Funny, competitive, hard working guy that likes to have a good time. Enjoying my kids, working out, working and having as much fun as possible. Guy 3: I love people, cultures, traveling, and trying new things.
I’d be happy to tell you more, send me a message and we’ll take it from there.
Guy number 1 starts out by saying he doesn’t enjoy talking about himself, which immediately makes me think he would be uncomfortable on a first date.
His interests, “workout, read, watch movies and travel,” are the same as 99% of guys on okc. His sentences make him sound like he’s not a native English speaker or he’s had too much to drink before writing this profile.
Guy 3 gets plus marks for writing complete sentences and starting off in an upbeat way.
But the “I’d be happy to tell you more” is cliché and somewhat egotistical.
You haven’t proven that you’re interesting enough for me to message you, so to ask people to ask you about yourself in the first paragraph is a nonstarter.If you are someone who is guilty of writing a self-summary like one of the above, the good news is lots of people do it so it doesn’t take much improvement to stand out.Here are the self-summaries of some men who have messaged me through Okcupid lately: Guy 1: I don’t enjoy talking about myself but I’d say I am open minded, ambitious, and get along with almost everyone.I am not into clubbing scene so it is difficult to meet people hence the reason to have a profile here. I try to live a healthy lifestyle by exercising 3 – 4 times a week.Guy 2: I am a man who is out to meet new people and make friends.I am an easy going person with a lot of smile and charm.
