And if there’s any I’ve forgotten, post them below.
You know why you think you probably shouldn’t say it? The pages of are not the place for frank personal confessions — save it for the third date.
I know I encouraged you to be honest earlier, but if you overshare in your profile, the reader is only gonna think, “And this is what she’s admitting to online. ” The other day I read a profile that said “I probably shouldn’t say this, but I have a little problem with shopping. ” And even with the four exclamation points, I wasn’t convinced.
I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types.
What makes any female dating profile great is the fact that it stands out from the rest of the profiles on any given online dating site. It’s not generic, neutral and overly politically correct.
8) “I need a guy who’s cool with my birds.” He doesn’t exist.
Might as well take down the profile, because nobody – guy or girl – is gonna be cool with your birds.I’ve always been reluctant to advise people on how to construct their dating profile, because there’s really only rule: be yourself. If you’re an intellectual, don’t be afraid to talk about books, or politics, or…pipe smoking. And if you’re looking for something real and substantial, a genuine connection with someone you could be with for a long time – say that too.There’s no point in beating around the bush or soft-selling your wants from the dating world.1) “Looking for a partner in crime.” The only crime we’re going to be partners in is your eventual murder if I have to read this on Match one more time.I know you’re trying to be cute and spunky, but it’s reading more “kooky aunt who never updates her material” than “flirty soulmate.” 2) “I don’t own a TV.” You might as well say, “I send bombs through the mail.” Look, it’s totally fine not to be into TV.(Another cliché statement that is being used by thousands of other women) A great date can be staying at home with a movie and popcorn, or a night on the town. I made myself a promise a few years ago to take a vacation somewhere new, out of state, every year. Well, that is a little about me if you are interested say hello and we will chat. ” *********************** This profile gets a higher grade because it reflects on the writer’s character and her personality.
