How to write the perfect profilePosted on: March 27, 2013 14:53:07
For many newcomers to the phenomenon of online dating, getting to grips with what makes a profile strong and attractive to fellow singletons isn't always obvious.
One of the first things you might want to do before writing your 'about me' section is to take a look at existing pages. Find a selection of profiles that grab your attention and compare them to those that are less appealing and ask yourself, just what makes you want to get in touch with that person? What makes them sound interesting? What is it that makes you want to find out more? Then, apply it to your own page.
While providing lots of detail can help potential dates get a better idea about you, it can look too text-heavy when clicking through profiles and could deter some UK singles from continuing to read on.
Instead, bullet points or snippets of information about you will leave people intrigued and keen to get in touch to find out more. Remember, you aren't filling in a CV, you're looking for a soul mate, so always have that in mind when deciding what to include – and what to leave out.
Don't be afraid to add a bit of personality into your profile too, as it can let people know what you're really like. Read through what you have written out loud to make sure it sounds natural. If it doesn't sound like something you would say in person when describing yourself, then it might be worth reconsidering.
In contrast, some of the least effective profiles online are those with very limited information. People want to find out what you're like before getting in touch, so don't forget to fill in descriptions not only about you, but also a little about what you're looking for in a date and relationship.
Try to steer clear of cliches and broad, sweeping statements. Instead of saying you like 'listening to music', perhaps list a few genres or artists that you love or are into at the moment so potential dates can get a clearer idea.
Also, don't be afraid to edit your profile from time to time as it shows you're a keen and regular user, and could even increase your chances of being approached by a potential new partner.
