By writing a serious profile, they often come across as too desperate.
Women may think you're boring and cannot get dates in real life.
Most people don't put much thought into their headline and will write things like "looking for love" or "nice guy looking for a nice girl"... It will only make your profile blend in with everyone else's and could even convey desperation or a boring personality.
Also, don't write down too much detailed personal information, because strangers may be able to use it to look you up on google or facebook and find out details that you may not want them to know.
To make things easier, you can do a few things in your profile like stirring up an emotional reaction that will entice her to message you, or including questions for her to answer.
a) If you stir up an emotional reaction in your profile, you'll generally get more responses.
" "Feel my shirt, it's made of boyfriend material..." "This profile has an adequate amount of cowbell." "We'll just lie and say we met at a strip club in Vegas." "I brush twice a day." "Quit staring at my butt!
" "This one time, at band camp..." 3) Don't Just Talk About it… A common thing that people do on their profiles is they simply state their qualities and interests, as opposed to explaining them.
