I don't find that hokey, but I find stating it at the beginning of your profile hokey.
The word "hokey" is also hokey.

- The smoking is turn-off, but good for you for trying to quit & being honest about it
- Leaving some stats out like "relationship type" & "religion" makes you wonder in a bad way

- "What I'm doing with my life" section is very vague. Try some specifics. I'm NOT talking about your job - what is your passion, your motivation, your interests? What gives you meaning? You mention some of this later on, but some may not keep scrolling.

- The "Favorites" section is the first place I get any real sense of who you are. The "Typical Friday Night" section is also way more interesting than the self-summary which is not gripping enough to compel you to scroll down. It's sort of goofy & odd, but not enough to be striking or exciting.

Generally, you sound like a cool guy, but not enough of a "definite energy". I disagree with others about your opinions on books & music, etc. Those are the few areas there is a clear personality. I think it's better to alienate some in order to attract someone who is truly compatible, but then I'm terrible at dating .
Thank you Ms. Orangeapple I will fix the self-summary and heed your other advice.

This thread is a follow up thread to another thread I made where I was vetting online profile pics. They sucked so I took the pics down. If you are curious to know what I look like you can go to that thread or I can just tell you according to posters on here I look like a zombie-Frankenstein.

Smoking is something you can and should stop. It's a habit, not a permanent character attribute.

I have nephews who introduced me to Takis so every so often I'll buy a bag.

Here is a funny video done by a local radio station in California. You will like the guy he is Psycho Mike and most women consider him certified hot and funny. Watch it and you too will be updated regarding the Hot Cheetos/Taki phenomena in California.

Hot Cheetos - YouTube
i am also a so cal native in this area and i have never heard about this ban. i think the video is funny, but it bothers me that he was doing this with young kids. i hope their parents were aware beforehand. (i'm sure they were). i wouldn't want some strange guy doing this with my son. but it is funny.

His profile makes him sound like he's trying for something that could lead to something serious. He doesn't state he's seeking casual hook-ups (near the bottom is says what kind of relationship the person is seeking).
