Finally getting the courage to create an online dating profile is a big step for many singles who are looking for love and a true soulmate. 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.
Although honesty is good, sharing too many personal details is also a bad idea. Find a balance between what to share and what not to share is a good idea, so 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.
