    I haven't completed my RJ profile yet......maybe I should learn from this funny and scarily true article and tell the absolute truth...and start by saying that I have never set foot inside a gym and that walking and the occasional swim is more my speed icon_smile.gif

    That's why I just paste my posts into my profile to let readers draw their own conclusions. If I had to describe myself who knows how badly I'd come off?

    Most profiles suck. If you start with "I'm not good at describing myself" or "I never know what to write in these things," you're already a lost cause in cyberspace.

    Aristoshark saidI think my profile is pretty honest. And it doesn't include any of that crap.
    And when you look like MCB, who cares what your profile says?

    Funny, because I think you have the most well written profile on RJ. And I usually don't like profiles that are longer than one or two paragraphs.

    Edit: I see you've shortened it!

    Also, the word "average" should be eliminated from almost all profiles. It's such an overused and dull self-descriptor. I'm sure you've got some distinguishing qualities that make you somewhat unique. List those instead of declaring your averageness!

    I also don't see it as all that ordinary. Most of the time, profile text doesn't get read, it's all about the picture. If a guy messages you and strikes up a conversation, often times he'll ask questions that are answered in your profile.

    I think we've covered this in threads in the past. Here are some things that you'll find in 90% of profiles..

    - Laid back
    - Down to earth
    - Chill
    - Masculine
    - Not into the scene
    - Shy at first then you can't shut me up
    - Just say Hi, I love receiving messages
    - Not looking for hook-ups, but I'm a [position] in case you want to know
    - No one over/under [age]
    - Looking to meet other attractive guys
    - I love all kinds of music, except rap and country
    - I'll fill this in later
    - I'm an open book, ask me anything

    One that always makes me laugh is "willing to lie about how we met". Why is meeting online considered bad? And what is the cover story to use instead?

    From the OP's example:

    "Also my favorite number is 16 and I don't like sprinkles on my ice cream--EVER!!"

    I've actually seen quite a variety of profiles... some detailed, some pretty sparse. Haven't thought much about what the OP indicated here, but I do like the creative ones!

    Every time I see a profile like that, I roll my eyes and move on quickly!

    It's very generic and not interesting. icon_wink.gif

    IDK...It feels like an interview with a Miss America contestant...
    " I believe in America and I love puppies and Apple pie, and a beautiful sunset. I want to cure diseases and death, stop war and clean up crime and pollution and end world hunger!.....blah, blah, blah....that's nice. You are SO pretty, Don't hurt yourself thinking and talking, so just take that off and put this in your mouth and suck. We'll get some pictures and let you know where you placed!...NEXT!"

    It's pretty funny, more typical for profiles found on pure dating sites not necessarily RJ. But there are similar ones here

    icon_lol.gif Guidelines:
    1. Make yourself seem fresh and new
    2. Flatter the existing members
    3. Put a list of adjectives describing you
    4. Make sure to make yourself sound as desperately masculine as possible
    5. Overuse exclamation marks
    6. Try not to seem vain, while still hoping to meet the most gorgeous man ever

    Did I miss anything?

    That moment when I visit a hot guys profile that I'm about to message and then i see his first word in the description is "masc" or straight acting ..... It quickly disintegrates any attraction i might have had for you. People that are obsessed with talking about there masculinity strike me as insecure, If your really masculine then i shouldn't have to hear about it every 5 seconds, If you really masculine you shouldn't have to tell me, i should just know...

    I disagree with 1) We are always reinventing ourselves. I guarantee you are not the same person you were 3 months ago.
    and 2) There is nothing wrong with flattery, if it's sincere. Pandering is another matter.

    5) Agree, as I read somewhere: "I've become IMMUNE to Exclamation POINTS!!!!!!!" And what's the last time you literally ROTFL!!!?
