How to Create a Dating Profile for Success
Any profile inviting a date must have two aspects—one is ‘you’ and the other is what you look for in your date
By: Molly Rose
Both these aspects must be crystal clear in your profile.
When you register yourself on an online dating site, the first and foremost provide a catchy headline – one that can say something about you. Never introduce yourself formally like “I am Sonia and I’m 25.I am working as a writer and my likes include------“. This would very staid and unadventurous. A better way to put it would be to “I’m Sonia, a young writer full of life at 25 waiting to explore the world with someone like me”. The next step would be to write something that reveals the positive and the negative side of you.
Imagine you are on this date. Now imagine how you would like your date to know you, what would you like to know about in your date. Jot down these points. They will help you create your profile. A concrete approach would be far better and successful rather than defining yourself with adjectives that are quite abstract. If you have found a profile which you think could possibly be a wonderful person to spend time with just go ahead and initiate a harmless flirtatious advance but do not commit. Commitment means revealing your personal details like you name, address, contact numbers, etc. Try to get some feedback about your online profile. Keep assessing and reassessing your profile periodically.
Another important facet about a very healthy profile is to never allow any kind of sexual overtones to attract dates. You may end up attracting the wrong kind.
The next aspect about creating a successful online dating profile is to quantify and qualify what you are looking for in your date. Is it a long term relationship or short term? Is it marriage or just companionship?
Sites like eromance.com let you see who has visited your profile or book marked you. You can use this as a yardstick to find out if your profile is successful or not. Once you create the ultimate dating profile, sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor!
