Putting together a first class profile is a really important part of online dating.
Don’t choose a picture where you are not the main focal point. Summer lovin’ ‘Our latest research found that people in summery photographs were seen as more attractive than in their winter pics,’ says Kate. It’s good to love yourself but there is a line that should not be crossed. A profile that mentions family and friends, volunteering, and enjoying spending time with kids is a good sign.
‘You wouldn’t introduce yourself to someone in a bar with your entire life history, so don’t do it online,’ says match.com‘s Kate.
‘Women have a tendency to write too much because we enjoy reading long profiles. Imagine you are doing an icebreaker introduction where you have to sum yourself up briefly.’ Most people want to find someone who can make them laugh, so show people you have a sense of humour.
Many people find poor grammar and spelling a turn off, and the best of us can make mistakes, so be careful on this point.
Put your profile into Word and use your computer spell check for peace of mind.
