How to Know When Your Current Profile Isn’t Working

“You are not getting the kind of result that you expected”

Most guys don’t like to admit it, but a big part of using dating sites involves just waiting around. You can spend all day or all week working on your profile, but it’s not going to eliminate your wait times. You’ve still got to be patient when it comes to waiting for women to start a conversation with you or reply to one of your messages. If you can’t wait, you’re never going to stick around long enough to actually meet anyone. What if you’ve gone a really long time without hearing from anyone, though? How can you tell the difference between a message drought and a problem with your profile? It’s true that the issue could stem from a sub par profile. If you didn’t put enough effort in, it might not be good enough to attract women. A valuable tool is knowing when your page isn’t actually working. Here are a few ways you can figure out when you need to switch things up instead of wasting your time waiting.

It’s Been Months and No One Has Said Anything

It’s true that patience is a virtue. Being patient can get you pretty far in a lot of areas in life. Even on dating sites, you need to have a certain amount of patience. Going a few weeks without any interesting leads is normal. However, if you signed up on the site months or even a year ago, and you still haven’t seen success, something has gone wrong. Even the worst profiles should get a few people interested every now and then. You might want to consider switching which site you’re using. It’s also a good time to take a look at your profile. Scrapping it and starting over from scratch might be a good idea.

Women Reply but Never Seem Very Interested

If you’re getting replies but you’re still not getting anywhere, you can end up really frustrated. It’s like having a fish constantly nibbling on your hook, but you can never seem to catch it. What’s going on with that? If you find that you can’t seal the deal, take a look at yourself. How are you messaging women? Is there something that’s turning them off before they can decide they want to be with you? Don’t keep letting these ladies just pass you by. Find out what’s keeping them from committing to you.

Someone Insults Something On Your Page

Here’s how you really know that something has gone wrong with your profile. When someone starts trash talking your page directly, you need to fix it right away. Getting insulted is no fun at all. In fact, it’s the opposite of what you want on a dating site. When a woman tells you that something on your page is garbage, that means it probably is. She’s not just lying to get a rise out of you. Fix it as soon as possible if you want to start getting messages that are worth something. Otherwise, you can just expect more abuse.
