I've seen these on dating profiles & am curious about what they mean. As a hetero cis female, I am at a loss.
Most Helpful Guy
They don't want to waste their time on a woman who is playing the field and keeping them on stand-by in case her Plan A, B, C, and D all fall through.
They don't want to be used for free dinners, shopping money, rent money, a place to live, etc. I've also seen plenty of women date a guy so that they can go out without feeling like a loser, but the moment they get attention from someone they're really interested in, they'll ditch him right then and there.
They don't want you to follow the type of crap you find in Cosmo about blowing hot and cold, embarrassing him in front of his friends, coming on to other men to make him jealous, etc.
They don't want children, ex-husbands, or crazy ex-boyfriends coming out of the woodwork after they've spent a nontrivial amount of time and money on you. If there are people in your life that could significantly impact somebody's decision to want to date you, be up front about them. I went on a couple of dates with a woman (met in person, not OLD) who conveniently forget to tell me she was married until she brought me back to her apartment.
They don't want to be getting intimate with you only to find out that you have hang-ups about it.
They don't want manufactured fights. Some people are abusive and need somebody to put down. Some people just don't know how to ask for what they want and start fights to get it.2
