I have noticed the following dating profile about a month ago, and I decided to post it here with very minor changes, as I consider this the most interesting and overall – the best female online dating profile I have seen so far, or at least one of the very best. Some would consider this profile to be too negative and opinionated, but I strongly believe that “playing it safe” is not the right way to go when it comes to online dating. You are much better off speaking your mind, as that will significantly increase your chances of finding a reader who will relate and agree with what you say. So, here is the profile that I simply had to post here. Obviously, I don’t know much about the writer, but clearly she is not your average girl. She is articulate, funny, and opinionated at the very least.
I have always winced at the thought of online dating… but in the name of open-mindedness, f*** it. After being thoroughly disappointed in the trashy local nightlife, I have come to the conclusion that meeting people here might not be the worst idea. So, here goes…
Despite being very busy (aren’t we all?), I make it a point to find the time for doing the things I like and spending the time with people who I care about, and I absolutely refuse to become a salve of my work or other obligations. I like people who have brains, humor and wit, spunk, self-confidence (not narcissism), resilience, strength of character, a willingness to learn and be taught (humility), those who have been through some sh-t in life and pushed through it (I am not going to make your lemonade for you). If what you think and talk about goes deep beneath the surface, it won’t go unnoticed by me.
I think video games are retarded – I want my future kids to be cut up and bruised from climbing trees and riding bikes, not fat-assed in front of the TV being conditioned for army drone piloting. That goes for my partner as well.
No small penises (seriously), douchey facial hair styles (i.e. the Berkeley Beard, anal-retentive chinstrap or Flavr Savr), high maintenance egos, military men/law enforcement, and guys who spend more than an hour a day at a gym.
I can say what my first date nightmares are:
1) Fancy restaurant “wining & dining” – schmoozing is laughable
2) Bar or nightclub yelling in each other’s ear.
I am interning at the local Zoo. If I like you, I might let you feed the tigers with me ;).”
The above writing style is not for everyone, and you might consider it to be too harsh and not reflecting of who you are. Obviously, there are many ways to write a great dating profile, and the above was just one of the. But, even a short paragraph alone can communicate that a woman is much smarter and more interesting than most. Here is an actual example from a profile:
“I disapprove of joining cults and cover bands. I approve of paid time off and karaoke. I discourage overindulgence and under-stimulation. I encourage playing with children and learning a second language. I dislike meddlers and pedophiles. I like photographs and fist fights. I am uninterested in vapid minds and perverts. I am interested in smart asses and challenging repartee. Now what?”
The main principle that the above two types of writing have is that they unique, bold and different, and that’s how your dating profile should be.
