If your profile does not look good, then the chance is small that you get a lot of reactions. The dating profile is your business card that invites other singles to contact. What should be in the profile and what not? The profile must comply with certain rules so that it protrudes above the rest and stands out among the long lists of profiles of singles. Here are some tips for a good profile text on a dating site:
Use a teaser as a title; it stands out, and the other person is persuaded to click on your profile. This works in the same way as the popular click bait articles that you see passing through in your Facebook timeline. With titles like “Shocking, how this man amazes himself” you are tempted to click. The teaser must entice the other person to view the profile. You can apply this in different ways. For example, make up a mysterious title so that the other person is curious what to read on the profile.
Keep your profile short but powerful. The person who visits your profile must be able to read the entire text at once without having to scroll. The profile is not intended for your entire life story but to invite the other person to send you a message. Delete all unnecessary text and ask at each sentence whether it helps to entice the other person to send you a message.
A list of your characteristics, characteristics, benefits or interests is not waiting for anyone. Everyone is already doing that. Women are emotional people who prefer to read a story rather than a list. In the world of online marketing, more and more use is made of storytelling1. This is not without reason. It is what people want to read nowadays. Make fun and interesting story instead of a list.
People like to be with other people who are positive. Nobody is interested in someone who is only negative. That is not attractive, and you do not tempt anyone to send you a message. Prevent the use of negative words and do not show that you have had negative experiences with previous dates or relationships. If you want to share this, do it later during one of the dates (not the first one).
Indicate what you are looking for. It is wise to honestly indicate your preferences so that people who do not meet your requirements do not waste time on you. Are you, for example, 1.85m as a woman? Give this to say that you fall on tall men. Do not use specific terms like “longer than 1.82m”. What if you suddenly miss someone who fits you perfectly but is “only” 1.81m?
There is no point in lying about it. You waste your own time but also those of the other. The truth nevertheless comes to the surface at a meeting. This prevents you from investing a lot of time in something that is doomed to fail because of a large age difference.
Humor is appreciated by everyone who reads your profile. It makes the text more fun to read, and you evoke the positive feelings. If you as a man can make a woman laugh, then you are already halfway. Use your distinctive humor so that you deviate from the rest of the profiles.
You do not have a lot of chance without good photos. Especially with apps such as Tinder, it is mainly about the photos and less about the profile text. Take care of some photos where you stand up well. Do not always use the same pose and vary in the type of photo. Some photos are sufficient of which at least one is needed where you stand with your whole body. Whatever you do, do not use photos that are more than two years old. This prevents you from deviating too much from what the other person expects.
