I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why: I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.
“I have been in the ——- area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people. I enjoy meeting new people and going to new places.
Remember, quality single guys that you are looking to meet are more picky than others.
Many of them are looking for a special connection with a special woman.
Tired of meeting BOYS who tell me what I want to hear, make and break promises, and aren’t ready for something serious.
(This woman is voicing her opinion and shows her personality early on. )) You: Honest, mature, gentleman, emotionally, mentally, financially secure (“financially secure” is a bad move in a dating profile because it’s an immediate red flag to a guy that he might be dealing with a materialistic woman.) Knows how to treat a lady, ready for a long term relationship (this would sound a bit too eager or even desperate to most guys. I live on the East Coast and travel to West every week for work. (This would make the reader believe that she is not looking for anyone special, but just someone to kill time with and subdue her loneliness).
I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types.
(This first sentence says nothing eye-catching about the woman and is very bland, and boring). (still, nothing thought provoking or attractive) I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. (Finally something somewhat interesting that she says about herself).
(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. I made myself a promise a few years ago to take a vacation somewhere new, out of state, every year. Well, that is a little about me if you are interested say hello and we will chat. ” *********************** This profile gets a higher grade because it reflects on the writer’s character and her personality.
It is free of fluff and very compelling for a guy who can appreciate this type of no-nonsense attitude in a person: “I don’t like most guys, but… Timeless books and movies that make you wonder for days about whose side you are on put great flavor into many of my evenings. What are you greatest pet-peeves and what makes you weak in your knees from joy and happiness.” Profile #4: Grade A This last profile below gets the highest great for both the content and the creativity. What I particularly like about this profile is that it shows that a woman hasn’t lost faith in true love and romance but at the same time she is also realistic.
I am not interested in most guys and besides perhaps that what makes those few unique individuals that I do connect with all more special. The ending of it might sound a bit on a more desperate side, but all in all – maybe it’s not such a terrible thing to sound a bit desperate for love and connection if that’s how you really feel.
