Hiding his intentions
Most of the time guys try to hide their real intentions on dating profiles. Many men want a simple hookup, casual sex, friendship with benefits or whatever.

Many guys use phrases like that:
- I’m affectionate
- I’m looking for an open-minded woman
- I love cuddling
- I don’t like labels
- I’m looking for a female friend
…but in the end, most of these phrases really mean: I want an one night stand 😉
Hiding his attitude
The attitude towards women, sex and relationships is another thing many guys try to obscure on their dating profiles. Here are some interesting examples:
