Now, don’t go and copy the entire profile, but stick with the overall themes that worked for you.
We’re not trying to burst anyone’s bubble, but it’s probably only a good idea to talk about sex in your dating profile if you’re on a site just for that, like Be Naughty, not a mainstream one like Match, Zoosk, or e Harmony.
Writing your profile is the first step of online dating, but it’s also the most important, and sometimes the most stressful, part.
This is what singles will use to determine if they’re interested in you, and if your profile doesn’t attract them within those initial 10 seconds or so, they’ll move on to someone else. Getting your profile right is actually pretty easy and straightforward.
Using proper spelling and grammar in your dating profile is vital, especially for men.
A study by Grammarly, a writing-enhancement app and browser add-on, shows men with just two spelling mistakes in their dating profile are 14% less likely to get a response.
Think about how you would feel if you read a guy’s profile that said something like “I want a blonde, blue-eyed woman who isn’t over 5’5″, is a doctor, doesn’t smoke, has never been married, loves dogs but hates cats, enjoys Italian food but hates Indian food, knows every word to every Beatles song, and has visited all Seven Wonders of the World.” OK, that’s an extreme example, but you know what I mean.
