If you're a woman on a dating site (and more of you should be, it's a mistake for your life not to be), please fill out your profile with something I can start a conversation about. I need a hook to start a real conversation and for some reason I really dislike starting out with "Hey, how are you?" or "u r hawt, wut's up?"
Give me little bits of something that may be interesting, never that:
1) you like to laugh,
2) your friend is making you do this (we know you're lonely, just like the rest of the human race)
3) you're laid back,
4) you're happy going out or staying in
And listing 40 bands on your profile is a mistake, it's too much text and I skip it.
