If you’re looking to spot, or not end up with, a bad dating profile, you’ll need to know what makes these profiles stand out as the worst.
Even in the beginning of your first venture into online dating, most likely, you already came across some pretty bad profiles. There are plenty of ways a dater can go wrong when setting up their profile, and all it takes is a few mistakes to start turning away potential matches.
Most people don’t know what it takes to create a successful profile, so they just write something about themselves and hope for the best. Sure, this tactic can succeed, but, when you want more options and better matches, you’ll need to know how to avoid the common blunders.

In the meantime, if you want to learn how to spot these terrible dating profiles, here are some examples of what to look out for.
“If you want to know, ask me”
A blank profile is a bad profile. If this dater does not even want to take the time to write about themselves in their bio, they likely will not put much (if any) effort into a conversation, date, or relationship with you.
Not to mention that a barely-filled bio can also point to a scam account or a bot. Either way, it is best just to steer clear of these blank bummers.
“I’m new to online dating so here goes nothing. I love to laugh and I’m just looking for my partner in crime. My friends say I’m kind and funny.”
Profiles that are filled with clichés like these demonstrate the creator’s lack of interests. If this person couldn’t even think of a couple things about themselves that stand out, or they didn’t want to spend the energy trying, you’re better off avoiding them.
“Everyone on here is so shallow and won’t even give someone like me a second look. That’s fine though, you obviously don’t want a nice guy, you just want a good looking jerk.”
A profile like this belongs to someone that really needs to do some more work on themselves before they can be in a good and trusting relationship. Even when they are not this extreme, negative profiles will turn away most of your matches.
“Don’t swipe right unless you are over 6’, athletic, don’t play video games, don’t spend all of your time in front of the TV, can take initiative, can provide for me, etc…”
Picky profiles like these should make you wonder what this dater is doing to improve themselves so much that makes them feel like they can demand the world of their matches. If they don’t have the same impossible standards for themselves, then you’ll never keep up.
“Move along if you’re overweight or ugly. I don’t waste my time on women who don’t even try to be better.”
If you find a profile like this, where the user won’t even dilute their harsh opinions in their bio, imagine the things they’d say to you in messages or in real life. Everybody has flaws and it should be a huge warning sign if someone can’t admit their own or look past some in another.
“I’m looking for a woman that will take care of the house while I’m working. You must be able to cook real meals, keep our house clean, and take care of any future children.”
Outdated ideals like these in a profile will certainly turn off any woman that doesn’t want to conform to the old family structure. In modern online dating, an old-fashioned profile is not going to attract many matches, if any at all.
“My profile is wrong, I’m actually 16”
A major red flag is a young teen lying about their age on a dating app. If they actually state their real age in their bio, you’ll know for sure to avoid them. And if they don’t list a different age, it’s for the best not to even engage with another online dater that looks a bit young.
“I like going out and staying in. I’m just as comfortable at a basketball game as I am at the theater.”
A profile like this where the dater doesn’t know how to talk about themselves or share their attributes in a positive way will surely send away most of their matches. Your swipers are going to want to know what makes you different from all of the other online daters that enjoy ‘staying in and going out’.
