Happy Humpday Purgators!
Seeing a lot of online dating profiles can make someone either extremely jaded or extremely knowledgable (we prefer to think we’re of the latter group).
Here are our do’s and don’ts for creating the best online dating profile:
- Mirror Selfies: Mirror selfies are just weird…end of story.
- Sexual Innuendos: Leave the dirty talk to the conversation — no need to put it in your profile.
- Too Many Group Shots: You’ll always be assumed as the least attractive one in the photo.
- Be Secretive With Important Info: Disclose if you have a kid, are in an open relationship, have a third leg, etc.
- Forget To Include Pictures: No one trusts a blank face.
- Include Something About Yourself: Good conversation starters are a must — hobbies, what you do for work, fun facts, etc (this applies more exclusively to Tinder).
- If Space Is Provided For More Info- Fill It In: You don’t need to overshare but provide the basics. Novels are a no-no — no one cares!
- If It’s A Match, Have A Conversation: What’s the point of matching just for matching?
- Keep Online Conversation Light: Save those intimate personal details for later.
- Exchange At Least One Social Media Account: This confirms you both are who you say you are.
- Make Sure Your Pictures Accurately Reflect What You Like: Include pictures of you doing what you love. If you enjoy travelling, include pictures of you on vacay, if you like sports, have a picture of you playing.
- Keep The Photos Recent: If it’s older than a year, it’s probably too old — unless your Benjamin Button.
Whether you’re making a new dating profile, revising an old one or have a friend who needs an overhaul, these do’s and don’ts are sure to leave you with the best results.
