Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for all the advice here. It was a pleasure to read. A friend of mine has been struggling with his profile, and was convinced that he was the reason he wasn 8767 t getting much interest. I 8767 m never for tricking anyone, but I told him online dating is as much about advertising oneself as advertising a product, you have to be thoughtful with what you choose to put out there and how you represent yourself. We 8767 re working on a profile together now, mostly cause I insisted he let me try to help before closing his down for good.
First, I 8767 m a 59 year old woman seeking a man. Second, I 8767 ve been on dating sites for only 65 days and already want to cry and cry due to meager, pitiful profiles and some frankly scary pictures. Then, yesterday, I read this really great profile. Cute guy and everything. Finally. But I should have known by the flawless punctuation it couldn 8767 t be real. I did a one-sentence copy/paste into google and boom, busted the guy for plagiarism.
Why can 8767 t you be honest and tell the girl how you want to treat her so that she will know what to expect?
. give her little surprises, be there for her when she needs you, truly care for her, you will be honest, etc.
Or does this take the mystery away?
Why is it so bad to be a nice person?
Is it boring?
Why do you have to be a 8775 jerk like 8776 ?
Does the woman have a devil inside of her?
The point is to keep on trying until you land the best one (you’ll know when you’ve done it right). And it’s best to use a headline that you yourself find nice. That increases your chances of hooking up with someone who shares your likes and dislikes. It helps if you get a little creative and come up with your own headline that doesn’t sound negative, depressing or creepy. But make sure you don’t misspell your words and mess up your grammar cause that will really hurt your chances.
Hey Nancy It 8767 s funny because while these profiles are good, they have been copied THOUSANDS of times. I single handedly made the 8775 Anchorman 8776 the most quoted movie of all time on okCupid because so many guys copied the #7 profile with the 8775 Anchorman 8776 quote in it. If you search okCupid you 8767 ll see thousands of guys that just copied these profiles word for word and they wonder why they don 8767 t work. lol
8. I would rather be a rock star then a movie star. My personal theory on music, is that it is just pure, emotional communication, have you ever listened to a song in another language but still understood on an emotional level, what the song was trying to express? Music can bring emotions out in us and bring us back to emotions that we felt in the past it 8767 s a talent that I wish I had, and emotions are really the most addictive chemicals.
If you 8767 d like to know more S ay 8775 hi 8776 . I didn 8767 t reve A l a lot about my S elf for you to read on purpose. Rather we chat, talk, engage in conversation to get to know each other instead of us reading through a long page in this section about each other. Also, just because someone look S like a good match “on paper”, doesn 8767 t necessaril Y translate in reality.
And if you are among those who wish to remain single forever, then go ahead and use these terrible headlines that are sure to make anyone cringe. You may be thinking that I’m fooling around but these are actual headlines taken from some of the most popular dating sites on the Internet. In any case, when you are ready to come up with your own headline, please try not to sound anywhere like the ones mentioned below. Side note: a lot of them have awful grammar and spelling.
If you have a good sense of humor, why not put it to good use? After all, falling in love should be fun! Besides, a lot of profiles focus on depressing and desperate headlines that only serve to ruin the mood. So, why not use a funny headline which might break a smile on whoever is interested in your profile. It’s a good way of lightening up the atmosphere and not seem too desperate for love. Steer clear of boring, typical and needy headlines with the ones listed below.
I 8767 ve already had a little more success. Not really any responses but much more interest. Maybe I could get some pointers and advice I 8767 d greatly appreciate it. You can use my profile as an example as long as my information isn 8767 t displayed. Again thank you for your advice. Online dating is very intimidating but a useful tool especially when someone like myself find it difficult to say these things in person but much easier and more relaxing with a little buffer. Much appreciated!! Your hard work surely has paid off.
Uploading a photo is one of the first steps is to creating your profile. Your main photo is the first thing men will notice about you, so it’s worth taking the time to make sure it’s perfect. The worst thing you could do is use old photos of yourself. It’s dishonest, and you’ll only make the guy mad when you meet in person. The only exception is if you look exactly the same as you did five years ago or whatever the case is.
I love to live an active life and explore. I am very passionate about helping others and I am currently in the process of putting together a fundraiser to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis by climbing Mt. Rainier. The climb is also being dedicated to one of my patients that I have become very close to who loves adventure and mountains although unfortunately his lung function prevents him from chasing his dreams due to the high altitude.
You also want to be aware of certain words that will attract men. A study by Wired , who analyzed data from and , identified 6,555 keywords that are the best and worst options. Words you should try to use include “yoga”, “surfing”, “Radiohead”, “abs”, and “whom”. Pick and choose the ones that work best with your interests. Words you shouldn’t use include “my cats”, “drama”, “girlfriends”, “retirement”, and “karaoke”.
I loooove to sing Luther Vandross songs. Also, I would love to be blessed with the lady of my life. Want to know more??? Well, that can 8767 t happen unless you contact me. Hate playing games??!! Hate being told lies??!! Well, come on I 8767 M YOUR MAN!!!YOU NEED THIS in your life!!! PEACE & BLESSINGS!!! You still haven’t messaged me yet??!! LET 8767 S GO CHOP, CHOP!!!! (smile) MAY GOD BLESS YOU INDEED!! I receive messages frequently but I do respond quickly. XOXOXOXO applause:
i like to know as much as i can about a person kind of full disclosue because if that 8767 s who the person is, and you get involved, you 8767 re going to know anyway, so better to know up front. and i like to divulge, in okcupid 8767 s questions section, as much as i can about myself (sometimes with comments to elaborate, sometimes w/humor or sarcasm, to have a voice). thus full disclosure of both helps you hone in on qualities you like and deal breakers you don 8767 t.
But now: Here ye, Here ye Knights in Shining Armor, there is something I must inform you about this profile it is off due to a few things. Did you figure out what that might be? Don 8767 t worry, 8775 Attraction Killer 8776 Red Flag #7 is tough to spot , especially when we 8767 re doing it in our own online dating approach. Take the quiz for instant enlightenment!
This guy is so funny he’s irresistible. Right from the get-go his profile starts off with a catchy line that is knee jerking funny and it doesn’t come off as too cliché or to “out there”. His profile is so humorous I don’t really care what he looks like—I want to get to know him, find out where he gets his outrageous sense of humor. He represents the kind of guy that will keep me in stitches and feeling good.

And avoid selfies as well as group and overly sexualized pictures — I beg of you. Not only are selfies way overplayed, but they really only make sense in the context of a social media site like Instagram. In terms of group shots, you want the men to actually know which one is you, so stick to solo photos. As for sexy pictures, you want to walk that fine line between showing enough without revealing too much. Leave a little mystery to it.
And yet another short list of things that I’m not really fond of:
Cars (can’t tell why I put this one first )
Self-centered people (but, hey Have you ever heard anybody saying “yes, yes, I am definitely self-centered.” So this one doesn’t really count!!)
TV (even if I like one or two shows and some movies)
Superficial people (but same problem as #7 )
