In this world of advanced technology, where you can pretty much get anything you want in a split second, long is antiquated.
I think people with LONGGGGGGG profiles risk looking a lot of views. Whether that's a good thing or not remains to be seen.
I definitely see both good and bad points here. I think it would filter out the people who aren't really interested in getting to know me, those just looking for a hookup. It also makes it easy to tell if someone has contacted me without actually reading my profile, so it makes it easier to avoid scammers. But by the same token, it might eliminate someone who would find me interesting but is in too much of a rush, or too lazy, to scroll through it.
Mine is categorized, so it should be an easy read. It's not even necessary to read through it all, just scan through quickly and find the bits that are relevant.
I'm with the majority. I like a profile that is entertaining and keeps my attention. If I look at a profile and have to scroll, and scroll, and SCROLL down to the end, I don't even bother with it. There's got to be some mystery (not axe murderer/sex offender mystery)
Don't think mine's all that entertaining--I originally had it all in paragraphs, but I had to condense it into mostly point form because it was too long (it kept getting cut off at the bottom). But it just gives a few major points about my interests and stuff, the stuff that matters to me in a relationship, or that I think is important for my partner to know, that will help people know whether there's any chance of it working between us (if she's a rabid hockey/football/baseball/UFC/wrestling fan, for example, it ain't gonna work). There's far more to me than what my profile says, so there's plenty of mystery left (but no axe murderer mystery, I can assure you).
I think my profile is an appropriate length, but then, I don't know if anyone has even read it so who knows if my way is right either? :)
I'd call yours pretty short--yet it still gives a decent amount of detail. I gave more detail in mine, because common interests and values are important to me in a relationship.
