Red flag warning to men:

list edited for brevity


hell even my form letters are better than that....

my favorite from women that almost always make me hit the delete button

"Hi ur cute hit me up l8r" - Glad you think I'm cute, but I'm looking for something a little more intellectually stimulating than an instant message session via email.

I am surprised this site uses winks since it's free to send emails. I guess it's a way for the really shy to start a conversation.

I'm turned off when an ad says "likes to cuddle",

or.... "I look and act younger than my years" and it's from a guy who is 40 and looks 80.

Another turn-off for me is "I like to pamper women". The guys who say this are usually the most self-centered fuddy-duddys around. They are the ones who want to be pampered themselves.

Wow! Looks like I need to read some profiles! I hadn't even started to bother with that. Too boring, when I'm only interested in the forums.

I always roll my eyes at profiles of someone who says they "love to laugh" and their photo looks like theyr'e trying to pass a kidney stone.

Or men who ramble on about how sensitive they are (thinking this is a good way to catch a chick I guess?), but after one IM it's apparent they have the sensitivity of a lima bean.

I have gotten letters from men who, in their "ideal mate" section describe someone so far from me as to be almost another species. I usually just make a note of that in my return "thanks but no thanks" letter. Yeah, we all have our "idea of ideal" but, most of us are too realistic to spell it out in such detail. How could anyone live up to what some of you say you want? Give me a guy who says AND MEANS IT that "personality, intelligence, wit and integrity are more important than appearance." Yeah, we all want someone who makes our putter flutter, but most of us have reached an age where we realize that the most attractive people in our lives are not necessarily classically handsome or beautiful, but are truly beautiful people to us because of who they are. Not what they look like.

I also find it amusing when a guy describes himself as "My friends say I'm _________." I don't care what his friends say, I wanna know what his enemies say. A guy's friends will say anything to help him get laid after all!

Equally funny is "I've been told I'm ____________." That also may not hold much weight, as I've been told I'm beautiful. But, that was by some guy wanting to get laid, so....

Here's a few red flags that get me running:

I've been through so much in my life and BLAH BLAH BLAH COMPLAIN COMPLAIN COMPLAIN.

Looking for Mr. Right (this Mr. Right guy must pull in sooo much tail )

Everyone else is OK in my book

Marriage, Long term relationship, On line chat
.

So she is seeking Marriage? As in possibly "needy"?*

If she is seeking a long term relationship "friend with benefits".... Why not simply say so.

On line chat...What, no cell phone? Why type when you are able to talk or meet in person. Why would anyone desire to type or talk for that matter if they aren't going to meet? What is the point?

*Maybe I've been single way to long but seeking marriage? Why not just "seeking a great time"? Most of us that are long time single/divorced if the right one happens to come along won't we know it? That option is always open....Dah.

Until that time in the very distant future it's pure enjoyment, adventures and fun without the drama.

Prefering to be in a "Married Relationship" with the right person.....in no way makes them "needy".....unlike those running all over the place......looking for places to "dip their wick"........they are always "needing" MORE and DIFFERENT......just my thoughts....

This is not so much a red flag as it is an annoyance:

"I have x kids and they are the most important part of my life."

OR

"My kids come first."

Ok, please don't take this the wrong way because I have kids and they're the most important part of my universe, too. But unless you're the poster child for the Unfit Parent Alliance, you really don't have to say this. People already know it.

If you feel the need to say it, a much better of way of doing it would go something like this:

"My children are the most important people in the world to me. But I will gladly make the time to spend with you."

You get the message across while also letting the prospective lover know that there's room in your life for him/her.

When someone says they are looking for "whatever works", sounds
to me like when they are through playin they can just say " it isn't
working" and move on. Nothing special there.

The ones who say "no games" ...they are the first ones to play games with you.

THE ONES WHO HAVE A PHOTO OF THEMSELVES IN FRONT OF THEIR CAR! Laaaaaaaaame!

Men who go on about all the exercise they do. I care about the nice dates you take me on, if you are a good kisser, heck, I care if you will do dishes! BUT WHY THE HELL WOULD I CARE HOW MANY MILES YOU CAN BIKE??? AND YOU LOOK GAY IN BIKE SHORTS!

Absolutely. This is very annoying. Only a moron would need to have this in print. Perhaps they are thinking that they will be more attractive by showing what a good parent they are. It's ridiculous. The ones that talk about it are usually the ones that get visits from Children's Aid. (Oh, now the hate letters will come, lol!)

From my very sheltered life I must say "I did not know there were so many skeptics and perverts in the personals".

Seems I need to go read my profile and make sure I am not guilty of such grave errors. How anyone can read so much into the written word never ceases to amaze me. Maybe you should try reading it from a more positive prespective. (And maybe I will change my mind once I have been out here longer.)

I do hate the ones who constantly bash 'game players'. I play softball, does that count?
