I'll bite and go first.... I like and want to see how they think and to discover their personality through their words. For me, the profiles are basically resumes. I read them. We're marketing ourselves and the initial email contact is the cover letter. There's no one particular thing that has to stand out in their profile besides them.

What gets me to look at a profile in the first place? Some effort on their part to capture my attention...make me want to know more...so definately an interesting, thoughtful or thought provoking email (always), a wink (rarely), or a face pic (rarely) gets my juices flowing and peaks my interest. The brain is the biggest sex organ we have...if you can stimulate that, the rest just falls into place.

Laugh lines; partly because I believe it goes to show personality, and partly because it goes to show they don't believe that a close up shot of their d*** is going to phase me one way or another! *L* Like cookiequeen, I believe that the brain HAS to be 'stimulated' first, before anything else can register anyway; along those lines, their profile should show a sense of humor, and at least an attempt (male-wise? *L*) to tell something about themself.

As for actually reading profiles, *I* do; some of them several times; I don't think most guys (and possibly most females) really read the profiles. Why they don't, I just don't understand; of course, too, a lot of the profiles don't really tell much about the person, about what they're looking for (which I thought was the whole point of having one).
