One thing about the "I Hate..." profiles is that you can tell how hard their life has been by the seriousness of their complaints.
"I hate guys that leave the toilet seat up," sounds a LOT less severe than, "I hate getting arrested for DWI on a Tuesday afternoon."

I told them it was an easy way to weed out the obtuse.

What do you have against fat people?

Nothing, as long as they're not thick upstairs.

Yes, I've seen my share of profiles, and a rising trend in these write-ups where they seem to have some kind of axe to grind.

I found that real odd when they get irritated at common questions men ask a woman in order to get to know her. It means they have a serious lack of patience.

I've even seen women state, "Quit asking me the same questions like 'What is it are you looking for in a man.' I don't know the answer to that question, so quit asking it!"

Some get down right degrading or condescending. Apparently one woman had in her profession which was an acronym ICU RN. And she said, "If you don't know what an ICU RN is, then move on!"

I figured what it was though, considering I had close relatives in the hospital, but don't get upset about it if asked.

One even had an FAQ (frequently asked questions) list up. LOL

I have to laugh at the "No players, cheaters, or liars email me!" as if that will STOP them from contacting her. lol!

^^^^^
Add to that "No one night stands, booty calls, or FWB", but they have sexually provocative pictures up. Pictures, like actions, speak louder than words.

vvvvv I could not agree more. Think "opposite" when reading a profile!

And what's with the cliche'd "I like to live life to the fullest" or " Don't sweat the small stuff". lol

Many of these people have recently been deeply hurt or disappointed in some way in past relationships.

I think it is true that "Nobody wants you when you're down". Nobody has the patience to be their social worker to help them work things through. Or their Savior -- to save them from themselves. Or wants to be "nailed to a cross" for the sins of past lovers.

Sadly, these people will just have to work through their issues on their own -- and it WILL be lonely. Only thereafter, should they attempt to get back in the dating game.

Or else, they can be stuck for life with the "self-fulfilling prophecies" they prophesy for themselves.

I met far more men with my "hates" than I did when I went the cheery but overused "I love to laugh" route.


Oh, you don't "Live life to the fullest"? LOL

Responding to an angry profile is the same as applying for a job that you don't want. Not anyone's job to save, fix, or rescue anyone!

As opposed to what? Living life to the "emptiest"? Or would that be the "half-fullest"?

"No liars or cheats need apply"

Attractive women don't have this problem. Smart women don't have this problem.

wouldn't date them. But, I wouldn't date the angry, bitter people who post on the forums either. You just learn very quickly who to stay away from.

you may avoid me then.

I would date someone who is slightly jaded and mentions that, but it's because I can understand where that comes from. So long as its not extreme, misogynist or reeking of potential usury/axe to grind, I wouldn't mind.

I know what you mean....stating the obvious in your profile isn't necessary.

Not only is it not necessary, it's counter-productive. It sends the message that you've allowed these cheaters and liars to victimize you in the past, and that you'd be an easy target.

I do understand that so many ladies must get tons of bad emails, ALL kinds of bad emails...
I used to get instant messages from men of all ages ... commenting on the legs, but that isn't happening any more since I put restrictions on my instant messaging.

It's been my experience that when a person is that "angry" or perhaps "bitter", it's better not to get involved ... unless of course that's what gives your life meaning. I don't need any person carrying that kind of baggage. I generally don't have problems with others' baggage, but that kind of angry/bitter ... I just don't get involved in it.

so my question? does anyone still try or is willing to connect with men or women that they have some interest in but that persons profile has some serious negativity in it? and how has it worked?
NOPE!!! it's really not interesting to me at all.

hmm... you know this, how? Know a woman who was a fitness model and a tanning model who was asked to audition for the sports illustrated swimsuit issue...

she was totally utterly gorgeous. And extremely intelligent. And she got nothing BUT liars and cheats.

Couple flight attendant friends. Also gorgeous. Also smart. Also got a plethora of liars and cheats.


All the people who think someone who is beautiful has no dating problems, never has bad treatment, has roses and flowers and sunshine...

are delusional. NO one is exempt, and people if they would quit projecting all these entitled assumptions on people and get angry about the fact when they are so often totally wrong? It would change the vibe totally; and they would have WAY more success and a lot less cynicism.

Ditch the anger, focus on the stuff they LIKE. Not rage against things they are only suspecting, when they have no idea whatsoever what is going on behind the other screen. It could be MASSIVELY different than you think.

But if I come across one of the angry enraged? I know it is only a matter of time I will end up taking a missile that has built up by them, that they need to unload on SOMEONE, and I am one of the blanketed damned ones.

No thanks :)

No, I dont contact or get involved with someone who seems angry. I don't do it in real life so why would I online? Life is too short.

I take profiles with a grain of salt.
Nobody dates a profile, we date the person.
