Blu,
Well, if he's in Florida - for instance - you have to give the credit for the effort it would require

edit: Holy hell ... I just realized you're in Nova Scotia. If a guy is willing to make that trip, it's really saying somethin' LMAO

Well .. Most profiles are either too short to offer anything, are full of clichés or resemble a copy of war and peace.

I say most men do read the profiles....but go back to the pictures as they do.....and then read what they hope they are seeing and reading.

Let's play the game of stating a simple story and letting one person on here pass it on to the next, and by the time it gets around and back to the original sender......the story will be totally different in content and meaning.......

Pictures and profiles are just the front door advertisement for the substance that is inside if you decide to enter and browse around.......seeing what is there and if you care to buy or not.....

Enjoy the pond and fishing all.....it can be worth the effort if you take the time to know the person.....I know that is has for me....

Give me a pic and the Cliff's notes ... we're talking about men here. That's what makes no sense to me about the profiles of most women. They write the profiles they would like to see, not the ones that will be effective.

Think about this for a second, ladies. How many times have you ever seen a man read an owner's manual for anything? How many times do they put together something requiring "some assembly" and have parts left over? Do you think we read beyond the first couple of words? My suggestion is this: Keep it simple. Use bullet points, each point summarized in five words or less, on your likes/dislikes. Men will read that.


Always target your message at the right audience. Simple marketing concept

Yami wrote that and I think it’s right on as far as what men are like.

I prefer a nice flirty 3 line intro to tell people who she is and every effort to avoid making it into a help wanted ad.

Ah, but IRL, I bet Blu gets a lot of the same kind of guys that don't read profiles approaching her too.

*Wow, she's hot!
Hey, wanna go watch nascar some time?
*Wow, she's a a great looking woman, how am I gonna get her in the sack!
* Oh, she said something, I think I heard the word Nascar...
Yea, there's a race this afternoon!
* Oh oh, she's frowning.... ok, new tact
How about camping!
* Wow, I gotta find a way to get her in bed!
* Oh, she said something.... I think I heard the word camping in there somewhere
Yea, I know a neat place down by the lake and I have a great tent!
* Whats that look of digust???? I don't get it! Doesn't she like sex???

I am semi-literate, and pseudo-profound, and I do like to read about people, probably the main reason i am hear is to study people.

I hate profiles that only say...

hi,
just ask,
tee hee...

Sure looks count, for men and women.

Why would I not put that in my profile. I like some of you don't just read/delte my messages. I respond to all at some point. It may not be the smae day but I do respond. I don't want to hurt someone that I'm not interested in. I think everyone on here would have some self esteem issues. There right here for all to see or we'd be out in the world trying to find that "someone". Most guys that have emailed me have been kind and considerate. One guy from this thread was very nice and he was quite a bit younger. Too bad he lives so far. The point of this whole thread was that someone missed something on my profile and it turned out that I had to end up telling him no. I myself am a kind and considerate person and don't like to hurt people's feelings. Looks like I'm not going to make it long on these forums!

Arriano,
I'm just 9 credits short of completing my marketing MBA. The education is working


maybe blu is going for a cerebral eruidite type instead of a wham bam thank ye man type? Hence a longer profile?

Now, wait a second. I’m not exactly Einstein, but I would consider myself to be a fairly intellectual guy. I want bullet points, dammit!!! I think every profile of someone who is actually looking should be laid out like a PowerPoint presentation. It gives you something to learn about later on.

Yami .. they just don’t get it

Mind you, Powerpoints are for meetings so you can go in depth and open the floor for discussion, help you manage the meeting and close the deal if possible where as the profile is an ad thats supposed to open the door slightly and hopefully from the right demographic.

Don’t get mad, but your profile is so badly written that if people actually read it, you wouldn’t be getting any email.

I'm in no way criticising your profile vix. I'm merely shedding light on that which interests men. You could write you are a quadrapelegic nun and someone would find that attractive. I was speaking to the fact that even if I read all the way through a profile, unless it is profound in some way it simply blends into the landscape. Trust me I have few standards as profiles are concerned. Good topic kid.

I do, but the work I've been puting into on this sight hasent been paying off so I've been more and more inactive over the past weeks so apparently reading a whole profile isnt enough work.

Wow! It's brutal in here lol. Some of us do read the profiles and can even manage not to be intimidated by women who are smart, opinionated and successful.

. . . i'm still stuck on Blu's Butt . . . .

YES, I read the entire profile except when I'm put off by spelling, punctuation, or grammar errors. I have read many -- mostly for entertainment reasons.

I am absolutely enchanted by the person attached to one.

That was too funny.

Although from the "Men who can't clean" thread, any guy who would do that would just get a mouthful of dust. MMMMMmmmm.
