Theres a happy medium between too long or too short I think the biggest thing is that it reflects you and gives somebody who is browsing a whole load of different profiles something to remember you by.

While brevity ain't really my forte, my grandpa who is a very wise man once told me "consider it like a woman's skirt: it has to be long enough to cover the essentials, but short enough to catch attention."

Ha ha. Love it! I think it depends a bit on how good of a writer you are (and i'm not saying it am), but I've read a few long profiles that are fun to read because they are witty and well done. But, I think for most people Medum is the way to go.

Just enough to give the profile simple details about themselves. Have enough that would give someone an interest in you.

Hi, Justin! I think it's important that people - for their profiles, not necessarily their emotigrams, posts or messages - write in complete sentences and spell check. As someone previously stated in a thread, a profile is like a resume. And we have the ability to edit those. I think they should be as presentable as possible. Your thoughts? Chelle

I agree with people who says "medium rare" for a lady's profile laughing!

Generally speaking I prefer short ones simply because if it's too long I don't tend to read the whole thing anyway.

Sufficiently detailed in the right places and succinct everywhere else.

"Medium" can be rare...in a profile. Too little, and there's nothing presented to entice a person's interest. Too much, and I wonder whether I'd get a word in edgewise.
And yes, the stakes are great when we talking about hearts and futures.

Yes, "medium" profiles are "rare," but when I read one, I always think, "well done!"

HI Chelle, of course they should be as presentable as possible, I was speaking more about writing style more then being error free. I've seen some very long profiles that are not even broken down into paragraphs. While others have been long, but enjoyable to read.
