Romantic Being a romantic is a plus, because it shows you have passion and emotion. But the actual language you use — the way you write the profile, not just what it says — may have a bigger influence on your potential matches than you realize. Actually saying that you have nothing to say or that you only want others to ask you questions will send out a clear signal to those browsing the dating profiles that you may be somebody who is really not very interesting.
You've beaten me to the punch on one of my own post ideas, more good stuff to come though.

It might be less traffic, but the quality is higher. There's a ton of information in your clouds. Matt, The more people know about you the more likely they are to reject you and not want to date you.
For those that don't know, a word cloud is a graphical representation of the frequency amount of each word used in a given text.

One big disclaimer to all of this. I found this profile to stand out from most others, making the writer sound interesting and attractive as a person, rather than ordinary and cliche, like the vast majority of dating profiles seem to appear. This indicates that although you have faults, arrogance is not one of them and that you are aware of where you need help in your life. Also, no big surprise that 'sports' is the biggest word in the men's' online dating profile. It tends to work best with guys under age 35 who are not ugly though there are certainly exceptions to both of those generalizations.
