Tips for a Successful Online Dating Profile
Here are some handy tips for successful online dating.
- To increase your chances of contact with other singles, add at least three photos to your dating profile. They will need to be recent photos (take a selfie if you need to). Other singles do not care what you looked like last year (or what you look like after a good amount of PhotoShop), they are considering meeting you now, as you are right at this moment.
- Since you don't know each other yet, don't attempt to lure someone in by adding scantily-clad photos, which could easily be passed around the office or family of your date before you meet.
- One of your profile photos should be a close up of your face, where you are smiling. This is no time for pulling faces, putting on the dark glasses, and covering your bad hair with a hat. Simply adding an honest, smiling headshot will get you loads more attention. If you're not greeting other singles online with a smiling face, they are more likely to look at the photos of others who are indeed smiling. No one wants to meet Mr or Miss Grumpy or Mr or Miss Moody. Your photo is your first greeting, so show your smile! It looks welcoming.
- If you've found someone who's sparked your interest, and you have the opportunity to message them, please don't say, "Hi, how was your day?". Imagine if that person received ten similar messages that day! It's too boring for the reader, and it screams of minimal effort! So, if you contact someone, introduce yourself, tell them a little more about yourself which you haven't already written in your profile, and ask them if they'd be interested in chatting further. Here's an example: "Hi Sunny, I'm Sam, I really like your profile and your photos, and I live not far from you. I'm an engineering student, and I work in sales, I love Salsa dancing (have you ever tried it?) and Thai food and I'm single and looking for a relationship. Let me know if you'd be interested in chatting further, and have a nice day, Sam".
- There's also a certain level of trust you need to build before you meet someone you've only met online. So if it turns out you have lied about your age, or your photos are not current, there is a high chance you are never going to get a second date. Keep your dating profile honest.
- Whatever you write in your profile, keep a positive outlook, and you'll attract positive responses. For example, if you're a little overweight, you could write, "I've put on a few pounds over the years, but I've recently started running and would love to join a gym. I'd be interested in meeting someone who could encourage me and share these interests with me". Or simply, "I'm a big cuddly man, who loves all food and I can cook up a storm, so be prepared to be wined and dined regularly", or for women "If you love a woman with curves you'll appreciate my looks!".
- Write something unique and personal about yourself in your online profile, just because this gives your potential date a conversation starter. For example, "I once won first prize in a French cooking competition. Could you be my next taste-tester?". It's not silly to add something like this because it keeps your profile interesting, and potential dates could message you and say, "I'm not much of a cook, but I'd love to be your taste-tester!"
- In your profile, don't limit what you're looking for by asking for certain physical characteristics. Sure you might prefer someone tall and blonde, but what if your perfect match is someone who notices your profile, then decides not to contact you because they don't meet the requirements you've set on your profile for height, eye colour, or size. Stay open to opportunities by not asking for physical attributes which will limit your dating opportunities and profile views.

Great variety of quotes for online dating. I tried online dating in my twenties. I made sure to meet at safe places like coffee shops or restaurants. I had fun meeting a variety of guys but never met one that felt like 'the one'. Great hub.
