I’d make sure that every sentence focused on what the reader—your future boyfriend or girlfriend—could expect when dating you.
The end result would be a profile that read like a good article or book jacket instead of a dating ad, and when someone reached the end of it, they’d want to read more and contact the person.
When stumped with coming up for a story for one of your adjectives, like “thoughtful,” just think of the best/most memorable/most unique things you did for exes.
If you’re really stuck, you can always ask friends to remind you.
Many guys wrote more than a typical “Hey, what’s up? ” I knew they probably hadn’t read my profile and sent the same three-word question to everybody. I used to be strict with my dating parameters about age and would want a guy who was a couple years younger or older.
” email and asked questions about specific things I’d mentioned in my profile, like where to find Chicago-style pizza in L. 3) I became a better dater ( think) and more discerning. (And, hopefully, no one was answering them.) I also started paying more attention to guys’ profiles and looked for specific examples and stories that demonstrated their character versus just glossing over them. But when I added a few years onto each end—I opened myself up to more dating options.
If you're not comfortable putting your picture up online, avoid overselling your appearance with dubious claims like "Sharon Stone look-alike." I started my magazine personal with: "Curvy, almond-eyed writer, fit (good shoulders)...." My husband says he was attracted to the soft sell of the description and the quirky confidence of the assertion.
