How to Create a Perfect Online Dating Profile
Creating an online profile is not just about attracting a lot of girls, it’s about attracting the one girl you want onboard in your life. So, this should not be a thoughtless process. On the contraire, you need to really give it some thought, what you write and how you write it are like your presentation letter, your resume, the premise for girls to decide whether they want to meet you or not.
Hence, if you’re thinking about putting yourself out there and creating an online profile, then you are definitely going to want to read this article first!
Opposite to meeting someone in person, online dating allows little time to charm girls that might match what you’re interested in. You have a limited amount of characters to tell your story, you’ll have to make a wise pick.
How can we help you start contacting and meeting the right people? We’ve done some research and have put together some key recommendations for you. We want to make sure your profile really works and deliver the results you are expecting.
Composing your profile, who are you?
Women want to see how man describe themselves so try to add as much “valuable” information as possible. Think of descriptors that might sum you up for real. And avoid leaving anything blank, this would be seen as a lack of interest and it may discourage prospects, also you need to make it easy for people to reach you so make sure you fill in all contact information.
Use challenge as a hook. Post comments that serve as an invitation for prospects to start a conversation with you and be honest about who you are and what you are about. Here goes an idea, if you post a picture of you cooking, you could add a comment like – “Ask me what I am cooking tonight.” This is going to make other cooking fans interested and it will be a great conversation starter.
Avoid writing about the negative. It’s not about hiding important facts, but about phrasing them in a positive context as opposed to writing negatively.
For example, instead of writing “Don’t contact me if you like alcohol and drinking”, you could say “I am all about keeping a healthy body and life”.
Create a powerful photo gallery
Your pictures are a glance of your lifestyle and personality, remember that “an image says more than a thousand words”. Add shots of the things that you are most passionate about. Whether you are into outdoor sports, traveling or reading. Combine your personality traits, your hobbies and provide a “worth meeting” type of view of you.
Sharing what you are about will not only make your profile most attractive to females who might be fun of this but also, these make great openings.
But one thing first, scan the picture you are thinking about posting thoroughly, check your face, your smile, your hair, your pose and the background. Sometimes people post pictures that they believe they look well in without being mindful of the hecatomb behind them sabotaging their picture. Also, this is your profile, so it is best to stay away from group pictures or at least those where you are not the leading character.
And don’t hide your face in your profile photo. This inspires suspicion. You want people to be comfortable with you and to be able to find you when you finally meet!
Follow a simple structure, write in blocks
Writing all information together as one humongous paragraph fitting in all you that think might make you look good is definitely not recommended. If you want people to read your profile you need to make it easy for them to do so.
Break your information into chunks, give it a flowing structure.
Add a couple of paragraphs about you, talk about your interests, your hobbies, your passion.
On another paragraph you could talk about your career, your lifestyle or family dynamics. And finally, add a block to talk about what you are looking for, what type of companion are you looking to meet.
When describing your ideal partner don’t get all fairy tale princess, be specific but open to the possibility that who might be your best match might not necessarily be exactly how you were expecting. Leave some room for magic!
One last recommendation…engage!
You took the first step and created a profile but don’t just sit to wait for people to find you. You need to engage, talk to people, be active and proactive, that’s what the whole thing is about. Avoid sending generic and random comments. Really look into profiles and make strategic comments that gets attention, people sometimes get so many “Hey there” that they just ignore them.
If you want to get replies and eventually meet ups, you need to do your homework. Scan the profile to find conversation points, write a smart and correctly written comment, it’s hard to resist to this approach.
