ONLINE DATING: Types Of Men On Dating Sites

A few months ago I joined a dating site called Date In Asia that was introduced by a friend of mine. I liked it for a while, but I got bored with it after a few months, so I deleted it. Then a few days ago, I found out about another dating site called OK Cupid and decided to try that out.

I’m not sure how this one will go about, but I have to say that I am pretty humoured by the different profiles I read and messages I have gotten, which is why I decided to write this post!

I don’t believe in finding ‘the one’ through dating sites but I do get kicks out of meeting people there. I treat dating sites as a port to meet friends as oppose to a future husband.

Never tried online dating before? Don’t worry, I shall tell you what to expect! ;)

If you have never tried signing up for dating sites before and don’t know what kind of guys that you would meet, you’re in luck because I am going to tell you! ;)



1. The Witty-Funny Guy

Now, these guys are just the right guy for you. That is though, if you are into funny, witty guys, like me. I find that the right correct of humour is what make me be attracted to somebody. I tend to want to get to know them more and it’s always exciting when they send you a message telling you interesting you are too.

What he would usually say:

“The first thing that people usually notice about me are the chorus of angels and the flock of doves that appear when I enter the room. They’re expensive, sure, but less than buying my own drinks.”

“You should drop me a message if you’re into just chilling with some drinks, having some laughs and enjoy making up phony back-stories of random people at places.”

“I am 21 years old. I play bass and sing in a sub-par punk band. We kinda sound like the Ramones. Except shittier.”

2. The Try-Too-Hard Guy

He will say or do anything you want him to do, especially because he is really interested in you. When you tell him that you’re not interested, he’ll ask you why and want you to tell him what he should do to be the man for you. These types of guys are annoying.

What he would usually say:

“I see that you like to talk, I like to talk too. We click! If you’re free, let me get you dinner. Just tell me what you like to eat, and I’ll bring you there. You’re such a nice girl and I really like you. Please, answer my message. I am waiting for you.”

3. The Cocky Guy

You know these guys. He knows that he has a good body and a great career, and that is all he talks about. He likes to ‘sell’ himself to you by telling you what you can expect from him and giving you all these bullshit about how you should live your life just to show you that he is a responsible guy. Bullshit.

What he would usually say:

“Hi babe. My name is ___ and I work as an Engineer in a big company in Dubai where we usually work with other big companies from all around the world. I have a big home and a fancy car but my life is empty because I do not have someone to share it with. I like you a lot and if you want a real man like me, reply to my message. I’ll be waiting babe.”

4. The Extremely Shy And Usually Nerdy Guy

He is always unsure of himself and what he wants. He is just on the site because he couldn’t find a girl in real life as everyone around him doesn’t find him interesting enough, probably because he does not have a great physique or that he is a big nerd? He hopes that through online dating, the true one will find out who he is inside, and not judge him based on how he looks.

What he would usually say:

“I’m a huge Science freak and spend most of my time working on something cool. Well, for me at least. I’m a big nerd which is great I guess because I heard that nerds are in this year. Woohoo! =) I’m very shy, so it would take awhile for me to open up. But once you get to know me, you’ll know that I’m pretty cool ;)”

5. The Old But Young At Heart Guy

You put your age range of guys that you prefer to know between the ages of 20 to 30 but one day, you get a message from an interested 45-year old guy. You tell him that he is too old for you, but he would ignore you and say that you need someone old to ‘guide’ you.

What he would usually say:

“Hi, I would like to get to know you. I know I am not within your age range, but don’t let my age fool you. I may be old, but I am young at heart. I would love to be friends with you. I am divorced without a child. I have my own business. Say hi back. Thank you.”

6. The I’m Thankful Guy

No Image

He is thankful for finally finding you after searching for a long time. He has never met anyone as beautiful and as kind as you, despite not knowing you at all. But reading from your profile, he knows that you are the one and God is to thank for showing you to him. He is creepy.

What he would things say:

“I am thankful and blessed to have meet someone so wonderful like you though I’ve yet to know you in person. I believe this is good; a blessing from God. You are everything I want in a woman and I never in a million years would think of meeting you. I am truly blessed.”

7. The Horny Guy

The main reason he’s on the site was to find someone to have sex with. Yup, that’s pretty much it.

What he would usually say:

“Hey baby. You looking to hook up? I’m sorry for being so upfront, but I am looking for someone to have sex with and if you want it too, please call me at 012-xxxxxxxx or email me at You can also add me on Skype under the username BigDickJohn or MSN – Looking forward to hear from you.”

“My hobbies include watching porn, masturbating, having sex, making love, jerking off, fucking…”

8. The Romeo

He’s a sweet talker. He would charm you into thinking that you are the most beautiful girl in the whole world. The thing is though, you’re not the only one he has talked to.

What he would usually say:

“Dear Jasmine. When I first saw your photo, I feel like my world literally stopped. I have never seen anyone as beautiful as you. Please, please, talk to me. I shall wait for you, beautiful.”

9. The Quotation/Poetry Guy

These guys love quotations or poems. They think that that would attract a girls’ attention and make them different from other guys out there. Nope!

What he would usually say:

“Roses are red, violets are blue, when I’m on my bed, all I see if you. Babe! You drive me wild! Talk to me!”

“Hi Jasmine. Let me know what you think about this. ‘A woman is like an apple. The great ones are always on top. Most men don’t want to pluck these apples on top because they would get pricked by thorns and bushes, so they would just pluck apples at the bottom of the tree that are not as nice but easy. The woman/apples on top of the tree feel that they are unloved, but that is not true!’ Your thoughts? Let me know!”

10. The Cheesy Pick Up Line Guy

Just like the quotation/poetry guy, cheesy pick up line guys aren’t as far off from being totally lame. Why do these guys think that rhyming and making lame jokes is the way to a girl’s heart? Seriously?

What he would usually say:

“Hey baby… Can you give me your number? I think I lost mine ;)”

“I think I seen you before in my dreams. It’s crazy that I’m seeing you here!”

11. The Copy-Paste Guy

You think to yourself, “What a nice guy!” and then you realize that the message does not make sense. Now, this guy, well, he likes to copy paste his message and send it to all the girls that he comes across online. You know it’s a copy pasted message because of all the nice, grammatical error-free message which seems every much scripted.

What he would usually say:

“I admire how you describe yourself. You are unique and interesting. Your profile shows that you are such a great girl. I would like to get to know you. Please say yes. I am waiting for you. Always, Dan.”

(Funny to be getting this message when I didn’t even put any description of myself on my profile; just a photo.)

12. The Soul Mate Guy

He is searching for a soul mate and he has finally found it in you. You are his soul mate. There is no doubt about it. This guy is freaky.

What he would usually say:

“Dear Jasmine, I have found you! My soulmate! I have been searching for you all my life! We are perfect for each other! You are funny and sweet and I love that about you. Please, let’s talk and get to know each other. You will realize that I am for you and you are for me.”

“I am only looking for one thing on this website; my soul mate. I know she is right here somewhere. I can feel it. If you feel the same way too, talk to me. I am waiting!”


Found your guy yet?

Sorry if I’m only experienced in terms of guys. If you’re a guy and you want to know about how girls are, I think these are somewhat similar. I belong to the funny-witty category, just in case you’re wondering ;)

And all of the ‘What he would usually say’ are based on my own personal encounter with profiles and messages from them.

So, who’s up for some online dating?
