Online Dating Profile Tips: You Need to be Really Creative to Get Noticed

Use these online dating profile tips to get more emails, flirts and dates!

Does you’re dating profile read like this…….?

“Funny, outgoing person, great sense of humour, positive outlook on life, love people, sport, animals and enjoy life, outdoors and having fun with my friends, good movie and great company”

If it does you need help or you could be doomed to spend the rest of your life alone!

Getting your dating profile noticed is all about being creative, positive and entertaining so that it stands out from the zillions of others on a dating site. Here are some online dating profile tips that will help you to create a great dating profile and ensure your online dating popularity…..

1. Positive people are popular people

Avoid making negative comments especially about yourself and even in jest. Comments such as “I’m not good looking but I have great sense of humour” and such like are a great big turn off and make you look like a loser and who wants to date a loser?

Much better to say something like “I have a great sense of humour as you’ll discover on our first date.” You see the difference?

2. Arouse their curiosity

Asking a question like  “Have you ever used telepathy to communicate with people ?” is bound to intrigue people and want them to find out more about you but of course you have to be yourself and feel comfortable with what you write.

3. Share your hopes and dreams

People not only like to know what you are doing now but also what your hopes and dreams are for the future.  So you might say something like “I’m a bank clerk by day but in the evening I play bass guitar in a rock band and aim to have a number one hit one day and give up my day job.”

4. Honesty is always the best policy

Never say anything you don’t mean in your dating profile otherwise it will surely lead to disappointment when someone discovers that the real you is not the person in your profile. It also follows that any pictures you add to your profile are of you not someone else and should be ones taken recently not 20 years ago!

5. Use an interesting screen name

Don’t use your real name but instead use a screen name that describes some aspect of your appearance or personality. Screen names such as BeautifulBlueEyes, TallDarkHandsome, WaterBaby, AngelEyes etc sound great but avoid pathetic ones like LonesomeCowboy, UnluckyInLove, NeedSomebody etc -you get the picture?

6. Walk tall

People like to meet other people who are confident and self assured so make sure you know who you are and what you stand for before joining a dating site. If you are not confident and don’t know who you are then spend some time getting to know yourself. This will at least enable you to provide a more accurate description of you in your dating profile.

7. What’s special about you and the person you seek

Say in your profile what’s so special about you and what you have to offer someone. You also need to describe the person you are looking for and what’s so special about them too. Oh and don’t be mislead by people that say opposites attract – that might apply to magnets with opposite polarities but is not true when it comes to people. Rest assured that most successful relationships are based on similarities not differences.

8. Consider using our unique online dating profile writing service

If your personal and work commitments mean you cannot dedicate the time to creating a really compelling profile or if you find yourself staring at a blank piece of paper because the mere thought of composing an essay about your self leads to writer’s block then perhaps you’d like to consider using our new unique online dating profile writing service.
