Without naming anyone here's a few of my favorite unfinished profiles I've come across. These meager entries are the ONLY info contained in these profiles.

- I'll fill this out later.
- Beach!
- Want a husband.
- I like to do fun things!
- White only!
- I hate filling these out.
- There's no one like me!
- I'm an open book.
- I HATE liars and cheats!!!
- I'm shy.
- I'm for real.
- !!
- Ask.

And my favorite one of all...

- N/A

Profiles like these make me laugh. They may as well just say "meh, **** this."

You're not trying.

I had a great laugh. Sadly, though, this is true.

On my profile on another platform I strictly stated no republicans/trump supporters/anti-vaccination proponents. It brought a lot of attention, sometimes not favorable. Oh, well.

If somebody wants a "white !!," it's their prerogative. If they're pretty enough, they'll get money and laid, anyway.

Profiles are personal advertisements.
People can put whatever they want on it.
If you don't like it, pass them on by...you wouldn't like them
anyways.

Not sure why people have to tell other people (who they're not
interested in) how to write their profile.

Unless of course, they ask you for your advice.
Most people don't appreciate unsolicited advice or criticism.

Here is a response:
Also :

IF YOU ARE TALLER THAN 5’3 THEN PLEASE HIT THE BACK BUTTON NOW !! I like my women on the petite side. Sorry if I sound like a douche, but that’s just how I feel.

With that said, I am looking for a woman. NOT a girl, but a woman. I want a woman who talks like a woman (not a man).

Oh yes, and you MUST have a tattoo on your lower back. That is a turn on for me. If you do NOT have a tattoo on your lower back, then you are NOT date-able.

Also.. IF YOU ARE OVER 30, I WILL DELETE YOUR MESSAGE. I WILL NOT DATE A GIRL WHO IS THAT OLD.

Also, I only date women who are fit. You must work out and have at least a set of “C’s”. Anything less and you will be deleted from my inbox. Sorry if I sound like a **stard, but I know what I want.

Also, if you wear pants, I will NOT date you. You must wear a skirt. Wearing pants is ghetto, and I do not date ghetto.

Oh, and I don’t like girls who watch soap operas, chick flicks, and Sex in the city. If you do, or have, we will NOT get along.

You MUST be able to make me laugh! If you can't then you = Boo hoo!

As I've mentioned countless times, lengthy profiles are close to non-existent, in my area at least. I also try not to judge too much based on what's written in a profile, because for the most part, it gives you no idea what a face to face experience might be like.

Having said that, it might be a good idea to prepare for the worst from a woman whose profile states "I get bored easily" or "think you can keep up with me??" In my experience, these have been hyperactive spazoids who want to drag your ass on 12 hour excursions and every outing has to be something NEW.

F*ck. That. Shit.

If they have photo's of being on "zip lines", I push the back button because they are un dateable.

A trend I have noticed is men's profile in which the heading is "No"

With the quotes there, as well. WTH? I thought maybe this stood for something that I'm not aware of, so I checked the Urban Dictionary, nothing there about it. So what is up with profiles that say "no"?
The rest of these profiles are usually blank, or say "ask..open book...will fill out later...don't like talking about myself.

"Looking for Friends"

No.

This is a dating site. You should already have friends. Date them.
