Today, everyone has a smartphone. If they ever look up from their smartphones, they will see people just like them; also consumed and staring at their screens. With every application imaginable available, people are constantly checking their phones because they can do everything and anything in the palm of their hands. Everything and anything also includes online dating. Instead of the traditional tactic of meeting a stranger at a bar, people are opting for dating apps that allow them to swipe through potential significant others. An important part of online dating is creating the perfect profile that will attract suitors without revealing too much. According, to some women on Reddit, not all profiles are created equal, as they share some of their dating profile deal-breakers.
Sure, every woman wants an honest and open partner, but some dating profiles just reveal too much, “My last girlfriend was cheating on me so I'm a little insecure right now.” Everyone has baggage, including anyone who’s had their heart broken, but everyone doesn’t need to carry that baggage. In the same way that you never want to talk about an ex on a first date, you don’t want to talk about an ex online.
