Describing yourself on a dating site
Having seen literally thousands of dating profiles on tons of different sites, I gathered some occurring adjective and descriptors that online dating users include in their profiles.When looking at your own profile, do any of these words pop out at you?(This first sentence says nothing eye-catching about the woman and is very bland, and boring). (still, nothing thought provoking or attractive) I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. (Finally something somewhat interesting that she says about herself).
(Great, thought provoking opener that shows a woman’s engaging personality. I am not offended by a dirty joke and can dish out one of my own. “I don’t know if the world is going to run forever, but I know I’m not going to be around forever!
I don’t know if I will finally meet you to warm my heart and join for a better, happier journey, but I know I can’t stop looking for you, and can’t stop calling you in my heart…
Likewise, our dating profile self-descriptions will affect the types of people are attract to us.
Is what you are writing helping or hindering your choices of finding a match?
If you currently have a dating profile, try going through the text of it and highlighting all the adjectives or descriptive phrases.
What kind of a picture are you painting with the words you’ve used?
I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why: I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.
“I have been in the ——- area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people. I enjoy meeting new people and going to new places.
First, meet a guy, then decide what you want out of him). I am looking to meet someone in the this area and see what happens! 🙂 (good, funny, statement that shows personality and sense of humor, she should have used more of this kind of words throughout her profile).
Relocating for the right person is definitely an option. ” ******************************* This is one great dating profile.
It is free of fluff and very compelling for a guy who can appreciate this type of no-nonsense attitude in a person: “I don’t like most guys, but… Timeless books and movies that make you wonder for days about whose side you are on put great flavor into many of my evenings. What are you greatest pet-peeves and what makes you weak in your knees from joy and happiness.” Profile #4: Grade A This last profile below gets the highest great for both the content and the creativity. What I particularly like about this profile is that it shows that a woman hasn’t lost faith in true love and romance but at the same time she is also realistic.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
