When someone decides to join the dating pool by making a profile on a dating app, you can find cringe-worthy content in people’s bios. This can disturb some people as most are there to make real connections. A recent online poll asked users, “What are some of the most cringe things you’ve seen in an online dating bio?” Here are  some of the top-voted responses.

1. Background Checks

“Years ago on Plenty of Fish, this woman wrote in her profile that she wanted men to send her their social security number so that she can run a background check before they chat,” a person divulged.

“Let me be your next big mistake. I’m definitely NOT the one, but I promise you’ll still be thinking about me long after!” Oh, you mean I’ll suffer from PTSD after the trauma you put me through? Lovely,” someone explained.

3. Pregnant

“Yes, I am pregnant; yes, the father is out of the picture,” or something along those lines. Oh boy, sign me up,” somebody said.

4. Nice Guy

One person shared, “Sick of the players and one-night stands. Looking for a nice guy to treat me like a queen.”

5. Dogs

“In the “I’m weirdly attracted to” prompt on Hinge, she wrote “Dogs.” I dropped the phone because I was laughing so hard,” someone exclaimed.

6. Bait and Switch

“The profile looked good, but the more I talked to her, the worse it got. When I talked to her, I could hear a few kids in the background; she then told me that not only does she have kids, but their baby daddy is in prison, and she can date as long as she dumps me before he gets out,” a user exclaimed.

8. Doctor

“Don’t message me if you’re not a doctor.” She was a receptionist at her father’s clinic,” someone revealed.

9. No Response

Someone explained, “I’ve been seeing a lot of “I’m probably not going to like you” and “There’s a good chance I won’t respond.” Uh, okay, why are you even on here then?”

10. Hiking

“I like hiking,” after a while of bringing up hiking, asking hiking-related questions when I was on dating sites, and getting vague responses, it finally dawned on me that putting anything about hiking is code for I don’t date fat men,” someone said.

11. Marry Me

A person shared, “I plan to get married and start a family within six months. DO NOT SWIPE RIGHT UNLESS YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT MARRYING ME.”

12. Vague

“Any profile that wants everything offers nothing and prioritizes multiple things before you, with standards she herself can’t reach or disqualify 80% of men,” a user explained.

“That covers most of the ones I’ve seen. That’s all vague, but it covers soo many things that’s all bad,” another user replied.

13. Confidently Pursue

“I want a man who will confidently pursue me.” It sounds like you’ve dated a lot of weak men or let men take advantage of you. Or, worse, you want to be lazy and let him do all the pursuing, showing minimal interest or initiative,” someone exclaimed.

14. Red Flag

“Whenever a woman proclaims that “she is a handful” or “she is too much.” I find it super cringe because they are so proud of it, but for men, it’s the biggest red flag in the world,” somebody revealed.

15. The First Message

“I don’t send the first message.” On Bumble, where the woman HAS TO send the first message…meaning she’s either a troll and/or a complete idiot,” a user stated.
