Embarrassed about online dating
Answer this question like a jackass and you’re going to stay single. Never leave the house without your journal or a switchblade?
If you don’t have one, then I can tell you why you’re single. Even an answer of “the souls of the innocent” is better than listing blood, air, food, water.
Share your internet dating adventures with a friend, and if they’re single get them to join your search for love online. Remember you’re joining a pretty big club of over 5 million people – you’re not alone!
After all, it’s great to have someone to share the good (and bad! It’s just another way to meet new people – nothing to be embarrassed about. We recommend you spend at least a couple of hours filling this out – trust us, it’ll save you a lot more time in the long run.
You know how annoying it is to fill out a job application and list all the info you have in the resume you brought? Let your profile be your resume, not your job application. The question is obviously asking what you do for a living and what your big goals in life are.
DO NOT write “I’ll fill this out later.” There is no later. Are you a teacher, bartender, sales clerk, mortician?
If you’re looking for something that fast there are some hookers on Santa Monica Blvd. DO NOT start out with “I never know what to write here”, or “I don’t know what to say about myself”. If you don’t know anything about yourself or what you’re like, I can tell you why you’re single.
If you don’t have one, then that solves the mystery as to why you’re single. That’s what those questions are doing — asking you. Are you working that 9–5 office job and writing your Stand By Me fan fiction screenplay at night?
Say something interesting, even if you don’t want to share anything too personal.
If you’re an open book, you might be willing to admit that you wet your bed until you were 15 or that you want to nail your first cousin. DO NOT write, “Message me if you like what you’ve read.” We get that. Quote a movie, leave a recipe for bundt cake, leave your hat size.
You’ll need time – time to fill out your profile, to read member profiles, and to communicate with other members.
But, the more you put in, the more you’ll get out of the process.
