Your on line dating profile shouldn't list everything you have ever done, including that one time your tried badminton when you were nine years old! The reason is that it could be misinterpreted. You might think that it shows you to be a well-rounded individual but it could come across to someone else that you find it hard to commit to one thing. Sure if you swim, play tennis and go hiking on regular basis then say so and say why you like to do it. Just don't include every sport or interest you have ever had. Keep it current - you might have been a great gymnast when you were twelve but if you've piled on the pounds since then you're giving someone the wrong impression of you.

Never, ever put anything in that is crude. Why do some men think that just because they're on line dating they can show off their sexual prowess in their profile and expect women to be queuing up to meet them? The vast majority of women are not looking for that sort of person when they start looking for a partner and will just mutter something under their breath and pass to the next profile. There's nothing wrong with a guy saying that he's caring, affectionate and loves to hug. A subtle hint that you enjoy the physical side of a relationship as well as the mental is enough.
If you look around the large number of internet personals sites, you tend to notice that women seem to naturally avoid the crass. There isn't anything wrong in saying that you are a passionate individual. Most men wouldn't want you to be too upfront though - they're mainly sensitive souls who need reassurance!
In spite of the usual British reserve some people try too hard to get their point across. It's best not to say that your brilliant at something - find another way of saying it without coming across as arrogant or rather full of yourself - most people don't find it that attractive. If you have just come out of a relationship that ended badly and you are angry with the opposite sex in general then the time isn't right for you to start looking for a new relationship. Your profile will probably be fairly negative and if anyone does respond to it you won't be receptive. Leave it a little while - time is a great healer.
