If you're Very Liberal, they're Ultra Conservative, If you love reading books they say "I don't read much." If you love playing video games they say "Playing video games for hours on end is stupid."
WTF?! Yeah, I do pics first then profile. If I"m not attracted to you, then I'm not going to read your profile. If I fid you cute, I'll read it and see if we have stuff in common. Otherwise, no! Don't send me a message that says 'It seems like we have a lot in common' If we have zero in common and you hate all of my interests!!

Oh, the joys of OLD.
Ok, here's one. Today I got an email on OLD. Very nice email. Went to the profile. Great sounding profile. Sounds like a normal guy. Looks like we have common interests. His main pic was not bad. So far so good. Well, then I clicked on the rest of his pics. He apparently is a body builder or something but there were a bunch of shirtless pics at the gym, ab pics, and one really *great* pic from the neck down of him with nothing on except a banana hammock. Ewwwwh! Why would you put this on OLD? Even if he is not full of himself, he is coming off that way. Idk..maybe I'm crazy. I just don't find this attractive. Are there women out there that do I wonder?
I understand your frustration ... but in your post you struck a cord with me as I met my SO on OLD and we are quit the polar opposite. Me being liberal, him being ultra conservative. We may the minority but I love being the opposites as we balance each other, can agree to disagree, and the best thing is we broaden each others view point.
I get your point of the frustration of not reading profiles and making blanket statements of "we would be great together" but in my honest opinion, there is something to say about "polar opposites" it wouldn't hurt to still strike up a conversation ... You never know!
What is up with not being able to spell or have simple correct grammar?? I cringe to think that I would ever respond to someone that has a profile littered with spelling errors.
Needless to say,..... I did not reach out to urinalman!

forgot to mention he had more kids than originally listed
I dated a guy for a couple months. He lived with his parents. He had 4 kids, but they lived with their mom. I was really not sure about that many kids, but, he seemed nice, so, we dated. Eventually, on the way to have dinner with his parents, he mentioned the OTHER 2 kids he had. Then, during dinner, his parents mentioned him going out the weekend before and said something like "I can't believe 'kids mom" was the stripper hired for the party. Are you ever going to get that divorce rolling?"
I told his parents i enjoyed getting to know them, and I had learned quite enough about him. Walked out...had never been so happy in my life I was the one that drove.
I am so glad to be done dating.
It will all be ok in the end. If it's not ok, it's not the end
Happily remarried to a wonderful man (Aussie). I think I found the right guy and the right finger this time.
