How to Fill Out the About Me Section on a Dating Site
Online dating, you may have noticed has become a very popular way to people. Although it is a good forum to chat and get to know someone before making a decision of rather you want to meet them or not. It can still be difficult to even get to an initial online introduction. To increase your chances of meeting the right person, I have laid out some simple steps that will help you in getting more responses and more perspective dates. And lead to that right person you are perfectly matched with.
Your success in finding a good match for you is going to start with how you fill out your profile, in fact this is going to be the most important step, so take the time to make it as compelling but truthful as you possibly can. Start with the photo. Pick a good recent picture of yourself to post. This is very crucial, most profiles without a photo are going to be passed over. If you do not have a recent photo of yourself, have one taken. Make sure the photo reflects who you are not what you think your potential date wants to see. If you are a mechanic, don’t try to deceive anyone by wearing doctor scrubs.
When filling in your profile be honest. If your not honest about who you are or what you do, your going to attract people that you have nothing in common with, and it all becomes a waste of time for both of you. Be sure to fill in as much information about yourself as you possibly can,avoid leaving blank spaces if you don’t have to. When filling in your interest try not to do as a list, ie; I like swimming, backpacking, camping, etc. There are a million profiles out there that say exactly the same thing. Instead engage in a conversation just as you are actually talking to the person reading your profile. Spice it up a little bit bit don’t over do it. Try something like, I enjoy swimming,and go to the beach every chance I can, I also like backpacking and have hiked miles of trails, Love going camping pitching the tent, roasting the marshmallows,and telling ghost stories. This will make you sound more able to engage in a fun conversation.
Be sure to be specific about the type of person you want to meet, but don’t come off as a snob. For example if you do not smoke and you say sometime like, I can’t stand smokers so don’t even bother trying to connect with me. Even a non smoker who otherwise might be interested in you may be turned off with that type of remark. Try something like; I am not a smoker myself and would prefer not to connect with a smoker, sorry. If physical appearance is important to you, relay that without being arrogant or offending. Something like this is not going to work for you; I am a hot stud and I am looking for a hot blonde bombshell. Try this; I would like to meet someone who shares my interest in fitness, health, and outward appearance.
When you are done with your profile, save it and go back and reveiw it, If there is anything in there that would discourage you if you where reading someone elses profile, it is probably going to discourage someone else also. Edit it until it is a profile that would interest you, if you find it interesting, it’s going to attract the type of person you are looking for if they find it interesting. Once you have your profile just the way you want it, post it, sit back and enjoy all the responses.
