The Top Online Dating Sites To Actually Meet Someone
Can't decide between the top dating sites? Let this specially-chosen list (determined over more than a decade of hands-on research), along with links to full, in-depth and unbiased reviews, help you decide.
A mix of social networking, compatibility-testing and online dating, OkCupid is an unusual free dating site in that it allows its members to create the matching questions already pre-determined at sites like eHarmony or Chemistry. Additionally, users can contact anyone on the system - unlike the two online dating sites mentioned previously – whether or not you are matched well as an Enemy, Friend or Partner. More »
A unique compatibility matching system takes twenty-nine different personality variables and determines who you are most suitable to date.
Unlike most other dating sites, eHarmony only allows users to contact those the system has determined to be highly compatible, and sometimes this process can take weeks - even months - to receive enough of a sample size to pay the higher-than-normal fee. More »
Out of the top online dating sites, Lavalife is the most versatile of the bunch, allowing users to join under a variety of different dating personas that can be connected or kept separate at the users' choice (Dating, Relationships, and Intimate Encounters). As well, a bevy of services are available to paying users not found on the other major sites (video chat for one), and the site boasts more users in Canada than any other dating site in the world.

A review of the top dating sites would be odd if it lacked PoF (as it is known to its forum users), as it is considered to be the first successful free dating site model on the Internet.
The amount of people using this feature-rich site (which includes heavily-trafficked forums, compatibility questionnaires and the very popular Who's Seen Me button) is astronomical in its sheer ability to connect with users around the globe looking for friendship, love, and anything else in between.

Match.com consistently ranks as one of the largest dating sites in the world at Hitwise and other statistic-gathering websites - which means more users to be matched up within your area. With Match.com also claiming that over 250,000 people a year find a partner through the site, it's definitely a dating site worth looking into. More »
Many of the dating site lists posted by the top research companies (Hitwise, Comscore) tout SinglesNet as one of the biggest, most trafficked dating sites on the internet today.
Although it may have a lot of search traffic, many have not enjoyed their experiences on the site. That doesn't mean it shouldn't be listed here, as it is technically a 'top' site, but there are much better choices when it comes to online dating.
Date Hookup quickly rose up the Hitwise top dating site charts as a free dating site to contend with. Straightforward without a lot of features or hullabuloo, Date Hookup offers another viable online dating site alternative. More »

Self Deprecating & Funny Dating Profile Example
Ok… so let’s start:
I’d like first to apologize for the typos I might have… I must confess I’m French (I know… nobody’s perfect) and I’m pretty much new in this country (I’ve been around for 2 years).
I thought I would throw some keywords that would describe what I like to do. If you recognize yourself in some of them, I think it might be worth taking the time to keep on reading my profile. If you don’t keep on reading, I swear I won’t be upset with you. I will never know anyway ??
Travel, surprises, music, dancing, sports, books, last minute plans, open mind, photography, museum, craziness, spontaneity, going out (but also staying in), sharing, simplicity, respect, flip flops (yes, the sandals), down to earth (however fantasy is also very important), people, casual, word, news, work, sense of humor about yourself, awareness.
And yet another short list of things that I’m not really fond of:
– Cars (can’t tell why I put this one first…)
– Self-centered people (but, hey… Have you ever heard anybody saying “yes, yes, I am definitely self-centered.” So this one doesn’t really count!!)
– TV (even if I like one or two shows and some movies)
– Superficial people (but same problem as #2…)
In addition, if you happen to pronounce the following sentences regularly, we’re definitely increasing the chance of a good match here:
“To be honest, I don’t know”
“J’adore les escargots” ok this one doesn’t really count either… ??
And last (I promise), if you think that Paris is the most beautiful city in the world, I think you should tell our parents to get ready for the wedding ??
The French are known for being snooty, and yet this guy takes that into consideration and pokes fun at it. He has a great sense of humor and comes off as goofy but real.
He’s a guy that likes “going out” but doesn’t mind “staying in” which creates a sense of balance for a girl. He likes hitting the town, but he’s not going to be partying to the wee hours of the night all the time. His confidence comes out through his sense of humor.
