What makes any female dating profile great is the fact that it stands out from the rest of the profiles on any given online dating site. It’s not generic, neutral and overly politically correct.
It doesn’t describe you with overused adjectives such as “intelligent, compassionate, educated, and independent” and it is free of boring statements that say nothing such as “I am as comfortable staying in as staying out.” Rather than continue describing what a good profile is, I want to bring to your attention real examples of three actual dating profiles from on popular site that I rated for content.
The world of online dating is filled with the good, the bad and the downright ugly when it comes to suitors. With a bit of hard work and training, anyone can create a profile that will stand out from the competition and attract the right people. Often, men will see a profile they are attracted to, struggle with what to say, get frustrated and consequently, skip to the next profile. Writing in your profile that "I love camping in the summer," doesn't make it easy for the reader to strike up a conversation.
Good Generic Example #1 Let’s face it, I don’t live the life of a rock-star or famous athlete …
but those guys are always getting caught cheating on their wives, so why would I want to live that life?
Instead, let's change the phrasing above to, "When I'm not out with my friends on a Friday night, I love curling up under the covers and watching a scary movie (any suggestions? Many men and women unintentionally use language that displays a lack of confidence.
)." In this revised statement, I have turned a cliché into a statement that has personality, flirts with the reader, provides bait and discusses the type of movies that I am specifically into. For example, writing that "I really to meet a man who is smart, fun and handsome," doesn't sound terrible, but the word "hope" implies that you are the one chasing and "hoping" things will turn out OK.
