Extreme Makeover: Dating Profile Edition
For those that go out to bars and clubs to meet people, fashion has always been an important aspect of your persona. You might be one heck of a guy, but with a ratty shirt or acid wash jeans, you might get passed over by women that would otherwise be perfectly compatible with you. Online personal ads are no different and while you might be a true catch, what your personals says is the only thing potential dates has to go on when evaluating you. With that in mind, crafting the best possible personal profile that talks up your finer points while staying grounded in the reality of who you are.
A recent article in the Houston Chronicle outlined an online service that offers profile makeovers to take your dating profile from a dud to a magnet for the kind of people you are hoping to meet. The basis of the service and good advice for anyone is to use what makes you a unique person and accentuate those aspects of yourself through what you write. Any personals can include something about how you're looking for someone you connect with. Instead, put in some unique hobbies or aspects of your personality that someone might not see in the other 50 ads they look at that night.
Of course, photos go a long way towards attracting great singles to your profile and one service, LookBetterOnline.com, has focused specifically on that issue, connecting online singles with professional photographers. Just as in the text of your profile, you want to convey what makes you the fun, unique person you claim to be through the picture you choose. Whether you use a service or simply take another pass over your online dating profile, remember to include yourself in the ad and steer clear of cliches used a million times on the same dating site. Stand out from the dating crowd. Don't blend in.
