From time to time, I think about my SO’s profile and how he is exactly how he described himself in his profile, like every last detail. Mmm…except he’s way more handsome in person 🙂
What was your SO’s profile like? How did they describe themselves? What did you think of their profile and photos?
I’d love to hear stories!

We met back in the days of ICQ, and the only things he had on his profile were where he lived, his ‘name’ (nickname), and his year of birth.

What’s funny is that my SO and I were both on OKCupid, but somehow never found each other through that. I guess the fates wanted us to meet in person. I know for a fact if we had met online and saw each other’s profiles, we would have fallen for each other that way instead. I’m convinced that we’re just so right for each other that we could have met anywhere at any time and still liked each other.

I always wish I had taken a screen shot of my husband’s profile! I actually saw my husband’s profile before he saw mine, and I thought he was super cute and seemed perfect for me. Except I didn’t contact him because he said he was really into sports and wanted a girl who was too. I hate sports. So I just moved on and a few days later he actually messaged me! I guess he liked my profile enough to deal with the fact that I am anti-sports haha. I remember I liked his photos because 1) he was cute and 2) it was him with his mom’s dog and I love any dude snuggling with a pup. As for the content, I don’t really remember exactly what he said I just remember that he mentioned being close to his mom, liking homebody-ish stuff (which is great for me who haaaates bars and parties), and him just seeming very much like a grown up.

I have thought about it time too time myself. Considering…we are together now for it. Makes me think of my own profile since he is the one that messaged me first!
I know when we first met, he didn’t look like his profile pictures. Not in a bad way, he was just missing the beard due to being in the military. After getting to know him, his profile is was just like him, it was light hearted, goofy, and full of humor. His profile made me laugh and smile.
I remember him telling me after the first time we met that, “I was a lot more beautiful in person, and not at all what he was expecting.” And he also liked what I listed as my six things I couldn’t live without.
On OKC, you can answer questions and leave opinions about things so people can get a better idea of you. I enjoyed reading his answers to random questions like, “Is burning the America flag unpatriotic?” He was so well spoken, intelligent, and again, goofy.

Fiance actually had no pic, but his profile was sarcastic and made me laugh. He’s been making me laugh for the past 8 years.

I wish I had taken a screen shot, too. Thing is, I seem to remember that I did – to send to a friend but I sure can’t find it anywhere and of course, we’ve both deactivated our profiles long, long, ago…
My SO contacted me first but I had seen his profile while browsing the site just before officially joining.
I wonder what he thought of my profile? Obviously, it intrigued him enough to write to me but actually…I didn’t write it – my best friend did. So, I have her to thank 🙂

My SOs profile was EXACTLY like he is in person – well-written, witty, and quirky. He listed really amusing traits/details about himself, and it seemed like we had similar senses of humor, which was the first thing that caught my attention. The second thing that piqued my interest was his pictures, because he had photos of himself doing tons of interesting things, including running marathons, which I do, too.
I was completely new to the online dating thing and felt self-conscious about messaging him, but on OKC, you can add someone to your “favorites” list, which I did, so I could come back and find his profile easily. I didn’t realize when I did it that whoever you add to your “favorites” gets a notification that you did so. He found out I’d added him to my “favorites” and he checked out my profile, but didn’t message me right away. After a few days he sent me a pretty generic message but it opened up the door to communication and we quickly moved to e-mailing and then met for our first date.
The funny thing is I never put a picture on my profile, so the whole time we were talking, he had no idea what I looked like and he never asked for a picture. He claims that leading up to the date he just kept thinking “I hope she’s not hideous, I hope she’s not secretly a man.” LOL.
I wish I had a screen shot of his profile too, or that I could find it again. It seriously represented exactly who he was (and is.)
Oh yeah and OKC said we were a 93% match – pretty close, but it turns out we’re a 100% match!

We were both on OKcupid in 2004 and his profile was witty, sarcastic, and a bit cocky. He’s also a hot baldy which I LOVE! He did a good job of descibing himself and making it interesting while pointing out what was important in his life. The final profile question on cupid (at least back then) was “You should message me if” to which he responded “There is no IF, do it, do it now!” So I did. 🙂
I was lucky he thought I was interesting because he is a spelling and grammer fanatic and I didn’t spell check my profile at all. He is still giving me shit about my spelling to this day (and it has gotten much better). But I still give him shit because his profile name was his xbox live handle. 😛
We just got hitched on our 8th dating anniversary. 🙂

My DH’s profile was exactly representative of who he is. The man doesn’t know how to lie or embellish. He found me since I hadn’t considered men of his age when searching (he’s quite a bit younger than I am). His writing was excellent and grammatically correct (I’m a former English teacher lol).
I was very impressed with his view of women – he adores us. It came through in everything he wrote. He listed the top item in his list of what would make him “supremely happy” as seeing his partner succeed in her goals and ambitions. As to what he found attractive ina women, he said, “I can fins something physically attractive in just about any woman. It’s not something so simple as looks – it’s more about who she is, her life experience,intelligence, open mind, passion & wonder for life.”
I was extricating myself from a long marriage to a man who seems to hate women so this was all very appealing, once I got past the age difference. 4 years later I know that everything he said is all true.

My Darling Husband messaged me first. I made myself a promise not to seek out men on Eharmony because I was not stick thin and model-gorgeous, so I decided that I would put an honest group of photos of myself up, and those who are attracted can come to me.
I had several people contact me, but DH’s profile stood out. It was the perfect amount of funny, informative, thoughtful, and honest. He didn’t like bars / clubs (nor do I), was up front about his affection level (which was perfect because I love cuddling), made jokes in his profile, and just let me know exactly who he was and what he liked. He was a poli-sci major, and as a native to the DC area, it’s pretty ingrained in my brain to be politically oriented, and he working in the news industry solidified my interest in him even more since I’ve dated some ill informed people that after a while made me sick. It’s nothing personal, it’s just something I need in my life.
He’s been such an amazing blessing to have around, and he did not mislead me whatsoever on his profile. I knew he was the best fit, and of all the people floating around on the internet, I’m always amazed that we found eachother. I’m so lucky to have married him.

I don’t really remember his profile really so I guess it’s very simple :-). We met on yahoo messenger. I don’t think he even posted his photo in there but I guess he emailed his photo to me.

FH took screen shots of our profiles! He’s such a sap. 🙂
His profile was very basic. No muss, no fuss. Just where he’s from, what he does for a living and that he likes soccer.
That’s all it took though!
