Or even those who are hoping to get some action on the side without their girlfriends knowing. There are rules regarding creating profiles for

Of first messages, profiles and hooking up

I like filling out profiles. They are fun. I change my twitter bio a few dozen times a week until I am satisfied with it. I change my AV and background pics in the same frequency for the same reason. So when I joined online dating sites a couple of years ago, I did the same thing. I changed my profile when I felt like.

Can you be less amusing so we can sorta start dating?

I cannot speak for every woman out there but these are my rules and regulations when it comes to messaging me anywhere. BE POLITE. How difficult is it to be polite to another human being? Say, hello, my name is so and so. I see that you _______ (insert distinctive hobby or past time). Obviously
