Writing An Online Dating Service Profile? 3 Mistakes You Must Avoid…

Well, after 4 years of reading far in excess of 10,000 profiles of men and women searching for a partner through online dating services, I’ve laughed at my fair share of poorly written introductions…

Of those 10,000 online dating service profiles, no more than a dozen captured our attention enough to make the first move. I’m sure that you wish to get lots of reactions to your online dating service advertisement, otherwise why would you bother joining a site, and paying a fee to meet new people?

If that is the case, then make sure you avoid the following 3 mistakes at all costs:

1. “I May Be the one you’re Seeking For”

This may be the case. However, by employing this combination of words anywhere for your online dating service profile, you arent telling me, or your potential suitor, anything new…

What this line does say to someone checking you out is that the online dating service profiler didnt do a lot of thinking about how they wanted to present themselves. Tell people what gets your eyes twinkling or even what REALLY gets you up in the morning – and dont say its your alarm clock, either. Now is the time to let your passions really shine through…

2. “I’m the one Your Mother Warned You About”

This is, from my research in any case, virtually the most overused phrase in an opening line for online dating service profiles. True, its the generic option of some of the larger sites (such as Lavalife or even True) if your profile is awaiting approval, this tag line will show up while waiting for the a-okay…

To avoid this, come up with something a bit more unique and original. But what if you arent sure how to do this? Well, its not hard to take a look at your competition in the online dating service field, so why not do a quick search and see what everyone else is doing?

Reading other peoples description of themselves could just get your creative juices flowing. At the very least, it’ll explain what everyone else is saying about themselves and what key phrases and words you should avoid in turn…

3. Glaring Spelling or even Grammatical Mistakes

This tip might seem childish, or even trite but its critically important. While chatting with someone online, you may make a few spelling mistakes that a potential suitor will find annoying. However until you get to that stage with someone, no one should know that you’ve got dyslexia, or just cant spell worth beans…

It shows a lot to a potential suitor while they peruse the online dating services that someone has taken the time to spell check their document. Hell, get a friend to proof read it for you if want just in case youve missed something important…

However if you can’t take the time to write something legible, virtually all people perusing the online dating service websites will assume you wont have time to bother doing other, even more important tasks. And when you only have two or three of seconds to make that first impression before someone clicks on another person each and every detail counts…
