    Putting Together the Perfect Dating Profile

    If you want to make the most of online dating the first thing you need to do is to put together a profile that stands out.  First impressions are everything, you want those that look at your profile to want to learn more about you and make the effort to reach out and contact you.  If you haven’t been getting any hits on your profile then let’s go over putting together the perfect dating profile.

    Who Are You

    Your dating profile should say something about you, more than just your name and age.  You need to tell people about you and what makes you tick, what your interests are and what your best qualities are.  Are you funny or serious?  Do you like to read or go to the theater?  These are just some of the things to include on your profile.

    Are You Real

    One of the biggest complaints of online dating sites are the number of fake profiles that are on there.  There are two reasons for that, the first is the site is trying to make it look like there are more members than there are and the second are because of scammers or frauds.  A real photo that shows your face with no other people, props or anything else.

    Be Kind

    If you have ever viewed profiles on a dating site then you know some of them make the person seem like a bit of a jerk.  You can avoid that, avoid negativity and sarcasm.  If someone messages you politely then be polite back even if it is to say you’re not interested.  Keep your profile positive focusing on the things you like rather than the things you dislike.

    Grammar and Spelling Count

    Check your spelling and read over what you have written, it shows that you pay attention to detail.  A profile that has a ton of misspelled words, glaring grammatical errors making you look like you lack intelligence.

    Be Authentic

    When you are discussing your hobbies and interest list things that you are doing now, you can even include photos showing you doing the things you love.  It shows that you are a real person who is genuine.  A good profile gives potential matches  a clear impression of who you are and it will make it easier to connect with people who share your interest.

    Take the time to fill out your profile completely, think about your responses.  Be yourself and be authentic.
