Online Dating Profile

dating advice

Finally getting the courage to build an online dating profile is a big step for many singles who are looking for love. The trouble is, sometimes a profile just isn’t getting the responses or matches that you want. This can be little disheartening, but just because the fish aren’t biting doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you.

The trick is to write a strategic and optimized online dating profile. Here’s how you can do that:

Never make the mistake of looking down on online dating. There is a stigma attached to the method, but once you have that in mind the likelihood of success is very low. Singles who read a quick dismissal of the online dating world will find that a huge turn-off and click away. Do not be judgmental or condescending, you’ll never know, you might just be insulting your soulmate.

Another big no-no in online dating profiles are the lies. Even if it is just about your weight, height, or age, DO NOT lie because these lies will unravel soon enough. While making a profile, do not exaggerate the job you have thinking it will "lure" in more matches. Most of all, never make promises of commitment if you are not planning to keep it!

Although honesty is good, sharing too many personal details is also a bad idea. Find a balance between what to share and what not so that people won’t turn away at a glance. Never disclose bad first date stories or whine about your loneliness, this is very unattractive to people.

Create and write an upbeat and fun profile that highlights all the good things about getting to know new people and what you are looking for in a relationship. This is a burst of positivity and honesty that people want when they are looking for an online match.

Open Your Heart

A breakup can leave you feeling shattered, demoralized, jaded, and hopeless. We’ve all been there. Everyone has experienced at least one heartbreaking end to a relationship. The pain seems unbearable. You may think that you will never love again; and indeed may shut yourself off from the possibility.

But this is neither a good nor a healthy way to go through life. While dating and falling in life is always filled with risk you should do it anyway. Why? Because falling in love is the most wondrous and rewarding thing that any of us can experience. The pain of the breakup will eventually subside. When it does, you must recall what it felt like at the beginning. You must remember the feeling of being in an almost permanent state of ecstasy. The exhilaration of hearing the voice of your beloved, the mad anticipation of seeing them again, the thrill of actually seeing them, and the almost volcanic emotion you felt whenever you were intimate.

These are the things that make falling in love worthwhile. Denying the natural yearnings of your heart will not prevent suffering. It can only lead to loneliness and pain of another sort. You will become increasingly bitter; not because anyone has hurt you, but because of your failure to find someone to love you and for you to love.

That is why you should always keep the prospect of dating and falling in love again constantly open. No one wants to endure the suffering that comes with a bad breakup. However, even such a terribly traumatic event can do some good. It can help to strengthen your character. It can make you more sympathetic to the plight of others. It can make you a more compassionate person in general. It may even teach you how to appreciate love and its value even more than you already do.

Online Dating Pictures

One of the biggest factors that leads to online dating success is the profile picture. Uploading bad photos may result in member feeling reluctant to connect with you, even if your written profile is a perfect match to theirs. Potential matches want to have a better look at who you are and your life and this is done best through pictures.

Since your profile pictures say a lot about you as a person and not just how you look, you have to choose the best pictures to upload. Here’s how you can make a standout online dating profile with the help photos:

Post more than one photo. Let the pictures tell a story so that potential matches will get to know who you are through the photos. Having at least 4 vertical shots will increase communication and connection drastically. Try to have photos that show your interests and favorite activities to give them a better idea. Most of all, always upload recent pictures where you are smiling!

Forget about posting a group image because online dating members don’t want to take extra time to spot you from the group. Another big mistake is posting pictures with sunglasses on, people prefer to see your eyes because hiding under sunglasses looks as if you are hiding something sinister.

Bathroom selfies should also be kept away from your profile because the lighting is terrible and no one wants to see a bathroom as your background. Party pics, provocative images, or pictures where other people are blurred out should never be included in your profile as well.

Remember, these photos are their first impression of who you are as a person, always have your best foot forward or you’ll find yourself without a match, or worse get messages from people you don’t want to meet at all.
