The best thing about online dating is that it’s so easy to be blunt. You can make up a profile about yourself and very clearly state what a woman needs to do to be someone you could fall in love with. This is a pretty shockingly clear way to put it, but if you’re serious about meeting a woman who fits your expectations and has what you need in a long term goal kind of way, look online. Be honest, and build the profile that’s going to snag you the woman of your dreams.
Get the Right Profile Pic
First of all, don’t have anything gross in your background. Wipe down the wall, clean off the bathroom mirror, or at least put your boxers away before you snap a pic with them in the background. Next up? Get a good picture of your face. Your abs should be showcased in another picture, but for now focus on those baby blues and the bright smile that goes with them. Smile to seem open, but look slightly off camera; women think that men who look into the camera (imitating eye contact) look too eager according to recent studies.
Put in Your Hobbies and Interests
This is about love, and love might be able loving poetry and long walks on the beach but it’s also about loving certain foods and long car trips sharing a radio. You need to have things in common with a woman before you can even think about dating her long term. Make sure to load up your profile with the most interesting of your hobbies and the best things of your musical and television tastes. If you’re a nerd, let it show. If you love watching sports, don’t lie about it: it’s better she know now than when she becomes a game time widow.
Make It a Little Bit Longer than Average
If you’re looking to attract a quality woman then build a quality profile. There’s nothing that stands out on a dating site more than a thoughtful answer to a question, so give yourself a paragraph or two for every subject. This means that your profile will be a bit longer than normal, and that’s a good thing. Women are tired of reading one word answers to things that let them know that this guy likes “stuff” and “cooking food ” and “playing video games.” Put some detail in and you’ll stand out in her memory.
Be Careful with the Username
“CoolGuy1981” might get all the women looking to hookup tonight, but no one wants to be married to CoolGuy1981. Make your username anything other than that, whether it’s a pop culture reference or something from a book or even an interesting phrase from a line of poetry. Whatever it is, don’t put anything crude. You might in fact be the “P0ssyMast3r” but you’re not going to be impressing the women with a username like that. If you have to make a new account to get something a little better, go for it. Sometimes you make profiles that you regret and should be abandoned.
