Question for Girls of OKC - What are the common/reoccurring things you see on men's profiles? (self.OkCupid)

When I browse OKC I see a lot of profiles that say things like Message me if you are a good man. You are sweet caring have a sense of humor ... etc.

I often look at these things and ignore them as they add nothing to this profile to differentiate from all the other profiles I've looked at.. making you less likely to get a message from me. (whether or not you'd want that is a different story! :) )

What are things that you see all the time in profiles that "turn you off" or just make you ignore a guys profile? What are some things that aren't original?

Read some straight dudes' profiles in your area. You won't catch the gay from doing so. You'll pick up the cliches real quick.

Nothing wrong with a tasteful fedora! Better than a damn baseball cap, imho...

For real, I've never known anyone who wasn't a total douche to wear a baseball cap in everyday life. They have their uses but fashion is not one of them. For that reason, the douche factor increases by an order of magnitude when it's turned backwards.

Wearing a fedora is like carrying a sign that says "I'm trying way too hard."

Fedoras are like wearing socks with sandals for your head.

I'm a musician... musicians look awesome in anything.

Exhibit A: http://www.alanmesser.com/FAB%20folder/JOHN%20LENNON%A9MESSER5.23.68.jpg

My type is artists and burners and hippies and the like... the more outrageous the fashion, the better.

If you took away the name on that photo and posted it on OKC, I would think it was some douchebag trying too hard.

Given what we know about John Lennon, that IS a douchebag trying too hard.

Nope. Put me in there with a fedora and slap my name on it and it's a picture of me being awesome. My confidence goes way further than your fashion sense. ;)

So thinks every douchebag fedora-wearer.

But g'luck anyway, doesn't bother me frankly what my competition is doing to shoot itself in the foot or otherwise.

LOL! Competition?! We're most certainly not competing over the same demographic. You can have the boring ones who color between the lines...

Dude, why are you picking a fight on the internet?

Whatever man, wear your fedora proudly.

Keep telling yourself that buddy. One day you'll be John Lennon if you believe.

well you sure as hell don't become anything getting up there looking like everyone else in the world... plus I like to filter anyone who over-subscribes to fashion do's and don'ts. Fuck that shit. Be you. I'll be me and find my crazy hula-hoopin harp-playing lady and we can live weirdly ever after. :D

No. B&W photos look awesome pretty much always.
