My favorites are the ones with user names that are so unappealing, you don’t need to click on their profile to find out why they are single (toohot4u and boobietrap spring to mind.) Not surprisingly, I tried to convert her to the wonderful shallow world of Tinder, because at least it’ll take you 18 text exchanges to figure out that “Doug, 28″ thinks he’s toohot4u.
A perfect case in point that sometimes when it comes to revealing yourself in an online dating profile comes from this Casanova: A guy who has the longest list of “dating deal breakers” ever to be contrived.
"Seriously, if he can make me laugh and is confident, he's in. Take any other physical characteristic -- weight, hair color, size of...
certain body parts -- and casually listing it as a non-negotiable dating requirement would strike the average person as at least kind of shallow and crass, if not offensively discriminatory.
I know this, because last night my roommate (who is on Match.com), showed me the numerous profiles she’s matched with online.
Some guys sound like completely obnoxious pretentious twats in their profiles, while others don’t know how to wear a picture without wearing sunglasses.

If you’re married yourself, then, seriously, you are on a direct flight to wreck-your-life-ville). Nothing says “pretentious asshole” like joining a Jorge Luis Borges reading group under the age of 24. These are the types of guys who read Maxim and don’t understand irony.

I once went out on a blind date (BTW, hardly ever a good idea)with a dude who turned out to have, for lack of a better description, seriously large donkey-like ears and teeth that looked like little pieces of coal. I know, though, I would have been doing a disservice to another girl out there who likes that sort of thing, had I just gone along with it. Had he been more attractive personality-wise, perhaps I would’ve been more able to overlook those things.
