Successful dating profiles

After you’ve filled in your basic information, you can add more detail in the “A few words about me” and “More About Me” sections of your profile.

Use the latter to describe the things you’re passionate about such as your interests and hobbies and your favourite places to visit.

If you met an attractive man at a party, you would be showing him your best side and flirting up a storm. For some women that sounds horrid but in real life we do it all the time.

So much so that a discussion about it has been started on Advice. No more “I live life to the fullest,” “I like to paint the town red,” “I’m drama free,” “I like to take things slow,” or “I’m looking for my best friend.” Try and show a little originality.

If you wanna hang out sometimes, holler at me…” – unless you are in a fraternity, you should never come across as someone who has nothing else to him but getting drunk and leading a lifestyle devoid of any real goals or ambition.

Now, lets look at an example of a profile that will stand out through both the way they are written and their content.

He won't see the scene exactly like you do, but he is capable of visualizing the story you've created with him in it. If he can picture himself in your story, more than likely he will write to you. He doesn't need to know everything about you in this first introduction. Online, you have fewer than 10 seconds to get his attention before he moves on. Try making your profile title catchy, using activities you're involved with to create your online name. Little things like typos can be enough to make men quickly move on to someone else's profile. I wrote things about making love on a beach with my soul mate. Men have told me they see it in every woman's profile. Particularly, don't brag about your out of this world looks. Try not to make demands in your profile about salaries and how you'd like to be entertained at the most expensive restaurants in your area.

Your goal is to look unique; not the same as everyone else. Men see what you look like but if you tell them in a bragging way, they'll think you're stuck up and move on. Even guys with money don't want a woman telling them where to go and what to do.
