For me it's :
1 Looking for a" Generous" man ie "Get your hand in your pocket squire your paying"
2 " Must be able to make me laugh "so what ....are you expected to turn up in a clowns site with a red nose and a water pistol?
3"Must know how to treat a lady"...tends to couple up with number one in my book.
As i don't have aDVD or Video i won't even go there as that kicks that one into touch for a start.
Dont think i will say anymore as it could the the impression of one one who has become a tad somewhat cynical.lol

I wont bite...only if you ask me to.

Night in on sofa watching a DVD with a bottle of wine

Looking for a good hearted woman

Help me mend my broken heart

I am tactile, looking for a tactile woman (equates to I wasn't getting any in last relationship so I'm damn well gonna make sure I do this time)

Anything you want to know just ask

I dont know what to write about myself I'll get back to this later

Looking for 'fun'...I learned quite quickly his idea of fun was very different from mine


YES everything she just said especially on the "just ask me anything" usually you ask an then they can't even put together a 3 word sentence..or never reply..

an on the "just looking for some fun" most women know what this code stands for an it DON'T mean actually going out on a real date together in public..

i can add 3 to the list the "i promise you wont be disappointed" line after reading that i already am LOL.

an the over rated " Oh im not like all the rest of the men im different" MMM HMMM..

an the failed line of when you ask so what are you looking for? if they reply back an say im looking for you..Uh ok that's a weird response typically their not serious about actually wanting to meet anybody.

Message 30 takes some beating for post of the thread.

There's a whole bunch of similar little phrases which all mean 'I like going out and spending your money' which isn't really appealing. And I agree with what everyone's said about 'sick of players' type lines.

Please implement a ban on the following ;)

• "Gym"
• "Zumba"
• Profession: "I have one"
• "lol"
• "blahblahblahblah" x required number of characters
• Copy/Paste: If you want to be successful on POF, try this:
1. Talk about your hobbies.
2. Talk about your goals and aspirations
3. Talk about yourself and what makes you unique.
4. Describe your taste in music.
• "All txt spk lyk dis"

"Anything you want to know, just ask" ... on an otherwise/practically empty profile. Ask what? You've given me nothing to go on.

People who type in "txt spk" or any other variation. You wouldn't turn up to a meeting/date in scruffy/dirty clothes if you have clean ones hanging in the wardrobe, so why type like that when you're perfectly capable of spelling, grammar and punctuation. I accept some people have dyslexia or other problems, but otherwise I prefer people who don't butcher the written word because they think it makes them look "cool" or somesuch.

"My friends tell me I'm..." Of course they do - they're your friends. They wouldn't be your friends to start with if they *didn't* think you were nice/charming/sweet/funny/wild etc.

As other people have said, the whole, "no cheaters/players/liars" etc.

Rudeness. I get it, you want someone who takes care of themselves, who can join you on that hike, or run marathons with you or whatever, or for whatever other reason you can think of. Nothing wrong with that, but there's no need to be rude about it.

That Marylin Monroe quote. You're not being original, or feisty, or whatever you think. It's just annoying.

"Looking for a prince/want to be treated like a princess." If you're looking for a prince, there are a fair few of them round the world - Harry's not the only one left.
Personally, I don't want to be treated like a "princess". I want to be treated like an EQUAL.

"I'm a cool guy/girl... I go to work, hang out with my friends, love my family, love life. Message me, yeah?"
Why? I have no idea what sort of person you are. I don't know if you go out clubbing every weekend, what your interests or hobbies are, what your beliefs are. Give me a REASON to message you.

"Real guys want meat, not a bone!"
Argh. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with having confidence in the way you look. But you don't need to put down a whole load of other women in order to show this. In fact, I always feel that this sort of statement is defensive, inferring a lack of confidence rather than a lot of it.

If you mean the one which goes , ''if you cant handle me at my worst, you dont deserve me at my best'', then i totally agree. To me that screams out, ''i'm a psycho with rapid mood swings and a split personality''.

And don't get me started on BBW...you're not a BBW, you're a fatty!!!


Yep, that quote.

And err... thanks.
I didn't choose "BBW" as some fat pride thing. (I'm actually working on losing weight at the moment.) But out of the drop down selection that POF offers, I chose the option that I felt wasn't going to be misleading, as I know I'm more than "a few extra pounds." If POF were to offer "overweight" or something similar as an option, then I wouldn't be using the "BBW" tag.
Though, your statement is just the sort of thing I meant in my post. You don't find fat people attractive? That's absolutely fine, and I definitely don't expect everyone to do so. I just feel that some people could employ a little more tact and diplomacy, or just common courtesy and manners. I find rudeness about as attractive as other people find fat.
