Be you! Just be frank and honest

We don't mean totally honest about irrelevant details. You don't need to mention hiding the paint brush of a classmate in kindergarten! That stuff your date doesn't need to know in your profile. Just start writing by talking about yourself - your likes, dislikes, beliefs and feelings! Don't be pretentious and cloud yourself in flowery terms to intimidate a potential date!

Unique and stunning you

Ever heard of the phrase - one of a kind or one in a billion? That's it folks - in the second part of your profile just write conversationally about what is so unique about you? What makes you tick? What makes you different from the rest of population? Describe your desires, ambitions and attitudes. Don't hold back and be shy - if you are beautiful with an hour glass figure, write about it. If you are a Greek God, write about it.

Embrace your reader (only figuratively)

Be sure to talk to your reader on a personal level. Write about your hobbies and activities in an enjoyable fashion unraveling your personality inch by inch. Keep the readers anticipated with bated breath as they walk with you through your experiences and feel that they know you well.

Visual catch

Yes, the most important part of your profile has to be your photograph. Pasting your photo in your profile will do the trick on every online dating site. But please, paste a good photo which shows off your physical attributes nicely - don't select and paste a photo which shows you in bedraggled clothes with disheveled hair. This is a visual world and people only pursue what they see. Hire a professional photographer if need be. Step on it folks and be sure to snap the right picture to be posted under your profile on online dating sites.

These tips could help you to write a killer profile. But be sure, to keep two to three personal profiles at hand. Don't keep sticking the same profile on every online dating website.
