After the fall of My Space, I eventually created my Ok Cupid account.
The more of these I see on a profile, the less likely I’ll be to either initiate or even respond to communications with an offender. Also, group photos where it isn’t clear which member of the group you are. Cropped couple photos I can’t believe I even need to list this, but I do. I’ve seen more than a few photos of a man who clearly has his arm around a woman who has been cropped out of the photo.
Before I launch into the list, I need to say a few things. Don’t you want to attract someone who’s a bit more discriminating in who they’ll hop in the sack with?

It sucks to be one of the only kids in your elementary school not getting a visit from Santa, and it still sucks as an adult.As history has it, when people defected from My Space to Facebook, that online community became a dust town.Dating sites like Ok Cupid and Plenty of Fish (POF) became more popular.After four exchanges, I realize that the guy is clearly unable to write, spell, punctuate, etc.His messages to me are so bad that they’re beyond illiterate — it’s almost as if this whole thing is some sort of joke. I don’t expect perfect grammar, but I do expect communication that doesn’t need to be deciphered before I can respond to it.Short but nicely written and says the kinds of things I want to read.
