If you are going to write a internet profile on a dating website here are some tips from me:
-Make if funny
-Make it long enough so it looks like you put a little thought into it, but not too long which signals desperation
-Use conventional spelling and capitalization
-Be yourself, especially if it’s quirky because that’s attractive and endearing
-Don’t use pictures with your ex-girlfriend or unidentified children in them
-There should be more pictures of you then of your pets
Here is an example of a great one that I saw the other day on Craigslist. (I liked to look at the missed connections sometimes)
So you’re still here after clicking to see a pic only to find I bamboozled you…well I promise to make this worth while. I’d love to pass your mental hot or not test but I offer more than just looks…keep reading and I’ll prove it. I’m not exact on what I’m looking for, I think I’d call this a beginning and were we take it is for us to figure out together. I’m not your average craigslister, after all I own a vehicle, no warrants out for me, not a deadbeat…those alone makes me the Craigslist Unicorn don’t you think?

Taylor Swift blaring on my radio…wait was that tmi? I promise to never ever ever mention it again, like ever.
Other interesting proclivities I’ll reserve for later.
Still have your attention or perhaps you’re already smitten correct? At the very minimum I got a smile on your face while you read this, imagine the possibilities if you reply? I’m down to share more info. if you’re interested so I think you know what you need to do…no the other thing you were thinking about, reply with the word “smitten” to make it easy to weed out the spam.
Here is a example of what you don’t want to say (cuz I can’t make this shit up):
