I’ve read a few profiles that are nice. By that, I mean I think it sounds like it’s a snapshot of the individual’s personality. It doesn’t mean that I’m interested, it’s just seems well composed.
As for the others, you need the following:
- A picture, not a picture that you took of yourself in the bathroom mirror. If you need a picture, tell a friend that you need a nice picture for Facebook. Or be honest and say it’s for your dating profile! On my profile I state that no picture = no response. I’d be lying if I said that physical attraction didn’t matter.
- Be honest. But sometimes there is such thing as over share. I don’t want to read about farts in your profile.
- Try not to be too negative. I understand, we all know what we like and don’t like. When you end up with a bulleted list, I’m thinking you will remind me of Larry David. I love his character on Curb Your Enthusiasm but I wouldn’t be able to tolerate him. You’ll get this information in a few email exchanges or phone call.
- Think about your expectations. Are they realistic? One profile requested a submissive woman and went onto say that he wanted her to pleasure him sexually. I don’t know any submissive women. I don’t think that woman exists. Honestly, any woman who goes into a relationship trying to be submissive, will ultimately turn into a crazy person/murderer. It’s not healthy!
- Be cautious about your mention of sex. I think most women assume that men enjoy sex. We assume that if you have a penis, you will want to use it at some point. We don’t need you to go into detail. If that’s your primary focus, there are certain sites, you should focus on.
- Copy and paste your profile into word. It can catch your misspellings and grammatical errors.
- Ask for feedback. Have a friend or a someone of the opposite of sex take a glance at your profile.
I love my profile. I often get great feedback from other guy’s that they enjoyed reading my profile. Right now, I’m trying to figure out what does my ideal guy look like. Not physically but I wonder about personality and interests. Right now, I think I’d like an active, researcher-type from one of three nearby cities. As for other cities and towns, I’ll think it about. There are other things I’d like but I think it’s best to be flexible. Who wants to date a carbon copy? Remember that episode of Seinfeld when Jerry was dating the female version of himself?
