DATING PROFILES THAT GET RESULTS!

PROFILES THAT GET RESULTS!

OUR TEN POINT DATING PROFILE GUIDE FOR GETTING ATTENTION: CRUCIAL DOS AND DON’TS, AVOIDING THE BIG MISTAKES

The place to start in online dating lies in asolid understanding of your goals. But whether you’re looking for aserious relationship, just casual dating for now, or you’re open toboth, the purpose of your profile is to make connections that open thedoor to personal contact. It’s not about telling your life story. Therewill be time for that. It’s about generating interest to get to thenext stage.

Youand.me is meant to be a fun and easy dating sitefor singles. We believe people are at their most appealing when they’remost at ease. Think of dating online as a scintillating adventure, achance to show the opposite sex who you are and, just maybe, find thelove of your life.

Before getting into your profile try two researchexercises. Check out the profiles of the opposite sex. This is youraudience. Are there common things in a prospect that seem to interestthem? Do they describe the qualities they’re looking for? Does thissuggest attributes of your own to highlight? Then look at thecompetition, the profiles that come up when the opposite sex looks forsomeone like you. Which ones strike you as appealing? Make notes.

GETTING STARTED

1. DATING USERNAMES AND HEADLINES ARE IMPORTANT
Sleazy,vulgar, negative or other inappropriate usernames can kill it right atthe start. (It’s easy to change them.) Try something upbeat orinformative (FunnyGuy, NYCBlonde). Your profile’s headline is alsoimportant—it’s the first thing out of your mouth. Spend time on it. Bepositive, maybe playful. “Up For Sharing Great Times!” sure beats“Lonely 4U in Houston.”

2. DON’T APOLOGIZE FOR BEING HERE
Online dating ishot and getting hotter. Most everybody tries it. You’re not herebecause your mother insisted, or because you “just want to see who’sout there.” You’re single. You’re here to meet people and make aconnection—and so is everyone else.

3. HOLD THE CLICHES
We’re all looking for our soulmate. There’s room to mention your hopes and feelings—in fact, it’shighly recommended—but go easy on flowery words and poetry (unless,that is, you’re a poet). Speak directly, in your own voice. Use yourprofile to talk honestly about your values and the things that areimportant to you. Avoid overt references to sex. And don’t forget toproofread and spell-check. First impressions matter, neatness counts.Read your profile out loud: Does it sound like you?

4. BE POSITIVE
Phrase things in a positive way;which means avoiding cynical rants about your exes or the opposite sex.Talk about what you like instead of what you don’t. “I’m attracted tohonest and sincere people,” sounds better than, “I’ve had it withplaying games.” Consider an inviting, inclusive approach using “you”and “we.” Avoid big greetings like “Hi Guys!” Assume you’re talkingdirectly to just one person. Humor is an absolute winner coming fromeither sex. Thank visitors for checking in.

5. AVIOD LONG CHECKLISTS
In fact, avoid longanything. A profile isn’t a resume. It’s a teaser, a “trailer” designedto capture the audience’s attention so they’ll want to play a role inthe movie that is your life. When it comes to describing yourself—andwho you’re looking for—bring up just the three or four qualities thatreally matter to you. Long laundry lists limit your potential matchesand can even turn off qualified prospects.

6. PICTURES AREN’T PERFECT…
…but they’renecessary. Otherwise most people (especially men) will simply take apass and move on. Your main picture should be fairly recent and showyou alone; no friends or cut-out exes, no nuzzling your dog, (and takeoff the sunglasses, dude). Give the viewer a clean shot of your faceand a sense of your body. You can have fun with other pictures youchoose to post but keep it to a select few.

7. RESIST SELF-FLATTERY
Limit the complimentaryadjectives. Focus attention on a few key things about yourself thatyou’d like to get across. Subtle comments go along way to attractingothers. Instead of talking about how considerate you are describe anincident: Are you a big brother or big sister? Do you volunteer forsomething? Did you nurse a wounded bird last month before setting itfree? Did you just do the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu?

8. FOR MEN
Women are interested in yourcircumstances and your prospects. Not because they’re gold diggers;because they’re carrying around survivor genes and face seriousbiological responsibilities. They get pregnant, infants cling to them.If things get serious women want to know you’re solid and dependable.Talk about your job, your hopes and ambitions. Suggest confidence inthe future and openness to a serious relationship. Most of them canspot a player from a mile away.

9. FOR WOMEN
You don’t need to be rescued. Holdoff on mushy and cutesy—there will be time for that. Avoid negativityand endless details. (And hint at the unbridled passion that lies inwait for the right man.)

10. A FEW WORDS ABOUT HONESTY
The object of aonline dating site is to move from screen to voice to meeting up.What’s the point in playing games? If you show up 30 pounds heavier,ten years older than what you stated in your profile, or bear only afaint resemblance to the pictures you posted you will likely end upwasting everybody’s time, especially your own. Then again, not everyoneplays by this rule. It’s estimated that at online dating sitesfrequented by mature members, average age postings are shaded by morethan three years. Does that mean posting your real age will have peopleassuming your older? (You’re on your own with this one.)

So have fun with your online dating profile. Takeyour time. Focus on the important stuff. Be yourself. It’s not life anddeath—it’s dating. The team at Youand.me hopes you find your match, andwe’re here to make that dream happen!

Your Dating Profile

Keeping Your Dating Profile Nice and Neat

After you have created your free dating site profile you will want to go over it and check for any spelling or grammatical errors.  When you are communicating with potential dating partners, try to use the spell check before you send a communication like a message or an email.  Your profile should be fun and your description should be succinct and accurate.  Remember, not to take the profile too seriously, but seriously enough.

It is completely fine to write exactly what you are looking for in a potential date.  People know what type of person they are attracted to and it is ok to be completely specific.  Don’t be offensive, but don’t be shy in stating your likes and dislikes.

You will want to keep your dating profile up to date.  Change it up about every two weeks with new information about what has been going on with you.  Do the same for your photos also. 

Remember not to divulge personal information.  If you feel comfortable with the person then it is ok, but don’t do it right away.  Make sure you know and trust the person enough to just let them know your name.  Most information that is given can be used to find out more information.  A simple Google search of someone’s email can divulge a lot of information that maybe you were not ready to give out yet.
