Yesterday, we wrote about a Toronto resident who sued her former employer, a dating web site, for alleged wrist injuries resulting from writing about a 1,000 fake dating profiles in three weeks.
For those of you wondering if the dating profile you’re staring at on your iPad while you read this article on your iPhone is fake, check out these potential clues that it’s fake:
1. The profile pic looks a lot like when you dressed up in drag for Halloween last month, and the person has all the same interests as you. Clearly you’ve been punked by your prankster friends! It’s your picture, dummy! How drunk were you that night? And if the answer is “in a drunken stupor like the Mayor of Toronto,” we trust you’ve learned a valuable lesson here. You may be qualified to be the mayor of the fourth largest city in North America.*
2. The person lists their interests as Miley Cyrus choreography, fashion, and etiquette. Nobody is interested in any of these things, even though the news and Saturday Night Live might have us believe otherwise!
3. The potential dater’s interests include: being someone’s prince charming, and throwing Mufasa off a cliff. Don’t be fooled by that charming accent! (Although congratulations for being able to read accents in dating profiles!)
*sorry, if you live in the fifth largest city in North America, Chicago. But don’t be glum, you could still be President of the United States or the biggest talk show icon in TV history!
Tune in tomorrow, Thursday, November 14, at 3 p.m. to see the final installment in this series!
