Day 427

Online dating don'ts: things I HATE in profiles....

I don't want to see a photo of your dog. Seriously, I'm dating you, not the dog.

I don't want to see you in front of the Taj Majal, the Eiffel Tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or whatever landmark you paid a lot of money to see. I can google a photo of it and see it myself. Seriously, must you convince me that you know how to get to the airport, jump on a plane and take a cab to these places?

I still am not interested in seeing your dog. If your main photo is you and a dog, I'm not only going to "pass" you, but I'll intentionally block you for all of eternity.

I don't want to know what your friends say about you.

Yes, I know you like to travel. Everyone likes traveling.

Seriously, I couldn't give two shits about your dog. Or your cat. Or your ocelot. If you had a moose or a jellyfish, now that might make an interesting photo.

I don't want to know that you can wear jeans or a little black dress. So could I.

Those photos where you put bunny ears or funny noses on your face. They suck.

    But it is relevant, Rav. These photos tell you immediately that these are not your kind of people and that's helpful - a short cut. For some people their dogs are essential to their being so it's important that you know that from the start.... so you can skim over them. I see people's dogs as an expression of their character. As in Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass - their soul walking beside them. It's fascinating.

    Actually, I grew up with animals and I had animals with my kids. However, people have to understand that these are "pets," not their actual children, and it your life revolves around your pet, then it limits your availability to be with humans. Seriously, these people are OBSESSED!
