Dating Chronicles: The Short Profile

Okay, I have a hard time trying to figure out what to say on a dating profile. Let’s be real. Men don’t want to read more than 3 sentences and then they probably don’t read them all anyway. That sucks.

How do I let you know what I’m looking for and requiring if I don’t take the time to outline it in my profile? I don’t want to waste your time and I definitely don’t want to waste mine. So, I launched my profile again and decided to go with the short and sweet approach:

About Me

I’ve been doing this on-line dating thing for over a year now with no luck. But, I’m an eternal optimist that believes I will find someone who “gets me”. So, I’m trying again.

I would describe myself as smart, honest, hardworking and an ambitious career woman. I like to laugh, I love good humor, reading and attending concerts. There are so many things to say, but I guess if you’re interested you will need to contact me.

However, I’ve found that even that profile will lead to a lot of undesirables contacting me. What do I mean by undesirable? Men who indicate the following:

  • You don’t have a car. Really? Next
  • You don’t have a job. Why? Never mind. Next
  • You refer to me a “sexy a**” after two exchanges. For real? Next.
  • You try to run “game” like I’m not smarter than a 5th grader. I’m not stupid. Next, please

Ugh! I will go back to the drawing board with a disclaimer that reads:

***Don’t contact me if you don’t have yourself together. ***

You should know what that means at your age. If you are wondering, then I suggest you don’t contact me because you probably don’t have yourself together.

Yes, it’s cold-blooded but it’s life.TLC sang “No Scrubs” and as a 40-year-old woman entering the dating field again, I have to agree.
