Red flags online dating profiles
We group swiped on a big screen, and the pickings were slim. One of the biggest red flags Resnick sees is what he calls "the sales pitch."The sales pitch is when a guy lists his best "assets" in the "about me" section of his dating profile as if he's a product that you might be buying."You see so many guys just listing a set of qualities that they think they are supposed to have to get the most responses," says Resnick.I'm pretty sure all of those curious couples in attendance are going to hold onto each other for dear life now. Other times, it takes some real digging around on his dating profile to know that there's nothing promising about it. "They end up sounding more like a used car: 'I'm active, smart, funny, loyal, honest, caring, have ice-cold AC, and leather bucket seats.'"Imagine if I sat down on a date and was like, "Hey, I'm cool, a little neurotic, but have a kind heart, an IUD, and no nutty ex-boyfriends." I would deserve a hard pass.It’s because men are already frustrated with the chronic flaking that they have been experiencing when meeting women who are not even all that busy.
"Many men are bad at online dating, but not necessarily bad guys."So basically, the biggest red flags are going to be obvious.Are they constantly arguing with others on the Forums? During this past year, as I was helping guys with their online dating efforts, I noticed how many of them are turned off by the same words that they see in women’s dating profiles over and over, especially here, in the San Francisco Bay Area."It makes it sound like you think no one would like you without having to be convinced. It will resonate with the right people."Makes sense to me. Obviously, it denotes a shallow-minded person, but it also tells me that this guy has a weirdly high opinion of his own looks or is deeply insecure.
Resnick added, First of all, everyone is looking for someone they find attractive.All of these red flags in women’s dating profiles seem to have one thing in common – they suggest in so many ways that the women who write them will be really hard to actually get a hold of and meet, let alone develop any kind of meaningful relationship by being able to see them regularly.
