How to Write a Profile on a Dating Site?
For the first time in your life, you have decided to register on a dating site. You are wondering how to fill out your profile. And you are right to give importance to it. In business jargon, we say: ‘You never get a second chance to make a good first impression, and everything is done in 20 seconds to arouse the positive or negative feelings of the other person, especially on the Internet, where competition is fierce, and decisions are made very quickly.’
So you understand the importance of optimizing your profile. With this discovery in mind, we are going to give you our tips for developing your popularity rating and finding love quickly.
Introduce Yourself on Online Dating Sites
Online dating can be a great way to meet new people, but it can also be a little intimidating. It can be hard to know how to start introducing yourself to potential dates, but there are a few things you can do to make it easier.
Think about what you want to say. When introducing yourself, you want to give people a sense of who you are, but you also want to be interesting. You don’t want to just say, ‘Hi, my name is John, and I like to play soccer.’ You want to add a little bit more to your introduction.
You can also think about how you want to say it. Do you want to be funny or serious? Casual or formal? You can experiment a little to see what works best for you.
Once you’ve got your introduction ready, you can start posting it on different dating websites. Be sure to read the profiles of the people you’re interested in, so you can mention something that you have in common.
And finally, be patient. It may take a while for people to respond to your introduction, but don’t get discouraged. Keep posting, and eventually, you’ll find someone who’s interested in getting to know you better.
Step 1. Choose your nickname well
This is what we are going to see first, with your photo, whose good definition is important. If you want to maximize your chances of visibility in this wild mass of profiles, you’ll have to activate your brain and use your imagination to stand out and arouse curiosity! Your nickname must not be too basic or too weird.
That is to say that you must show originality! It should set the tone and describe you in one word. If you really can’t think of an original idea, don’t bother; it’s better to keep it simple and real than weird. Be careful; for security reasons on the web, never use your real name or any other personal data.
Step 2. A photo MUST be taken and of good quality too!
Let’s not fool ourselves. Yes, physical appearance is important, especially on the Internet, where there is a lot of competition, and no one knows you. Imagine it’s like if you were looking for an apartment. If the photos are not attractive and representative, you won’t want to go any further.
And if you decide not to put any pictures, it’s a waste of time! So put all your assets on display and take a recent photo (it goes without saying), clear and sharp of your best profile to dazzle your future conquests so that they only see you.
Step 3. Description
It would be a mistake to say too much or too little, so it’s hard to appreciate. Writing your description will take a little time. First, you need to do your introspection to identify your search criteria, both what you want and especially what you absolutely do not want. Your message must be representative of your personality, your hobbies, and your motivations in order to attract to you the profiles that correspond to you.
No need to write a novel; a few sentences are enough (usually 400 words max), and we’ll even tell you, don’t reveal everything in order to arouse curiosity. Then you’ll have plenty of time to develop your profile. Very important to stand out! It is in the first sentence that you will arouse or not the interest. You can also use the ultimate weapon of seduction: humor!
Step 4. The little details that kill
Some details that may be insignificant to you will literally harm your profile:
- A completely weird nickname, like a childish or boastful one.
- An unnatural photo retouched to death or a pathetic photo with a scowling face or a weird situation (yes, we don’t all have the same sense of humor!)
- Spelling mistakes (especially for women).
- Telling your problems in the description. Don’t forget that you are in the process of seduction, so always think PO-SI-TI-VE!
Myths: in this game, you will quickly become disappointed because sooner or later, you will tire your contacts, which will eventually get tired of you, and it will be well done for you!
Be careful! Never give out your name, your personal address, or any other sensitive information, and don’t forget that on the web, you don’t know who you are dealing with! So take it easy, and be careful.
