Whats up with profiles?

We were browsing the profiles earlier this week... looking for trouble and started to notice some commonalities that we initially attributed to the 'fake' spam trap profiles (you all know the ones we are talking about).... usually the fake ones (we are assuming) are the profiles with too perfect a picture (the ones with spread eagle women that would NEVER sit that way unless some magazine was paying them) or the ones with the three line interest sections and random likes/dislikes and seemingly un-proportionate physical attributes... and of course smokes heavy drinks heavier checked (who would really check those??)... We feel fairly certain they are FAKE....

but then we started seeing the same cheesy catch phrases in profiles...

like... HELLO!I'm an outspoken, courageous women with time to spare... or... I'm not looking to change my life.. just turn up the volume... or my idea of great date is a long drive with no destination (can you please stick two fingers down my throat so I can puke now?)...

SOOO we just assumed this was another of those fake profiles and the spammers had decided to at least try and write something and was just cutting and pasting.... BUT WAIT...

one of those profiles turned out to be a REAL person ... well hell...

so we are now wondering if the cheesy lines are coming from the (hey let a professional help you with your profile button) on the site...

anyone know??

sigh now we have to go back and reread those profiles with the cheesy lines interspersed... who knows.. they might have been a match (with just a bit o writers block)...

I've noticed the same thing and they are real people. Maybe they don't realize that professional doesn't equate to genuine. IMHO, it's better to sound naturally goofy than like something off a resume builder.

I questioned this as well. I was informed by another AdultFriendFinder buddy that this is a result of using the "canned" profile wizard. If they only knew that it was actually detracting from their profile....
