about profiles..just a thought

I like to read profiles. I think profiles are very important. Besides a picture (which most here won't even bother with, and I'll save that subject for another entry), there is not a lot to go by when trying to find out what someone is like..I find it rather annoying when someone contacts me with a profile like that. They usually won't send a pic with the query, either..but I digress.

I am constantly 'tuning' my AdultFriendFinder profile to reflect my current self..but I noticed a funny trend emerging as I read through a lot of the profiles here at AdultFriendFinder:

It really looks like too many folks are just copy/pasting little bits and peices from other profiles that seem to suit them at the time.. this is all well and good, I suppose, if it works for them. But I have found that it leaves very little to my imagination as I read up on them. Everyone begins to look the same. Samey and boring. So it gets harder and harder to see a new member as an individual and find out who they really think they are and what they really want out of AdultFriendFinder, or even me specifically.

I'll just list some of these hackneyed phrases below, along with a little sematic remark or two, so you can see what I am referring to.

-------------------------------

"I thaw fairly quickly once I get to know you."

Hmm. Well this is a bit of a turn off because it seems to be telling me that I have to spill my guts to a cold, frozen person and then AFTER that person knows me well enough they will "thaw out" for me. At which point I will to finally get permission to know them. So I have a suggestion.
Why don't these cold people go thaw somewhere else first (Miami Beach is nice), then contact me. That way I can leave the sweater at home.

"I am open minded"

Mm, yes. That is original. Yep, right. After all, everyone on this site is SO damn closed minded Why even bother mentioning that one?

-------------------------------

I've noticed that the folks that frequent the chatrooms have absolutely the poorest profiles of all the patrons here. They inconsiderately say NOTHING about themselves. Many of these profiles look like they were composed in complete haste and disregard in a rush to get a profile up and join a chat room. And yes, (I know you want to have sex, who doesn't?) chatting about those basic things is great, but those certain perfunctory things - I don't want to repeatedly ask folks in a chat. Put them in your profile instead, because having to ask what they are just gets really redundant, and it keeps us from getting to the interesting things that make us all different.

One person from Brazil just copied some text from a website touting his countries business statistics. This sucks, and I generally give someone problems when they begin to ask me for meetings, pictures and other things. I just don't think it's very fair.

"I'm willing to explore"

See the above entry entitled "I am openminded"
After all, doen't EVERYone come here to explore?

Keep checking back for more. I will update this frequently.
