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.
The most fascinating part about the online gabfest, however, is its unique approach to crafting headlines.
Never before has a web entity appropriated such a distinct (read: ratchet) style and voice.
I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why: I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.
“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.
Start by finding the dating site that's right for you and your budget.
Then, do your research; think about what you are looking for, and find out how to attract that kind of person.
This feature can cause some serious embarrassment if you aren’t careful (see the section “Checking how your tagline gets displayed” for the scoop). For example, say that you started your essay like 50 percent of all postings: “I’m youthful, spirited, happy, healthy . The first purpose of a tagline is to quickly say something about yourself that invites a person to look further. But what if you’re not a skydiver and not even interested in being one? A funny line can be a great icebreaker, and you don’t have to be particularly funny to write funny.
The second purpose is to create some point of further discussion — an icebreaker that provides a prospect with an easy topic to start a conversation. Try these starter ideas: • “I’m boycotting shampoo!!! ” • “Everything I need to know I got from watching Gilligan’s Island.“ • “I run with scissors.” • “Where are my sunglasses?
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.
It doesn’t describe you with overused adjectives such as “intelligent, compassionate, educated, and independent” and it is free of boring statements that say nothing such as “I am as comfortable staying in as staying out.” Rather than continue describing what a good profile is, I want to bring to your attention real examples of three actual dating profiles from on popular site that I rated for content.
Focus on the less superficial stuff, not how tall or suave or sexy you want your prospect to be.
