Writing A Online Dating Profile – Does Your Dating Profile Suck?

“I might not be Fred Flintstone, but I can still make your bed rock!” Come on. You can do better than that. When putting together your dating profile, avoid pick up lines like the above. I have seen dating profiles with these kinds of subject lines. You have to be a lot more romantic than the above line. The above subject line is too raw. You have to bring it down a notch.

Here are some tips to help you when putting together your dating profile.

1.Do not use negativity in your profile. This is a big turn off. “You don’t need to have car keys to drive me crazy.” Or, “I may not look like much, but I am drinking milk.” “If you want me, come and get me.” Ridiculous lines in a dating profile do not work. You have to be positive in your profile because you want to make a great first lasting impression. You do not want to come across as a jerk. If you use the above lines, you will come across as a jerk.

2.Build curiosity in your profile. A terrific subject line could be, “Have you ever been to Fogo De Chao?” This is curiosity. You want that man or women to click on to read more. A dater would be curious to know what is Fogo De Chao? (Between you and I, this is a fabulous Brazilian steak house.) You can go on from there and add more. Here’s another. “Have you ever been to Utopia? Let’s experience our two minds together as one.”

3.People like to hear a short story about you in your profile. Give one just a little taste of who you are. “I am a fire fighter and I am also working on pursuing my passion to open a sports bar while still working as a fire fighter.” Daters want to read details about you. Give it to them. This will let a dater know that you are going places and you have goals.

4.Always be honest in your dating profile and display real photos of you. If you lost some weight or even gained some, have an up to date photo showing how you look today.

5.Never say your name is Wayne. Do not use your real name. Come up with a screen name that stands out and shows a little bit of your character. Also make sure you capitalize each letter in your screen name and never put numbers behind your name.”IAmForReal”,“GorgeousBrownEyes”, etc.You should get the point.

6.People like to be with winners. Bring out the self confidence in you. Walk the walk. If you are self confident in who you are, then you should not have a problem here at all.

7.Make sure you put in your profile what you can offer and the kind of person you are looking for. These tips should help in getting many responses to your dating profile. Get noticed….

Is Online Dating For Me?

Dating online is the latest and easiest way of coming in contact with the new people all around the world. It

currently occupies the largest proportion of paid up advertisement on the web. Why? because they provide

easy access to social interaction with new and interesting people. People you would probably never get a

chance to meet otherwise.

Meeting people in cyberspace is not comfortable for everyone. There are of course safety concerns. A

danger of online dating is the threat of online scams. It is not unknown for unscrupulous con artists to con lonely

people out of large sums of money, but this is very rare. There is also the chance that the person you hook

up with may be dangerous, but that possibility also exists in the bar scene or anywhere else.

The BTK killer was active in his church. John Wayne Gasey was a pillar of the community, being groomed

by influencial friends to run for city councel. I’m not trying to scare anyone away from dating all together. I

just want to stress, with normal precautions, online dating is as safe as meeting people offline.

Online dating is a actually misnomer, people don’t really “date” online, they simply meet there. The idea

of a lonely geek all alone at his computer typing away to his online girlfriend who is actually a 300 pound

transvestite is a common image that makes many people turn their noses up at online dating sites.

This image could not be futher from reality. Almost 31% of Americans know someone who has met a partner online. 15% of Americans, that’s about 30 million people, say they know someone who has been in a long-term relationship with or has married someone they met online.

Dating online, or hooking up online actually, isn’t just for teenagers and young adults. Many seniors have found it a lot less stressfull than diving back into the dating scene after the death of a spouse. Could you imagine trying to hook up with the widow of a deceased friend, or schleping out to a bar or club after years of going home to a pair of loving arms. I can’t. The ability to chat and get to know someone before you actually meet can greatly reduce the anxiety.

Not all online dating sites are the same. Some act as introduction services while others are matchmaking

sevices that focus on long-term relationships and marriage. Dating sites are simply a method of meeting

people. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

We live in a world where everyone is busy. If not on a demanding career path, then simply trying to make ends meet. Most of us don’t have the time or energy left to comb the singles bars every night or attend church socials every weekend. Those options are often fruitless for most of us anyway.

Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on your point of view, the days of marrying ones childhood sweetheart are pretty much behind us. Online dating is the new trend in social interaction. You can keep to your busy schedule and still get to know someone great.
