So, when it comes to your dating profile, your spelling and grammar need to be impeccable. You also need to be very aware of the character limit.
Here’s what this guy’s profile card description says: “Hello i am [name] and looking for my miss perfect but i dont want to rush in to any thing.
I would say i am honest, hardworking, caring and polite.
Also, when taking photos, always try to apply the Rule of Thirds. What really screws this guy up though, is the opening phrase, “Well… Someone who enjoys going out or staying in to have a good time. You might as well say “I enjoy women who enjoy things.” He also enjoys nature, sports, and cooking good food. If you want a woman to write back to you after reading your profile, your description about yourself had better be interesting, humorous, intriguing, clever, thoughtful and well-written. Remember, the 3 things a woman sees first are your headline, your main photo, and your personal description.
It’s a simple rule of thumb for good picture composition. I enjoy nature and the outdoors, sports and cooking good food.” Could this description of who he is and what he’s looking for be any more vague or boring? Not to mention he doesn’t get any gold stars for grammar, having missed the word “an” that should have gone between “with” and “honest.” He then says that he wants someone who enjoys “going out or staying in to have a good time”. If you don’t get these right—like the vast majority of men who are online right now don’t—you might as well save yourself the time and skip online dating altogether. Even if you manage to get your foot in the door, you won’t last.
If you don’t already have exciting pictures of yourself, the best thing to do is have someone else take the photo so you can avoid situations like we see above. If someone care of you so must get inside the soul, find a way to… But blasting out a line like that, before even giving a person a reason to put up with your BS, is just plain stupid. Nobody owes us anything, least of all love, affection and respect. By saying something like, “I’m hard to deal with”, you’re essentially demanding that the other person walk into a disastrous relationship without any upside at all. Yet, the people who really love us still deal with us. Because we earned their love and respect first, and then had the occasional douche episode. You’ve admitted it to yourself, so you’re half way there already. This isn’t the kind of picture you want to have as your main one. Not being able to look directly into a camera—and smile—says a lot about you. When your main profile pic shows you looking directly into the camera smiling, it says that you’re comfortable in your own skin.
