    Default Check out my OKcupid profile

    OK. Looking for honest opinions about my OKCupid profile. Here it is:

    My self summary:

    Just leave me alone. Oh wait, didn't Michael Jackson say that? Not sure but could be I'm not much of a fan. I guess I should be since he's dead but then I guess it doesn't really matter anyway. Want to know about me? Ask. Or better yet call me. But no booty calls. I want to be respected as a whole person not just a piece of meat.


    What I'm doing with my life:

    Ok. I won't over think it. On a good day I teach monkeys how to rollerblade. When I'm not doing that I teach dragons how to have better breath, puppies how to break dance....you get the picture. Ok seriously......oh wait that would imply I take this seriously..Ok. I won't over think it. On a good day I teach monkeys how to rollerblade.

    I'm really good at: Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

    Getting on people's nerves. Sometimes I don't even have to try.

    The first things people usually notice about me:

    My height even though I wouldn't say I'm freakishly tall. In fact if anything I'm shrinking. I also shave my head. The tougher I look the less likely it is people will try to steal my star wars action figures or my skittles.



    Help your potential matches find common interests.

    Favorite books, movies, show, music, food:

    I spend a lot of time thinking about Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

    My wallet. Too bad there's nothing in it. Oh don't worry that just means I keep all my money in the bank. Don't worry I'll buy you a happy meal. I'll get you a Ferrari too don't worry. In fact I have it right here in my closet with all my other toys. I think I said don't worry too much here. Don't worry I don't usually tell people not to worry. No worries.

    On a typical Friday night I am Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

    Burnt out from all the messages and selfies women send me. You know some of you really should get that checked out.

    You should message me if Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

    If you are an independent woman or at least don't live in your daddy's garage. If you do I'll just assume you are working on his cars in which case it's cool because I like cars. Yes I do have one. Don't worry our first date won't be me picking you up on my bike with the banana seat.




    That's all for now. I really believe I should change the "my self summary" part. I like most of everything else I said.

    Default Re: Check out my OKcupid profile

    I see what you're doing, and cocky-funny is a good thing in a profile...but this is literally filled to overflowing, and dripping around all the edges with it. You need to back it up just a bit and (in my opinion) get a bit serious here and there.

    I don't mean serious in the "College is almost done and I've got my career in blah blah blah all figured out soon." That's cut and dry, not interesting, and not advised for obvious reasons. But you can still come across light-hearted and "not caring" about the online thing while providing real details about yourself.

    A for-instance is on my POF profile under the "First Date" section I put something to the effect of "I'm a simple guy, and would enjoy anything active, but a 30 minute meet up for lunch is fine too." Like, clearly that's not me taking the thing too serious but it's also me being, like, real, you know? My entire "About Me" is extremely light-hearted and cocky-funny though.

    I promise, though, that 99% of the girls you message will laugh at first, giggle a bit, then say "Seriously? He's STILL going on?" and promptly hit "back" on their browser.

    I like your "Friday Night", "Message Me", and your "First Thing People Notice" sections a lot. The rest is either too much or simply awkward.

    Your About Me is the most important one to get right, because it's both the first thing they read and the most relevant one they read. So fixing it up to be interesting and informative is probably your #1 priority. You don't need to exude "IDGAF about this site cuz I'm a BAMF" so much either. Obviously if you didn't care about it you wouldn't be using it, and it comes off fake and childish.

    Consider something like this:

    "Just leave me alone.

    ...-Michael Jackson, 1996. :P

    Naw seriously, if you want to know more about me let's talk. But no booty calls...[the rest of that part + anything else you want to add]."

    Opening it like that is more, I think, what you were originally going for. Sort of an instant shock factor when they open your profile, like "Wait wtf?" And reading it like that you get rid of the excessive Fluff of explanation and move along to other things.

    Hope this helped.

    That helped a little bit. I already changed my opening self summary to what I have on my POF profile plus a little extra. I'll post it later.

    It's still hard for me to figure out when to be goofy(C&F)and when to be serious. I guess it's an art form that will take some practice.

    Ok. Here's what I have in my about me section(self summary) for OK Cupid:


    I've always had a love hate relationship with vegetables. When I was about six years old I wrestled a turnip. Big deal you say. Well it was a giant turnip. Then along came a cauliflower. Then broccoli. Then a few years later a giant tomato came after me. However, I was prepared this time with a kitchen knife in one hand and a fork in the other. I've eaten my veggies ever since. These days they don't give me a hard time. Fruit on the other hand is another story. I sometimes have issues with strawberries, peaches, pineapple etc.

    Want to know about me? Ask. Or better yet call me. But no booty calls. I want to be respected as a whole person not just a piece of meat.


    I actually have started to correspond with someone on OKCupid. The thing is I made the mistake of giving her my number instead of asking for hers(when she asked for mine)and now I just asked for hers but she seemed to have ignored my request in her last message back to me. Hmmmm. So I might just say something to her that implies she gave it to me like "ok, just let me know when is a good time to call" or that plus "oh, wait you still haven't given me your number. What am I going to do with you? "Lol. So I still haven't figured out when I'm going to reply back to her or what I'm going to say. Any expert advice would be appreciated.

    Sounds too much like you're trying to be cocky-funny, trying to impress them with how much you don't care.

    Well isn't that better than a profile that shows how much I'm trying to impress them and one that is taking it too seriously?

    I suppose maybe I just haven't striked the balance yet between the two. However, I think it's better to act kind of indifferent than do what most of the other guys are doing which basically say "oh like me like me. Please like me!"
