5. The “Laundry-List” of Interests

My interests are: Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Gaming, Hiking, Rock-Climbing computers, hanging out with friends, eating pizza, Netflix…

Have you ever seen this?  I typically avoid this part altogether.  This is debatable but usually it adds little to know value.  Why? what you like is not who you are.  Most people like Game of Thrones but if I were to message you with, “So, you like Game of Thrones…” it really isn’t a great conversation starter now is it?

4. The “Must haves list”

Most people like to put a laundry list of things that their ideal partner must or must not have.  Don’t do this.  This can be very intimidating and of putting.  It’s not as if this will weed out the bad ones but more likely, it will make people think you are arrogant.

 

3. Saying, “I’m a fun-loving person, I’m smart, I’m funny” etc…

Simply saying that you are funny or smart tells me nothing about who you are.  Why not demonstrate it by telling a joke in your profile? Or how about show what you are interests are?  You can say these things with out saying them.  My personal pet peeve is when someone says they are a “fun-loving” person.  Newsflash – most people love to have fun.

 

2. The Rant Why I Can’t Get a Date…

About Myself: EVERYONE HERE IS SOOOO SHALLOW.  They think I am either to short or not funny enough.  I am SICK of hearing that we have no “chemistry”.

100 message and 0 responses later, eventually some people decide that they just have had enough.  If your chances for getting a date were low, now they are zero.  As much as possible, try to stay positive.  It’s frustrating, I get it but don’t let that show on your profile.

 

1. Posing with Weapons

This one really only applies to men on this one.  You may think you look badass with your gun or sword but this tells people, “Hey, I’m probably the next Ted Bundy”.  This is a deal breaker. For the love of God, don’t do this…