But WAIT!…nooooo not a BUTT a BUT, as in this is a pretty good profile BUT he has a paramount profile problem . Paramount is such a “girly appreciated” word—let me translate to manglish: This guy is making a HUGE mistake in his profile: “Attraction Killer” Red Flag #4…
Don’t make the same mistake. Discover YOUR #1 dating profile “attraction killer” & how to fix it…
I live by myself, I pay my own rent, I wear socks that match and I love my mom. I am a confident, attractive & comedic person.
I do stunt work. Have you ever seen it in a movie when a hot actor has to reveal his naked ass? That’s my job. Oh, and I’m in the fitness biz, as well as back in school finishing up my pre-med reqs.
Movies: Gladiator, Fight Club, Braveheart, Anchorman!
• That’s none of your business ??
On a typical Tuesday night I am: Trying to figure out the major and minor products when 1-bromo-2-propene reacts with potassium tert-butoxide. Either that or partying like a rock star.
The most private thing I am willing to admit: I wear a special cologne. It’s called Sex Panther by Odeon. It’s illegal in nine countries…and it’s made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good.
Sexy, smart, fit and fun. I don’t think that’s too much to ask…lol.
He’s a manly man. It goes back to evolution and the way women are wired. We like to feel protected by a strong man that will bring home the bacon and make sure we don’t get eaten by dinosaurs.
This profile speaks to the primitive side of a woman’s brain yet this guy also has a great sense of humor, confidence and most importantly, loves his mom. His confidence doesn’t come off as cocky. It is more about him being secure with his masculinity and having fun with it at the same time.
And although “Mr. Manly” seems to have it, as they say, in the bag. I do have a bone to pick with his profile, well a few bones. “What can that be?!” I can here you exclaim!
Take the free Dating Profile “Attraction Killer” Quiz to find out…
This dating profile has been added to The eDatingDoc Academy: Online Dating Workshop for Men.
profile from a woman’s perspective:
From all of the other profiles listed, this guy was a “regular Joe” with average looks, but his sense of confidence in what he knew he was looking for in a gal; along with the great many adventures he had been on, gave him a “knight-in-shinning-armor-returning-from-slaying-a-dragon” appeal. Girls love that!
YESSSS, you know what I am about to fill you in on. You guessed it, Regular-Yet-Adventurous-Joe fumbled with a few things when it comes to his profile; and can you guess what that is? “Attraction Killer” #2!
Take the quiz so you don’t make this mistake and to get a deeper understanding of how to attract your exact type girlfriend…
Basically I love life and I love living life. I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, restaurants, laughing, goIng to cultural events, and sociaLizing with quality peOple. Its just better liVing and sharing lifE with someone else ??
I’m originally from the DC area, did my undergrad in NY, and Have lived in a few different cOuNtries. I have a car LOL… I racE cars on race trackS for fun. It’s a greaT hobby.
I enjoy being active, healthy and Staying fit. FaMily and friends Are impoRtanT to me as well.
If you’d like to know more Say “hi”. I didn’t reveAl a lot about my Self for you to read on purpose. Rather we chat, talk, engage in conversation to get to know each other instead of us reading through a long page in this section about each other. Also, just because someone lookS like a good match “on paper”, doesn’t necessarilY translate in reality.
Note: The bold letters are an anagram message.
This guy has a zest for life and is all about positive energy, so much so, that when you read his profile, it puts you in a good mood.
He finds a way of standing out by incorporating an anagram in his profile—very witty and original. Just as a guy can get bored sifting through profiles so does a girl. The more you can incorporate an element that will make you standout, while remaining true to yourself and your personality, the better.
But even this ORIGINAL profile has several things that could have made it SOOOO much better. And those things could mean the difference between connecting with a “not my type” kinda gal and an all out TEN “perfect for me” BABE. What could that be? Get your online dating approach analyzed to find out!
1. The boldest thing that I have ever done has to do with my first internet date—she lived in Romania and I flew there to meet her (I was entirely convinced that she was my soul mate… (I was young). Anyway it was really a triple whammy on boldness, because of my fear of flying, traveling to a new country solo and first date jitters all rolled into one. What about you?
