dating-profile

The number of people who are active on social networking sites are overwhelming. But what’s disappointing is that only a few people actually make time to put an effort into writing a good dating profile.

It is very confusing that people actually 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 clichés and errors.

When it comes to women’s dating profile, you will know that a profile is great when it is able to stand out from the rest of the profiles on a particular dating site. This one is a sample of a bad dating profile.

 “I have been in the ——- area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people.  I am a very hard worker and love my job. I work a lot, but I know how to balance well. I enjoy
meeting new people and going to new places. I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. 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. I have not been disappointed yet. I would really love to see Europe.

The first sentence is not interesting enough for someone to actually read it until the very end which is a very important factor. In simpler terms, it is very bland and boring. Looks very generic. Next, this is an example of dating profile that is very good and well written!

 “I don’t like most guys, but… I am not interested in most guys and besides perhaps that what makes those few unique individuals that I do connect with all more special. Myself – restless, analytical, and opinionated. I am not offended by a dirty joke and can dish out one of my own. I am independent but far from being a feminist. Sarcasm is a spice of life, so bring it on. Timeless books and movies that make you wonder for days about whose side you are on put great flavor into many of my evenings. What’s your story? What are you greatest pet-peeves and what makes you weak in your knees from joy and happiness.”

Now, this is a very good dating profile because it consists of a number of thought provoking statements right from the beginning that show a woman’s great personality and sense of humor.

Of course, these are just two examples, but you can see a clear contrast I hope!
