'Drama' is too grand a word to convey the meaning of what is being signalled, which I would describe as somewhere between 'annoying personality' and 'relationship bullshit'.

    But when heterosexual men say they’re looking for something “drama-free,” I suspect they want something that doesn’t exist: a problem-free partnership with someone who has no life experience.

My gripe with the article is that I think she is reading too much into it. We're talking dating profiles here, which are at best an array of vectors that point to a personality. The musings that follow, then, are truisms that don't really add much.