2. The Never Ending Story, Ghostbusters, The Labyrinth, the Princess Bride. I love 80’s movies and I can dance the night away to 80s music. Speaking of dance, I am recently into Salsa, and Tango… I plan to become a fantastic dancer for the next time I find myself on an exotic island one night at a Tiki bar somewhere.
3. They gave me a hard time for dropping out of school… and created my own software business. We help non-computer nerds with their online businesses. It is my dream job, no schedule, no boss and 96.5% free time.
4. I was taught Reiki in Romania, where I lived for two years. Avoided being bitten by vampires, but yes, they do have them there.
5. I am addicted to rock, ’cause I am a climber. Sometimes when I walk by a brick building I will stop and fondle the wall, it reminds me of rock, I have a subconscious urge to climb it… if your a climber you will know what I mean, and if not… I’ll take you climbing a few times and you will be doing it too.
8. I would rather be a rock star then a movie star. My personal theory on music, is that it is just pure, emotional communication, have you ever listened to a song in another language but still understood on an emotional level, what the song was trying to express? Music can bring emotions out in us and bring us back to emotions that we felt in the past… it’s a talent that I wish I had, and emotions are really the most addictive chemicals.
9. I believe in the law of attraction, weird random events that seem to unlikely to be merely coincidence happen more frequently then they should. I spent a number of years in my early 20’s road tripping and meditating. I think that thought has an energy which impacts manifest reality and shapes it in very specific ways.
Analytical, kinesthetic thinker
Anti-planner, pro spontaneity.
A shy geek and a smooth operator…. that’s approximately me.
10. Tofino is magic, I first learned to surf there.
12. Scary movies
If you are hot, a girl will check you out, but that doesn’t make you a keeper. From all the profiles listed here, this guy was the one with the supermodel looks but his profile reads like someone that isn’t aware of how good looking he is. He is searching for love and putting himself out there.
This guy shares an enduring story of his first attempt at on-line love. He is down-to-earth and romantic yet has a nerdy side. For those of you out there that are good looking and striking out with women—balance is what equals success. To better understand the importance of combining contrasting qualities check out the dating username guide by clicking here.
But now: Here ye, Here ye Knights in Shining Armor, there is something I must inform you about this profile…it is off due to a few things. Did you figure out what that might be? Don’t worry, “Attraction Killer” Red Flag #2 is tough to spot, especially when we’re doing it in our own online dating approach. Take the quiz for instant enlightenment!
I crave what the poet Richard Siken wrote in “Crush.”
But I understand that love is sometimes more like “you fit into me” by Margaret Atwood.
James Bond is my mentor and The Most Interesting Man in the World is my life coach. A modern day Arthur Rimbaud, if you will.
Recently my best friend paid me this compliment: “you navigate seamlessly between fun and serious, sensual and sexual, romantic and raunchy”. You can get a grasp of what I’m like from my friends prospective from this quote, and the “raunchy” part I hope is more about my sense of humor. Lol.
I used to say the ocean/beach, but I’ve since learned that I would give up the beach for some daily spooning. (the hugging kind)
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it’s all about?
When will they make male birth control pills?
If everyone Wang Chungs tonight, what would tomorrow be like?
Or the great debate of green vs red Tabasco, do you want the heat or the flavor?
This guy is a walking dichotomy. He has just the right amount of “laid back” demeanor as he does “go-go-go” attitude. Most women like the notion of being grabbed hard and kissed soft, and this fellow looks like he can get the job done.
He’s in tuned with his tender side, opting to trade in the ocean for “daily spooning”, all the while not coming off as too girly. He has a whimsical side and women always respond well to that—it allows them to fantasize.
B-B–B-BUT…oh come on, by now you know that there is a BUT coming. There are some PROBLEMO’s with his profile description…Yesssss, you read right! There is some stuff going awry. What is that? “Attraction Killer” #1 which is The Age 40’s Profile Writing Paradox. The Doc breaks it down like Charlie Brown for you when you take that quiz…
This dating profile has been added to The eDatingDoc Academy: Online Dating Workshop for Men.
