How to write good profiles for dating
As I discuss in my free online dating guide, successful online dating relies in part on making great first impressions.Whether the first impression is in the photos you select for your profile, how you describe yourself, or the first email you write, taking time to make the best first impression is important.I would write overly long and, in my head, witty emails that very rarely received responses. My rule here is very simple: keep your first email very short.Once, I wrote no less than two pages based on a girl’s heading to her profile. I thought I was making conversation but all I was making was a girl scared. Give anything longer than three sentences a good, hard look before sending.
With online dating, the first message can make or break your chances of a successful first date.
This advice may still be helpful for sites such as e Harmony or Chemistry.com, however these services guide the communication and there is less “emailing” early on.
Writing the online dating first email is the area where I made the biggest mistakes for the longest period of time when I was dating online.
Your dating “nickname” or “username” is the first thing that people will notice.
A good profile name will make a good first impression that encourages people to read your profile.
As you do this, you will probably get more ideas so feel free to tweak, embellish and add in any additional words that spring to mind.
