What is your #1 Pet Peeve in ProfilesPage 2 of 22    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)
Another pet peeve of mine is seeing people say things like... well if the person has x number of people who have them on their favorite list they are a player...

its not up to me who puts me on their favorite list... I have no control over it at all.... (just a note... I beleive i'm only on two peoples favorite lists...), so if 1000 people happen to come along and for some insane reason decide to list me in their favorites, it shouldnt reflect on me... that would be like getting pissed off at someone because people keep looking at them.... just silly.....

note... I put this in the first person even though it doesnt apply to me... I just used myself as an example....

When guys post "I'm looking for a fit attractive female" HELLO IDIOTS! this is the internet it aint that easy. If it was and I was a guy I'd just be able to walk outside and models would throw themselves at me! Plus it shows how shallow people are being so oriented on looks

I think what jenn2373 is refering to is to those who claim to be intelligent and yet they dont/cant spell right!!!
well first of all as far as I'm concerned nobody should say in their profile that they are "intelligent" about themselves, of course nobody thinks of himself or herself as non intellectual person, but when you come out in your profile that you are intelligent then the least you could do is to spell right because thats the way we communicate on here.

Zauvir: Way to go! You have beat the odds! And your mom must be an amazing person!

It takes everything you have and MORE to go through what you went through and I commend you. I'm sure they didn't mean someone like you....they mean someone who is too lazy to be bothered to cut the apron strings, mooching off a doting parent(s), and unwilling to make the effort to be independent. You have extenuating circumstances. :)

Good luck to you.

I agree with you, Schmoopie4u. Stating you want someone honest and dependable is like a restaurant advertising that they serve "good food". Well, you would hope so, wouldn't you. My own pet peeve is reading that old chestnut, "walking on the beach." I'll hike through the woods with you, I'll stroll arm in arm with you along the street where you live, but the beach? What if I don't live near a beach? And the damn sand gets in everything ... LOL

What? I'm not the only one with a profile on here?

I honestly don't like the profiles period. Either someone is so good at selling themselves that it's too good to be true, or like most of us, are pretty average at selling ourselves and like the rest really bad at it. (Thinking I fall in the last category... ah well, I like the forums).

I guess the really serious profiles peeve me. I prefer it if there's a bit of humour in them.

I think we should get rid of the self written aspect of the profiles and only have the questions and it should be mandatory that you include a picture of yourself!

profiles are kinda bogus. You can put anything there and people have no choice but to just believe it.

As far as POF's profiles, I guess the question about Drugs is lame to me. Whose going to admit to being a drug addict?

1> You block em and it was a wasted effort on their part
2> they need to get a grip on reality

So by not wanting to lie about their marital status they still screw themselves over. So the best thing (if they don't wanna say) is to simply lie and say "no" and then no one hassles at them about say "no response" because everyone will just believe what they said.

Not arguing, but I'll give the person some credit for not wanting to deny their marriage. Its also possible they are somewhere in between and didn't know the right answer? I dunno

well in that case its possible they don't have any new pics scanned or haven't gotten round to it. Doesn't mean they don't like themselves.

Ok I guess my peave is how everyone is so "black and white" about things: "old pic MUST mean low self esteem" or "prefer not to say MUST mean whatever". I don't like when people just generalize about everyone as a whole. You don't know these people or their situations. Give people the benefit of the doubt first. ASS-U-ME-ing will only make you look petty and small minded in the end especially if your wrong.

aahhh shoot. Well that makes sense then.

Well to answer that some people aren't that computer savvy

Also could be that if the people aren't interested in meeting then they really have no motivation to go out, spend money, post a pic so that total strangers online will be happy.

Not trying to insult, just trying to give ya some logical reasons. :)

I'm searching "google images" for a photo of Tom Cruise to put in my profile as we speak......lol

Seriously, I just joined so I'm getting in on the tail end of this thread. Some people have reasons to not put their photo in their profile.....I didn't myself but I did show some coutesy and explained why not.

Hopefully my brilliant typing skills will more than compensate anyhow.....lol

cheers

This isn't more of a profile pet peeve, its more of an in-general-pof peeve thing that people do.

It's to type.....




































like this. Whats up with that?

when someone makes unfounded assumptions as to why someone put certain answers in their profiles or why they are chatting on these forums. They don't know the people after all.
