A dating profile before and after a ‘nudge’

What does your profile say about you? Here’s an example of A Little Nudge’s handiwork on a Match.com profile.

Before:

I’m a 48 yr old man who is honest, kind and easy to get along with. I like a romantic event or a simple night out on the town. Willing to explore new activities. I have an adventurous spirit, looking for someone who is looking for someone that likes to explore all that life has to offer.

After:

I’m one of those nice guys who aspires not to finish last. I like to think that hard work always gets rewarded, whether it’s running my landscaping business or trying my hand at online dating. I was born in Baltimore and grew up on the Eastern Shore, so I think it’s in my blood to like the water and blue crabs. Luckily, I put that to good use when I make crab cakes. I even invented a board game involving crabs ... just need Milton Bradley to pick it up. In my spare time, I enjoy dancing (really any kind), catching a Ravens or Orioles game (maybe they’ll actually win one day), or coming up with the next big idea. I think it’s fun to look at how something works and say, “How can I make this differently?”

I’m looking for a funny and adventurous woman who would enjoy anything from going on a run or hike with me to exploring a new place we’ve never been to fixing up a good burger at home and renting a movie. When it comes down to it, I’m just looking for that “click.”