Let’s start at the end. This guy does a great job at putting the girl at ease. He mentions that in the worse case scenario “we might end up becoming great friends”, eliminating any forced expectations. He starts off his profile by being humorous and even a bit on the mysterious side. Girls fancy mystery (as long as the truth gradually comes to light as the relationship progresses). He also has tapped into his childlike side, which is always an endearing quality. This guy is mysterious, compassionate, fun and funny—an irresistible combo to women if he didn’t totally fumble it with “Attraction Killer” #2!
Okay, so you know the drill by now…take the quiz so you don’t make the ONE mistake that could kill your online dating chances:
I just moved back to Australia after finishing ye ol’ American Film Institute for screenwriterin’. It’s like summer camp for makin’ movies, so I’m happy about it.
I am a graduate of Colorado State University, where I double-majored in English and Journalism. I sometimes ‘fast’ accidentally, because I forget to eat. Then I get real hungry. And I eat. A lot.
I like public transportation and wandering around cities.
I like mountains. Seeing them, climbing them, smelling them. I like the thin air of it all.
I also like playing basketball and dancing. Team Sports that involve running are good.
I have a neglected 12-string-guitar named Calypso, who now only has 10.5 strings, but I like playing her.
I have a banjo who’s in perfect condition, but that’s because I never play him.
I absolutely can’t stand the taste or smell of bananas. They make me nauseous. I’m not a picky eater…Rocky Mountain Oysters, Frog Legs, insects, whatever, I’ll eat it. As long as there’s no banana involved.
Wasteland, by Dan Bern, is the best song of the past 15 years (live version only. The studio version sounds neutered).
I think a lot of maxims are false, including ‘Don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it’ and ‘fair and balanced’ and ‘Just Do It’ and ‘got milk?’
I do believe that ‘love conquers all,’ but that’s because I’m a hopeless romantic.
Most of the time, I don’t take myself very seriously. Most of the time, you shouldn’t, either.
I am absent-minded, laid-back, and dash-friendly…
You are beautiful, kind, compassionate, intelligent, witty, wonderful, giving, generous, self-assured, modest, humble, outgoing, shy, etc.
Or if you just want to give me something valuable, like eternal wisdom, a free ticket to Paris, or a house.
This guy comes off as a solid, down-to-earth, sweet gent with a great sense of humor. But in no way is he a pushover or worse yet, boring.
When he describes what he enjoys, he does it in a way that the vision is clear. I can see the mountain, the banjo and even taste the bananas. He has stimulated my sense and women appreciate that ability in a man.
He brings to light his positive attributes and makes light of his quirky preferences. “I’m dash-friendly” is so funny and out of the ordinary you just have to chuckle. I want to get to know him, and meet his banjo and guitar (insert wink). Hook the reader in without giving away everything–good going Mr. Dash Guy!
Ohhhhh I just love this guy…I have a hard time picking a favorite but he’s up there on that list. If only he had the eDatingDoc’s secret recipe to extra crispy awesomeness he’d be #1. But now YOU can find out and make sure you’re not following in Mr. Banana Banjo’s footsteps. Check out “ye ol’” Dating Profile Analyzer Quiz for the awesomeness…
I may not be Brad Pitt, but I definitely don’t qualify to be Brad “Spit” neither (smile). Details at 11.
NOW THAT I’VE GOT YOUR ATTENTION…….You’re dealing with the ultimate gentleman/bad boy. No matter what happens, at the end of the day I’ll make you smile, laugh, and wonder, “How come I’ve never met a guy like this before. ”
I love to listen to smooth jazz music as I relax on my back patio. I love to talk smack when I’m beating someone in a game of pool. I hate it when women are “DROP DEAD GORGEOUS” on the outside and “DROP DEAD GARBAGE” on the inside.
I loooove to sing Luther Vandross songs. Also, I would love to be blessed with the lady of my life. Want to know more. Well, that can’t happen unless you contact me. Hate playing games. Hate being told lies. Well, come on…I’M YOUR MAN. YOU NEED THIS in your life. PEACE & BLESSINGS. You still haven’t messaged me yet. LET’S GO…CHOP, CHOP. (smile) MAY GOD BLESS YOU INDEED!! I receive messages frequently but I do respond quickly. XOXOXOXO applause:
I’m preparing to audition to be the next Calvin Klein underwear model. Wish me luck, baby!!
A few things important to me: Jesus Christ, God, music, movies, laughter, sex, and peace of mind.
I spend a lot of time thinking аbout: Having sex with Sofia Vergara, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, and Kim Kardashian . I heard that they are quite fond of me so I figure that’s the least that I could do. AIN’T I SWEET.
I’m usually doing whatever makes me money or makes me smile! If you win my sweepstakes, you will automatically win a chance to do these things with me as well. TICKETS ON SALE NOW.
This guy is so funny he’s irresistible. Right from the get-go his profile starts off with a catchy line that is knee jerking funny and it doesn’t come off as too cliche or to “out there”. His profile is so humorous I don’t really care what he looks like—I want to get to know him, find out where he gets his outrageous sense of humor. He represents the kind of guy that will keep me in stitches and feeling good.
Including your specific sense of humor is important. Click the “TAKE THE QUIZ” button below so you don’t make the same mistake made here and can move up the latter of Casanova-ness from “Class Clown” to “All Around Awesomesauce”. The eDatingDoc is to the rescue…
I love to live an active life and explore. I am very passionate about helping others and I am currently in the process of putting together a fundraiser to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis by climbing Mt. Rainier. The climb is also being dedicated to one of my patients that I have become very close to who loves adventure and mountains although unfortunately his lung function prevents him from chasing his dreams due to the high altitude.
I am a complete goofball, dorky, and passionate.
Old fashioned to a certain degree. I laugh every chance I get. I have a love for the outdoors and anything that involves me being on the water. Coffee. Campfires. A challenge. I love movies. Inspirational people.
A girl’s gotta have a… sense of style, the ability to run in heels, a spark in her eye, and a killer smile.
This guy likes to keep things short, and sweet yet what he writes about is compelling. He’s an individual that is giving back within his community. Showing compassion towards others is a very positive character trait that will win you points with women. He also is in tuned with what he’s looking for and goes about sharing that in a sweet and silly way. He’s kept his profile simple but eloquent.
Roses are red, violets are blue….mmm…Attraction Killer #4 smells like poo…YESSSSSS, there is something that needs to be tweaked in this profile to get it in the true level of awesomeness…take the dating profile quiz so the eDatingDoc can dispense the 411…

Excellent, articulate, FUNNY, and witty writers. These guys are all smart and really funny!
But as far as dating profiles go….and yes these are all great profiles…..the above profiles are a bit TOO entertaining. Are these guys “on the go” like this all the time? 24/7 comedy sessions? A mix of seriousness added in would make these profiles perfect!
They don’t have quite the intensity and seriousness that profile written by older, more mature and seasoned men (who most likely have survived divorce, are parents, have lived thru life’s huge hurdles and have some emotional baggage–which is a required for anyone over 30).
Very youthful profiles because, well, these men are young.
These guys have revealed very little about who they are, in a sense. But we do know two things about them…they are wonderful writers with a rich sense of humor and if were looking for a guy to date in this age group, I’d pick one of them! I bet they would be worth meeting!
I know the post was a bit long because of the examples so I
think you may have skipped several awesome profiles. These profiles
range from #2 very masculine to #5 romantic (& super detailed) to yes, #9 funny.
You say these profiles reveal very little about themselves. I see a bit of
mystery as a good thing, no a great thing. What more do you think they should reveal?
i like to know as much as i can about a person…kind of full disclosue…because if that’s who the person is, and you get involved, you’re going to know anyway, so better to know up front. and i like to divulge, in okcupid’s questions section, as much as i can about myself (sometimes with comments to elaborate, sometimes w/humor or sarcasm, to have a voice). thus full disclosure of both helps you hone in on qualities you like and deal breakers you don’t.
Ok Laurie, but you’re skipping over the fact that you can’t REALLY know anyone until you meet them. The more they disclose, the more you THINK you know about them. But you could meet them and find out they’re completely different than their profile suggests (ie they seem witty and sharp on their profile, but are really boring in person).
Sounds like you’re the type of person who wishes to know more so you have reasons to judge more.
You also seem to be implying that if a guy is a serial killer or a bank robber that he is going to list it in his profile.
Just go on a date, get some drinks and get to know each other.
Guys know women are extremely judgemental creatures and will judge everything and anything about a guys profile.
We keep ourselves a mystery partly because women like that and partly because we are afraid we might say something about ourselves that will make a woman judge us and never even wish to meet us.
One caveat to this though Dustin is that too many guys are complete pushover pleasers and are scared to mention even the main things they find most important for fear of running off a girl.
When I stopped trying to please everyone and learned to communicate my main needs without worrying about who I was going to push away, I started attracting the type of women that I really fit with.
Another issue with playing it safe and trying to cast a wide net is that you force the girl to switch her screening process over to depend more heavily on superficial things like looks, height etc. because so many guys have generic profiles that it can’t be used to tell much of anything at all about the guy.
I definitely agree with you to keep things mysterious but think getting some core things down are better than being super generic.
As far as OKCupid goes, guys are much better off answering only really important matching questions because it’s unlikely that women will rate things like “Must like cupcakes” and less central things as very important, so having the wrong answer can only hurt us in the matching algorithm. Not sure how other dating sites do it though.
Dustin and Mike are spot on. It’s easy to put our foot in our mouths and say the wrong thing regardless of how many right things we say. Best to keep things brief.
Agree Adam. If it’s a question you could care less about, don’t answer it.
Great profiles! I find most men on match to have redundant and boring profiles, which may or or may not be an indicator of what they will be like in person. Which site are these guys on? Lol and why did you remove the 2 top secret profiles?
Howdy Sara. Most men DO have boring profiles. We searched 100’s of profiles for a week to find these 10 and even these can be improved!
What happened to the Top Secret profiles? I added them to The eDatingDoc Academy, I’m using those two for profile teaching purposes.
and what about attracting physically attractive but also intellectual types?
80% of americans haven’t read a book since high-school and most people just don’t like intelligent people from jealousy or from just not being able to communicate.
Why is it, the people who should be breeding aren’t allowed to have a mate.
I find the opposite is true Tony. Women are very attracted to intelligence. What makes you think that?
There are many types of intelligence. If you continually experience backlash because of your “intelligence” then there’s a 100% likelihood that you have some work to do with your social/emotional intelligence. I promise, people don’t have a problem with you because you were so brilliant, compassionate, understanding, confident and helpful.
When you experience this “not liking you because you’re so smart”, ask yourself a few questions:
Was I putting this person’s ideas down?
Did I make them feel stupid with my lack of tactfulness?
Do I act smug all the time because I’m so smart?
Find the REAL reason and you’ll probably find you can work on your social & emotional intelligence.
You said, all the intro’s of these profiles a wrong. Can you give some tips or examples, how to have a good profile intro?
Howdy Marcel – I added a ton of new examples to the Academy Course. I have to keep some things for the Academy Members.
I posted two profiles with virtually identical, non-descript headlines, listing all the things that had happened to me online (turned into quite a psycho-rant before it was axed!) , one had my real picture (a late 40s male, smart picture) and one a 40+ fashion pic pulled off the web modelling hairstyles. Whilst I got some comments with my own picture complaining how harsh I was being…. the other received 40+ emails the first weekend I posted (some from girls who would have been nailed on vogue models themselves!)……with no pre-browsing beforehand!
Frankly……. with online dating its 101% in the picture and if your face don’t fit then you can write what you like and if it does fit you can equally write what you like because I proved it in real time…..PERIOD!
So your saying a male model got more emails than you did with the same profile. Uhhh – Not sure what you proved there other than male models attract women……. nothing new.
It TOTALLY matters what you write & the photos you use & the emails you send. You seem really bothered by your online dating results (psyco-rant and all) I bet you have a ton of mistakes in your profile & photos that are hurting your results. (I’ll prove it)
How about I do a free in-depth video profile critique for you as long as I can show it on my site.
It’s usually $87.00 but like I said I’ll do it for you for free.
UPDATE: Marcus wasn’t down for the challenge. I tried to help him but no dice.
So EDoc did you ever find that special girl or are you still looking?
