How Honest Should You Be In Your Dating Profile? 13 People On What Theirs Would Say If They Told The Truth
Jacob Lund/Fotolia

When it comes to dating, we often think that honesty is the best policy. We know that we should be open about who we are as people and let those that we're dating either take it or leave it. I used to think that there was no such thing as too much honesty. I used to think. But a new AskReddit thread has me wondering if that's really the case.

People took to Reddit to share what their honest dating profiles would say. You know, not the "I love going out! I love staying in! I make the best chocolate chip cookies and give blow jobs that will make you brain melt!" type of profiles. Instead, sharing the honest, not dressed up opinions of themselves. For example, mine might say "Sex writer who regularly puts on clothes inside out, doesn't wash hair for a worrying amount of time, and is never without 34 bags of partially eaten dried mango in my purse. Also emotionally constipated."

Yours might say something different. But if you take a look at what these folks on Reddit had to say, you're bound to feel better about your dating hangups. Really. Check out what they had to say about their honest dating profiles— because things got dark in a hurry.
