There's nothing sexier to a man than your confidence. Come up with ideas or small stories that paint a picture of the two of you that a man can imagine himself in. When you go to a party and you meet someone who keeps saying, "I do this, I like that, I am this," don't you get bored? One big pet peeves for many men is horrible spelling and grammar in profiles. It gives men the wrong impression and encourages those you probably aren't interested in to write to you.
They've had enough demands in their life including those put on them by ex-wives and families. Otherwise it's like false advertising, which is hard to keep up.
They're not looking for a repeat of what they just left. Don't try and pretend to be a certain way just to attract a Quality Man, when in reality, you are not that woman.
For some women that sounds horrid but in real life we do it all the time. You might laugh more at his jokes, you pay closer attention to what he says, and you show your best side. Excitement is what you want a man feeling when he's done reading what you've written.
You are literally marketing yourself to the male population online.
In fact, you do yourself a disservice pretending to be who you think a man wants.It actually sets you up for the wrong type of man to come into your life.
