How to Write an Internet Personal Ad
You want the personal advertisement that you place on the Internet dating
site that you have just joined to stand out from the crowd. And, trust me,
there IS a crowd.
The first thing that you should do is look at the personal advertisements
that have been posted by other women. No, you don't want to DATE the other
women but you always need to know who your competition is. Look carefully
at these advertisements and it won't take you long to see that most of them
are a lot like the rest of them. You will notice that a few of the advertisements
do, in fact, stand out from the crowd. The ones that stand out do NOT start
with 'Hello' or 'Looking to meet new friend' or any other plain (and boring)
Some that stand out are real turn-offs. These are the ones that begin with
statements like, 'I'm the kind of girl your mama warned you about' or 'Your
daddy would tell you to not mess with a gal like me'. These are the best
examples of what NOT to do. I've always wondered just who these women hoped
to attract with those kind of headlines.
The very few that do stand out from the crowd in a good way all have one
thing in common and that is that they are not common.
The basic rule for writing a personal ad is that it should be only 200 to
250 words long. About two-thirds (150 to 200) of the words should be devoted
to telling about yourself...who you are and the things that you like. The
balance of the words should be used to describe the kind of person that you
are hoping to meet.
Some headline ideas that do get attention are lines like: "I'm willing to
lie about how we met if you are!" or "You have been granted two wishes. I'm
here. What is your next wish?" Both of these examples are a bit cocky but
they send a message of humor and they aren't 'Hello' or 'Looking to meet
The following is a sample of what a personal advertisement placed by a woman
might look like:
I believe in magic! Every time I am hiking a mountain trail and see the sun
rising over a distant mountain, I believe in magic. Every time I see the
look on a proud new father's face when I am doing my volunteer work at the
local hospital, I believe in magic and every time I watch my unbelievably
beautiful Golden Retriever win yet another trial, I believe in magic. My
many friends make me believe in magic, too.
I could be called a little 'vertically challenged' at only 5'2" but what
I lack in size, I make for with enthusiasm for life. After I have put in
my 40 hours as a legal secretary each week, I love Saturdays that I spend
with my friends grilling steaks and watching sports on television. I love
having my nieces and nephews spending the night and telling ghost stories.
I would like to find someone with which to share the magic. He must be a
person who loves the outdoors and he must especially love kids and dogs.
I would like to meet a man who is ambitious without being obsessed with success.
I'm 25 and would like to meet a man who is between 25 and 35 years old and
has never been married. He needs to have a great sense of humor and he has
to believe in magic.
