People Break Down The Worst Things They've Seen In Online Dating Profiles

Remember when people actually met in public spontaneously and ignited a romantic spark after catching each other's eyes?

Yeah, I don't either.


But there was a time when people did just that. Meet in person. Young romantic hopefuls looking to make a connection would gather at bars or clubs and spend a fair amount of time preparing themselves to look good in the hopes of getting noticed.

Nowadays, people meet online, where how you present yourself in photos and bios is your one-shot deal in getting someone's attention long enough before they swipe left.

Not everyone is good at describing themselves on dating apps.

Redditor Breme_42069 was curious to hear bad but oh-so-good examples of this and asked:

"Online daters, what are some of the most unattractive stuff people put in their bios?"

Arrogance and a higher-than-thou disposition is not for everyone.

​Is That A Threat?

"If you don't speak, I'll unmatch"

"whilst they literally make zero effort to talk to anybody"

"edit: I am ghey and was referring to male + male tinder, but it's news to me that this is a similar thing straight men experience too."

– Jarrrad

Just Cocky

"Don't waste my time"

– SuvenPan

So Demanding

"This long laundry list of requirements in a partner with no mention of what they’re going to be bringing to the relationship."

–Astoriana_

Bad Is Still Bad

"When they announce how bad they are and get away with doing bad stuff as if it's meant to impress us."

People can be more amusing than sexy.

Feigning Ignorance

“I don’t even know why I’m here”

"Bro you made this account."

– superkads

Everyone Everywhere All At Once

"My personal favourite is when you come across multiple profiles with the same profile pic but they are all in different locations. F'ken wizards."

– Grrrr-Argh

Mystery Date

"Their only photo is a group photo, with no indication of which one they are."

– 02K30C1

When The Hiatus Is Over

"This isn't the worst thing in the world but something I'm always bewildered by some variation of."

"hi, I'm back again, hopefully this time it will work out!"

"This isn't conventional social media with followers."

– DeafeningMilk

Some people just require more effort in getting to know–which indicates, they lack personality.

Trite Phrases

“Don’t be boring”

“Just ask”

– RebornHellblade

Instant Nope

"'Just ask' was always an instant no from me. Plenty of other people provide some kind of info to go on, so why would I choose the low effort profile?"

– SkunkyDuck

“What do you do for work?”

“I don’t like talking about work.”

“Where did you grow up?”

“Are you implying I’m not from here?”

“What’s your favorite food?”

“French fries.”

“Ok, I’m trying here and you’re giving me nothing.”

"Edit: talking about 'just ask' profiles here. If someone has more details I will gladly ask them more in depth questions about them."

– Manowaffle

The art of conversation still applies, even with dating online.

Single people seriously looking to meet someone should take the time to creatively express themselves in their bio. That might increase your chances of attracting more interesting users.

Also let your photos speak for themselves. Just make sure it's you in the uploaded pics.

Because no one has time for catfishing.

We all pride ourselves in knowing random bits of trivia.

While "useless knowledge" is the common parlance for these little fun facts we, often randomly, know, that seems an unfair label.

After all, who knows when a subject comes up in conversation, and you might be the only one who can answer a group question.

All thanks to the fact that you know a random piece of knowledge almost no one else on Earth seems to know.

Redditor Just_Free_Tea7 was curious to learn some of these obscure pieces of trivia, leading them to ask:

"What is a fact that you think barely anyone else knows?"

The world is an ever changing place.

In addition to continuing advancements in technology, human behavior also continues to evolve.

As a result, what might have seemed "normal" 50 years ago might seem far-fetched today, while things which we today consider "normal" might never have even crossed the mind of anyone back then.

Making everything we consider "normal" among the many things in this world that continues to evolve at a rapid pace.

Redditor Primary_Berry_3560 was curious to hear what "normal" everyday things were anything but normal fifty years ago, leading them to ask:

"What is normal now but wasn’t normal 50 years ago (1972)?"
