Do you like to have a good time, consider yourself a "real person", and are passionate about your career?  As standard questions on most online dating websites, you would think that depending on how intriguing or quirky your answers are, they would lead you one step closer to finding the perfect match. Well, get ready for your bubble to burst, Casanova. Contrary to popular belief, one of the biggest plot twists when it comes to dating is that these three answers actually share nothing about you, and therefore shouldn't be included in your online dating profile.

Dating expert Justin Kelly McClure actually reveals that using these clichés is just one of the few reasons why you haven't been able to score that first date, let alone find love on the interweb. In fact, we'd even go so far as to say these typical responses to the already bland questions on the site are totally lame. So you say that you like long walks on the beach? Well, you may want to get in line because that beach is probably overcrowded with other single people. If you're really serious about jumping back into the online dating game, drop all of those cliché sayings and just keep it real.
