Equal opportunity annoyer

Dating profiles are ridiculous! Come to think of it, I don’t know that I have ever met a guy online that matches up to the profile he has so carefully thought about and (stolen) written from his heart. For this reason, I try my best to be as honest as possible when writing my profile. I post recent pictures and keep it short, because we all know men have the attention span of a first grader when it comes to reading these things.

Although, if I were being honest with you, I would tell you that I also have the attention span of a first grader when it comes to reading dating profiles. I don’t want to hear about how honest, open, loving and romantic you are. Quite frankly, I want you to show me…actions speak louder than words.

Being dishonest and babbling on and on about how awesome you are only sets you up for dating disaster. As an example, when I meet someone who says he is “athletic and toned” quite frankly, I expect that he will currently be athletic and toned and not be describing who he was in his high school hay day.

It’s so frustrating.

I don’t understand why men (and I’m sure women) do this. This is why I am adamant about posting very current pictures and list myself as average. I know I’m not super physically fit, but I’m not overweight either. I’m just average! I’ve had a couple of kids…

On a particular dating website that I am a member of there is a section listed “About my date”. In this section the men/women are supposed to answer the particular question about the women/men they are looking for.

I can’t tell you how many times I come across this exact list of what men in my area are looking for:

Hair: Blonde, dark blonde
Eyes: Blue
Height: 5’0-5’5
Body Type: Athletic & toned, curvey
Language: English
Ethnicity: White/Caucasion
Education: Graduate Degree, PhD/Post Doctorate
Job: Executive, Financial, Legal, Medical/Dental
Income: 150,000+

Seriously, this is what most men in my search criteria are looking for. I’m not joking! Apparently these “players” are looking for a sugar momma. Well good luck, I hope you have ugly, short kids, that go nowhere in life.

It’s frustrating!

All I ask is that the men be realistic in their search for a woman. Because quite honestly…

Athletic & toned

Plus a Graduate Degree, PhD/Post Doctorate degree

Plus income earnings over $150,00 a year

DO NOT, let me repeat…DO NOT = YOU

I’m just saying, let’s be honest from the get go!


  1. I am tweeting this because it is SO true!


  3. Haha, love it. I've got a post in my backlog about dating website people showing up completely different than they sent to you, as if you'll have no clue and be so pleasantly surprised at how charming they are in person that you completely forget about the fact that they're 80 lbs heavier or unemployed.

  4. OMG, too funny. I did a little bit of this before I married my husband. It was quite an experience! Do these guys not think ahead to the point at which they will actually meet you in person and you'll see what they look like? Isn't that the ultimate goal?
    I did meet my current hubby online, but not from a dating site. So don't give up (yet)! LOL

  5. This has got to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen... sad but true! Oh, and for the record, women lie on dating profiles too - all the time!

    One more thing, you say it like someone looking for a sugar momma is a bad thing. Ha ha! ;)
