What To Do When Your Online Profile Doesn't Seem To Be Working

Sep 8, 2008
There is nothing worse than writing up your first online dating profile, making it public, and then nothing. Or, the hits that you do get on it are from people that you would never in a million years consider dating even if they were the last person alive.

Little did you know, this happens quite a bit. The problem is likely not you, it's your profile. Unless you spent a lot of time writing up your profile and having it be a true representation of who you are, people are going to see right though it and not have any interest in getting to know you better.

The first thing you need to do when you are going to write your online dating profile is to put on the brakes. If you just hurry through the process you are not going to be as detailed or as accurate as you could be. Take a deep breath before you start, this will help!

The biggest thing that will help you succeed with your dating profile is if you infuse it with you. Don't be boring and drab; instead write like you talk so people will get a sense of you while they are reading it. If you're a funny person, make jokes, be light hearted. This will allow for you to jump off of the page and into the mind of the person who is looking at your profile.

Another thing to be certain of when you are writing your online profile is that you are being honest. When you are sincere it will come across without you trying too hard. Point out what makes you different from everyone else and don't make yourself seem too generic, because you aren't! When you are writing, try to stay as positive as possible, as this is attractive to people.

The key when making up your online profile is to have fun. If you don't have fun while you are doing it, it will be obvious and you are not going to attract very many people. Write in a positive upbeat manner, focusing on who you are and what you want, not about past relationships or diatribes about how you have been hurt. If you get to know someone later you can then reveal your baggage to them, why turn them off within the first few words of reading your profile?

When you read this you may think that it is all too simple, and you're right. Writing a profile is simple, if you know yourself and what you want out of life.

You may have to try a little bit to stay positive and to make sure that there are not a bunch of errors that will detract from what you are trying to say. If you allow for the process of writing your profile to be fun, it will be responded to and you will have a great experience with online dating.
