This made me laugh. "Five 'favorite books' that are a warning sign on dating profiles" -- including anything by Ayn Rand or The Notebook ("This is either the kind of dipshit guy who puts Nicholas Sparks on his
profile to seem sensitive, or the kind of dipshit girl who falls for it."). My personal list would include On the Road (too many associations with faux-bohemian Boston University boys) and anything by John Updike or Philip Roth (too much old-man-sexist stuff).
In related news, here's why you should date a writer, and why you shouldn't.
(My faves from the NOT list:
Writers will offer you an interesting perspective on things. Yes.
Constantly. While you’re trying to watch TV or take a shower. You will
have to listen to observations all day long, in addition to being asked
to read the observations we wrote about when you were at work and
unavailable for bothering. It will be almost as annoying as dating a
stand-up comedian, except if you don’t find these observations
scintillating we will think you’re dumb, instead of uptight.
Writers will teach you cool new words. This is
possibly true! We may also expect you to remember them, correct your
grammar, and look pained after reading mundane notes you’ve left for us.)
