A good dating profile for women
Does your profile sound like someone who likes to have a good time? “I’ve tried online dating before and it didn’t work, but I’m trying it again.” Or “I’ve had a lot of challenges and hardships over the last 20 years and now I’m ready for a change.” Or “I’ve devoted my life to my children and caring for my elderly parents…now it’s my turn.” Again, this all may be true, but it’s important to let your prospective match know that spending time with you will be enjoyable…otherwise why would they want to contact you?When was the last time you read a man’s profile and thought “Wow, he sounds like he really needs me to cheer him up…I definitely want to meet him!It often goes something like this: “I spend my days as a busy lawyer and my evenings teaching courses at the local college.Many weekends are spent training for my next marathon and singing in my church choir.” Whew!” Spend your initial time letting him know how you relax and enjoy yourself and how being with you will add positively to both of your lives.You can roll out the “heavy” information as you get to know each other.
If you make it sound like you can take it or leave it, they are likely to help you leave it. “I love spending time with my friends, volunteering and reading novels.” When a man reads this his eyes glaze over and he moves on to the next profile.
Online dating is like advertising: Know your ideal audience and target them by positioning yourself to be as appealing as possible.
Keep your product’s major flaws out of the commercial.
And once you know how it is inadvertently turning off the men who are looking for a positive, fun connection, it’s really not that difficult.
