I hope you'll find this entertaining, folks! After having read a few hundred profiles, I've come up with a collection of used, abused and recycled cliches that leave no room for any original thought... Though the compilation of "classic" pearls is based on "male" profiles, sure it can be unisex... feel free to share your favorites ;o) OK, in no particular order: - I like to have fun (now you are truly different from the rest of us, old grumps) - I work hard, play hard(er) (sleep deeper? chew more thoroughly?) - I am not comfortable talking about myself here (that's a killer introduction, you had me at "Hello"!) - I am just an average Joe looking for a good woman (would Angelina Jolie be ok for you?) - I love to travel (but I have not renewed my passport in like 10 years) - I like to spend time both indoors and outdoors (like cleaning the house and being stuck in traffic jam?) - I love long walks on the beach as well as snuggling in front of the fireplace (does the second part apply to Florida/Texas/CA residents especially during summer months?) - Intimacy/sex is important to me (really??? man, and I thought it was some urban legend...) - I have a great sense of humor (why was I yawning through the whole profile then??...) - I will know her when I see her (meaning I possess better than 20/20 vision and can see through people, time and space) - I am tired of the bar scene (well, nobody ever tied you down to the bar stool) - She should be comfortable both in jeans and an evening gown (what about in business suit? PJs?) - She should be beautiful on the outside as well as inside (usually accompanied by "in my eyes" remark) - I work (an answer regarding one's job title) - I love sports and I work out often (game of chess anyone? c'mon, we can do it 5 times a week!) - I will treat her like a Princess (well, if I want to be treated "differently", I should join S&MRUs site then, right?) ...

pulled up a few from the bottom of the blog: I see my glass as half-full, not half-empty ------- I say, are you going to finish it? - Do nice guys always finish last? ------- He, who hesitates, is probably right - I value quality over quantity ------- Yes, in theory everything works! - I am very laid-back ------- time flies when you don't know what you're doing! - Religion is important to me ------ In God we trust, all others must pay cash! - I am 50 years old but I feel like 40 ---- it takes about 10 years to get used to how old you really are - I love to ride my Harley/ my convertible with the top down ----- look at the picture and you'll see that majority of those who claimed it are either bald or balding... just an observation ;o) - Looking for Ms.Right, not RightNow ..... - There's got to be (great) chemistry (yes, just add some C2H5OH and the love fluids will start flowing... Anybody ever asked for some Biology on top of Trigonometry? Or let's find passion in Geography!) - I've been told that I am....(meaning I slipped each and every friend of mine 5 bucks...) - Not into (head) games (but would gladly agree to play a round of strip poker with you) - I am very active and want someone who can keep up with me (like rollerblading around the house while doing laundry? or a quick climb on Mt.Everest before dinner to work up an appetite?) - No drama/no baggage (Noooo, drama only happens in Hollywood) - Willing to try anything (at least) once (bungee jumping or skydiving on the first date anyone?) - Friends first (as long as friendship involves nookie?)

Leon, just the cucumber? it's formaldehyde! and Chlorine had her Botox injection that went straight through her brain and she left the bulding... Imagol4, if you need a pair of shoes to go with your tux, remember you can get shoes for a couple of bucks at the bowling alleys. Queen, will you share Richard with me if I ask politely? kann12, this jokes and advices are free- enjoy! Steel, yeah, the baggage...The funniest part is the people who claim their match shoudn't have any baggage, usually (themselves) have more issues than National Geographic! One brand spanking new backpack will be coming your way on your Bday!

I needed a good giggle. Thanks Peri! Writing an original profile is hard. Oh, in case you are the last to know. Geniek has dibs on Elvis. Richard is here with me....

Peri, One of my faves..."No baggage" Does that include carry-ons? Baggage? All mine is gone since my children took all of it when they went to college..even my backpack!

Juno, my condolences... :o) lol now you see what I was talking about earlier. Don't worry! With your looks and smarts you'll have Princes lining up for you in no time! Healey, would you please be in charge of keeping those Princes "in line" for Miss Juno??? I promise, beer (solely for you) will be flowing any time of the day! RunForrestRun, How would I put it nicely? Young generation still chooses Pepsi....

NiceGirl and RunForrest, Let me give you a "combined" answer... Men and women can look hot at any age (Hey, Richard Gere is still hot in my books)... Toning down your self-love to just "good looking" option is pretty acceptable though lol... You may be HOT at 20, 30, 40, 56 or 60, but for god's sake don't lie about your age!!! You'll get busted rather sooner than later...Only Dick Clark can pull it off and get away with it painlessly! And NONE of men here is "Dick Clark" material, let's be realistic! RunForrestRun, I don't mean to raise dust once more, but there was/is a 50 something member on here who got grilled for chaising "barely legal" skirts on MM and elsewhere... Good luck to you though! You'll need it!

I had fun reading all the posts... and chuckled in the fact that I hadn't used any of them... for a man, I must be doing something wrong... grin. I do believe the majority of people on the web dating services do practice cut and paste a lot... grin. Its amazing how large the Oxford dictionary is and how little of it we all use... Thanks for starting this blog... reinforces my opinions about creativity.

2 cliches I find are overdone are: "I love to live life to the fullest." and "I'm the kind of person who sees the glass half full..." And on some of the other dating sites, I've seen photo after photo of men dressed in their grubs, holding up a big freakin' fish! What does that say to a woman? FISHING WIDOW! You'll never see him. He'll either be out on the lake or off the coast or crouched in a stupid cardboard box on an ice covered river in sub-zero temperatures. And usually, if they fish ... they like to hunt to. I will NEVER eat venison with the hair attached again!!!

How come nobody came up with the idea of starting a blog and only putting there the following: "I will fill this out later"?

I get a kick out of profiles that say, "Must look good in jeans and a T and a ball gown." Who goes to Balls anymore? Also, there are a huge percentage of men who say they work out at the gym 3 to 5 times a week! And run! And eat healthy! When you get to 40+ I think the definition of "working out" changes in speed, agility, pedometer readings and blood pressure monitoring! Feel the burn? LOL

Here is a few more cliches I missed the first time and those are also good! - I see my glass as half-full, not half-empty ------- I say, are you going to finish it? - Do nice guys always finish last? ------- He, who hesitates, is probably right - I value quality over quantity ------- Yes, in theory everything works! - I am very laid-back ------- time flies when you don't know what you're doing! - Religion is important to me ------ In God we trust, all others must pay cash! - I am 50 years old but I feel like 40 ---- it takes about 10 years to get used to how old you really are - I love to ride my Harley/ my convertible with the top down ----- look at the picture and you'll see that majority of those who claimed it are either bald or balding... just an observation ;o) - Looking for Ms.Right, not RightNow ........ to be continued....

Blanca, no, you definitely don't need an "extra" leg, LOL So maybe you want to suggest to you date that taking "Centrum" Vitamins daily might be beneficial for one's physical and mental state and then RUN, RUN and RUN away... and find another one! Look, statistically speaking, the odds are in your favor and OVERWHELMINGLY. Let's do some math here: there are about 6.5 billion folks on this planet. Let's assume that (roughly) half of them are males, about a quarter of those are more or less age-appropriate for you and roughly a half of those would be single! Are you still following me? We are talking here a whooping 400,000,000 of unattached males and this would be MORE than population of the US and Canada COMBINED!!! Ok, ok, maybe I am being overly optimistic about the numbers here, but hey... you never know! My best, Perihelion
