I think we could all come up w/ our own list of overused phrases.

I hate it when men say they want a woman who could be comfortable in jeans and a little black dress--for the most part, women are better at dressing appropriately for events than men are.

I didn't read the article, but I can guess what the phrases are. And this is one of the reasons I'm not doing OLD now, and maybe never again. How many times can you read:

1. I like to stay in or go out

2. I'm just an easy going guy who enjoys life and likes to laugh

3. I'm comfortable in jeans or a tux

4. I work hard and play hard

5. I like all kinds of music/movies/books

6. I like to travel

The fact is, most people are really bad writers. It's obvious they don't spend a lot of time crafting their profile, or seeking help in writing it. But again, people who truly can't write are at a huge disadvantage, they can't help it I guess. And then, there are the pathetic photos.

I've only actually tried the online world briefly but have always enjoyed looking at them since it's like a mini reality TV series. I think it's hilarious that the author thinks that the word "passion" should be used more. Around here, 90% of the women use that word but it's like Mad Libs - they put the word in for anything. I'm waiting for someone to complete it all by writing "I'm passionate about being passionate."
