What is your #1 Pet Peeve in ProfilesPage 6 of 22    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)
Hi everyone!

I'm new here, just been on for less then a week. I've created a profile, listed things I really shouldn't of, but figured.. honesty works best.
Anyway enough with that.

I am sorry that I haven't gone though the hundreds of pet peeves people have posted, but I do have a few of my own.

The ABSOLUTE worst one is one that claim that they are open minded, outgoing and like to try new things. Yet when you message them with something that you genuinely want to talk to them about, they completely ignore you.

POF is a great site. I am passionate about it and can't wait to get to you all! :)

Happy Fishing!

Want more about me? check out my profile :) http://www.plentyoffish.com/member18653062.htm

Smokes occassionly. . . . What is that ?? I was told by a very nice lady that she can put that on her profile because she smokes less than a pack a day !!

I was thinking it was more when they are out with friends. . . you know once in a while. I used to smoke a couple packs a day so I was a smoker. . . addicted and by my way of thinking you can smoke a lot less than a pack a day and be addicted .

I don't like "no head games" either. I also don't like "lol." I find it funny when guys put pictures of their cars, boats and motorcycles on, (but I also understand that there are lots of women who may like that). I don't get mad about this stuff. Sometimes, I want to do a silly profile where I say I am into head games and drama. I would post pictures of myself standing by my old, used dirty car in front of my tiny little house. Maybe wearing a dirty bathrobe and gumboots... Sorry, it's late and I'm getting silly.

^ Could be a pic that is a year or two old, of an ex-smoker :)

Pet peeves...where to start?

"NO HEAD GAMES"

Come on, you're playing them just by saying it.

"Hey look at my tits" pictures. Zoom in, get them out of the pic, show me your eyes. I can look at your breasts some other time if it ever gets to that stage.

Skimpy-short profiles that include a complaint about how hard it is to get to know someone :)

and prejudice.

Against a person's age, gender, race, place of residence, or pretty much anything else.

This I was just reminded of because I tried to message a woman to ask her where she found a tattoo, because I think it is awesome and would like to get one like it someday. The funny part is she is not 'searching', has found someone, and I had no intention of asking her for more than the name, address and/or phone number of her tattoo artist :)

On this site, there are only a few for me.

People who can't spell gooder :) For instance, they will right “alot” instead “a lot”. Women (from my observation) who will wait constantly for him to make the move to go out or, talk on the phone or, anything since she can't make it herself but she can whine and b*tch about it.

I think a pet peeve for me is men who have their headline as "just looking" like we're a bunch of automobiles or something!

Nothing says "Goldbricker" like the ladies with a first date idea of "An expensive Restaurant with a Good Wine List".

I too am not a huge fan of multiple grammatical errors. Everyone makes mistakes, but when it looks like they've posted their profile by cutting and pasting from their cell phone texts it can be difficult to read.

Another one for me is girls who have at least one photo of them giving the camera the finger......srsly? Are you that much of a douchebaguette?

Never hearing from someone unless you chase after them by calling them or, sending them a message etc... They never seem to initiate contact, To me that is my #1 pet peeve.

Oops...no offence about the separated comment I hope, Armster 2010?? This guy bugged me because he was over the top with what he was looking for.


None taken. Understand completely.

ok so what's with those people who put you on their favourites list but have a limit of X amount of distance otherwise not allowed to contact them?

Do these people get off on teasing or are they just completely oblivious to what they are doing?

That people new to site do not know that if they contact someone who posts to them says intimate encounter you cannot contact so many others after that.Alos people who block things like friends or activity partners some one who plays instrument might want you to jam or someone who wants friends might just want to say something nice about your profile. You don't have to want to date or be in long term with each person to chat with

I agree with this one, or shirtless taking their pictures with their cell phones or digital cameras.

Or posing in the nude.

Or posting fake pictures of other people's profiles, and taking all their info to yours.
Even if these people suffer from multiple personality disorders, still does not mean they should change their pictures every day to something completely different.

People whom you tell them you're not interested, because of their message to you was crude and graphical that they still persist not getting the *hint*.

There are several others that comes to mind, but these are strong ones that just irks me.

The lack of replies, conversation! geeezz we are on here to meet people....if you never reply or reply with 2 words how the hell are you going to get to know a person!

you know I come across many profiles that say this or a variaton of:

'if you see something you like send me a message and lets chat and see where it goes from there....'

People who post a profile then you message them and after they see your profile they instantly block you if your real friendly here and contact enough people you will end of with so many blocks you will be kicked off this site

any of the following, which are boring, cliches,over used, lack creativity and just plain stupid....

1. " looking for someone honest" - on 9 out of 10 profiles
2. "looking for a good hearted man" - on 4 out of 5 profiles
3. "are there any good men?" - yes, but you're not interested in them
4. "i love my family and friends" - how unique and rare
5. "i love to laugh" - who doesn't?
6. "i'm tired of cheaters and liars" - your own bad choices, maybe if you got over the bad boy thing you could be happy?
7. "are there any real men?" - yes, but they don't look like pitt or clooney
8. "someone who can keep up" - yawn...you couldn't keep up to me on your best day
8. "comfortable in jeans and thongs but able to switch to heels and little black dress" - yeah, whatever
9. stating you're looking for someone "attractive" - really? I myself, want someone ugly
10. " i refuse to settle" - be prepared to be single for a LONG time

In agreement with this one too.
Over used headlines
