If you are toying with the idea of entering the world of Internet dating, then consider just what you are going to put onto your profile page that will make the virtual world stand up and take notice. Many people find filling in their profile blurb difficult if not tedious, especially if they belong to several dating sites. But your profile is a bit like your sales page, that might seem a bit scary but potentially, that is exactly what your profile is set to do. It’s to announce that you have signed on and to give those eager other singles the chance to have a glimpse into your life.
Your online profile is the most important aspect of your online dating presence. If you are too lazy to fill in the myriad of questions that are on there or uninspired when it comes to adding some informative and accurate information about you and your life, then it’s unlikely that people are going to contact you. Why would they if the next profile is fun, charming and full of compelling information?
If you’re wondering about the importance of your profile really, take a moment to consider that you will be surrounded (virtually) by masses of other single people all looking to find their dream partner and looking for someone like you. With the right information on your profile and theirs, it’s much easier to establish likes and dislikes and passions too. It’s always fun to approach other like-minded individuals by reading their profile and to start building bonds, you can guarantee if you approach someone by email, then they will go straight to your profile and check you out. That’s why your profile has to contain compelling elements that represent you.
Always write with a positive attitude even if you are feeling a bit down at the time. Don’t write with a too opinionated attitude, there may be things that you feel strongly about but it probably isn’t going to draw lots of people towards you. There is a time and a place to be opinionated. Be honest however in what you are looking for. There is no point hedging around the point if you want a steady and committed relationship, you might as well declare it to the world, this will then hopefully, help you to avoid being targeted by those people who are only looking for a casual and intimate connection.
Don’t’ be surprised however if you still receive emails from those who might simply be attracted to the photo that you have uploaded but who won’t be up to any type of commitment. Maybe you just want to dip your toe into the water and chat for a while with no hassle about meeting up? If that’s the case, just be honest that you are looking to get to know people virtually for a while and don’t want to rush into something.
Adding lots of information about the type of music that you like can be a real conversation starter and this is because music unites people as does an interest in the same books or films. Finding common ground helps to lay the foundations for a possible meeting at some point and it makes it easier to have some natural and relaxed conversation. Write in the first person so that your personality comes across more for example: ’I’m quite tall so a tall, dark and handsome man would really fit the bill in my case’ or I’m after someone who is cute with a good sense of humour as I’m a fun loving person.
Don’t’ be scared to add a little humour to your profile as well, if you have a great sense of humour, then share it, because there will be others out there who will really find that an attractive quality and you will zoom higher up their list of favourites. It may be a good idea to refrain from telling jokes on your profile as really, your profile is to hook those casual passers-by and not have them rolling in the aisles at your great wit.
Do allow your passions to come through though. If you care about wildlife and love hiking out into the big great beyond, then say that you would love to share all that scenery with someone special. Give a little of yourself within your bio pages and you will be amazed at how many people stop by and want to send you a message.
