Hi, Alan. Good question. I don 8767 t think it 8767 s a great idea for at least two reasons: first, it remove the mystery from who you are and what you really like to do secondly, you wouldn 8767 t be able to use the same romantic things on the women you meet. No girl wants to be run through a 8775 routine 8776 that has been used before. I would actually recommend being evasive when answering that questions and saying something like: 8775 The most romantic thing I ever did is surprising the woman and not telling her what we will be doing or where we are going. 8776
8775 I went to school in the east coast, but now I work for a major software company where I work up the corporate ladder. I very busy. I love hiking, watching baseball, and bbq on weekends. 8776 the writer must be reminded that this is a dating profile not a resume or a sales presentation in front of his human resources department. Again, this profile has a very weak beginning. as a rule, you should never start your profile by talking about school or work, as it 8767 s not interesting and not really relevant to what you should be trying to achieve to catch a woman 8767 s attention. 8776
I 8767 ve seen this profile on dating sites copied word for word so many times. I recommend not using it as it is so easily recognisable because of how it 8767 s filled with stupid things no normal guy would ever actually say. Any girl who goes hang on I 8767 ve heard this before, and googles it will discover that you have so little personality that you had to copy a profile word for word.
Just describe who you actually are, honestly. Use your own personality!
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.
6) Women decide if you 8767 re interesting or not in seconds. They literally check out samples of dating profiles ! And let me tell you: they 8767 re turned off when they smell you’re wearing “Desperate Dude cologne”, which is when you’re WAY too serious throughout your dating profile. They cringe when they read profiles that say “I’m looking for Miss Right.” Maybe you’re a looker too, but women think about dating in a more casual way. They want to see if there are interesting guys around, but that’s it (for now). Don 8767 t be a looker, show you don 8767 t take yourself too seriously.
Why can 8767 t you be honest and tell the girl how you want to treat her so that she will know what to expect?
. give her little surprises, be there for her when she needs you, truly care for her, you will be honest, etc.
Or does this take the mystery away?
Why is it so bad to be a nice person?
Is it boring?
Why do you have to be a 8775 jerk like 8776 ?
Does the woman have a devil inside of her?
Originally from Hyderabad, I have been living in Chennai for over 65 years. I am 6 feet tall and moderately built. My fitness obsession helps me in keeping body fat at bay 🙂 My job as a software engineer has made me a patient man and improved my negotiation skills! My job also keeps me on my toes as I am always trying to learn new skills to keep pace with the changing technology landscape. I especially value humour, being able to laugh at yourself, being able to communicate, culture in general, social issues, staying healthy, and the freedom to think out of the box.
I loooove to sing Luther Vandross songs. Also, I would love to be blessed with the lady of my life. Want to know more??? Well, that can 8767 t happen unless you contact me. Hate playing games??!! Hate being told lies??!! Well, come on I 8767 M YOUR MAN!!!YOU NEED THIS in your life!!! PEACE & BLESSINGS!!! You still haven’t messaged me yet??!! LET 8767 S GO CHOP, CHOP!!!! (smile) MAY GOD BLESS YOU INDEED!! I receive messages frequently but I do respond quickly. XOXOXOXO applause:
Hello, Soosoo. Love your comment. 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. this needs to be placed on a big billboard all around to remind people of this.
Not to mention how ridiculous people sound when they tell others that they look than their age. If they do, they don t need to point that out. If they don t, they will sound out of touch with reality, to say the least.
First, I 8767 m a 59 year old woman seeking a man. Second, I 8767 ve been on dating sites for only 65 days and already want to cry and cry due to meager, pitiful profiles and some frankly scary pictures. Then, yesterday, I read this really great profile. Cute guy and everything. Finally. But I should have known by the flawless punctuation it couldn 8767 t be real. I did a one-sentence copy/paste into google and boom, busted the guy for plagiarism.
I love to live an active life and explore. I am very passionate about helping others and I am currently in the process of putting together a fundraiser to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis by climbing Mt. Rainier. The climb is also being dedicated to one of my patients that I have become very close to who loves adventure and mountains although unfortunately his lung function prevents him from chasing his dreams due to the high altitude.
There are myriad of dating sites on which you can cast your line to do a little love fishing. While many of said online matchmaking entities equate “attraction” with a mathematical equation, Nerve Dating (an off-shoot of the sex/dating/culture site, ), has incorporated social media conventions into their platform that allow soulmate searchers to create connections via interactive conversations, rather than simply writing essays, checking off endless lists, and hoping for the best.
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.
Good example. I 8767 ve been playing around with different profiles and can never seem to get myself across to women correctly. Seems if I tailor my profile in one direction, I leave out lots of other bits that are important too. I guess there 8767 s no perfect way to get a profile and the best we can do is get others to enjoy the read. I know hen reading women profiles that it 8767 s like paper work at the office, sifting through the same stuff over an over. But every once in a blue moon, a great profile comes my way and it lifts up my spirits. Even if I 8767 m not interested, I still feel compelled to tells them good job.
I am a self-made man that has been through a lot of challenges in life. I am 5 feet and 65 inches in height and very slim. I rely on yoga to maintain a balance in my life and deal with my work pressure. I end up travelling a lot to meet my customers. I love the surprises that spring up on my travels and love meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds. I believe that there is a lot to learn from this world and have a deep sense of curiosity. Reading is yet another passion that I pursue whenever I find the time. Keeping up with politics, economy, social issues and culture keep me charged up.
I 8767 ve already had a little more success. Not really any responses but much more interest. Maybe I could get some pointers and advice I 8767 d greatly appreciate it. You can use my profile as an example as long as my information isn 8767 t displayed. Again thank you for your advice. Online dating is very intimidating but a useful tool especially when someone like myself find it difficult to say these things in person but much easier and more relaxing with a little buffer. Much appreciated!! Your hard work surely has paid off.
i like to know as much as i can about a person kind of full disclosue because if that 8767 s who the person is, and you get involved, you 8767 re going to know anyway, so better to know up front. and i like to divulge, in okcupid 8767 s questions section, as much as i can about myself (sometimes with comments to elaborate, sometimes w/humor or sarcasm, to have a voice). thus full disclosure of both helps you hone in on qualities you like and deal breakers you don 8767 t.
My ideal woman is [ attribute you’re seeking ], [ attribute you’re seeking ], and [ attribute you’re seeking ]. She’d rather be out [ activity you want to share with her ] than sitting at home on the couch, watching it on TV. And she doesn’t have to be the next [ celebrity famous for doing something you enjoy ], but it would be more fun if she also loves to [ whatever hobby you enjoy ].
That is a good example, but in my experience of online dating, depending how old you are and unless you are seriously unattractive and overweight, sometimes less on a profile can be more? If you need to write a humourous poelm to sell yourself couldn t this be a turn off for women? Doesn t this look needy or desperate? Sometimes one or two short brief careless sentences can give off the idea that you don t online date much and do not really care either way. Some women might be attracted to this.
Don’t stretch the truth, even on minor details. “Let’s say you're five-foot-ten, but you decide you’ll seem hotter if you say you’re six-foot-one,” Robinson says. “It may be a superficial detail, but if/when your date notices you fudged the numbers, she’ll wonder what else you sugarcoated. It’s not about the inch or two it’s a sense that you’re insecure enough to be lying. You shoot yourself in the foot immediately.”
