Online dating cliches are getting out of hand folks. I mean really, can’t we all just be original. 🙂 So here I sit clicking through online dating profiles in that quest for my next great date…there it is again, for the 10th time today, there is the phrase “Live, Love, Laugh!” It’s proudly plastered across yet another dating profile! By my best estimate about 1 in 30 single women using online dating sites use this phrase on their profile.
Please tell me why? Why must everyone say the same damn thing in their profile?
Can you not thing of something that reflects you? Anything? Anything except a collection of clichés? Perhaps you can relate to my rant today if you have recently searched online dating profiles… And sure maybe there was something cute and clever to this phrase at one point when not everyone used it. Maybe the first 200 million times it was uttered it was indeed endearing; but now this phrase needs to die. It belongs next to phrases like…
1. “I’m a passionate woman” …Oh really? WOWZERS!
2. “I’m looking for a man with whom I can build the next part of my life.” Yes, you are on a dating site their boss!
3. “Eat, Drink, Be Happy” Please go away, I have a headache now
4. “I’m just looking for a chill girl”. Wow dude, that’s some weak sauce. It sounds like what you really need is a robot with tits.
5. “I have high standards” You must be at the wrong place. Jus saying!
6. “Live Life” …..as opposed to?
7. “I am very old-fashioned when it comes to dating” WTF does that mean….ladies, spit it out. Your bad about these clichés!
Remember folks, clichés are collections of over used words that basically say nothing and are so vague they just work against you. BE SPECIFIC, BE ORIGINAL!
