General statements about loving movies and Italian food won’t help you stand out from the millions of other women out there, even if you really do like those things.
However, this doesn’t mean you should write a novel about yourself or include a laundry list of things you require in a man. Even if you have your doubts about online dating and only joined because your friend made you do it, don’t mention that in your profile.
The woman’s About section below is charming, detailed but not too long, insightful, and funny. See how this woman said three general things about herself (don’t most women love fun and wearing dresses and want a prince charming?
) and then jumped right into what she doesn’t want in a man?
Similar to the “just checking this out” headline above, coming off like online dating is chore to you will be a turnoff to men.
Uploading a photo is one of the first steps is to creating your profile.
In terms of group shots, you want the men to actually know which one is you, so stick to solo photos.
As for sexy pictures, you want to walk that fine line between showing enough without revealing too much. Your dating profile headline is the short phrase that usually appears next to your photo.
Besides using the example (and don’t) above as a starting point, here are several other tips for when you’re filling out your profile information: If you aren’t as intelligent as Marie Curie or as funny as Amy Schumer, then don’t try to come off like you are. Take some time to think about what you like about yourself and make that stand out in your profile.
Everyone has their own strengths, so concentrate on those. You’ll want your profile to sound like how you would actually talk. A good idea is to have your friend write your profile while you talk to her about your interests and what you’re looking for in a man.Don’t focus on what you lack, but focus on what you can offer a man when you’re on a date and in a relationship. You shouldn’t be stuffing it with big words you never use. This will help you come across as sincere and genuine. You want to attract men who you’ll be attracted to in return, which means you need to include important details about yourself in your profile.
