Print Version: Writing an Effective Online Dating Profile

Writing an Effective Online Dating Profile

Internet dating can be scary and, for some, a step into the unknown. Mature Matches is a 50 plus dating site which uses advanced tools to help daters find people that match their emotional needs.

Meeting someone for the first time online is completely different to meeting face-to-face, but there are similarities. When you introduce yourself in real life, your personality shows through your body language and the way you conduct yourself. The same happens online - you are immediately judged, but through only text and pictures. The importance of an effective introduction is paramount.

We know it's not easy writing about yourself, but this article explains the key points to creating an effective dating profile. Keep to the following basic rules to ensure your search for love online is a success.

Be Yourself

First and foremost... it sounds obvious, but you need to be yourself. It is easy to hide behind the internet, but your internet dating profile should not be misleading. Try to write how you talk to express your personality. Be honest and sincere, and remember - sarcasm is hard to detect online!

Be Interesting

Talk about your interests and hobbies. Elaborate on specific life events or achievements. Even if you think people aren't going to be interested you should include enough to demonstrate that you are a well-rounded and interesting individual.

Don't ramble, but be proud of the places you've been and things you've done - without coming across as arrogant (ofcourse!).

Relax and Punctuate

Put yourself in the shoes of someone reading your profile for the first time. Be sure to use grammar and punctuation correctly. Reading text without fullstops feels rushed. If your reader doesn't feel at ease reading about you, they certainly won't feel at ease around you.

Try to Stand Out

Don't be afraid to be different and think out of the box whilst writing your profile. Imagine your persona in real life - if you immediately stand out, people will naturally be intrigued to find out more about you.

Ask Questions

By asking your audience questions, you stimulate their thought process, making it much easier for them should they wish to contact you. Think of it like an ice-breaker.

Don't forget… online dating should be fun. Enjoy writing your profile and you can be sure that people will enjoy reading it. Good luck, and happy dating!
