In the previous section, we showed you how to select great photos for your profile.
Now it's time to write a kick-ass bio that describes how awesome you are!
If you look at these terms carefully, you’ll see the theme is they evoke an attractive picture in the mind’s eye of the reader.
Some stereotypes hold true in the online dating sciences, namely men falling in love with what they see and women with what they hear. Paint the portrait of yourself with words that attract the opposite sex.
Here is some helpful advice and a few valuable tips: 1) Be Different - Most Profiles Look Exactly the Same!
The #1 mistake that people make when making their profile is that they write the EXACT SAME things that everyone else does!
We just want you to see where they are and what they look like.
If you’re not totally boring (and we’re guessing you aren’t), you want something more interesting than just some variant of “hello,” but you aren’t sure how to distill your entire personality into one phrase or sentence.
The lesson here is to put the good things about you at the forefront. Disclosing your interests makes for effortless conversations and paints a clearer picture of the type of person you are. According to a study from Ok Cupid and Match.com, it’s best if some of the interests below are included because it’s what the popular online dating kids do.
So if you’re interested in optimizing your profile and beating out the competition right off the bat, a catchy dating headline is absolutely essential to piquing a woman’s interest and getting her to click on your profile instead of the other guy’s.
On POF and Millionaire Match, headlines are almost impossible to miss in her search results, so yours needs to make a good first impression.
90% of profiles feature the same cliche phrases like: "I'm a hard-working guy who is looking for a nice girl." "I enjoy hanging out with my friends." "I'm an easy-going, fun person." DON’T DO THIS!
Although there's nothing inherently wrong with these sentences, you should avoid using them if possible, since so many other people have them on their profile.
