Others had gross pics of them with their possible girlfriend. One even had a picture of him getting a lap dance!!!
Let me also note, that I was doing online dating to meet someone. I was not on there for friendship or one night stands.
I've seen the same things with my buddies you'd think it was two different people's profiles you were looking at. The only thing you need to realize is you've got to communicate the RIGHT kind of quirkiness.
I had a buddy who wrote a bunch of wacky lines that were ALL WRONG.
Finding 2 – Most scores were either very bad or very good. I’ve always known this instinctively but this contest was strong empirical evidence of this. I’ve been talking about this for years and this was yet more evidence, as if you needed any.
That is, when a woman reads your profile, she’s most likely going to really hate it or really like it. Finding 3 – Generally speaking, the older the woman was, the tougher she was on the profiles. The older women in the study were definitely tougher on the profiles.
The ring is the result of my trip to Dragon Con last year where I helped a friend with her exhibitor booth as she sold jewelry and those ultra-cool stainless steel rings (photos at the end of this blog post).
UPDATE – This photo is now the primary photo of my Plenty of Fish online dating profile (link in the blog post). Yes, I’ve fired guns in the past – on a gun range – but I am not an owner of such hardware. As well, I have little opinion about the politics surrounding firearms but I do understand the passion that both sides have regarding gun control legislation.
That was the first time I’ve ever held such a weapon and the big smile was the result of the sheer novelty.
You DO want to get a phone number within 2-4 messages with a girl. Plus she becomes aware you either don’t have a lot of experience with online dating, or you don’t have balls/aren’t confident. I mean in terms of showing your quirky fun side, and your lifestyle.
When I get a number I’ll say something like “” This gets me a num 70% of the time. I’ve helped out a couple buddies with their profiles.. But after taking some funny ass pics of themselves wearing eye patches, doing stupid shit for fun or what not..
