bbbert, I believe what that gentleman is looking for is a girl not driven by material gain. There's alot of that kind of people out there, who.. you know.. would rather LIVE than WORK.

Poor Spelling.

Sense of Humour is essential....but lord if I know what Centsahuumrer is.

okay that was meant as a joke...k?

Spelling counts in my book... set aside the witty men with the cute nics.

Honest - if you think you have to say it, you probably aren't
Nice guy - see above
"looking for 'honest', 'moral', 'old-fashioned virtues' " = "I was cheated on before and won't trust you, ever"

And the endless string of 'love outdoors, hiking, camping' blah blah.
Not. Interested. I'll go for a walk. Even a long one. In a park. In the city.

Here's a couple that drive me crazy,,,,,er.

"average",,,,,,,, Average is boring,,,plus today's "average" is not something to go around bragging about. Don't tell me you are "average". Think about it.

"must be able to make me laugh",,,,,, Who the hell am I???? Bozo the clown????


And one of the latest that actually had me rolling around laughing for hours. I viewed a profile of a local female with eight pics of her,,,,with eight DIFFERENT hair colours ranging the colours of the spectrum. The hair colours didn't bother me,,,I actually liked the blue and pink one. What did bother me was her stating that I "must not use drugs"!!!????? Are ya kidding???? You can change your hair colour more than you change your panties,,,but I can't have a puff???? Really????

So separated is a red flag. I suspected it was and even started a thread about it, but it went haywire and I think it was deleted.

I actually came in here because I wanted to post that I think the phrase "phoenix rising" is not so good. You will recall that the thread is a mythical bird that sets itself on fire every 500 years and then rises from its ashes.

I think that the phoenix posters are recovering from something terrible and could be on the rebound.

This is my 20000 cents . . . would be 2 but you know inflation and all.

re phoenix rising from the ashes - the point is that the phoenix does emerge, albeit a little singled, but still triumphant out of the ash can lol

profiles that say nothing and end with "if you want to know more, just ask!"

"no drama"... (people that thrive on drama say this)
"no games"... (people that thrive on playing games say this)
"I'm honest"... (only dishonest people brag about how honest they are)

I see I need to edit my profile a bit, lol!
To me, open-minded means that I'm not stuck on you being christian. I'm a mix myself of christian, buddhist, pagan, "new age", willing to discuss a variety of topics and willing to listen to other opinions...

I'm a geek - yes I've got an analytical brain. But that seems to send some guys running (unless they own a comic book store). My interpretation of that is I don't spend my paycheque on clothes, shoes, make-up. But I still wear nice clothes, get my hair cut, etc...

Red flags: nice guy - lacks boundaries/backbone, willing to do just about anything to please you, ewww! I'd like a good guy, would prefer a great guy. Treat me like a princess/queen, again ewww! Don't put me up high so I can fall off that pedestal.
Soul mates smacks of dependency on someone to make a happy, unrealistic life.

Spelling errors throughout a profile. I can let one or two slip, I've done it myself when my brain goes faster than my fingers and I type hear instead of here, I do know the usage difference.

My 2 cents...

The one that scares me away is:
"Walking on the beach with you while poking dead things with a stick..."

I remember a profile that said that one about "You must be THIS tall to ride this train!" Can't remember how tall the woman was, though.

From the profile of the first woman to ever message me on PoF, back in 2007:

"Christ, my five dogs and my six foster children are my life."

No photo, but she sent me one. Even though it was just a strip showing her eyes, it was obviously coming from someone not at all comfortable with her BMI.

We never met.
