You're Making Mistakes in Your Online Dating Profile
According to the Huffington Post, you may be making mistakes on your dating profile. How will these mistakes affect you? It’s easy to tell, just consider what you look for when searching other users’ profiles. Writing a dating profile is more or less like writing an advertisement and therefore you will need to portray yourself in the best light.
Consider Your Profile Picture
This should go without saying, particularly in this day and age. Almost everyone has the capability to take a picture, and a good one at that. Grainy or dark pictures are not going to go down well and will likely scare some people off! To get the best kind, dating expert Jeffrey Platts states that you should get a friend to do it.
You’re Boring People
A picture can draw people in, but once they get to the fine print (especially if there’s a lot of it), you need to make sure that they aren’t bored. “Down-to-earth” and “laid-back” people are very common on dating sites and after a while they all start to sound the same. "That pretty much describes 99 percent of singles," said Platts. Therefore try to be a little different, or even try and get a friend to help you out.
A Forgettable Username
What’s in a name? Well, a lot, apparently. Names like ‘HotGuy123’ and ‘CoolChick32’ are not going to stay in someone’s head long. "Look, I know that as more and more people sign up for online dating sites, the good usernames get swapped up but there's still room for creativity and personality," say Platts.
So, if you want to avoid scaring, boring or making people forget you, it’s a good idea to literally ‘spice up’ your dating profile. Try to think outside the box a little, or even consider what other people may be looking for in a potential partner. Thinking like that can often lead to much better results.
