Online Dating: Writing Your Profile

Online Dating: Writing Your Profile

You have finally made the move from traditional dating to dating online. No more waiting in fancy restaurants, no more having to be on your best behavior at all times, no more suits and fancy dresses. You can wear your PJs, sit in the comfort of your home and speak to whomever you want to. As easy as that – right? Well, not quite.

Joining an online dating website does make life a little less complicated and getting to meet people with the same interests as you gets a lot easier. However, you do have to make similar efforts to impress the other person as you would in a traditional date. And the drawback here is you have to do so through the written word. When you meet someone in person, it is a lot easier to speak to them and charm them. However, in online dating, all you are allowed as an introduction is a dating profile. It is therefore, very important that you learn to write your profile in such a manner as to make it stand out amidst the hundreds of other profiles.

A typical dating profile consists of some very basic stuff like your online user name, a subject line and then some personal information. Interestingly enough each one of these areas can be used very effectively to give yourself a very distinct personality without revealing too much about yourself.

To begin with, your dating user name is no ordinary user name. Use it to convey what you feel strongly about, perhaps your work or some other activity. Give it some thought and come up with something that is different and exciting.

Next comes the subject line. Though you will have not enough space to write anything substantial here, you still have one more chance to sell yourself as a person who is different from the rest. Make a short list of adjectives that can best describe you and use them to make you sound positive, full of energy and very interesting.

Next comes the actual profile writing part. Many believe this is the most important and hence the toughest part of joining an online dating website. Do not be in a hurry to fill it out on day one. Impressions once made cannot be easily undone. The very first thing you have to remember is that you have to stay honest and frank. Never lie about your age, your job or your waistline. You are looking for a life-long commitment here and it is not a good idea to start it based on lies. Try to make your description about yourself as accurate and still as flattering as possible. At all times, emphasize your personality, your zest for life and your need to share the good things in life with someone. If there is someone genuinely interested in you, he or she will contact you, no matter what your waistline. If you can upload a photo, ask a professional to take a good, flattering photo of yourself which you can put up on the website.

So, while writing up a dating profile is an important task, as you can see, it is not as complicated as you feared. Follow the tips we mentioned above and you can look forward to a busy and happy dating life.
