Setting up an online dating profile is the first step to bagging yourself a date.
From profile pictures to private messages and poking, there are some things you should consider when creating one, to avoid giving the wrong impression and making potential new partners run in the opposite direction.
When writing about yourself on your profile page it is worth taking a few moments to think about exactly what you want to convey.
Rambling away about every part of your life as though you are appearing on This is Your Life should be avoided, as people will be overwhelmed by the amount of text and are likely to not read it all.
Instead, put down some key points - and importantly, interesting ones - to encourage potential dates to get in touch and find out more about you. As so often is the case, less is more.
You should also consider what it is you are looking for in a date. Of course, it pays to be open-minded, so listing desired height, eye colour and collar size is not recommended, but including any hobbies or interests you have, or the kind of thing you are wanting in a relationship will mean you won't be bombarded by unsuitable candidates.
When writing your profile, consider the choice of words and tone. Saying you are 'looking for some fun' or not seeking 'anything serious' to some people could just mean you are not yet seeking a long-term partner, but for others it could conjure up an altogether different opinion of you.
Uploading a profile picture is also very important and a head and shoulder shot is usually best.
Avoid overly edited or grainy pictures and make sure you use a flattering, but recent, picture. While a black and white picture of you resembling someone from Dallas might generate interest initially, in the long-run it is unlikely to lead you to your dream new partner.
