I have to figure there’s some really rich, really happy eccentric out there who’s collecting millions from the following profile, rampant in popularity: Looking for my soul mate, are you out there?
The dating profile headline is a one-time lightning-quick opportunity to show a little flair, and highlight something about your personality or a special interest.The tagline can showcase your wit, a love of poetry, sense of humor, a romantic or philosophical nature, etc.We frequently get requests for help from Plenty of Fish(see our review on POF) and Match (our review on Match) members for advice on making their online dating profiles more appealing.Typically, the alarm bells start clanging as soon as we see their profile taglines: 90% of these taglines are either typical (overused and boring) or slightly needy.Too bad most of them are blowing a great opportunity to grab your attention, and make you want to dig deeper.
Let’s be realistic—most of us enter zip code and age parameters, and then narrow the criteria with a custom search for a word of interest, such as 'brewpub', 'warriordash', or 'camping' Then, as soon as humanely possible we get to the photos.
If the photos don’t cut it, we generally don’t click on the person. But if we make it past the photo, skimming profiles, the first thing you'll notice is the profile tagline.
This little ditty can compel us to read further, or it can cause us to roll our eyes and move on.
) and I luv to laugh (right…because who doesn’t hate a good belly laugh) lol (that’s an abbreviation just in case you didn’t understand the word laugh) As for “luv” – is it really so taxing to fill out all 4 letters in the word love?
If you’re going to go as far as writing three letters then, for the love of god man, just add one more letter!
Point is, don’t write a profile that’s like everyone else’s. I’ve noticed that many singles dating online don’t bother putting much effort into their online dating profiles.
