Profile Criteria - Yours & Theirs

Do you adhere to the criteria stated in your own profile? I say I don't respond to those without photos, and every time I break this rule, it seems to backfire. Don't know if they don't read my profile or whether they figure they'll give it a try, but it sure eliminates rejection after a photo has been provided and there's no attraction.

If a man's profile states a certain age, body type, etc. I now pay attention & eliminate myself if I don't match his criteria. Saves a lot of time and frustration.

I've also gotten to a point where I don't even consider a member who is not preferred. I feel if you're truly interested, you'll somehow find the $20.00 per month.

Spelling is a pet peeve of mine & if they can't be bothered to make sure their profile is spelled correctly, to me it's an indication of how serious they are & how intelligent they are too.

Would like to hear your thoughts & opinions.

I want to know if someone is brave enough to go were love dares go....and that is way beyond photos ...for me it's personality first and whether or not I'm feeling that magic. He doesnt have to be a brad pitt look alike.

would you love me
with my booties on,
curlers in my hair?
Flannel jammies buttoned to the top,
Waist high underwear...

I know he will

I'm not looking for Brad Pitt, but I'm not looking for QuasiMoto either. I would love to fall in love with someone I can actually look at while we're making love.....or someone that I can actually see myself kissing. There has to be some connection and not just on the "looks" level, but the whole package! He doesn't have to be a muscleman, but I'm not attracted to overweight either. It's just a combination of elements, ya know????????

Perhaps if you had reacted that way he might have caught a clue! But then again, perhaps not... ROFL

Ready a great topic and discussion here. Rob mention being "picky" I think at this point most of us are relatively/very picky and i wonder why. We have all learned with this internet dating what to look for because of so much duplicity. Ready on the pics i agree 100%. No pic no respnse. Now occasionally curiosity will get the best of me and i'll ask him to send one. You know what on several occasions they don't. Ahhhh the tell tale sign. If they wait to send one and i don't like it i simply will say sorry i don't see it... Sure it hurts their feelings and i really hate to do it but they are putting themselves in that spot. We are not. Etiquette is something i wished everyone learned in school. If they are not going to put a pic up then when they write send one with his email. That would be the ideal situation. One of my favorites is IM's or email several back to back and then the question. What are you wearing... OMG i have a field day on those. It usually will be something like i have my donald duck boxers on with my tweety bird slippers and my minnie mouse tee shirt. A more unflattering description i can't think of. I always get a laugh out of it. Eventually they go away.
But i am in agreement with all. Send the neccessay things to get started and go from there.....

Tomi i nearly feel off the chair with your descriptions(2 inches, pot belly and toupe) now did you smother a laugh or did you present the lady that you are with proper etiquette and run don't walk before you busted our with song...?

WOW!!!! After having read all these posts about 1. Men don't read profiles 2. Men only scan for the word sex somewheres near the top of a ladies profile and if they don't find it they move on...and 3. Men are only looking for sex...

All I got to say, is I've always knew I was a little weird...ok make that medium...er...OK LOTS...but this now takes da' cakes...

I actually have FUNNNNN reading the ladies profiles. Some really try to describe who they are, others spew cliches about love, or offer their views on the subject, which is fine!

BUT to know that I, da' FOX, is the only menzs on planet earth in a personals website with a full paid-type membership who (LAWD FORBIDS) actually READS wiimenzs profiles without looking for the "sex word" is a strike to the heart of my weirdness.

As far as looking for sex, I guess I'm doin' that too, but it never enters my pea-sized 3 cell brain that just gettin' contacted by a lady means I'm gonna get it! AND I certainly deserve it! In fact, it's been soooo long since when that if SEX were OIL I'd be about a QUART LOW!

BEAM ME UP SCOTTIES, you've beamed me down to somebody elses planet!!!

Scuze me ladies and gents...I gotta go read me some more profiles for entertainment till Scotties activates the transport switch...!
C' Ya!

Hi CutiePie!

