How to Land More Dates:
Dating Profile Tips for Guys

There are probably thousands of online articles geared towards creating the "perfect" online dating profile. There are countless "dos and don’ts", many of which we have covered in our online dating tips. However, what many singles seem to forget is that everyone is different. So when you’re on the hunt for someone new –whether it be a casual relationship or something more serious- you need to take this into consideration when writing your online dating profile. As a result, here are a few tips aimed specifically a guys trying to attract single ladies.

Really Think About Your First Impression!

First impressions count, no matter what anyone says. Your dating profile is therefore just that, but far more: it is a snapshot of who you are, and the person you are that you are trying to market. You're pitching to girls who looking for someone –in most cases "Mr. Right", though that’s not always the case! As such, combining a few key factors will up your chances of getting more visits and messages. Just a few include:

  • Persuasive language (but not negative or demanding!).
  • The right kind of images that will attract instant attention, but avoid giving an impression of superificiality.

Take a Closer Look at Language – Don't be Boring!

Being boring will make most singles run away. So, for your own sake, don’t bother describing yourself as "laid back", "down to earth" or "easy-going". These terms have been used over and over again throughout the history of online dating, aren't eye-catching and are (in most cases) lies. Other offending adjectives include "funny", "awesome", "cool"… and phrases such as "enjoys fun" and "loves to laugh" are just non-descriptors (seriously, have you ever met a person who hates fun?).

Tell a Story

As you can probably guess, being boring is one of the biggest turn-offs when it comes to your dating profile. So try to avoid lists… People will zone out and click somewhere else if you deign to fill your page with them. Instead, try to tell a story: if you like going to the gym, playing football and a range of other sports, lay it out in a story-like format.

Avoid Lying – And Don’t Exaggerate!

Stretching the truth –and most certainly outright lies- have no place on your profile. It can be tempting for guys to exaggerate when it comes to their height, but if you end up meeting someone this will be found out almost immediately. And unfortunately, a lot of girls seem to care about height. Added to this, despite the superficiality of height, your date will see the truth and may wonder about what other things you’ve been exaggerating.

Oversharing Could Be Your Downfall

Single guys getting over a bad break-up, or who don’t feel confident about being able to find a woman, need to keep that information out of their profiles. Remember, negativity is a huge turn-off and if all you do is go into deep, negative detail about why you’re single then you will scare away a lot of potential suitors.

Be Strategic When it Comes to Your Profile Pic!

Dating profile pictures are the main catch, so you need to be critical about your own images! Those looking for a long-term relationship should try to avoid pictures of themselves drinking or making stupid faces at the camera. On the other hand, those looking for a fling may want to avoid serious photos of things like church bake sales. Artsy shots can also work wonders and attract interesting people.

And of course, we would like to add…

  • Know your best angle! Everyone has attractive and unattractive sides, so try to show your best one!
  • Consider the kind of profile picture that would make you click on a profile and keep that in mind when you’re taking a snapshot.
