Are you KIDDING me?

If your answer is “Yes” to one or more of the questions below, your profile may be working against you.

  • Do you reference your past relationships or marriage? Example: “My wife/husband was an alcoholic”; “My partner cheated on me”; I miss my ex but I think I should start dating anyway”
  • Do you begin any sentence with “I hate”; “You must not”; “I won’t tolerate”?    (It’s OK to state what you want or don’t want in your ideal mate. It’s not OK to use demanding or harsh language.)
  • Does your profile contain sexual innuendos?
  • Are you whining? Example: “I’m so lonely”; “I’ve had my heart broken” or “life’s so hard”.
  • Did you post your profile without checking spelling and grammar?
  • Do you describe yourself with a long string of adjectives? Example: “I’m funny, warm, spontaneous, kind, easy on the eyes, smart and honest”
  • Do you repeat what you’ve already addressed in other sections of your profile? Example: “I like bowling, biking, and the beach”; those should be listed under “hobbies” or “activities”.  I’m 5’6”, average weight with dark hair and blue eyes; you should have a recent picture to serve this purpose.
  • Do you use the phrase “No baggage”?
  • Does your profile read “my friends say I’m good looking” or “I’m told I’m fun to be with”?
  • Is your profile less than 100 words?
  • Is your Profile more than 500 words?
