|Tips To Creating A Profile That Works|
After browsing through numerous dating websites out there, finally you decide to give it a try. So, what’s the next step? Needless to say, creating a profile of your own is what you need to do in order to “advertise” yourself to others. Not only do you need to compose a little essay about yourself, you also need to make sure what you write will be interesting and attractive. You want to make sure what is written in your profile will catch others’ attention, thereby increasing the number of people contacting you. Following are some helpful tips for profile writing:
1. Be specific of what you are looking for
Whether you are looking for friendships or a love relationship, say it out loud. State it clearly in your profile so to save your time as well as other people’s time.
2. Be Honest
It always kicks off with emailing, chatting through ICQ or MSN, talking over the phone, and then meeting face-to-face. Don’t be telling lies to people that you might eventually meet up with. It is important for you to exercise caution in what you write. For instance, you don’t want to include any personal identifiable information such as your last name, your address, and your phone number in your profile. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to make up stories about yourself or try to be something or someone that you are not.
3. Show off
Don’t be shy. Show off what you want others to know about you. For example, instead of saying that you are a funny person, include a joke in your profile. The impact will be much greater. Highlight your characteristics that you think will make you distinctive. After all, you do want to stand out from the crowd.
4. Attach a photo
A picture is better than a thousand words. Profiles with photos included always receive more responses than otherwise.
5. Review your profile
Last but not least, always review your profile thoroughly before posting it. You don’t want any false information included in your profile to mislead other people.
