I always wondered how Tyler goes from state to state and always has something lined up off the internet. Well finally he drops that online dating knowledge so fucking simple a retarded monkey could do it. I wasn’t that into online dating but after reading the how to advice from below I may just have to see if I can get into it.
First I want to discuss my thoughts on dating websites: when to use them and how to utilize them. Second I want to explain what an attractive profile looks like compared to the typical run of the mill profile. It seems obvious…but after hearing what girls tell me, and rummaging through a few profiles, it is painfully obvious that some people need a little profile 101 advice.
I don’t think guys should use online dating as a primary way of meeting women. I think it is extremely time consuming, and the reward is RARELY worth the input. Aside from it being time consuming, I think it’s just a cop out for approaching women in general. The only examples I can think of where it is beneficial to utilize online dating would be if you are brand new to a city. It can be difficult going out alone and I understand that. Online dating can be a good way to pass the time until you start finding people to hang out with. Secondly, if you’re having an extremely hard time at the bars and are in a ridiculous dry spell…fuck it, sign in and find a date to get back on the horse. Finally, if you can control the amount of time you spend online and you’re not exerting too much energy, but are setting up occasional dates with attractive women, it may be worth it.
I use them when I’m traveling to random places that have NO women anywhere. Tiny counties down south, little towns out west, you just cannot find bars with women in them during the week. I will sign into my account a week or so before I travel, change the zip code on my profile to where I’m headed, and let it marinate. I let all of the women see the “new guy” on the website, and I review the messages that come in. A week is long enough to get some good hits, with enough time to confirm a date on one of the nights.
Profiles: As a guy, I don’t read profiles. I look for the girl with the shortest skirt, highest heels, and that’s who I will respond to. Women will read your profile and think about it. Be interesting, be original. Every guy likes relaxing, likes all kinds of music, and watching sports, etc…that is boring. I went on a site and I literally picked three different guys’ “About Me” section and pasted them here. Let’s take a look:
1.My hobbies include playing and watching sports, watching tv, watching movies, playing video games, hanging out, working on car, playing and listening to music, reading, cooking, playing with my dogs and photography
2. My goals hmmm….
~short-term graduate from college in May, win a championship ring, and find a loving girlfriend
~long-term get married, have children, and be a juvenile officer
3. What makes me unique? Well I have an eye impairment called Nystagmus, I am getting three degrees when I graduate from college, I have never pumped gas into a car before.
4. I listen to all types of music really.
Alright, so he just went right for the bullet points on why to date him. Movies, video games, hanging out, and he’s unique because he has some disease Nystagmus and never pumped gas before?? I don’t see one benefiting thing in any of these points! Okay, let’s just move on.
well I’m a good Guy I love to make people smile and to hangout I work a lot mostly nights so I don’t get to cuddle a lot my daughter is awesome she has came along way since her mom left state we have a lot of fun mostly going to the park or watching cartoons or coloring.I’m strong and independent I like it this way but I’m just looking for that funny girl so o can laugh and smile
This profile kind of screams, I’m a basket case who loves run on sentences. A guy should never need to verbally say that he likes to make people smile, or that he is strong and independent. This should be implied. Okay, one more profile.
I enjoy building computers, art, music, driving around and taking some time to just relax and watch movies. My hobbies would be just messing around on my computer I built, making art, trying to explore the massive amount of music I have.
I mostly work. I would enjoy meeting new people, I’m very laid back and nice and I try to be out going and nice to everybody.
I would like to learn how to successfully write code and become a programmer, but just haven’t had much time lately. I have a full time just making hydraulic parts.
I’d like to meet a girl that’s for a long term relationship.
I have short sandy blonde hair, green eyes – I’m around 6’5 in height, I enjoy a long range of music. Ska, Metal, rock, classic rock and more.
Okay, at least this guy has some unique interests. He builds computers, which is cool to some people, and he’s into art. He has some goals that are a little different, and identifies the kind of music he likes. I’m not exactly sure why he put his description there, since his picture was right on his page, but whatever. I feel like you could take this guy’s profile, spruce it up a bit still conveying his interests, and make it stand out a bit.
When I was looking for profiles, I looked for guys I thought were average looking dudes. I picked the first three, and didn’t rummage through looking for examples of poor profiles. When I’m on dates, women always tell me how mundane profiles are. Here is the “About Me” section on my profile:
I fell in love when I was 7. My parents brought me to a Whitney Houston concert and there was this girl sitting adjacent to me. I thought she was beautiful. I felt like every song Whitney was singing was about the both of us. I could tell she felt the same way…That was my first realization that love existed.
I enjoy fine dining, drinking wine and telling funny stories. I like the finer things in life. Sometimes the finer things are cooking on an open fire, with a tent, on a lake…or drinking a dirty martini while dressed up, doing the moon walk across the dance floor.
I travel a lot, and that can make it hard for some people. I’m pretty laid back so I don’t get too worked up about it. The longer the wait, the sweeter the kiss. (little Josh Turner quote there)
Well, if you happen to have gone to a Whitney Houston concert 22 years ago and fell in love with a little blond boy, please message me…Thanks.
Notice I don’t mention that I like watching TV, playing video games, hanging out, making people smile, or anything else along those lines. That is stuff I might do when I’m bore, but not what I want to exhibit here. I want to express the fact that I like wine and getting drunk, I like the outdoors and dancing at bars, I touch on how I enjoy country music by adding a little quote, and finally I tug on the little romantic strings of a woman’s heart with my moving story. Most messages girls send me start off by saying either: I wasn’t that girl at the concert but I wish I was. Or, I was the girl at the concert!
Once I decide who I want to go out with, I cut right to the chase. I tell them I want to go out on (Day of the week). If they respond that they are free that night, I follow up with, “I found this restaurant “xxx” I wanted to try. How about 8?” Letting them make decisions is stressful for them and you. Just pick a nice place, pick a time and throw it out there. Go out for drinks, no dinner. They haven’t earned dinner.
The last thing I will mention is pictures. If you’re in good shape, throw a shirtless pic up there. The best kinds of shirtless pic are the ones where you are doing things other than standing in front of the mirror. I have one of me canoeing, and another bad ass picture of me finishing a Spartan Race. If you don’t think shirtless pics will help, still try to add some pictures of you doing fun stuff. It just adds to the overall feeling of your profile.
So if you’re using the world wide web to find women to date, try to make your profile stand out a bit by telling a story about yourself rather than ranting off in bullet form. Don’t waste time emailing back and forth for 3 weeks, just cut to the chase with the good looking women. Don’t waste time with chicks that are ugly but look easy. Online dating is like an endless buffet of women, and you will get full quick so just go right for the best piece of meat. God speed.
