No one’s saying you can’t enjoy these things, but everyone does. We would love to read an online dating profile that states “Hi, I’m Janet and I love to cry.Find a way to package and explain that in a creative, engaging way. Before we depart on this illegal odyssey perhaps we should figure out what kind of crime we will be getting our kicks to. Or perhaps breaking and entering is your date of choice. If you love to cry as well, please reach out so we can cry together.’’ Saying you love to laugh is like saying you love oxygen. We should stop announcing it as if it makes us unique and be a bit more imaginative. Same problem as 'partner in crime.' You’re clearly not working hard at coming up with your own words to describe yourself.Can’t you ‘write hard’ and put a little effort into your profile? If you reject me, I will hound you to the end of the earth… But it does hint at emotional neediness.) We are all looking for a good match, and that person who makes you laugh and lights your fire, but in the 21st century it sounds a little naive to be talking of soul mates.People who need to describe themselves as crazy, zany, or any of the above are usually none of those things.Show people that you are fun by talking about your interests and what makes you tick.Simply describing yourself as crazy just makes you seem the opposite.Emma Wells has been writing professionally since 2004.
Don't worry if you have 'two left feet' - I spent six years training at the Gangnam-Style School of Dance, and can teach you how to do the hokey pokey for a nominal fee.

Sarah Beeny, founder of My Single and TV personality, explains that using tired, dating clichés are not going to make your profile and you stand out, and ultimately could hamper your love life.
She said: 'Your dating profile is a vehicle for showing what makes you different, why someone should choose you compared with the thousands of other people available. Show people what makes you special and you are much more likely to find someone who you can really click with.'Sarah has teamed up with her in-house dating experts to compile a definitive guide of dating clichés many people have most likely been guilty of peddling, should definitely avoid and what they really tell you about someone. Great to see that you are a balanced human and have such ‘varied’ interests that span staying in and going out, but it’s hardly original.
Often, when someone says “so, tell me about yourself,” your mind goes blank.
The options are so vast that it may be difficult to choose which details you might share with a new acquaintance.
