How to Improve Your Online Dating Profile

Do you love sunsets, long walks on the beach, and having fun? Of course you do—along with just about everyone else in the world! So if you've written the above on your online dating profile, you might want to consider reworking it to better showcase your personality. Here are a few tips:

  • Humour: Try to let your sense of humour shine through in your online profile – and not by saying “I have a great sense of humour”! A great sense of humour is something that most people look for in a potential partner, so if you can demonstrate this, you'll be in with a good chance. However, bear in mind that not everyone finds the same things funny, so avoid humour that might be construed as offensive or rude.
  • Positivity: Most online daters are looking for someone who's positive and fun to be around. Try to highlight the things you enjoy about your life rather than your personal struggles or failures. However, in doing so, make sure that you avoid coming across as arrogant.
  • Direction and goals: If you can, try to highlight your personal goals and the particular direction that your life is taking. For example, frame your work in terms of a career and not a job, and frame your hobbies in a similar manner – without adding details that would identify you, of course.
  • Honesty: People notice when you're stretching the truth, so be honest in your online dating profile. After all, people want to get to know you for who you are, not who you pretend to be!

If you put your online dating profile together quickly when you first signed up, why not take the time to review it and make some improvements?
