Your name, your qualifications, your education or maybe your hobbies- these are some of the first things that strike in your head when you’re asked to describe yourself.
But, we all know that we’re so much more than our educational backgrounds and past experiences. These things don’t really show who you truly are or your personality.
Our team has researched and read countless online dating profiles. Some have been good, others, well, not too much. But along the way we’ve learned a lot a lot about what works and what doesn’t work.
We have you sorted with a few of the best suggestions to pep up your dating profiles-
Have you ever heard, a smile is contagious? Well, it sure does work that way. The power of a smile should never be underestimated, as it turns a negative or doubtful moment into something positive.
And this might turn into a great dating opportunity for you! A person viewing your profile might feel good about you and himself. People are more likely swipe on a photo of someone smiling than any other expression.
So, bring out that happy grin and say cheese! 🙂
A good sense of humour- a quality that almost everybody looks for in a partner. Pick a joke from your favourite TV show or add puns to your bio. This is something that will easily catch somebody’s attention on a dating app and communicate that you’re approachable and a really fun person to be around.
So, lady how ya’ doin’?Joey Tribbiani |F.R.I.E.N.D.S
Check your grammar
Poor grammar and spelling mistakes are a big turn off! And the best of us can make silly mistakes any time, so be careful. Double check your profile. Use a grammar checker to ensure there aren’t any faults.
Look out for those grammar Nazis!
Keep it short and crisp
Gone are the days when people used to read profiles as if they were some sort of resume’ or cover letters. Keep it simple and short. A concise paragraph is more than enough. Don’t let out every secret at once. Give in some drama and some suspense, let them text you first.
Don’t give out the whole movie sweetie.
Show them the preview and keep them interested for the climax! 😉
Think out of the box
Offer something unique about yourself. There are plenty of fishes in the sea and you’re probably not the only one out there who likes watching movies and travelling (you’re a human, we get these things). No offences to those people, but you need to stand out.
Instead, share something about yourself that fascinates other people, something that captures your personality.
Your thoughts, your perceptions change everyday from time to time and place to place. So, keep your profile up to date. Make the effort to renew your profile on a regular basis.
Also, choose recent photos. Change your profile picture every month. If you don’t have enough of yourself just ask a friend! J After all a friend in need is a friend indeed.
Tell a story
If you’ve been on an adventure, or have had some life changing experiences that are worth sharing, go for it! Share those little anecdotes. Chances are there are other people out there who might have been in a similar situation and Voila! You’ll have something to talk about.
Put your passion out there
Open upto things you’re passionate about. Maybe it’s about your dog, a book, a movie that you love your love for art or anything that fascinates you.
Let me tell you, there’s something really interesting and attractive about a person talking about their passions.
Clam down; this profile isn’t an interview on which you’ll be judged for your entire life, right? Just be who you are. Put your most authentic self out there and let the right person come to you.
