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 are in a fragile place right now when it comes to bringing children into this world.

Not everybody is meant to be a parent.

In fact, many people should never be one.

So I find it commendable how many of us acknowledge that and chose not to procreate.

Redditorucinangel wanted to everyone to vent about why children are a "no thank you" in their book of life. They asked:

"What is the biggest reasons why you don’t want children?"

The world is full of crazy people.

It feels like that more and more as I meander in my local shopping center.

But a little crazy I can deal with.

I want to discuss the people who leave an imprint of fear.

The people who lack empathy, remorse... and a soul.

You met many of those?

Redditor playmesomethinnice wanted to see who would fess up and discuss the person or persons that leave us shook.They asked:

"What type of people are you scared of?"

There are just some people who need a good, spiteful talking to.

The amount of poor behavior I witness on the daily is astonishing.

How are we like this in these modern times?

Instead of serving shame, we're serving justice for improper deeds.

Be a better human.

Redditor ValenFrost wanted to share what people need a little bit of bad spotlight. They asked:

"What do you think people actually deserve to be shamed for?"
