I'm just as guilty as the next person with common peeves on my profile and I'm not changing it... but I do have one of my own:

I am a father of two wonderful marvelous children that are the centre of my world....

um yep... I'd freakin hope so.... you and every other guy on here.

I'm surprised the "looking for a good guy" hasn't showed up! Guys just remember that when she says that, there is usually duct tape involved & its painful to remove! lol

Danimal, I totally understand why this is used so much, but have to say growing up is inevitable and growing up is optional. Blowing bubbles in chocolate milk is fun :o)

I do believe this term gets used to frequently, however it's related to the amount of guys who still don't get the concept of a job, security, and responsibility. Far to many men still think it's fun to sit around the house and play video games all day like they were still 13. Just my 2 cents, have a great day.

"No d-bags",

"Looking for someone real"

Looking for a "nice" guy

Work hard, play hard

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

Just trying this out.. Because my friends told me to.

"just ask"

LONG walks on the beach....
this summer I was at the beach. I put my head phones on, sucked in my stomach and started walking down the beach.
About what seemed like about 35 minutes, I was sweating and stepped on numerous sharp items, I looked at my watch and saw I had been only walking 7 minutes....WHAT the hell. No long walks on the beach, ever!

"Young at heart" annoys me, I want ask if they had a heart transplant?

If you are a player or looking for a booty call, keep it moving. I thought players weren't suppose to announce their intentions.

Wow I wondered about that fish thing too as I've seen guys holding them, fishing for them and eating them.I actually saw one profile picture of a guy with no shirt on holding a sardine above his opened mouth while looking at the camera - it was really fetching.

My ad doesn't contain any of the phrases mentioned. :):) What does that mean? I am abnormal, perhaps a little eccentric or unique? LOL

"No D-bags with a pic of themselves flexing in the mirror"
Specially when the profile has 4 pictures of cleveage, and a mini skirt photo.

Nope, none of the above. Humorous, though, and you get kudos for paying attention! Have a fine day!

Did anyone notice? EVERY parent in here has an "Amazing" or "Wonderful" kid?
-- It's OK if that's the way you feel about your kids - but those two words are SERIOUSLY overused by a LOT of parents in here.

I also think the word 'Sassy' gets used too often. If ladies were truly bold and 'forward', they would be doing a lot more first messages instead of waiting for guys to message them first.

Have you noticed how many women post their picture and say that they are pretty??
I can see what you look like. Do you think your words will trick me into thinking my eyes are lying to me? :)
Same with the women who claim to be 'thin'.

The one that drives me nuts is-

"I'm simple."

This line is in 80% of all the profiles I've read. Made up stat but close I'm sure.

Lenny in Of Mice and Men is simple. You can like the simple things in life. You can like to live simply. Your life can be kept simple. But if you are truly simple, well more power to you for bravely putting it out there in your profile.

"I like to have fun"
This really does my head in. If you didn't like having fun then not having fun would presumably be your idea of a good time. So in fact not having fun would be fun, which you like having, which means you couldn't like not having fun so why say it?

I should drink less coffee...

Alright, that was pretty good for laughs -
I haven't re- inspected My profile, yet I am nearly certain what I've got going on is on the opposing side - as in Least used phrases!

"Must know how to treat a woman."

Sure I know how to treat a woman.
Depends on what century you want to pull the behavior from.
I can either club you and drag you back to my cave or buy you dinner and seduce you with my own poetry...either way Im treating you like woman.
