I get messages from men who fail to have a complete profile.Every thing says "tell you later". Do they honestly expect me to respond to them when they dont tell anything about who they are or what they are looking for? Im not much interested in what they look like, but a little info sure would go a long way. YES I do realize that women do the same thing BUT this is "Ask A Guy" , so Im asking. Im not generalizing or saying every single man does it so PLEASE dont jump on me for that. Im asking a general question nothing dark or sinister, JUST a question.

Maybe they will fill it in later or they feel that if they say their a nice person no one will believe them, just a thought. I know when I look a woman's profile and it says nothing, I say hi and see where it goes from talking. I've made good friends with people that didn't have anything written down. I do perfer people write something down.

I think for the most part, guys want INSTANT gratification.. the less effort to get what they want the better.. Could be that SOME really just don't know what to say.. some don't spell very well and don't want to look stupid..
Those are MY opinions..

I think there are two reasons. If they just joined within the last couple days (check their joined webdate date) they might want to search to see if they like the site before investing time in the site. Or if they have been a member for a while and their profile isnt filled out they probably arent looking for anything serious. At least that is my opinion.

I filled mine out fairly well almost immediately, after groping my way around most of the site, deciding if I wanted to play or not. I have decided to stick around for a while, after my first couple of non-working days, so I have now filled everything out about as much as I am ever going to. :D

I dunno - mebbe I put in too MUCH detail, but imho, if you don't ask, you are not going to receive.

If your a man you will see many women do exactly the same as your saying men are doing.I get tons of emails from women that don't have shit filed out on their profile.its mostly spam.#1: They don't have even one single photo...#2: They OFFER their Yahoo & REAL women do not do that.Years Of Being on the net for me to know that...#2: REAL female profiles to not type more then 1 sentence.this three facts is the basic facts that its a spammer or scammer.But even a mail that i believe to be a REAL Female still never or rarely ever has anything on their profiles.I just delete the mail received from them & sometimes even block them.I have to time to talk to GHOST.REAL OR NOTHING!

I Can't help but feel my profile out way to much.I'm a very interesting man.

A male basher i see.trying to say "MEN" in general can't spell right.Its not a male or female thing that men or women can't spell right.Its an individual thing.

also its nothing to do with sex's when it comes to having or not having a persons profile filled out.that's an individual choice also.

I can see some of both sexes having something to hide. Some experts say don't tell all at once.

Another possibility is that some answers can't be a simple choice or a yes or no answer and need explaining. Such as "did you read the paper today?, yes or no?" Would skimming the TV listings be a yes or no? The true literary would say no. The lawyer would say yes.

I'm not from your area and not trying to impress anyone. I like to not stress over a possible profile. Hopefully the persons involved would eventually feel comfortable enough to answer more questions the more each got to know each other. If on the other hand, someone has a lot of people wanting dates, then I guess they can afford to be very picky.

That's what kills me....I have a full fairly detailed profile.....It actually use to be longer and yet I've had little to no luck on here and can't ever remember a girl emailing me first. I guess the answer is some people are lazy and others have just come to the conclusion that they're never going to find anyone here anyways.

I think personally the reason is that the guys are afraid of rejection. The ones who dont usually fill out the profiles are the same guys who can be surrounded by women and not talk to any of them. It opens the possibility for rejection and their self-esteem gets slammed. I've noticed a lot of profiles on here and other places that say "all the right things" that guys think women want to hear. What the guys dont realize is she will notice you more if you tell her all about you and can deal with the rejection and just move on if she is not what you want.
