Valuable tips that will improve your online dating profile


When dating online, the profile you create on a dating website is your most powerful tool. Because people can’t see how you are in real life, you rely entirely on how your profile presents your own person in the eyes of others. So, if you want to increase the chances of meeting people, even meet your better half, you need to invest a considerable amount of time and effort in the making of your profile.


In case you want to make sure that you are doing it right, you may want to check the tips shared in the lines below. These valuable pieces of advice will help you come up with an incredible profile. This way, people will definitely notice you and will want to know more about you. So, here is what you need to do to make sure you have an awesome profile on a dating website:


  • Do not leave any blank areas


Although it may take you time to complete all the areas of an online dating profile, it is worth taking advantage of all the tools offered by the dating website. The more detailed your profile is, the higher are the chances for people to get to know you and be interested in you. In other words, make sure you complete every single spot that profile has. Don’t upload just 3 photos if the profile allows you to upload up to 7 photos. Use all the available slots and take advantage of every small detail offered by the website in its attempt to help you meet new people and potential dates.


  • Avoid dishonesty at all costs


While it is true that you may want to impress people, using lies to do that is never a good idea. People love honesty and if they find out that you’ve been lying to get their attention, you’ll never hear from them again. Besides this, your reputation may get hurt, if the words spread that you are a liar. You’re not a perfect person, but who is? So, instead of attempting to lure in dates with dishonesty, it’s best if you let them discover your true self. You’ll have much more to gain if you adopt this strategy. You will eventually find out that people appreciate an honest person than one that is trying to be perfect from all points of view but lies about various aspects of his or her life.


  • Use a profile photo that shows your face


The profile photo is the first image that appears when someone is checking out your profile. So, ideally, your face should be clear and easily noticeable. You’ll have the opportunity to use artistic photos for the rest of your profile. However, it is not a good idea to use blurry images or photos that were heavily modified on your profile, as they will look suspicious. People will believe that you have something to hide and will stop wanting to know you better. See your profile photo as your business card, so make sure it is of high quality. Avoid wearing sunglasses and wearing hats. Let people see your face as it is because the right people will find you attractive. Also, try to smile and appear like a cheerful person, instead of posing rigidly, like in the even of having your ID made.


  • End your profile description with a question or challenge


Let’s say someone saw your profile and is interested in knowing you better. But, that person does not know how to start a conversation with you. So, make it easier for people to get in touch with you. This can be achieved by making sure that your profile is detailed, which will allow people to ask questions or comment on your profile. You can also close your profile description with a creative question or challenge. For instance, if you love watching movies, besides mentioning it among your preferred hobbies, end the profile like this “Go ahead and ask me what my favorite movie is.” Or you can also opt for “ What’s your favorite movie? I’d love to know.” Leave the door open for potential guests and people will step into your game.


  • Be yourself, but avoid talking about dating


In order to make sure that you’ll date the right kind of people and increase your chances of finding a match, you should always be yourself. So what if you’re a little weird? Some people will find your weirdness charming. Also, if you start dating someone, he or she will find how you truly are sooner or later. Thus, it is best to allow them to see you how you are for real, instead of dating the wrong person and risking to get your heart broken. Another great idea would be to avoid talking about dating in your profile description. Don’t mention things like “I started dating because I want to find a partner” or “Dating hasn’t worked out well so far for me, hopefully, the odds will change with this new app/website”. In fact, don’t say anything about dating at all, whether it is good or bad. Instead of using these poor lines, you could be more inviting. Better alternatives would be something like “I really enjoy laughing a lot, so if you do too then I’d love to know you better” or “Looking for someone to enjoy picnics on Sundays”.


  • Don’t hesitate to be charming and romantic


Are you the romantic type? Even if you just a small seed of romanticism in your heart, now it’s the best moment to let it grow and show. Don’t be afraid that you’ll be too cheesy because showing your romantic side will never be more glowing than on your dating profile. Believe it or not, being romantic or mentioning that you’re a romantic on your dating profile can generate up to 40% more messages from other members of the website.


Follow these tips when creating a profile on a dating website and you will definitely increase the success of your online dating endeavor. After all, you want to do your best to make sure that you meet as many people as possible, as one of them can be your perfect match.