Still looking Joyce…. Learning a lot as I’m looking though.
I loved this article!! Now, can you create the same but for women?? Pretty please wish sugar on top??
Thank god for your site.
First, I’m a 54 year old woman seeking a man. Second, I’ve been on dating sites for only 10 days and already want to cry and cry due to meager, pitiful profiles and some frankly scary pictures. Then, yesterday, I read this really great profile. Cute guy and everything. Finally. But I should have known by the flawless punctuation it couldn’t be real. I did a one-sentence copy/paste into google and boom, busted the guy for plagiarism.
1) Guys definitely need your help.
2) It was great to read a smart, funny profile.
3) But to be perfectly honest, it’s a little disheartening to find the smart/funny setup wasn’t the cute guy at all. Bummer.
Hey Nancy – It’s funny because while these profiles are good, they have been copied THOUSANDS of times. I single handedly made the “Anchorman” the most quoted movie of all time on okCupid because so many guys copied the #2 profile with the “Anchorman” quote in it. If you search okCupid you’ll see thousands of guys that just copied these profiles word for word and they wonder why they don’t work. lol
Cute guys can’t have flawless punctuation? I must be breaking the mold.
Definitely need to use flawless punctuation Bob…
I’ve already had a little more success. Not really any responses but much more interest. Maybe I could get some pointers and advice I’d greatly appreciate it. You can use my profile as an example as long as my information isn’t displayed. Again thank you for your advice. Online dating is very intimidating but a useful tool especially when someone like myself find it difficult to say these things in person but much easier and more relaxing with a little buffer. Much appreciated!! Your hard work surely has paid off.
I sent you an email Aaron. Also check out the eDatingDoc Academy or my free profile analyzation tool: https://www.edatingdoc.com/profile-tool/
Dear Radio, You are hilarious! Thanks for stepping up to your true calling. I can’t wait to read more. I agree with Nancy … “The men pool online is shallow” especially for young, attractive women 50yrs and up. Thank you and I’ll be talkin’ you up! BTW – Is that a hint of Texan in your voice?
Thanks Dee – Nah, I’m originally from Mississippi so a bit of a southern accent comes out every now and then… especially after a couple drinks.
So you’re the one to blame for all the Anchorman references. That must rank as even more irritating than the oft quoted Marilyn Monroe ‘if you can’t handle me at my worst…blah blah’ quote. God, I just want to pour acid in my eyes every time i see it….
Shit Rob! I didn’t think so many guys would just straight up plagiarize these profiles. It’s kinda funny. They are the ones in the dead center of the Mediocrity Bell Curve.
I can understand how some of these profiles worked and also tell its for the men in there thirties and up what about guys that are younger in college and in their twenties? As a guy I felt my profile was different and creative but I still need more tweaked on it. Advice?
Let me know if screaming it in this comment section worked. ??
I’ve seen so many male profile accounts on different dating websites, are you creating this for them? A lot of them are very similar.
That’s because so many guys are just straight up plagiarizing these profiles. It’s kinda funny. They are the ones in the dead center of the Mediocrity Bell Curve.
Its hard these days to see a man who listens, cares, and keep to promises.I wish i had someone to share some of my life experiences with..
I’ve seen more women have good men then not care or want to understand what his needs are and meet those needs than the other way around.
If you are a women that tries to find out what the guys needs and you’re pleasant to be around then you’re rare.
But I understand it’s hard to find a guy that will reciprocate.
You hit the nail on the head…I am finding it very difficult to find a man that will reciprocate. I love men. I want one man in my life for all of those crazy, fun, important reasons. I have had no luck with a man wanting to give as much as he gets.
Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for all the advice here. It was a pleasure to read. A friend of mine has been struggling with his profile, and was convinced that he was the reason he wasn’t getting much interest. I’m never for tricking anyone, but I told him online dating is as much about advertising oneself as advertising a product, you have to be thoughtful with what you choose to put out there and how you represent yourself. We’re working on a profile together now, mostly cause I insisted he let me try to help before closing his down for good.
I am curious, do you find that these slightly longer profile bios work better than a short one? Lots of people say shorter is better, but as a girl looking at one, I want more than just a picture, personally.
