Some guys fudge their height by as much as 7 inches, 25-year-old Lindsay Schoonover learned.The school security officer and part-time bra fitter is 5-foot-1 — not exactly a tall drink of water — and she met a guy for a blind date off Yahoo! He was 5 feet 2 inches tall but had led her to believe he was about 5-foot-9.“The Richmond area is traditional, slightly more conservative,” she notes.Schoonover agrees with that assessment, although she sees two different camps of Richmonders: the conservative, married-at-25 crowd and the liberal, arty crowd that’s not looking for a serious commitment yet.
One of Patterson’s pet peeves is a profile that says next to nothing about the person: “ ‘If you like the picture, hit me up.’ I hate that crap.” Schoonover, too, wants to see guys make an effort when sending an e-mail, rather than writing the generic, “Hey, what’s up?” Like Williams, Patterson prefers photos taken in a natural setting, as opposed to a posed picture, although she finds pictures of men with their children a little creepy, simply from a privacy angle.Two things guys also should avoid when writing a profile are joking about how online dating “isn’t going to work” (law of self-fulfilling prophecy) and self-deprecating humor.Although she tried and e Harmony, Patterson found success at Plentyoffish.com, a free dating site.
Photos are important to Patterson, but so is a witty, intelligent profile — preferably with correct spelling.
Richmond is a tough market, especially for newcomers to the area, Daichman says.
