Getting Attention Has Never Been Easier.
Trying to create that perfect profile for your online dating sites is something that everyone struggles with early on, but to be honest there really is not much to setting up an account and profile that will get you the attention you want. The first thing you need to do though is STOP looking at all the other existing profiles of members because you are NOT them. The perfect online dating profile begins with YOU.
There are lot of things you should avoid when creating that perfect profile, but most of these things are fairly obvious, and a little common sense never goes astray. To make it easier however, let's look at some of the more important elements that should be included in your profile if you want to attract the attention of others.
To begin with, let's look at the element that is going to generate the most attention - the profile picture.
A photo that shows thought and care goes a long way to summarising you as a person. The say a photo says a thousand words, and in the online dating world this is more pertinent than ever. Use the nicest photo you can find of yourself, go to a professional photographer if necessary. Take the time to show your best side but don't over do it! The last thing people want to see is an outrageously overdone photo or something that is clearly not natural looking. And a final word - make sure the photo is actually of you! I know it goes without saying, but you are going to eventually meet these people so why kill any chance of success before you even begin?!
Incomplete Profiles are a no-no. Make things up if you have to! Yes I know that goes against what I just said previously but if you have no interests or hobbies at all then really - what is there for people to find a common interest in? Make sure you fill out your profile information completely and honestly. Some sites will only show a brief summary of your bio on the page so be sure to include the important information early on in the piece.
You want to meet people interested in the same thing you are intested in, so let them know who you really are!
Profiles that have complete information are not only more likely to get viewed, but will also keep your viewers more likely to stay or come back for more. If there is plenty of good information about you that your viewers can read to get a better idea of your personality, likes and dislikes, and other important information about yourself, the more chances that you will find a match quicker, and more suited to you.
How Specific Should I Get?
This is really up to you, but a good idea is to check out some of the other profiles online. Since you have already created most of yours it is now OK to check out some of the others. Profiles that have specific information, like what you are looking for in a relationship – long term, fling, or something a little naughtier – are more likely to get more attention from people who are looking for the same thing. You need to tell people what you want and it is incredible how many people don't
The Perfect online dating profile begins with the person that you actually are, not the person you think others would be most interested in. Most people can see through the lies and the fakeness so there really is no point going there. Be sure to include a photo of your good side and let your true colors show in your profile information. Get to the point and don't big note yourself.
The perfect profile is only a few good questions away -so start asking yourself what you want, the rest should fill itself in - perfectly.
