It’s interesting how, with certain patterns, you can make a great online dating profile.I spoke with Whitney Perry, the founder of the Single Online Dating Guide, who shared a great analogy.If you are wearing a dress that has zippers up the side, you can show what the dress looks like in a different way to different people by zipping it up a bit. The same thing is true for online dating profiles. With different profiles you can show a different side to different people. Maybe your body is a little softer in some photos, or you are extra shy and don’t like the camera or you have a weird-looking nose, or maybe you are cool in person but not so much on paper. When you show a different side to your online dating profile, people get a better impression. Your profile is less like a resume and more like an item you are trying to sell. So, unless your marketing team is a super awesome, skilled team, online dating profiles should only show what you like. You are trying to get out of a space where people are going to feel the need to make assumptions about who you are. And if they do, they are wrong. You don’t have to have an amazing job, amazing car, or money, and you don’t have to be super outgoing, friendly, smart, attractive or wear a dress that reveals a lot of skin or be a brunette.Read More
It’s not your duty to give the world your business, and it’s not your job to show the world who you are, even when you know they are going to make assumptions about you.Let the world make assumptions about you, not about you.You can simply give people information.If you know someone is going to say they can’t get out of a relationship, don’t even write a profile.
It won’t matter if your online profile is great or bad if no one knows who you are and you are just saying the same thing over and over. If you can give information and, more importantly, if you can give more detailed information with your online profile, you are going to be a better prospect. You are not going to waste their time with things they don’t even need.
When people aren’t sure who you are or what you want, they will assume the worst. If they think you are self-centered, disrespectful, or are going to leave, then they will never get to know you and you will be wasting their time.Read More
Not saying you aren’t going to leave a relationship or don’t have self-awareness, but it’s a lot easier to leave when you give people information. You can show the world you are getting out of a relationship, but show them the reasons you left and the path you took to get out. If you can give enough information to make someone understand why you were leaving, the online dating profiles are a great starting point.
If you are a guy, think about the information you give. How you are going to make the woman understand why you left. Be open, honest, and willing to share everything you are going to do next. No one wants to read something where you say you are getting out of a relationship but don’t really know.Read More