No, I didn't know any of them, but do read the Mississauga News which is a local newspaper. Have you ever been to Mississauga, which is a suburb of Toronto? I've been to Florida a number of times, Fort Myers, Orlando, Florida Keys, but never Sebring. How did you know these guys?

It was around 20 years ago, the whole group of them came down every year to golf for 2 weeks at the country club i worked at. They were a fun group of guys. Ive never been there but I was born in niagara falls, ny and we used to go across the border once in awhile. dont really remember much of it, i was very young.

with regards to photo's, better to put it up like it is. get rid of the glamour shots that hide the real you unless you have other shots of the real you. I go on date after date, the photo's are usually way better than what is real... I can tell you the three best looking dates I have been on, didn't have photo's...and these girls were ALL real head turners. There is a girl on MM here who has absolutely gorgeous photo's who has been hitting on me, but she is 35 and her photo's are clearly from 10 years earlier. If she thinks I'm going to fly her out to see me without a current photo, NOT A CHANCE. Another girl on here, 40, had great photo's of her face and when I met her tried to focus all attention on her face. She had a pretty face, but she was huge. I don't know how you put it to someone...but there is no way a fat woman is going to fit into my lifestyle or the crowd I run with. So when you deceive someone about your appearance, you are mostly going to be hurting yourself if you become attracted to the other person. Better off to join weight watchers, start exercising, get to the beauty salon and get a life first...and don't get discouraged, be persistent. Every woman is beautiful, they just have to work at it. Just like a rich man's wealth didn't come by laying around deceiving people. And I don't want yesterday's beauty queen telling me how great she used to look...just like you don't want yesterdays millionaire telling you how great he was making his millions while he is now a retired lard ass. I will never retire. And the woman I fall in love with, will never stop being beautiful.

Also it's better to show up in person looking better than the photo's so that expectations are exceeded. I went out on a date recently with a woman who sent me all her glamour shots from 5 years ago and she kept telling me how beautiful she was. My expectations were set to meet J Lo. I was totally disappointed, she didn't look as good as the "worst" picture she had sent me. Also, head shots and no body shots generally mean BIG and/or no self confidence.

Ready! not to change the subject but I noticed that you are from mississauga. It brought back old memories. I used to have some friends that came down every year from there. A group of golf guys. One was the editor of the Mississauga news, Frank Baliva (nickname: F'd up Frank)who trajically died on the lake. And the other was the sports editor Fred Dorrington (nickname: horny Fred). Then we also had Ill Bill. (cause he always had a hangover), Mork from Ork (cause he looked like him)and my memory is lapsing after all these years but there were more. Sadly after Frank died, it was never the same and the group broke up. Did you or do you know any of them?

Why not put your best foot forward? I feel we're all on here for one reason or another, it's marketing or advertising yourself in hopes of connecting with someone.

The photos leave a lot to be desired in many cases, those with sunglasses don't let you see what their face looks like, the phone snaps always look bad because of the flash or angle, and it's always better to have more than one shot.

The profile titles are often mispelled & yet it's your first impression. If you get past the photo & title, and into the person's profile & they've got poor language or spelling it's a big turnoff for me. There's no excuse for it now that there's spellcheck!

Take a little time putting your profile together, give a little detail as to your likes & dislikes, hobbies, etc. to interest a potential partner. If it's not worth your effort, why would someone else be interested?


LIE folks Lie. I was honest in my profile and now everyone hates me. Even my deceased mother gets hate mail about me.

lol

I think many of the people who lie on their profile would be totally surprised to see how widely they would be accepted if they just told the truth. What they may find as an imperfection may be what turns someone else on. They will never have the opportunity to know if they will be accepted for who they really are. Its a sad thing

All bald men please, flaunt that beautiful bald head! Its so much sexier. I personally think totally bald is very sexy. The vanity tends to ruin the whole package. I have seen many men that did the side swoop thing that looks ridiculous or the toupee. Someone finally convinced them to flaunt it and oh my, what a difference. At first its kinda different to see after they've covered it up and looked foolish for years. Once everyone gets used to it, its normal and its sexy. Shave it all off! Tyra has a segment called "fix it or flaunt it", I say please flaunt it!!!
