Dating profiles clichés translated

By: Lizzie Cernik

In the world of dating, it can be hard to know when a man’s being truthful. And with the increased popularity of internet romance, it’s even harder to tell who’s being honest. We’ve found some of the most common phrases you see on dating websites and translated their real meaning.

What he says: “I’m a cuddly build”
What he means: “I can’t leave the house without the assistance of a forklift truck”

Should you meet him? Yes. (But only if you’re not too shallow.) OK, so he might not be big enough to qualify for the next wrestling championships, but cuddly definitely indicates he’s a little on the big side. It’s not a lie, just a euphemism, so if you don’t mind a bit of extra squidge around the edges, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t give this guy a go.

Dating profiles clichés translated

What he says: “Not looking for anything serious”
What he means: “I mess girls around”

Should you meet him? No. Sorry ladies, but if you’re considering anything real, the clue’s in the title. He’s not looking for a relationship. You might think you can change his mind but it’s probably not worth the aggro. Chances are he’s only on a dating site because he’s run out of girls at Barasti.

What he says: “I’ve got no specific type”
What he means: “I’ll take anything going.”

Should you meet him? Yes. Men with very specific ‘types’ tend to be pretty shallow. If he’s not bothered about your weight or hair colour, this is probably a good thing. He wants to get to know a girl, not base it all on looks. Of course there’s also a chance he’s a major sleaze bag who will just come on to any woman within a three mile radius. But if you get this vibe from him then run away as fast as possible.

What he says: “My relationship status is complicated”
What he means: “I’m still married.”

Should you meet him? No. If he’s not sure whether he’s single, be very wary. When a man wants out of a relationship, he’ll make up all kinds of stories to try to convince the next girl he’s interested that it’s all over.

What he says: “I’m really fun and easygoing”
What he means: “I’m not that fun or easygoing, I just can’t think of anything more interesting to write.”

Should you meet him? Maybe. This doesn’t really tell you anything, so try to get clues from the rest of his profile. What are his hobbies and interests? If any of them match yours, it might be worth meeting up with him of he seems kind and friendly.

Among me and my spouse we have owned far more MP3 players above the years than I'm able to count, which include Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the final handful of a long time I've settled down to a person line of players. Why? Due to the fact I was content to discover how well-designed and enjoyment to utilize the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
