    Ladies: What's the biggest turnoff in a guy's online dating profile or his social network page?

    I know it's hard to pick just a few no-no's, but I think there are some guys who realize they simply don't know what it takes to attract a lady that they want to be with long-term.  Let's be nice and open them up to how we view some of their efforts that come off the wrong way.

    I'll begin with a simple one: I like to see a few pictures of a guy in different settings, but narcissistic overload and pictures via the mirror or a turnoff.  It says he is self-absorbed as well as unable to find a friend to take his snapshot. A guy's naked body also says, he doesn't know what's important to women.

    (and forgive my mis-grammar: "pictures via the mirror "are" a turn off").

    I would say bragging. Showing off shows insecurity or something to hide. I don't care what your muscles look like greased up. I don't care what kind of car you drive. I hate a lot of cursing on social pages. My kids get into these and half my family are devout Christians. I like to see the guy has a sense of humor. But I hate seeing someone insulted on Facebook. I like to see a guy enjoying life.

    Anything showing a naked torso definitely tells me that he's trying to present himself as a piece of meat -- and trying to find someone that just wants to get laid (with the possible exception of, say, a pic of him with a bunch of friends having a day at the lake or the beach). I hate seeing bad spelling and grammar (a few mistakes are okay, but orcish tells me that we're not going to be able to have mentally stimulating interactions), profanity, and hobbies that include video games and drinking.
