Not getting any responses to your online profile? More reasons why. … [Read More...]
Online dating is a great way to meet someone new, but one step daters sometimes struggle with is the profile. What to write? What to leave out? Here are some tips especially for the gals.
Write a Paragraph That Shows Your Personality
Instead of a list (such as “I like horse shows, football games, and French food”) add more description to it. WHY do you like these things? (“My favorite weekend days are spent making some great French food so the house smells awesome, then I can sit back and watch the game. There’s nothing better than an afternoon of football where I can yell at the top of my lungs – in the comfort of my own home, of course.”)
The more description you give something, the more your personality comes through. The way to attract someone to you is to show off all those fabulous qualities that make you who you are.
Post a Great Picture
Make sure your headshot shows your smile and face clearly. Watch what you wear, this isn’t the time for sexy outfits. A taste shirt or sweater with a lovely smile will go a long way combined with a descriptive essay.
Don’t Judge Too Harshly
You have to realize that some guys just aren’t as good at getting the details of themselves up on their profile. So if the guy has a stupid picture, or says something incredibly dumb in his essay, try and put it in perspective. Email with him a bit before writing him off. Remember that profiles are just an introduction, you’ve still got to go through the hard work of meeting someone to see if you really like him.
