What's the worst online dating profile mistake a person (man or woman) can make?


Online dating is all about selling yourself as a datable human being while (if you're smart) being honest and upfront about who you are. It's no easy task, and I have noticed a few very common mistakes that at least women make (I don't browse male profiles). What are the worst ones you have noticed?

    Oh yes, I have thought the same thing. What's even better is that their profiles will usually say something about how they are looking for someone to respect them. Off to a great start there, genius!

    That's the main mistake, I feel. People try to hard to sell themselves, so naturally everyone with an online dating profile is "fun" "silly" "honest" "a good friend" "deep" "happy" "drama-free" and so on. That's rarely true.
