Make Your Online Dating Personal Ad Great!
New to Online Dating? Trying to find the christian soulmate of your dreams through the web? You need to have a Good Personal Ad or Dating Profile.
Some people don't believe me when I tell them that most problems with not enough responses to your Ad can be fixed just by writing a better Ad. Check out the profiles on your average online dating site. Start reading out profiles, you won't believe that so many people write such terrible ads! Maybe it is this overvalued notion of writing whatever comes to your mind, letting it flow, being you - which leads you to write gibberish in your ads. Say goodbye to any success in online dating with that. Think what would happen if NASA Engineers became spontaneous?
So stop your Dating shuttle from crashing and read these examples of common Mistakes in Dating Profiles. Have a laugh, but be careful, your own profile may have bugs too! (All examples are real)
..."I am an Honest, Spontaneous, Creative, Intelligent (..other personal adjectives) ...person."
Very few people think they are not, so this is very subjective (same as the fact that 80% people believe that they have an IQ above average!). Even if true, it is redundant information at best. Avoid using personal adjectives in your Ad or Profile. Define yourself concretely-better to say I am a Guitar player in a Band or I write Novels or I am a practising Doctor than I am Creative or Intelligent.
.."I am a funny, witty person...."
Funny and witty people never write that directly. Instead of saying this, add a touch of humor to your profile.
"I was just bored, so wrote my profile here..."
A negative attitude. Instead, say, "I am new to this..."
..."I am not interested in guys who are bitter and boring..."
No one is. Use the Ad mostly to tell what you like, not what you don't like. Agreeability is a must have in first introductions.
..."I am looking for a REAL man/woman, with all the letters of REAL..."
Everyone is real. Basically, don't worry, sounds like you have had some bad experiences in relationships, but that's over now. Come with a positive attitude to Online Dating, and just meet the people. Then when you email them and meet them in person, you can decide if they are real or not.
..."I like taking walks by the ocean, or watching TV, or going camping with my friends..."
Unimportant details. Most people like these things, and these are hardly important details in finding a partner (it is unlikely you won't like going out with someone just because they don't like walking the beach or watching TV with you).SingleC.com
