Getting Your Profile Noticed
You've seen the typical profiles: "Single white male, 30, loves dogs, good
food, and long walks." That one sentence says one thing - boring. Furthermore,
it looks like the profile headline of about a million 30 year old white males
out there. If you want to get your profile noticed, you've got to be
How about, "Single white male, 30, wants to cook you a great meal, and serve
you that meal like the queen you are!" That's a little better. Maybe not
great, but definitely not quite as boring. The sad fact is that your profile
won't be noticed if you don't include a picture, and you don't write a fantastic
headline for that profile.
You have very little real estate to attract attention with your headline,
and it has got to say enough about you and who you are to get attention -
the right attention. What you write, and how you write it says volumes about
you! Because you have such limited room to let people know who you are and
draw attention, you have to learn that quality is what matters - not quantity.
Your headline needs to be unique. It needs to be captivating, and positive
and upbeat. It absolutely must be honest, and if possible, even humerous.
Once you have the perfect attention drawing headline, you need an equally
interesting profile - the profile that people will see when they click on
Your profile is your marketing tool. You are marketing yourself. Start by
just writing it - don't try to be witty or funny - or even interesting right
now. Just get the basic facts about yourself down, and be honest! Remember
that you are not writing your autobiography here - so just give the highlights.
Once you've done that, go back, and take each sentence, and make it more
interesting. Put more thought into each and every sentence that you have
written, and rewrite them. Instead of saying that you like to cook, say that
you love good food, and you especially enjoy creating mouthwatering quisine,
and watching people enjoy it. Go through everything you've written, and dress
it up - but make sure that you stay honest!
Again, don't go on and on. People scan profiles to find people that they
are interested in. You aren't writing an award winning novel. You are just
letting people know who you are - and what you are looking for - in an un-boring,
uncommon way. Shorter profiles often get more attention than profiles that
go on and on!
Don't tell them everything! Write some statements that create intrigue! The
allure of mystery is and always has been an important part of the dating
scene. Make them contact you for details! List your likes and dislikes, your
goals, and all of your vital statistics that the profile asks for, but where
you are allowed, be creative. Instead of saying that you are 30, if you have
the ability to type your age, type that your body is 30, but that your mind
is and always will be 21.
Write what you do in your spare time. This is important, because people often
look for people that either do the same things that they do, or do things
that they would like to start doing. Again, don't just use single words,
use phrases if possible. Instead of hang gliding, say I love the exhilaration
of hang gliding - there's nothing like jumping off the side of a mountain!
Always, above all, stay positive! If you are divorced, say so, but then add
a positive spin to it, and say that you are divorced, and you feel that you
have learned well what does and does not make a relationship work. If there
is a negative that needs to be put in there, make sure that you turn it into
a positive in someway - and be honest!
It sounds like alot of work - and it is! Creating a winning profile takes
time, effort, and lots of thought. Some of the absolute best profiles took
days, and some more than a week to create! Unless you are a natually creative
writer, you really can't write a winning profile in ten minutes - or even
in an hour. Take the time that you need to take to make sure that your profile
is interesting, that it will draw attention, and that it portrays who you
are in the most descriptive way possible, but without becoming too long and
