What kinds of profiles attract you?

It's 3:30 am here; I came home yesterday from work around 4:30 pm, grabbed a diet coke, checked my email, and suddenly a wave of insomnia hit me. Soo..I went to lay down and before I knew it, my short planned 1 hr nap turned into a 9 1/2 hour sleep fest..so here I am now, wide awake, (I have to be up in a couple of hours anyway), and as I'm browsing through profiles, it hits me that some of these really turn me off. I don't mean by profiles with unattractive people..I'm talking about what they write in them. The worst ones of course, are the ones written with the AdultFriendFinder Resume Helper...now, I don't know about you, but I can get better results plagiarising a Dr. Seuss book and putting that crap in a profile than what this "resume helper" stuff does. The other ones that bother me are the ones that come charging out of the gates, writing hateful and negative stuff about people they haven't even met yet; profiles where already you feel like you're on the defensive; when I read someones profile I want to be able to read what that person is trying to tell me about THEM that is going to ATTRACT me to that individual..after all isn't the purpose of the profile to "sell" yourself to someone? NOO. I don't mean PIMP onesself out, to the contrary (although if that's your interest, there are plenty of BOT profiles on here that I'm sure can cater to that kind of shit). I just want to be able to look at profiles, and feel like that person is telling me all the POSITIVE things about them that I'm going to like. Ramblings like "GO AWAY MEN, IM NOT INTERESTED, NO FATTYS< NO OLDIES, NO GEEKS, FREAKS, LIARS, CHEATERS, PLAYERS, ETC. ETC. ETC.".

Another kind of profile I really don't feel investing my time in is the profile where the person feels like they have to point out all their flaws. Here's one I read a while back..
"Im 37, dark hair, green eyes, 220 lbs, I'm probably too fat for you, and even though I'm thinking of working on that, I'm probably not someone your interested in..."...OK.whats the problem here? Does this person feel like they need to hammer themselves so they can be justified in concluding why people decide not to show any interest in them? Unfortunately It probably points to a deeper issue, but ultimately doesn't the real problem point to one's self esteem problem, which SHOULDN't be forced on others? If I'm turned off after reading that, its not because you said your FAT...it was the tone, the negativity, the lack of self confidence in those first two or three sentences....

But..**sigh** I guess why there's plenty to look at and eventually there will be those who stand out in my book, those good enough for me to feel like it's worth the effort to make contact, send a wink, or even add to my hot list.

You are so right about profiles....Ive run into the same shit.Or you get the ones that totally say everything about there selves and there nothing like it.But you never know what a person will be like till you spend some time with them also.....
