    Hi Angelina, I would like to know more. My only concern is the distance, but the plus is, you could come and see the small horses (well actually ponies) just down from my house. I don't know what else to write. But I like you.

    Jun 28 1:13 pm

    What are you up to today?

    Jun 28 2:07 pm

    OK, I give up."


    Online dating people please don't do this. Some people have exams and a video game addiction. Or work I guess. Decent first message as well!

    Well, bullet dodged there! Three messages in a day when you don't get a response? Not so good.

    In pedestrian life, I forgot my headphones/protective shield and people say more vulgar things without them I think. Some guy said super loudly to his friend while I passed by "think I can't fuck that?" whiiiiiich doesn't even make very much sense? Ugh. I miss my car

    What is your name?

    What I’m doing with my life
    Fixing people's cellphones. And getting paid pretty well to do it.

    What do you actually do? Can you pad it out a bit?

    I spend a lot of time thinking about
    What Petyr Baelish is really up to.

    What else? do you ever think about where you want to be in X years etc? Your hobbies?

    You should message me if
    ...any of the following are true.

    I'd make this shorter and more narrative, but thats just my style.

    @WACriminal I like it! Your what I spend time thinking about made me giggle out loud. My only thing, and it's a personal thing, is there are no straight on pictures of your face completely uncovered. I'm old and cynical and been dating too long so I like a proper view of someone's face before I meet up with them. I like your main pic though! I don't think there's anything you need to change, you sound fun.

    @WACriminal I also think it looks pretty great, but like Liiya I'd like to see the first two sections fleshed out a little. There's a lot of humor in your profile, which is great, but I think there could be a little more actual, truthful detail, too.

    Oh my gosh the woman I went out with last night was real neat and I hope she thought I was neat. We're going to go out again this week, either tomorrow or Thursday. It was a ton of fun just talking with her, and she seems so perceptive and driven.

    I guess the fact that she was like "Yeah I can go out like any time after work!" is a sign that she thinks I'm neat.

    I do think I'm going to have a decent time out tonight with another person but I think probably unless we super-click this time I am going to break it off. Last year I spent a long time not being sure who I wanted to be with out of the people I was seeing and it was mostly nerve-wracking rather than fun. I don't want to drag things out this time!

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.

    My self-summary
    What is your name?

    So, this may just be me, but I wait to tell people my name until after I get a response. I have a fairly unique first name that would allow people to easily google me based on a few other things that were in my profile. In my online dating experience, almost no one had their name in their profile.

    Thats fair enough! I personally like it because its easier to say "Hi John" to start out with, and also as a woman on the flip side you can do a cheeky google and check he's not a rapist .

  • KamiroKamiro Registered User regular
    Once a conversation gets going, I definitely give out my name. But for those random people who just look at my profile, I'd rather not have that out there. It's surprisingly easy to find a person online with a name, their photos, and some random information that can be found in dating profile, so I'd rather keep that to a minimum from all the randos out there.

    I usually do a "Hi, my name's X. You can text me at Y" after I've asked a person out, but I have info that makes my like public-presence googleable if you want. Like "I work on [thing where I write and my name is my byline]".

    I don't keep my name in my profile precisely so I can use it to introduce myself

    Like, if someone else has a name in their profile, I'll likely give them mine right away

    But oftentimes they do not, and it gives me the great opportunity (generally right around date setup) to be like, "By the way, my name's Greg" and create that opening for an introduction

    Also I feel kind of uncomfortable using my real name on the Internet. Probably because I grew up in the age of message boards and IM where screen names were the norm. On some weird level it feels more normal to talk to strangers using a nonsensical nickname.
