Phrases that should be outlawed from men's online dating profiles

I just rejoined jdate. Online dating is a good way to meet people, but you really can tell a lot about someone by what they write about themselves and sometimes it's not so good. I'm sure women say annoyingly banal things too, but I don't read their profiles. Here are some men's profile phrases that instantly make me (and other women I've polled) cease to see you as an interesting person.

"I work hard and play hard" - Sometimes, even I am rendered speechless

"I love to laugh" - you're the one! Everyone I know would much rather have daily root canals than laugh.

"I only get along with women who are size 4 or smaller" - so, when your waif is pregnant with your child, you've given her advance warning that you won't get along with her. Way to go!

"I love to have fun" - Fun is subjective. Jeffery Dahmer thought murder and cannibalism were super fun pasttimes.

"I'm looking for a woman who can go from jeans to a ballgown" - Dear Men ... all women can do this. It's called changing clothes. I hope that you're aiming higher than a woman who can dress herself.

  1. Frannie - you are wonderful and hilarious. I'm lucky to be your friend. And some man will figure himself out and be lucky to love you!
