How to write great dating profiles
A poorly written profile looks like this: Why is this bad? While they are perfectly fine to have as interests, keep in mind women are going through dozens of matches to find someone who is right for them.How will she know that you are a more fun, in shape, beer liking guy than the next?And tipping the scale ever-so-slightly on the creepy side, similarity breeds affection, so a user named “Hot4YOU” would be more likely to respond to someone with the related handle “Burning4YOU”.
If you ask any woman what are the most attractive traits that a man can possess, most likely her answer will be, funny, intelligent, compassionate.
The six-page study goes on to offer a practical how-to for online daters including nuggets like: don’t just wink or send a generic message; keep the first missive short and sweet; be enthusiastic; and don’t keep an online paramour waiting. But consider, singles, while strict guidelines are sure to be a comfort for some in the online dating pool, love is not an exact science—and even stone-cold science needs its skeptics.
This one of the top complaints I hear from women when it comes to online dating.
So the obvious “be good looking” aside, there are a few hacks that give you a better chance of being swiped right. You should provide photographic evidence that you have friends.
You should have a “genuine smile” in your picture, one that crinkles up your eyes. It’s good if you can get a shot of you in the center of a group of people (because, Power), better if you’re a man to have a few women smiling adoringly at you (because, Desire), and best if you’re shown touching another person, but not being touched, because apparently the toucher is perceived to be of a higher status.
Let’s take a look at how we could rewrite the profile above: Why is this profile better than the previous one? First, qualifying yourself and explaining why you are fun to be around gives some context.
