10 Common Phrases Found In Guys' Online Dating Bios

When it comes to online dating, people try to stand out. They want to be witty, appealing, and original.

However, if you swipe enough times, you realize that most guys put the same things (or different renditions of the same things) in their online dating bios. There's nothing wrong with these things, and I'm sure there are common phrases used in girls' bios as well. These are just a few common phrases my friends and I have seen on several different occasions.

NOTE: This is all in good fun, I am not trying to look down on any of these phrases or anyone that uses them.

1. "Always down for a hike"

When did hiking become a thing? Why is everyone suddenly into hiking? Hiking takes a lot of energy. What happened to Netflix and chill??

2. "I hope you like bad boys cause I'm bad at everything"

Well that's not very confident, now, is it?

3. *Insert "The Office" quote here*

I love "The Office" just as much as anyone, but the "you miss 100% of the shots you don't take" quote is getting kinda old, don't you think?

4. "I'm 5'11 but on Tinder I'm 6 foot"

We love a Lil Dicky reference, but a majority of the guys that use this line have zero interest in pillow talk sooo.

5. Their height

This one I actually appreciate. Yes fellas, your height does matter. #sorrynotsorry

6. "420 friendly"

Or "always down to *insert leaf emoji* and chill," or just a bunch of leaf, wind, and fire emojis together. We get it, you like leaves, fire, and wind. Big nature guy.

7. *Insert Spongebob quote here*

Again, I'm a huge "Spongebob" fan, so I know there are hundreds of good quotes. But y'all wanna keep asking if mayonnaise is an instrument. Put Bubble Bass's entire Krabby patty order in there, then maybe I'll swipe right.

8. *Insert zodiac sign here*

I know this is a big thing when it comes to dating, but I just have yet to meet someone who actually dates by their zodiac sign.

9. "No that's not my kid"

This is common when guys have photos of them holding a baby or small child. I think most people appreciate the clarification that you do not, in fact, have a kid. But if you're like me and find babies and little kids absolutely adorable, this sentence comes off as a disappointment.

10. "Here for a good time not a long time"

The best for last. If I had a dime every time I saw this in someone's Tinder bio...Is this code for you're not looking for anything serious? We get it, Brad. You don't want a relationship.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
