Part of learning how to write a good online dating profile is learning what not to write. I think part of the problem is that a lot of us guys has the tendency to say waaaaay too much in our profiles. Before posting your profile or sending a message , take a minute to re-read what you wrote.

Just wanted to add few things: — Almost all of these points apply to a girl too; and no, none of them are following these except some but then a lot of guys do this too!
