You’ll also notice a typo at the end (“that” instead of “than”).She comes off as mean, superficial, and demanding, and I’m guessing the men reading her profile think so, too.Words you shouldn’t use include “my cats”, “drama”, “girlfriends”, “retirement”, and “karaoke”.
Your main photo is the first thing men will notice about you, so it’s worth taking the time to make sure it’s perfect.
The worst thing you could do is use old photos of yourself.
In terms of group shots, you want the men to actually know which one is you, so stick to solo photos.
As for sexy pictures, you want to walk that fine line between showing enough without revealing too much. Your dating profile headline is the short phrase that usually appears next to your photo.
Studies show women who wear red in their profile photo receive more initial messages from men than women who don’t, but that’s the only thing that’s right with this pic. And avoid selfies as well as group and overly sexualized pictures — I beg of you.
See how it looks like she just rolled out of bed late for Sunday brunch with the girls? Not only are selfies way overplayed, but they really only make sense in the context of a social media site like Instagram.
Besides using the example (and don’t) above as a starting point, here are several other tips for when you’re filling out your profile information: If you aren’t as intelligent as Marie Curie or as funny as Amy Schumer, then don’t try to come off like you are. Take some time to think about what you like about yourself and make that stand out in your profile.
Everyone has their own strengths, so concentrate on those. You’ll want your profile to sound like how you would actually talk. A good idea is to have your friend write your profile while you talk to her about your interests and what you’re looking for in a man.
The woman’s About section below is charming, detailed but not too long, insightful, and funny. See how this woman said three general things about herself (don’t most women love fun and wearing dresses and want a prince charming?
) and then jumped right into what she doesn’t want in a man?
Similar to the “just checking this out” headline above, coming off like online dating is chore to you will be a turnoff to men.
