Pretend you’re the person who’s reading your profile. Is it more intriguing to date someone who says he/she likes “to try new things” or who “once ate jellyfish in China”?
When stumped with coming up for a story for one of your adjectives, like “thoughtful,” just think of the best/most memorable/most unique things you did for exes.
Or post your profile online and see what people respond to, then amend it from there.
In no time, all your sentences of stories will mesh together to tell your future partner how they’ll benefit from dating you versus just learning about common interests you may have.
If you're not comfortable putting your picture up online, avoid overselling your appearance with dubious claims like "Sharon Stone look-alike." I started my magazine personal with: "Curvy, almond-eyed writer, fit (good shoulders)...." My husband says he was attracted to the soft sell of the description and the quirky confidence of the assertion.
Instead of saying you're funny or well educated or caring, demonstrate that.
Attach a handful of unique photos to your account as well.
Keep your profile positive and you soon will be attracting all sorts of potential partners.
Props that make you feel soulful, frisky, and fascinating help you make those claims for yourself in your ad. It might sound obvious, but be sure to post a terrific photo of yourself. More to the point: I wanted to attract a man who appreciated subtlety. Try an ad that consists entirely of your favorite movie dialogue or a list of beloved fictional characters. My ad requested a man "financially stable, kinda handsome, who can slow dance, make me laugh, read between the lines." Cast a wide net and edit out the responses. If you’re really stuck, you can always ask friends to remind you.Then, have a few trusted opposite-sex friends read your finished product and get their feedback.The end result would be a profile that read like a good article or book jacket instead of a dating ad, and when someone reached the end of it, they’d want to read more and contact the person.
