Creating a Great Online Dating Profile
Now, you might be thinking you knew a woman that worked with your best friend’s sister, and she had a terrible experience with online dating. There is a secret to success when it comes to online dating, and judging by some of the online dating profiles I’ve seen, not a lot of women know the secret.
Are you ready? The secret is…(drum role please)…your online dating profile.
The key to successfully finding the man of your dreams through an online dating service is by having a kickass profile. Think about it, your profile is the first thing a perspective date is going to know about you.
For my next trick, I’m going to read your mind. You are thinking ~ Gee thanks Devon! Of course I need an awesome profile, and if I knew how to do that I would.
Obviously, I’m going to tell you how! I wouldn’t leave you hanging like that.
The first step is having the right attitude. If you create your online dating profile thinking it isn’t going to work anyway, that negative attitude is going to be reflected in your profile.
Instead, tell yourself you are going to look back on this as the best decision you ever made because you are days away from meeting the greatest man ever.
Look at online dating as a new adventure…the road less traveled. I know countless women who were hesitant at first, but ended up meeting the man they had been looking for.
Your online dating profile is your chance to connect with guys who have not actually met you yet. While you want to be honest about who you are, you also want to sound fun and interesting. Focus on your positive traits.
For example, you don’t want to use your profile as a platform to explain why you’ve been single for five years or how long it has been since you were with a guy. You also don’t want to say things like “I really don’t have friends”, “I hate meeting new people”, or “I don’t know why I’m doing this.”
Everyone has less than desirable qualities. However, those are the things that people learn about you over time.
Anyway, the qualities you see as your downfalls may be the qualities he loves most about you. Don’t assume that the men you meet will see you the same way you see yourself; especially if you have a low self-esteem.
Use your online profile to promote all your amazing qualities. You can also use this as an opportunity to promote what makes you unique in a good way.
Tell him how much you love horseback riding and dancing, or your ability to pronounce any word backwards. Talk about how amazingly talented, outgoing, and fun-loving you are. Talk about what you most enjoy doing, your hobbies, and why you are the best catch you know.
You also need to be open to meeting a variety of different guys. Although having a list of qualities you are looking for in a guy is good, making that list too specific will make you seem high maintenance. It will also limit your chances of meeting the right guy.
For example, with the election right around the corner, I’ll touch on politics. You may be a stanch Democrat. However, if you put in your profile “must be a Democrat; will not date Republicans” you are likely going to scare away men of both political parties.
Anyway, being open to dating people outside your comfort zone may be exactly what you need.
Wow…I just realized how long this post is, and I haven’t even touched on your profile picture yet. I’ll talk about that in a post tomorrow.
