Online Dating Profile: Do’s and Don’ts
May 29, 2013
It was only a few short years ago that online dating was looked upon with disdain; the relationships that stemmed from it unnatural and doomed to failure – because if you can’t connect with people in the real world, what hope is there for you and your partner?
According to the 35 million people signed up for Match.com and eHarmony and the approximate hundreds of thousands of marriages resulting from online dating every year, it just ain’t that way.
When it comes to dating in these modern times, all of these people will tell you that it’s a fuss- and rejection-free way to play the field – all while meeting even more people than they would with traditional dating.
Check out our tips on how to stand out from the rest;
Get in the mood
While we’re not asking you to be grinning while you type out your personal details, we highly suggest you be in a good mood and feeling great about yourself while you describe yourself to perfect strangers – because that confidence and positivity shines through without a doubt.
While you’re tapping out your details, wear something you feel sexy in, play the music that makes you feel your best, unique self that’s bound to shine through your online avatar.
... Or don’t.
When describing your appearance however, be sure to mention your favorite part about you. Are you proud of your hair? Say so! Think you’ve got a great butt? Speak up! Do you believe you’ve got the hands of a hand model, if you say so yourself? Then by all means – say it so yourself. These kind of claims pique interests and get imaginations running wild.
Share what you love
What was the last movie that moved you or made you laugh until you cried? What album do you currently have on repeat? Which book are you reading for the third time? Answers like these say a lot more about you than you might think, and are the same kind of icebreaking topics that first date dialogues are made from.
Be specific about what you want, not who you want
But when it comes to the kind of person you want to respond to your profile, keep the parameters open to a wide number of people. Cast a wide net, and you’ll receive even more offers from suitors, leaving you with a bigger pool of possible mates to choose from, because remember, a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ is as simple and painless as a click of the mouse!
