Are you dating online, but instead of meeting Mr. or Ms. Right you’re mostly getting Mr. or Ms. Wrong? Or are you thinking about dating online but you have no idea how to get started?
I hope you’ll join me to chat about how to create an online dating profile to attract your special someone. Because you need a profile that helps you screen out the wrong ones so the right ONE can find you.
We’ll also talk about the #1 mistake most singles make and my #1 dating tip. Plus, how to choose the right online dating site, and much much more!
The key to online dating is to attract the right kinds of people. You don’t want tons of matches. You want a few good ones! Think quality, not quantity.
You want a profile that includes:
The Right Pics
Women — men are visual so your picture is the most important part of your profile. You want to look your best, but not too sexy. Otherwise, you’ll attract guys just looking for a hookup.
And guys — no pics with your kids in them or your car or your buds. You want her to notice you.
And — not too many pics.
A Catchy Headline
You want to stand out from the crowd. Your headline should tell them a little about you in a fun way. You might be a Salsa Dancing Techie or a Gourmet Cook who Loves Dogs or a Sassy CFO.
A Description that’s Uniquely You
You want to share what makes you different or special. But, you also want to present yourself in your best possible light. Think of it like a job interview. You emphasize your positives and downplay your negatives. But, most of all you want to give them a sense of who you really are.
Know your non-negotiables, but don’t lead with them. It makes you sound too negative.
Don’t overshare! And NEVER include any identifying info.
Get A Little Help from Your Friends
Have your friends read your profile to see if it sounds like you. Even better – have a friend of the opposite sex read it. They’ll know how it will come across to your “target market.”
And if you bring your online dating profile to our meetup, we’ll give you feedback! Just remember to bring enough copies for everyone. (We’ll get to as many as we have time for. :)
And if you don’t have an online dating profile, just bring yourself! You’ll get some great ideas and it’ll still be lots of fun! :)
