts, and your toned shoulder muscles. Your Yoga pose where you hold one leg near your head is awesome just as awesome as every other woman who includes that picture in her profile. While we are certainly body conscious, men don 8767 t really care about what you are doing to get there. We just like the results. Stop posting pictures of your exploits. You just come across like someone who needs external affirmation far too much for our comforts.
Also, the others thing I would add to this list is, don 8767 t post pictures of your kids! If you have kids, say so in your profile, but please, for the love of God, don 8767 t post pictures of them! First, I don 8767 t want to date your kids so I don 8767 t care what they look like. Second, are you trying to attract pedophiles? What 8767 s your end game by posting pics of your kids? Third, as a parent, I know that my kids would be HORRFIED if they found out there were pictures of them on one of their parents 8767 dating profiles. I highly doubt any of the parents who post pics of their kids on their profiles have asked their kids 8767 permission to do so, so it just smacks of exploiting your kids without their permission.
