Put your profile into Word and use your computer spell check for peace of mind.
In a recent poll, we found that 96 per cent of people would rather see a big, happy grin in a profile photo than a sexy pout. One of the most frequent complaints about online dating profiles is “they may have looked like that once but they certainly don’t look like that now”.
‘Women have a tendency to write too much because we enjoy reading long profiles. Imagine you are doing an icebreaker introduction where you have to sum yourself up briefly.’ Most people want to find someone who can make them laugh, so show people you have a sense of humour.
If you can make someone laugh, it’s a great icebreaker and could get your conversation off to a great start.
It is something you have to write on many dating sites, though, so hopefully you’ve picked up some ideas.
If you’re still completely at a loss for what to say, borrow some famous words.
If you look at these terms carefully, you’ll see the theme is they evoke an attractive picture in the mind’s eye of the reader.
Some stereotypes hold true in the online dating sciences, namely men falling in love with what they see and women with what they hear. Paint the portrait of yourself with words that attract the opposite sex.
If they don’t and it’s still funny, you look like you’re funny and original. Apparently people who talk about relationships and love find relationships and love.
A study by researchers at Queen Mary University of London shows men like women whose names draw to their physical attractiveness, while women like men whose attributes are showcased as intelligent, cultured, brave, and altruistic.
I would say this means owning what you are — all of it — because confidence receives 23 percent more responses.
So it only seems logical you would use the good old Internet for finding that special someone, too. Sometimes they know you better than you know yourself.
Even if you do like “walking on the beach” or “drinking wine in front of a roaring fire” leave it out – everyone says that.
