After becoming single, I joined an online dating site. After a year of perusing profiles and meeting men for coffee, staying single is starting to look better and better to me. But I’ve stayed on the site, in part for the pure enjoyment of reading what men choose to say about themselves when trying to attract a partner. For instance?

Here are a few of my favorite lines from men’s online dating profiles:

I am romantic, passionate and caring, with just the right amount of masculinity.

I like to take hikes and catch frogs.

I have very little experience with sex. Bondage is okay.

I have achieved my life-long dream of seeing the total solar eclipse in Wyoming.

It’s all about the endorphins.

I have wealth and a doctoral degree and I want to find my new soulmate.

I am not like all the rest.

At 20, my great-grandfather plotted to kill the Czar.

I am mindful that random chance animates the universe.

I have a deep affection for fresh ground coffee.

I want butterflies!

I am always open to trying something new. Except skydiving. And playing with snakes.

I am a very handsome and well-built male.

I was a pirate in my previous life and once a year, or more, I become special.

The woman I am looking for likes her gender.

I’d love to have a pet elephant.

I can wiggle my ears.

I am outgoing and spontaneous and possess ample amounts of wit and charm.

I’m not into Facebook or any other types of whatever that is.

The only fear I have is of butterflies. Those little things scare the heck out of me. Go figure.

I’ve always believed that women make life SO much nicer — and I want one.

Time’s a wastin’ so let’s saddle up and trot down the path to something special…

I’m not about to admire your wiggling ears or trot down the path with you. But thanks for making me smile — even if you didn’t mean to — and I wish you all the best in your quest to find someone who will.
