Emily's profile is a little more troubling. The good parts: she's cute, likes ambitious guys, and is outgoing. The bad news: she's likely staunchly liberal and seems to be well-immersed in that scene. It comes up in three answers to various questions. So, she's poltically [sic] obsessed, and that could be divisive. A more pertinent concern: she seems to rule out guys who are super trendy, muscular, gadget-obsessed (or hyper-communicative), skinny, Republican, or slick-haired. Not that I defend any of those attributes, but she takes more time excluding people than describing what she really wants. I'm wary about her. Except for the knitting part. LinkI've said it before and I'll say it again: I answered that questionnaire thinking it was something they'd use to match me up, not to quote me. We all know I'm a little more clever (and self-involved) than that. And I've been on one too many Internet dates to know that if you're not incredibly specific about what you want, you're probably not going to click. It's different when you meet people organically--then, there's at least chemistry (and I won't lie, I've even had chemistry with a few Republicans...well, ONE Republican).
