Online dating site profile tips
Most of us online date—but many of us don’t know how to market ourselves.After a while, all the profiles sound the same, full of similar clichés and adjectives.
In no time, all your sentences of stories will mesh together to tell your future partner how they’ll benefit from dating you versus just learning about common interests you may have.“I have been in the ——- area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people. I enjoy meeting new people and going to new places.(This first sentence says nothing eye-catching about the woman and is very bland, and boring). (still, nothing thought provoking or attractive) I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. (Finally something somewhat interesting that she says about herself).This is just further proof that it’s all about how you market yourself—the right words are everything.It is unfortunate that so many people join dating sites but so few put a fair effort into writing a really good profile that makes them stand out from thousands of other users.Pretend you’re the person who’s reading your profile. Is it more intriguing to date someone who says he/she likes “to try new things” or who “once ate jellyfish in China”?
When stumped with coming up for a story for one of your adjectives, like “thoughtful,” just think of the best/most memorable/most unique things you did for exes.
Every word counts, so you want to make sure every sentence and story is memorable. Besides, you’ll have plenty of time to share more on your actual date and during the phone calls or emails before the date.
4) Double-check that your profile will be appealing to the opposite sex and test it out—conduct your very own focus group!
I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types.
What makes any female dating profile great is the fact that it stands out from the rest of the profiles on any given online dating site. It’s not generic, neutral and overly politically correct.
The end result would be a profile that read like a good article or book jacket instead of a dating ad, and when someone reached the end of it, they’d want to read more and contact the person.
