    I think alot of guys are not attracting what there looking for when there profile comes across as very demanding, cookie cutter, or alot of bragging.

    I came across this one recently. A very demanding profile

    TURN OFFS:

    Over 25
    Bitchy
    Prideful
    Judgmental
    Revengeful
    Vain
    Socialite
    Drunk
    Femmy
    Drugs
    Drag
    Weird Sex
    Unemployed (unless you have a good reason)


    TURN ONS:

    Under 25
    Physically Fit
    Sexually Versatile
    ESFP or ESTP (If you don't know what that means, look it up)


    I'm like omg your scaring people off with this profile. He turned out to be a really cool guy but this profile needs alot of work.


    What type of profiles rub you the wrong way?

    I'm just going to copy/paste my reply from a similar thread..

    ===

    Examples of ick I've seen here and other sites..

    - Guys looking for other guys with a specific list of traits. Followed by, "Please don't contact me if you don't fit this criteria".

    - Guys that state they won't respond to headless profiles, yet all their public photos are headless.

    - Numerous pics of themselves shit faced at circuit parties.

    - The MySpace pose.

    - Baseball cap tilted to the side or crooked. Double ick if the guy is over 25.

    - All professional photos and no candid ones.

    - "No [insert race/ethnicity or body type here]". Followed by, "No offense".

    - Music or video embedded in the profile and set to Autoplay.

    - "Unpretentious" and "down to earth" guys that don't respond with a simple 'thanks' when you give them a compliment.

    - Older guys that have "boy" or "boi" in their profile name.

    - Blank profiles. Or blank profiles that state "ask me if you want to know more".

    - Guys that are on the down-low.. Supposedly straight guy, married to a woman, and secretly fucking guys on weekends.

    If I hear bad music playing when I'm barely loading the page, I'm gone.

    xrichx said..."No offense"...
    Hear, hear...one of the first things I'll do is take offense when I see a profile with this mollification BS.

    Also, I'll say it. Shitty grammar and spelling. I'll forgive sloppy prose in a chat or forum thread, but in a profile page? With posted pictures, music player, videos, preparation time...? Hell, I knew what a dictionary was in second grade. No offense.

    Exception: English is not your first language.

    Very educated guys who can't seem to figure out the difference between

    Your and you're
    discreet and discrete

    Use of the word DOMINATE.

    My gawwwwwwwwdd if I see this verb being used as an adjective one more time I'm going to gnaw off my arms.


    Pics that are obviously professionally taken. Coz you know when you meet in person that the person will not look anything like the pic. Will be an inevitable let down

    those that list rules and regulations and pontificate how "hot, stud-like, or muscled" they are.

    I'll pass on even checking out a profile of Mr. "HotStud" or Mr. "MuscledJock", or 'insert city-Stud"

    it's one thing to be confident and another to think your $%^& don't stink.

    I'm trying to picture how to use dominate as an adjective. Oh, I get it: they mean dominant.

    In addition to what most have already stated:

    nonpretentious - because you just know someone called them that at some point otherwise they wouldn't have listed it.

    no fats / fems - no clear definition on what they view as fat or fem. 5 pounds? 10 pounds? On a scale of Dr. Zackery Smith to Liberace just how fem/butch are you? (hey! new forum topic!)

    alpha male - why bother. It only looks good in print.

    butch / masculine - if you have to tell someone you are you probably aren't.

    strung together letters that I would have to look up to figure it out - GWSSMDDFHQIFLEMS or B3 c-v d-v e+ f- g++ k m q r s+ t w++

    Actually any word that 'non' is attached to in the profile. Like nonjudgmental. Again. If it has to be said then the guy was probably called it at some point.

    This is a good point.

    This doesn't turn me off, but I find it very plain/dull:

    "I'm just a guy who knows how to have fun" or one of its variants (like, "Just a guy here").

    You've never given yourself a more interesting thought than that?

    Ones that point out that they are "laid back" or "chilled" ...as if they have no drama in their lives. To me, it is awfully trite and comes across as arrogant.

    And maybe it is my age, but I dont go for any profile that has bunch of pictures of the guy posing making those hand signs.

    I usually see the following:

    I'm dominate

    I'm a dominate guy

    Dominate here

    Looking for a dominate guy

    I hate profiles that have: one headless torso pic, foreign music on auto play, a long list of things the person likes, unrealistic "what they are looking for", strict instructions on c2c and incoherent headlines.

    Short profiles indicate someone's not really gonna put effort into the site or any interactions we might have. Looooooooong-ass profiles say they're trying too hard.

    This old can of worms.

    My pennysworth: guys who quote songs in their profiles, guys who write things like "treat every moment like it's your last", guys doing that weird thing with their fingers in their pictures, guys who have "no offence", guys who can't spell or punctuate, guys who write "drug and disease free you be too" like people go out of their way to be diseased or drug addicts!

    And finally, men who lick their biceps!
    Stop it. It's not sexy. You just look stooopid.

    Gawd, I just hate everybody*. Just typing this makes me angry.




    *not really.

    Mr. Z.. good to have you back among us.....!


    Turn offs: People who use age in any way as a means to eliminate or include profiles.

    Negatives to justify.. "You must be this or that". Negativity of any kind

    Lazyness

    Rigidness or inflexibility


    Turn Ons: Friendly, open, unbiased, welcoming.

    Diligent

    Educated

    Grounded

    Imaginative & Sharing...

    Now it would be interesting to see how much of the stuff we claim to hate actually in our very own profiles icon_biggrin.gif
