Let’s face it men, women already think we’re a bunch of cavemen, so they don’t need further confirmation in the form of incoherent and misspelled ramblings.
Spelling errors or typing "cuz" instead of "because" in your messages will turn them off as fast as telling them you share a bed with your mother. This is tricky because women have a mastery over emoticons that we will never truly fathom, but misuse one and it could derail your chances. "Lmfao" will get you a giant 193 percent response rate bump, but "rofl" will get you stone cold silence.
Even if you do like “walking on the beach” or “drinking wine in front of a roaring fire” leave it out – everyone says that.
Also, you’re not Frank Sinatra, so steer clear of the demeaning colloquialisms like "baby" or "doll." Turns out women are not great fans of chauvinism, especially from someone they don’t even know.
So go ahead and be honest about those kinds of things. If you have a foot fetish or a hardcore drug habit, maybe save that for date number...never.
Also, make sure to keep things positive on your profile. Coming on too strong is a big time turn-off for women (although unsurprisingly, not for men.
According to a Pew Research poll released last October, 59 percent of Internet users think that online dating is a good way to meet people, while 36 percent of Americans who are single and actively looking for a partner, according to dating site Zoosk, are going online to find a match.
Now, you may think that having a face like Ryan Gosling and a bank account like Mark Zuckerberg is the best way to attract women online, but the truth is that even those guys would strike out with a crappy online dating profile.
